Writing with Word Banks

AH.  I am posting a new product!  I am so excited for this because I know I will use this each and every month.  It's a simple print and go kind of a thing and requires no effort on my end now that it's complete.  

Every year my I start the writing process with my little ones.  It's hard.  I mean really hard for them.  I am thinking they will get it and then they throw me for a loop when they get confused.  It's hard for the little ones to create their own stories and write a sentence without some help or guidance.  But they always seem to get it a little bit faster and quicker when there is a word bank involved.  Somehow and someway the word being there right in front of them gives them the little bit of encouragement and help they needed.  Then from there it becomes a little bit easier.  So here is my sweet idea.

This is the perfect resource for me to have on hand for my little ones.  It will encourage them to write with the fun topics and ideas for each month and it will also give them that little boost of confidence they need to get writing with the word banks.  Here are some of what is included inside.

  Each month has 4 writing printables (possible one sheet a week) that have the holidays, theme or important dates for that particular month.  The students can get excited for writing as that particular holiday or date is approaching.  Some printables have an option for drawing as well.  

This is an example of a holiday sheet perfect for December.  I know my little ones will love it as they get excited to read all of the Gingerbread stories.

Get your class ready for the year with this fun writing pack.  You can grab it by clicking here.  Let me know what you think of it when you do.  I know this is one less stress I have to worry about as writing is always tricky at the beginning of the year.  Make it easier on you and your kiddies by grabbing this.  =)

Really Good Stuff - Teacher Box

Happy Sunday everyone!  As the summer quickly is coming to an end, it's time to start thinking of ideas for back to school. Every year I like to buy myself a few small things for the classroom.  I try not to over do it as I usually do.  I usually see and want everything.  But I think online, I seem to have more control of my buying as I can try to talk myself out of buying things I don't really do.  Does anyone else feel that way? 

My first stop was Really Good Stuff.  I get all my school supplies there as well as incentives for the little ones. Some recent purchases have included the ever so popular privacy shields.  

I use these for everything.  I use them during snack time, (if they are being too rowdy), tests, centers, etc.  They are great quality and last for years.  I have gotten super lucky the last few years.  As teachers have retired or teachers have gotten different positions, I always ask them to have their shields.  I am set for a good decade with this sweet resource.

I also have been in the hunt for some bins.  My room has been mostly neon for the last few years and I do not see that changing anytime soon.  I love coming in to my room and everything is bright and engaging.  I have purchased most of these bins from here.  Really Good Stuff has the bins, pencil holders and book cases all to match.  

These square bins are also perfect for chapter books or leveled readers.


What I recently just discovered and am super excited to have joined was the Really Good Stuff Teacher Box.  It's a subscription box that comes with really useful resources and activities for the kids.  You can choose the grade level you want.  It's offered for K-6.  The activities and products can be used in a variety of ways.  You can use them to introduce the theme for the month, or separately.  It's up to you.  It includes tools, instructions and materials for up to 36 students.  
Here are some sample pictures of the box. 

By participating in this monthly box, you will also be joined in the Loyalty Program which gives you discounts on future purchases.  You can't go wrong with savings.  

Here is a clip of the box in action.
