Guess what?? It's Saturday, and I actually got to sleep in today. Why's that, you say? Isn't it summer, you say?
YES!! It is SUPPOSED to be summer! But my teenage daughter, who is on the cross country team at her high school, has practice Monday-Friday at 5:45 or 6:00 a.m.! GAH!!! And I am the one who takes her every morning at that god awful time. Blecchh...it is the worst. Gotta hand it to her though. I would NEVER in a BRAZILLION years wake up at 5:45 to run ANYWHERE!!
Christmas in July is still going strong and for Saturday and Sunday, my writing mats bundles will all be on sale!! These little babies are absolutely AMAZING tools to help your kidlets become confident writers and SUPER excited to write stories!! Even Kinder babies can use these mats to write stories. It's true!!
Here's a little throw back post to fill you all in on how I use them in my classroom...
The real reason for my post is to remind you all, or maybe fill you in for the very first time, and let you know that I have over 40 writing centers in my TPT store available for purchase, and they are only $2 each! I have like EVERY SINGLE topic you can imagine. Each pack includes 2 types of paper to use, the themed writing mat, and a cute cover if you want to make a mini-book.
Occasionally, I will pull them out and throw them on the floor, and let the kids each pick one to use when writing a story. THEY ARE SOOO STOKED! It was literally like Christmas morning in my room. One of my littles even told me, "I can't believe how much I wrote!" HEE HEE!!
Here are some pictures of their writing in action...
