Common Core- Writing to Inform All Year Long!

I'm so excited to share my latest Common Core writing packet with all of you! I designed this supplemental resource to make it easier to reinforce the Common Core informational/explanatory writing standard for first grade {W.1.2}. It includes graphic organizers that can be used for organizing ideas for any informational piece, writing prompt sheets for the entire year {all major holidays, seasons, etc.}, informational and explanatory task cards, editing checklists, and reflection sheets.

Turkey Fever!!!!

Turkey fever has hit my classroom BIG time! So much fun! My kids turned in their "Turkey in Disguise" projects last week & ohhhhh my goodness, they are just too cute!!!!

Adorable, huh?!?!?! 
 I found this activity a few years ago on an amazing website-Mrs.Nelson's Class. She has the turkey printable I used {printed them on cardstock}, as well as a parent letter to send home to explain the project for FREE!! That's right, FREE!!! Thank you, Mrs. Nelson!!! 

To incorporate writing into the activity, I made a "Meet My Turkey" printable to go with their precious turkeys! They had a blast coming up with their responses!! You can download a free copy of my "Meet My Turkey" printable by just clicking on the picture!

My sweeties are also working hard and having fun with my Gobble, Gobble, Gobble Math and Literacy Centers!!
