I have a few linkys I'm joining today. The first linky is Let's Talk About Books over at Mrs. Jump's Class. Teachers are sharing a lot of great book suggestions over there, so I would definitely check it out! Your Amazon wishlist will never be the same!
One of my personal faves is the book Ish. Cute name, huh? It's about a boy who gets frustrated that he can't draw and write perfectly. With the help of his sister, he learns that his work doesn't have to be perfect in order to be something that he's proud of.
I always use this book toward the beginning of the year in writer's workshop to let my students know their work doesn't have to be perfect, either. It's OK to be ISH!
The second linky I'm joining today is Two for Tuesday over at The Teaching Tribune.
I'm putting 2 of my TPT products on sale for 50% for today only! (Well...and maybe for a little while tomorrow since I'm posting this so late...and just because I like you!). My first product is my Word Family Activity Bundle that has almost 300 pages filled with picture cards and station activities for short vowel word families. It's now only $2.50!
My other activity is my Super Fun Color Word Stations pack. This is great for practicing color words and something I usually use after reading Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes. This pack is now only $.75!
I hope you go check out all of the other TPTers who have offered 50% for today only. My next stop is to go fill up my TPT shopping cart and put a dent in my pretty little credit card! =)
