2-I have been working on cleaning up my Nonfiction Writing Unit for TPT and I finally finished. It is a unit that I have used for the last few years. It allows the students their own personal choice in their writing. If you are interested you can Pin it to Win it. I'll choose a winner on Sunday. Just put the address of your pin and your e-mail in the comments section of this post.
3. While I was busy being productive I created a freebie for my biome writing unit. This is the plan sheet that I used with my kiddos to create our biome posters earlier this year.
5. I'm also linking up with Forever in First's linky My Teacher Always Says. When I first read about this linky it made me think of this book My Teacher Likes to Say.
Here are some of my "My Teacher Always Says:"
I normally say this one when the kids are talking or wasting class time. All I have to do is say it in a quiet voice and they give me their attention.
This phrase is something I say all the time...I always want my kiddos to know that our classroom is a safe place to try new things and a safe place for them to be incorrect.
As fourth graders, my students really need to learn to evaluate their choices. When they are starting to make a poor choice I ask them this phrase. For many of them it is all they need to turn it around.
What are your phrases? What do you always say? Hope you all had a fantastic week! Follow my blog with Bloglovin
