Long Time No See!

It seems that I've gotten into the habit of posting about once a month.  It's definitely not my intention, but as soon as I blink the month has gone and I have not posted more than once!  *Ugh*  This needs to change.  I have so much going on in my classroom that I want to share.  I just need to find the time!

For today, I'm linking up with some amazing blogs to share some freebies.  The first blog I'm linking up with is Freebielicious.  Have you checked out this blog? If you are a K-2 teacher and have not been there just stop reading right now and head on over.  It is amazing!

My freebie for this link up is my Responding to Nonfiction - Informational Text Graphic Organizer.

The other incredible blog I'm linking up with is Farley's Oh Boy Fourth Grade!  Check her out, she has so many resources and not just for 4th grade!

Here is my December Currently (please excuse the overlapping words):
I don't know why the words are overlapping, they aren't in my picture but then they overlap when I upload it.  *Technology*   
Go link up with Farley!  Don't forget the rule of 3! Head on over to 2 before your link and comment and then go back to Farley's site and leave a comment at the 1 behind yours :)

Here is another freebie for you, for sticking with me!  This is a Venn Diagram for Comparing the Key Ideas in two texts.  My class compared the Three Little Pigs with The Three Fish and the Big Bad Shark (they LOVE that version!)

And, my friends, I leave you with this, because who doesn't need a little "Elf" in their lives:


  1. Best of luck on the classroom elf! Make sure you post about it on your blog. I'm a new follower, so I'll be looking. :-)

  2. I love that you are sending cards to a nursing home! My grandma is in one and I know that would definitely brighten up her day! :) I'm your newest follower! :)
