A Little Bit of This and a Little Bit of That

I've been really busy creating some new items for TpT!  I posted my most recent item, "Editable Spelling Tic-Tac-Toe Boards" today, so I thought I'd post about it on my blog.  Then I realized that I hadn't posted about some of my other recent items....I have to admit, I need to get better at updating my blog. Click on the pictures below to check out the items in my store.

I've used a spelling tic-tac-toe board to differentiate my students' spelling h.w. since I began teaching.  In this set, you get the tasks that I use with my students (in two versions), plus you get two editable versions so you can add whichever tasks you would like!  That makes this set useful for virtually any grade level. :)

 I recently updated my literature group discussion sheets because I wanted "cuter" forms to use with my students.  My students are currently in three different reading groups ("I Survived..." groups, "39 Clues" groups, and "Found" groups). I meet with all of the groups to check my students' comprehension of the novels they are reading.  When we meet, students will read sections of their discussion sheets to share what they have learned. BTW, my students LOVE these three series, and I highly recommend them!

Next up is a holiday themed communication set that includes various newsletters and stationary that come in a PDF version and an editable version.  Teachers and students can use these forms in the upcoming month of school!

Lastly, I created some festive banners in which you can decorate your classroom!
