Holiday Elf Editing Activity

I have been hard at work creating my latest product, just in time for the holiday season.  It's the second in my series holiday editing stories.  It is a 4 day editing story called "The Diary of Jingles the Elf".  

Two of the teachers I work with introduced me to this idea by sharing a Halloween editing story that we use every year. The students LOVE it!  In fact, they loved it so much they begged me to create another one for Thanksgiving, which I did!  Guess what they asked for next?  That's right! One for the December holidays!

The best part is that each story ends with a surprise for the class (which is optional), but it really creates a "buy-in" for the activity.  The kiddos are having so much fun, they hardly notice that they are learning!  

Happy Shopping!

First Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt


What do you do when you need a plan for Tech Lab on Monday?  Create a web quest!  I was so happy with the way it turned out, I decided to include it in my TPT store.  

The First Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt web quest utilizes the website The First Thanksgiving by Scholastic. There are 42 questions that will lead students through each part of the website.  The web quest sends students on a scavenger hunt to discover and collect all the nuggets of knowledge it imparts. The web quest is divided in three parts:  The Mayflower, Daily Life, and The Feast. It is a fun way to review a Pilgrim Unit or assign an extra credit project over the Thanksgiving holiday.  

The two people to leave a comment will get a free copy!  Enjoy!

Dress Up Your Teacher for Halloween!

This time last year, I saw an adorable Halloween writing activity.  I couldn't wait to use it this year.  The problem is, I can't find it!  I thought I pinned it, but it's not where I thought I would put it.  This is my attempt to recreate it.  I can't wait to try it with my class!

Prepare for the activity by following the directions below.  You don't have to crop your head onto the file.  But it makes the activity more fun!

When you introduce the lesson, tell your kiddos that you are invited to a Halloween party and you don't know what costume you should wear.  There is no doubt that each of them will have a suggestion.  Now is the time to give them their assignment! 

The students should use rich vocabulary and specific details to describe the costume.  If possible, have the students work privately and independently.  Once everyone is finished, have them take turns presenting their ideas.   Did you notice that I chose a witch for my example?  This character will be off-limits!  But there are many other options! 

Below is a slide show of my students' work.  I love seeing their imaginations at work! If you would like to try this with your class for Halloween, you can this product in my TPT store.  Enjoy!

New! Scratch-Off Sticker Rewards….Will You Win a Set?

If you are like me, you are always looking for new and innovative ways to motivate your students.  This is why I am SO excited to offer a new product in my TPT store….Scratch-Off Stickers.

When I introduced Scratch-Off Sticker Rewards to my kiddos, I could not have predicted the level of excitement it would create in my classroom.  I had always wanted to have them, but did not want to go to the trouble buying ingredients, mixing a concoction, and painting it on tape.  When I discovered the stickers, I new I had to share them you!  

The following shows the SIMPLE steps to create these rewards.

1.  Order and download one of my Scratch-Off Ticket Rewards 
     templates.  The templates in my store fit the Scratch-Off 
     Stickers perfectly!  Click here for to get your first set "Owl-
     Theme" set for FREE.

2.  Write in the rewards of your choice in the gray rectangle.

3.  Place the Scratch-Off Stickers on top of the written reward.

4.  Use a coin (it works best) to scratch-off the sticker and reveal the reward.

That's it!  SIMPLE!

Scratch-Off Rewards are an excellent tool to help children reach positive goals in academics, behavior, organization, or any other out needed in school, at home, within groups, etc.  The possibilities are endless.  

Each order includes 30 individual stickers.  

Check out the other Reward Templates in my TPT Store:

Includes Welcome to Kinder, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Grade

I am so excited about these products that I am going to giveaway a set of 30 Scratch-Off Stickers and your choice of a Scratch-Off Reward product.  OR, visit my TPT Store which is part of the Back to School Rally Sale!  Hurry, as it ends on August 6th!
