Monday Made It #1 of the Summer

Hello all!  I am excited to link-up to my first Monday Made It of the summer!


I am excited to share some items for my first Monday Made It of Summer 2016!  I have 2 items that I created and added to my TPT store.  If you are interested in either one, click on the picture to purchase it!  I am also going to show a pic of a future Monday Made It for my classroom theme!  Stay tuned to the end of the blog post for a special giveaway!  


I am trying to incorporate more mentor texts into my lessons.  First, I want to highlight The Boy Who Loved Words.  This is a fantastic mentor text for context clues and writing.  The story is about a boy, Selig, who collects words.  However, this does not make him a popular child, so he leaves his home in search of a new place.  Along the way, a poet discovers his words and his perspective changes!  Check out my product that has lots of activities to choose from!




Another mentor text that I read is Baloney (Henry P.).  This is another great book for context clues!  Check out the product by clicking on the picture below.



I don't have anything officially made for my classroom next year, but here is a peek at some of the items that I will be using!  I am doing a Harry Potter theme, and I am very excited!  I can't wait to share all of my creations and classroom reveal with you!




Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to enter the giveaway below!
