Ahh! I finished my third college course and there are 20 – count ‘em twenty more days of school left! I am so ready for summer that I cannot even express it!
I have a cute new product in my TPT store. It is a summer journal jar. I have made these jars with my kids the last few years as a last day project and they LOVE them! I buy cute little journals and they decorate them, then they make their journal jars. I even had a parent of a reluctant writer call me two days after school let out to tell me her child was in his room writing and would not come out! LOL! I guess he wasn’t a reluctant writer any longer!
Click on the images to check it out in the store!
I buy plastic containers with lids at the dollar store – 3 or 4 for a dollar and put them in little gift bags with the journals. The kids cut up and fold the strips for their jars. They are so fun!
Now for the giveaway! I will give a free copy to two random followers who comment that they shared this giveaway/item on their blog. Just blog about it, comment and leave a link to your post. I will close the giveaway at midnight on Wednesday, May 22nd!
My class is doing this fun little project tomorrow:

On another note, I’m working on two workshops for this summer. I am revamping my workshop from last year: Integrating Technology into Literacy Centers and creating a new workshop:l Digital Writing and Publishing with Elementary Students. I am hoping to try a few more things out with my kiddos, but time is short!
In the process I have found a few great sites that my kids love!
My students are super into comics this year. I mean sneaking them out of their desks while I am teaching obsessed! I found this great site a Scholastic and they are in love:
All of a sudden, I am the best teacher ever – according to a class of nine year olds! I was super impressed with their creativity. I need to take my ink printer to school tomorrow so they can print their creations without trekking down the hall to pick their copies up.
I would say this site is best for third grade and up.
This is a great site to spark imagination and get even the most reluctant writers going.
Do you have any digital/techy writing links or ideas? I would love to hear them!
