Narrative Writing Craftivity

I'm sure we all are feeling it. The "it's the end of the year-let's make it fun" feeling. I know I sure am. We were working on some narrative writing this week and I decided to create a little craftivity to go along with my kiddos writing.

They LOVE it when we do neat little crafts and I LOVE to hear them say "Mrs. Perkins thank you for letting us do fun stuff." I don't let them in on the the little secret that while it is fun to them, they are learning. Shhhh don't tell. Anyway. Here are some pictures of our display board and some of the ones I thought turned out super adorable. Check out the bunny slippers. My favorite part.


This is up for sale in my TPT shop. It contains the templates for the craft with 2 versions of the boy and girl face, a prewriting page to generate ideas, details, and a closing sentence, and two versions of writing paper. BUUUUUTTTTT sometimes I just like to give freebies to my followers so if you took the time to read my post, please comment below with your email address and I will send this to you for FREE! Thanks for being a follower. Have a happy weekend!!

Multiplication Freebie and Teacher Appreciation Sale

Last week I wrote a post about what we had been up to with multiplication in my room. I have since made a little freebie for you with some multiplication games. I can't take credit for the ideas. I had seen them somewhere before but can't remember where so I decided to try to whip up some myself that were similar to what I had seen. The mini packet contains 3 games {Racing Multiplication, Multiplication Tic Tac Toe, and Dog Bone Multiplication}. Click on the picture to get them for free.

In other news I'm sure everyone has heard that TPT is having a teacher appreciation sale May 7th through May 8th and Teachers Notebook is having their sale from May 4th through May 10th. Both of my shops {TPT and TN} will be 20% off. At TPT you can use the code TAD13 to get another 10% off. At TN you will also receive another 10% off.
