Volleyball season officially started August 1st so I have spent everyday in a gym for hours. My girls have been my focus and I've neglected this lil ol' blog of mine!
I promise I still have been thinking about teaching... a lot! Just not time to share all my thoughts :(
I've been crafting and can't wait to show you what I've been up to on Monday Made-It!
This will be quick since I've spent the last 7 hours in a gym and I miss my hubs!
I have been looking for a way to get my writers more motivated during work on writing, and display their writing options. I have seen numerous tri-folds floating around Pinterest, but none have been geared towards upper elementary; they've been a little too easy or simple for my fourthies. So of course, I decided to create my own :)
A Chevron, glitter, bright colors, and chalkboard tri-fold Writing Center Starter Kit.
Seriously, all of my favs in one!
This kit offers 5 writing motivational posters and check lists for writers, 9 different writing direction options, and templates for each type of writing. It also includes letters to make a cute header for the tri-fold.
I plan on building mine WITH my students at the beginning of the year by doing a mini-lesson on each type of writing before we add it to the board. I will make a sample one though tomorrow so I can show a preview of what it all can look like :)
In the meantime... this product will be a FLASH FREEBIE in celebration of a day away from volleyball for me tomorrow, and some friends being in from out of town! Until 6pm tonight you can get it for FREE at my TPT store. All I ask is you leave me some love if you like it and try not to mention it's free because then it confuses later buyers :)
