Crazy Day and a Freebie

Wow this week has flown by! I just got booked for tomorrow, making this a full week. Today I was supposed to be first, then it got cancelled. Then I got a 1/2 day in first (same school) then a call it was full day. I show up today and it was morning in first and afternoon in kinder. Fine with me as long as I have a job! Lol.

Kinders are so funny. One kiddo gushed over the flowers I drew. "Those are the mostest beautiful flowers I've ever seen! You're a good drawer!"

And another kiddo told the assistant I had 2 names. She looked at me confused and a kiddo said, "One is Ms. Tlusty and one is Ms. T. " Ahhh kinders! :)

One of my favorite first grade classes I sub for has this awesome paper for the kiddos to use for writing and I decided to make my own. The kids have boxes to check for capitals, punctuation, spaces, and words.

Got to love the box for the title, courtesy The 3 AM Teacher.

Did I mention it's FREE?! I know, and not even Friday yet! Hop on over to my TN store to get it! 

I'm also astonished that my free Miss Nelson is Missing pack has had 224 downloads! That's one reason I love having a TN store, I can see how many things are downloaded and it helps me see what people like, compared to Google Docs where I can't see what is downloaded.

Hope you all have a great Friday tomorrow! I'm subbing for music :)

  4. I love this idea! Quick writer's check list for the little ones. I'll be sharing this with our lower grades!


  5. I think this is fabulous! So fabulous that I have taken your idea, and intend to run with it from this week. I have modified your idea so that I can have it anchored in the students writing book. Each day they write they can choose a goal, then when they have finished they can self review then buddy review. thanks for sharing this wonderful idea.

    You can check out how I am using it in my blog


Thanks for leaving me happy notes!
