Here's a close-up of one of the pages:

PHEW! Revised Kevin Henkes Writing Unit... Sale and Giveaway!

Well, I feel like I've slaved over this for FOREVER, but it is finally done!

I have majorly revamped this unit! I made each lesson a full page, with mini-lesson format (connect, teach, active engagement, link, share):

This will give new and experienced teachers alike a little guidance in how to teach using the workshop format, and how to teach this specific unit.

There's a unit overview to help you organize your planning. I typically teach one lesson a day, but you can always extend lessons as needed to meet your kiddos' needs.

I've included a mentor text list and sample anchor chart:

You'll get a student sample:

And rubrics (two versions, one with and one without CCSS, plus a celebration rubric):

And finally, you get some final draft paper for your kiddos' final pieces!

I've taught this self-created unit for several years now and it's one of my favorites!

In honor of finishing this unit, I'm putting my whole store on sale for 20% off for today and tomorrow only! Click the picture of the cover above to go to that item, or click HERE to go to my store!

And if you're still reading, and you're the first two to comment with your email address, I'll send you the unit FREE!

Have a great Monday!

FLASH FREEBIE!!! They're Here...Editable Behavior Clip Chart Calendars for 2013-2014!

One of the questions I get a LOT is if I can make editable versions of my behavior clip charts I had posted HERE and HERE. Well, I think I finally figured out how to do it, and VOILA! They are here!

I modified the calendars so there's lots of flexibility with how you use colors on your charts and what those colors stand for. You can:

1) Use seven colors (pink, purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red) in that order, with your own description of each level (for example, I use "Role Model" to describe the pink level, which is the highest on my chart).

2) Use seven levels, with your own description of each level, on a black-and-white chart to save on ink costs (students simply color in the squares at the beginning of the month).

3) Add your own clip chart levels and color codes by inserting a table on top of the PowerPoint background. This allows you to use any colors, in any order, with any description of each level.

Additionally, I have left the "Behavior Codes" section blank for your own behavior descriptors, and I have left the parent note section at the bottom empty for you to add you own notes to parents (for example, if you request that parents sign the calendars nightly, you can add this note into the bottom of the calendar).

They're normally just $2.00 in my TpT store, but they are FREE until tomorrow night! Click the product cover above to download.

Have a great night!
