Merry Christmas everyone! I hope the holiday has found you in good health, surrounded by loved ones, and blessed beyond belief. I have a small (late) Christmas gift for you!

Shooting the Moon Book Packet FREEBIE!!!!

Shooting the Moon Book Packet 

My fifth graders loved our last book study so much, I knew I had to get another great book into their had. The book Shooting the Moon by Frances O’Roark Dowell is a great read about a young girl whose brother goes to war in Vietnam. She is so excited for him, at first, but has a change of heart when he starts having her develop film for him.

This book packet is meant to help students reading the book independently or as a group better comprehend the story, make connections, and think about the order of events more closely.

I created this packet specifically for my students, so somethings are specifically done for my class (question types change throughout the packet, summaries are focused on during reading of book, book report / response to literature is completed digitally and is not included in packet). For these reasons, this packet is currently FREE! Take advantage of it while you can!!!


Looking for Feedback

I am getting so close to the end of my Masters (YAY!) and with the ending of this I am looking for some ways to fill my new “free time” with a digital and creative outlet.

I have created a classroom packet and found it to be enjoyable and a fun way to get my creative juices flowing! The first packet I have made is black and white chevron with yellow  accents. It is BRIGHT and Bold, but I am looking for input on design, future color and pattern choices, and the pieces which make up the packet.

Currently this packet includes:

Print Alphabet
Cafe Headers
Days of the Week
4 different style desk plates
Editable Class Signs (honor rolls, attendance, schedule, roster, etc.)
Months of the Year
Numbers (1-20)
Student Numbers (1-30)
Welcome Sign
Where Are We/Specials Signs
Table Signs (1-10)

Most of the pages look similar to this:


Hop over to my TPT store and check it out! Of course it is FREE! Then leave me some feedback (here or there is fine) so that I can improve not only that packet, but also future classroom packets.
