End of Year and Beginning of Year Craftivity! Plus a Freebie :)

I've been wanting to make a pencil craft for a while now... after all, it IS a classroom staple!!  I got to work this weekend and came up with one!  This pencil can be used *now* for the end of the year, and *again* in September for the beginning of the year!!  Who doesn't love two-in-one?!
the write stuff {an end AND beginning of the year craftivity}
can be found in my TpT shop.

Here is what you'll find in this 30 page packet:
*pencil pics and patterns
*an end-of-year writing prompt, available for grades K-3
PLUS a blank grade prompt, just in case
*a beginning-of-year writing prompt
*a beginning-of-year checklist writing prompt
All prompts come with half page and full page options,
as well as primary and secondary lines!!  I want to make everyone happy :)
Also, if you download the preview of this item on TpT, you'll find a freebie:
It's a little pencil flag!!  I didn't have any back to school pencils on hand, so I had to put my preview picture on a Valentine's Day pencil... but you get the idea!! I just put a dab of hot glue on the back of the tag... simple!
I punched my tag out with a scallop punch, but a 2" circle punch or regular old scissors will work just as well!  Don't forget to download the preview to grab your freebie!

If you love it, which I hope you do, please leave me some love!! I say it all the time, but I truly love to read your feedback... it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!!! :)  In fact... first three people to leave me something sweet *with* an email will win this pack for free! Yay!
