I Got My T-Shirt For The TpT Conference!

I just received my t-shirt for the TpT Conference in Vegas!

I will be styling in Vegas for the conference.     

If you are in the market for a super t-shirt, I would highly recommend these folks.  They did a wonderful job of communicating with me.  A HUGE shout out to Elisha S. for making my shirt look darn good!  It was so easy to design my shirt and place the order.  I immediately received notification that they had gotten it.  Elisha was concerned about the graphics for my logo.  As you can see from the picture, no problem!  My shirt arrived 5 days after placing the order.  Can you imagine getting a high-quality product that quickly?  

They are a multi-talented company.  They also do teacher apparel, amazing class shirts, and custom designed products.  If you like bling, they have it!  

Seriously, you should check them out!

These Photographs Are Worth More Than a 1,000 Words

     I am in the process of creating a cross-curriculum project to be used in Science, Language Arts, and/or Social Studies. I am attempting to introduce students to different countries via animals.  

     Who doesn’t like animals, right?  I did not want to use all clip art (as cute as it may be) because I felt it would take away from the information.  Instead, I chose to use photographs of the animals.

Well, since my first lap book/ center activity dealt with elephants, I couldn’t just go out to my backyard and snap a photo.

Thank you, Z is for Zebra! He has wonderful photos.  If you do not believe me, check out this freebie!  

If you are in the market for superbly taken photographs, I highly recommend Z is for Zebra.

     His photographs are making my lap book/center activities jump! His photos would also be fantastic for covers.  

Inside and Outside Character Trait Mini-book FREEBIE!

        I have created a new FREEBIE!  Doesn’t everyone love a freebie?!  
I found that sometimes my students had a tendency to forget there were several types of character traits.  They were so busy finding the physical traits, they forgot about the emotional (or inside) traits (or the opposite). I created this mini-book to take away the confusion.
I am sure this mini-book will help students find, record and prove (through textual evidence) character traits. 
It is quick and easy to make.  I’ve also added a mini-book blank page template (printable) for additional recording of traits. 

This is a great activity to include in a Reader’s Notebook or an interactive notebook.
