I have been reading some of your posts about TpT having a sale on the 29th for Leap Day so I am going to change my Giveaway a little bit. Instead of announcing the winner on Thursday, I am going to announce it on Wednesday morning. Then whoever wins will be able to use the gift card during the sale. I am also opening the giveaway up to everyone! If you are a follower just leave me a comment. If you blogged about my giveaway go ahead and write two comments. Thanks for all your support!And thanks for all the birthday wishes!

Click here to enter the giveaway! Good luck everyone!

I wanted to share an activity I did this week during our writers workshop time. We have started our Small Moments Unit and finally got to use an activity from Kristen at Ladybug Teacher Files. We first talked about what a small moment was and I used my cute poster I had made. Then we read the story

While we were reading we talked about figurative/descriptive language. I used Kristen's worksheet for the kids to record their findings.

I also created this little poster that I am going to place on our writers workshop board.

I hope everyone has a SUPER DUPER Sunday!

I adore that poster Kelley!!I am going to print it out in a minute--I SO could have used that last week (but still can, of course!). Thanks so much for the shoutout...I'm glad you could use the printable. AND...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I wanted to comment on that post, but it's a giveaway so I'll have to wait 'til tomorrow when I blog about it so I can enter. Happy birthday girl!

Thanks so much for freebie and the link to the great printable! I've been a little mia lately but I wanted to say I'm so happy that things are looking up for you! :) My husband used to travel a lot for work and I always hate when he was gone and I had a bad day at work. It makes such a difference to have them there!
