Either way, I've been hard at work the past few days. I found some amazing clip art from Michael Rawls and ever since I purchased it, I've been in a creative mood. I am now not only well prepared to start talking about figurative language and dive into poetry with my students, I've also added some awesome resources to my Teachers Pay Teachers account. So even though today is Sunday, which marks the true end to my spring break, and my favorite basketball team, Syracuse, lost last night, I am still in good spirits!
So now I have a poetry writing bundle, each poetry writing style listed individually in case people don't want all 8, a freebie of seasonal poetry, an idiom bundle with task cards and practice with literal and figurative language, AND a simile poster pack. Gosh, I am a creative machine! LOL
Of course, I also did my Sunday TpT purchasing (although during this break there's been a lot more than just Sunday purchasing). I love the task cards from Rachel Lynette so I picked up a main idea, a summarizing, and an author's purpose set. Voila! There's an independent center for my next 3-week unit. I'm pretty sure that I am spending twice what I make on TpT, but hey, it all evens out in the end, right?
Here's a preview of and link to each of my new creations. I hope to get more up in the next few days too, though I know the first few days back will prove to be a tad overwhelming.
Gotta put the freebie first!
