Where I've Been ...and...The Day the Crayons Quit

Talk about a whirlwind of a year!  Last summer I applied at another school to be closer to home and I feel like I haven't a taken a breath since I got the job!  With setting up a new classroom and getting established in a new school, I have had ZERO time to make for my blog and TpT store.  Here's a few snapshots of my new classroom:

I haven't made many of my own resources this year.  But, luckily, there have be plenty of wonderful goodies on Teachers Pay Teachers to purchase when needing something for my lessons!  I'd be lost without other teachers' creations!

Last year, I discovered the book The Day the Crayons Quit.  Boy, is this a good one!  If you aren't familiar with it, the story is about a box of crayons who become quite upset with their owner, Duncan, for various reasons.  So, they write him letters expressing their complaints.  This book is great to use for friendly letter writing and for teaching perspective.  I decided that I'd have my students write their own letters to Duncan from the perspective of a crayon.  I plan to compile their work into a class book once we're finished!  I looked around online and didn't see any resources for this, so I actually made time to create something (my first product ALL YEAR)!     

I put together a little packet with various types of writing paper and an editable book cover to make a class book.  Check it out at my TpT Store!  :)

I have lots of resource ideas bouncing around in my head!  Summer break is almost here, so I plan to be making more posts in the near future {fingers crossed}.  Thanks for following!  :)
