I'm BAAACK!! And let's talk SQUIGGLES!!

Hiya Peeps! Kerri here...
I'm back in good ole Cali and I can't believe I go back to work tomorrow! BOO!! But also, YAY! because I missed my chitlins! 
Our trip was SOOO AMAZING...here are just a couple more pictures from Oregon!
Snowing on us at the Timberline Lodge!! My girls LOVED it!

These flower petals were an instant draw to my Katie Bug!

Mt. Hood is SOOO GORGEOUS!

Yes, those are 3 REAL LIVE deer that crossed the road in front of us!!


We also almost got lost in the woods snow shoeing but that's a story for another time!! :)


I also uploaded a new writing pack to TPT...check it out!

Squiggle example from my Writing pack!



This writing pack pays homage to my mom, who is my teaching inspiration, and was a teacher for 35 years. She used to do squiggle stories with her students, back in the ‘olden days!’ and when I started teaching, she introduced me to the good old “squiggle story!” 
Your students will go bananas for these squiggles and the pictures that they turn them into will BLOW YOUR MIND! I use these weekly in my Lit. Centers and my students just lOVe to write about their squiggles! They also LOVE when I share them with the class (Instant motivator!) and these will DEFINITELY keep them motivated to continue writing through the end of the year!

Included in this pack:
-20 squiggles for writing 
-extra lined writing paper
-a cute cover so you can make their stories into a book!

I will be back on Thursday for the first of 2 big GIVEAWAYS from Learning Resources...Ooh la la!! How exciting! Hope your Tuesday is GREAT!

I'd forgotten about "squiggle stories." I remember doing those in school!
