A Teacher Feature with a FREEBIE!

Hi all! There are two words that have every teacher even busier than usual this year: Common Core! Teachers all over the nation are implementing the new standards into their classroom and finding themselves in a transition phase with one looming question: "How can we best integrate these standards into our classroom in creative ways that will keep our students engaged?" Wowzers! That's a mouthful!

Today I will be featuring a fantastic teacher/blogger who has produced a creative way to integrate Common Core writing skills into any classroom or homeschool! Kristin of Taking a Walk on the Teacher Side has created a writing MUST HAVE: 120 writing prompts that are correlated to the Common Core standards and packaged in the cutest method EVAH! Check this out!

Is that not just the cutest?! Each writing prompt is on an adorable round label that can be printed, laminated, and attached to popsicle sticks. They can then be used for writing centers, writer's workshops, test practice, morning work, free time, sub days, or even for those early finishers! Her design includes darling ladybugs and clear headings such as informational, opinion, and narrative.
The writing ideas are definitely interesting and engaging so no student feels they are just completing busywork! There is also an excitement in never knowing which writing prompt they might pick! Best yet, you can get all 120 prompts for just $6.50! It is a fantastic value as each stick can be used be all students and can be kept for future classes.
