Monday Made it in February

so excited to join one of my blogging BFFs 
for her fabulous linky parties
love ya TARA

I remember a few years back…
Tara and I were messaging each other 
and we were talking about a linky she should start
and look at it NOW…
good job girlie!!! I am proud to say I knew you when *wink*
I LOVE this linky… I don't always get to link up BUT
I do always…. hop on over and really really enjoy looking at all of the creative teachers 
that link up….

look I have some things I can link up this time…
and it is more than ONE…

 I also made his teacher gifts…

you only need brownie mix
a spatula
and my gift tag!!!

this is an easy peasy and cheap gift!!!
This tag is available in my store… look for this…
click on either pic to go check it out

This pack has tons of various tags… 
tags for teachers, parents, and students
and it is one of my BEST SELLERS… 
number 2 to be exact!!!

 Jeff is one of my FAVES…
he has a new book out and I think it is my fave…
I own all of his books and some I own 2 copies…
one for school and one for home…
that is seriously how much I LOVE him

here is the book…
We read it first for enjoyment… as a reader
and then we read it as a writer…
we look for things we know
similes, metaphors, thought shots, sentence structures, transitions, and lots of other things…
I am going to use the anchor charts as a group activity.
Each of my 5 groups will get their own anchor chart,
and then they will lead the class in the discussion about their mentor sentence.
We have done mentor sentences since the first day of school…
so I have high hopes this will be a huge success!!!
THEY LOVE mentor sentences… it is a very friendly way to teach grammar and other writing!!!

Some of my kiddos are just plain stubborn writers 
I love them BUT they are 
STUB to the BORN 
and they sometimes think whatever they put on paper is going to give them a high score…
during my revising and editing sessions with them I am constantly reminding them of all the 
mini lessons we have covered and if they have included some of those in their writing…
(they haven't… usually)
I am hoping this little checklist will make it easier for them to check…
and refer to
and I KNOW it will be easier for me to remind them.

ok I think that about does it…
I am super excited to link up…

head on over to Tara's to link up too
OR you can hop on over and gawk at all of these super talented creative teachers
that have linked up

THANKS TARA for always hosting a FAB PARTAY!!


  1. You have fabulous ideas. I love your cute kid and teacher valentines. Mentor sentences are awesome. I am currently using The Wizard of Oz for my mentor sentence this week. I will have to check out the Bones book. Thanks for sharing!
