Whooo Loves Writing Stations?

Lori, from Teaching With Love and Laughter, has created some great new units called Writing Right Through!  The units cover two months and offer lots of different choices.  I am always up to adding new things to my Writing Station.  These are definitely worth a look!


What do you think about these great new units?  Leave me a line to tell me what you use in your classroom.

And the winner is...

I was so excited to see such a great response to my first giveaway (that closed at noon EST today).  I hoped to get up to 100 followers but was pleasantly surprised when I looked and had...drumroll, please...142 followers.  It almost made me want to do a cartwheel, but I thought that might not be the best idea as it could end with a trip to the ER (since I haven't done a cartwheel since cheering in Jr. High - "GO PANTHERS")...and I wouldn't want that to spoil my celebration.  :/  

ABC Writing Journal available on TPT

I promised to give away 3 journals, and Rafflecopter generated the following winners...

* Entry #195 - Heather J. Bryant
* Entry #293 - Pamela Guerra
* Entry #162 - Sarah Wenzinger

Because I was SO excited about getting to 142 followers, I had Rafflecopter choose a 4th winner.  :)

* Entry #107 - Lyza Jo

Please reply with your e-mail addresses, and I will get your ABC Writing Journal to you in a jiffy.

I loved all the suggestions of ways that y'all would use this ABC Writing Journal in your classroom.  Some were exactly what I had in my mind for my own classroom, and others were great ideas I hadn't thought to do.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that Jennifer L has an area of her Writing Station called "Letter Expert".  Since I am gonna have to steal implement that in my own classroom, I am going to give Jennifer the ABC Writing Journal for FREE as well.  :)

CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners. 

Thanks again for the great response.  I will be posting lots of FREEBIES and new TPT Creations throughout the summer.  My district uses the Macmillan McGraw-Hill Treasures Reading Series so lots of my units and freebies will correlate with the Treasures Kindergarten Series.  Please leave me a note and tell me what Reading Series you use in your classroom.

Be a blessing to those you teach,

ABC Writing Journal Giveaway

I am very excited to say that I have finally finished my first creation for TPT - an ABC Writing Journal.  This is something that I wanted to make for my own classroom, but I thought some of you all might like it, too.

Here are some samples from the packet that show types of pages for EACH letter.  All pages are available in D'Nealian and Zaner Bloser options.


I am using Rafflecopter to give away my ABC Writing Journal to three lucky winners!
