Manic Monday Again!

Happy Monday!!
(If you say it with enthusiasm it will make it better right? LOL)

I am linking up with Classroom Freebies for their Manic Monday.
Classroom Freebies Manic Monday

Here is my freebies for today... it's a PowerPoint of 7 writing prompts used for narratives and descriptive writings along with a writing rubric you can adjust for any type of writing.

I used these prompts last year and the students had so much fun with them. I left it as a PPT so that you can edit as needed and also add more if you wish.


I hope your students enjoy them as much as mine did!

Here is the rubric I used which worked well for me.  It is saved as a .doc so you can adjust as needed to suit you.

I'm having trouble displaying the rubric here... Google Docs is not cooperating with this file.  Go HERE to check it out! :)

Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you think. :)
Luv ya!

New TPT products: Unsolved Mysteries, Banners, & more!

Hi guys!

I have been working on some new products for my TPT store.  Check out what I have posted!

I finally finished with the Unsolved Mysteries project.  I posted about this back in July.  This is the project that helps students draw their own conclusions based on evidence they gather about unsolved mysteries in the world.  Here is what some of the unsolved mysteries are: Loch Ness Monster, Big Foot, Atlantis, and many more!

This is what you receive with this product:
Powerpoint with an outline of the project
Directions in PDF format
Stationary in PDF format for the final draft of the research report
Labels for the students research folders
Folder cover in PDF format

The project has 6 parts to it.
Research
Map of Research Site
Interview
Evidence from Site
Research Paper
Presentation - done in partners or group

There are many ways you could run this project and adapt it to your class.  Last year I had the students work in partners or groups of three right from the beginning, but this year I'm going to keep it independent until the presentation where they get together as a group to reveal their findings.

This is a fun and very different research project than what the students are typically used to.

Check it out at my TPT store for $4.00!


I also made some pennants and banners! :) I was so excited when I finally figured out how to make them.
You saw them in my classroom pictures post here and then I posted them for sale in my TPT store.

Here's what I made (which I'm very excited about if you couldn't tell already) :)

I took the pennants and placed them together for the sample file so everyone could see how it goes together.  The letters are to be printed on a 8.5 X 11 inch piece of paper. 

This product includes the following pennant files:
1st grade          2nd grade              3rd grade          4th grade          5th grade      6th grade
History        Math        Reading       Science        Spelling        Writing

Go check it out HERE and download the sample file.  If it's something you would like, I just dropped the price to $3.00.  If you want something added to the set just let me know. :)

I also have PowerPoints that are for Where the Red Fern Grows and Bridge to Terabithia that have reading response questions and quizzes for only $2.00.  I am currently working on Dollhouse Murders and City of Ember.



That is all for today! I'll be back tomorrow with an awesome freebie for Manic Monday!! :)

Luv ya!
