First up today, is my Dear Mr. Henshaw Reading Graphic Organizer and Writing Response packet. This packet is only $1.00 on Tuesday, June 10 until I remember to return it to its original price.
Leigh, the main character, struggles with the emotions of having divorced parents and being new at his school. He feels lonely, and it does not help that his lunches keep getting stolen. During the story you learn about the friends he makes that help him work his way through the issues of family and adolescence.
I always read this at the beginning of the year because the writing response packet makes for a wonderful writing to display at open house and provides some busy (but meaningful) work while beginning of the year assessments are completed.
The writing packets look great when they are bound. I learn a lot about my students, their family, and their lives with this quick assessment. I always give it back to them at the end of the school year and they love to see how much they have grown and changed.
I am planning to add some more graphic organizers to the packet throughout the summer, so $1.00 is really a bargain!
And for our second item, Decimal Multiplication Matching Task Cards for $1.50. Decimals models are always a challenge for my students, so I designed these as models and to help them practice.
There are 7 sets of matching cards in this packet, so it is one you can use throughout the year to practice, reteach, and review.
Don't forget to hop over to The Teaching Tribune to see what other Two for Tuesday deals are available. There were a bunch of great items last week, I am sure this week will be just as great!
Thanks again for all of your support, I am on a blogging roll and loving all of the comments and connections with other teachers! Don't forget to swing by tomorrow, I have a new freebie for you that you can use as a math and word work/spelling activity.
Happy Summer Bloggin'!
