Writing Posters

Hi everyone! I just created my latest freebie, which is a group of writing posters - it basically tells a sentence or two about each type of writing: descriptive, narrative, expository, persuasive and creative writing.  I absolutely love scrappin doodles, graphics from the pond, and kevin and amanda fonts, so they are all included as well in my newest product :)
If you like what you see, I'd love if you gave me a shout out and become a follower :)
Click here for TPT users, and here for TN users! Enjoy!

Writing Paper

This is cute but very simple writing paper I created for my students in our stationery section.  They typically would use some of these for Daily 5 and Free Writing.
There are some paper printables that have dotted lines for students in third grade learning cursive.  Scrappin doodles graphics were used :)

Classroom Freebies

I'll admit, I've been a little MIA!  I blame it on pretty weather and a busy summer. I'm back though with only 20 days left before B2S for me.  My classroom theme this year is Polka-dots and Chevron.  Here are some freebies for you to grab!

Clock Minute Intervals
Happy Birthday Cards 

Welcome Pennant Banner ( I wish I had a finished one to show! I need a laminator...)

Grab them at 

I'll be back with some more Freebies soon! 

Parent Contact Sheet Freebie

Although many school districts have student and parent contact information available online through programs such as School Tool, I still always like to have a paper copy of that information. This form includes areas for both student and parent/guardian contact information (name, address, phone number, e-mail, etc..) It also includes several survey questions to be completed by the parent about their child's strengths, areas of weakness, goals, and motivation. 
I've left it in Word format so you can add or delete questions, change the background, etc to customize the form any way you want it.
Just click on the picture above to head over to my blog to check it out!

Show Me Sunday: Educational Time Fillers

Ready or not, school is right around the corner for most of us. For this month's Show Me Sunday, I'd love to read about your educational time fillers. No matter how carefully we plan and prepare, we all run into those empty pockets of time occasionally. Maybe the bathroom break before specials went just a little bit faster than it usually does or our science experiment went up in smoke (literally!). In moments like that, a simple educational time filler can be your best friend. I'm hoping this month's linky party will give you lots of new ideas. Please link up with me by sharing your favorite go-to activities to fill those few extra minutes of "down time" we sometimes get during the day.

I went first and shared several of my ideas over on my blog, Ms. Fultz's Corner. Click on over to read all about them and then link up to share yours too. I can't wait to try out your new ideas!

Yearly Planning Guide

Every year at the start of the year,  Simone uses this planning guide to map out her curriculum for the whole year. It is divided into 4 marking periods and it is broken up by week. It is marked with her district's marking periods/days off, but because it's a word document you can easily tweak it to work for you.  Thanks, Simone!
   Hop on over to get your freebie:  Simone's Math Resources

Happy Planning!
