I am always looking for new ways to improve writing time in my first grade class.  As we were working on our latest writing assignment, I realized that I didn't have any anchor charts for the writing process!  I knew I wanted to create something that could keep my kiddos on track, as well as teach them about the steps.  And so, Writing Process {Posters & Graphic Organizers} was born!

The posters come in two different colors for decorating ease: a bright blue chevron, and a black chevron with a pop of color.  Each poster has a big title {prewrite, draft, revise, edit, peer edit, & publish} with a tiny "definition" beneath it {think, write, improve, correct, conference, & share, respectively}.  The posters also include things that students might want to do as they reach each step.  Here's a closer look at one in each color:

This set also includes 10 graphic organizers for ANY writing prompt, as well as an editing checklist and a peer editing checklist!

I can't wait to get all of this printed and in my classroom!! I just tried to print a set of posters and realized I'm out of blue & pink ink :/  So that'll have to wait until tomorrow, womp.  Hopefully your printers are ink ready! ;)

If you're interested in adding Writing Process {Posters & Graphic Organizer} to your writing resources, you can find it in my TpT shop for 20% off until 12am EST!  I hope you love it!!

Last year I shared a picture on my Instagram of some cute chicks that we made in class:

Aren't they just adorable?!  As we were making them again this year, I realized they would be the perfect addition to my Sprint Prints! April pack!

As you know, these themed printables are great to grab in a pinch!  Fast finishers, morning work, time-fillers... however you use them, your kiddos are sure to love these activities!  Included are 15 fun printables to keep your students engaged during the month of April.

Skills covered include: addition & subtraction to 20, even/odd, ordering numbers, compound words, R-blends, punctuation, and more!

If you're interested in adding Sprint Prints! April to your monthly resources, you can find it in my TpT shop!

You can also find Sprint Prints! April in the Sprint Prints! Growing Bundle for a discount!  It currently includes November through April, and will eventually include printables and craftivities for ALL 12 months :)  If you already own the Growing Bundle, just head to your "My Purchases" tab on TpT and download the revised copy for free!

Happy April... 6th!  Today I am on day two of a three day Spring Break, and I am enjoying every.single.second with my gorgeous Summer girl!  She is 9 months and crawling, standing, and saying mama/dada on repeat.  I love it!!
Those little teeth!!!!

If you can tear your eyes away from my cutie {it's hard, I know!!} then you'll notice that Cupcake has a new look... and I'm so happy to share it with you!  Megan from A Bird in Hand Designs did an amazing job. She hit the nail on the head from the start, and throughout the process she was so patient with me and made all of my tiny changes without complaint.  If you're in the market for a new design, I highly recommend ABIH!
