February Faves and a #TPTBEMINE Giveaway!

Hey there friends!! I hope you're having a great February so far!! I have some VERY exciting things for you today...make sure you read to the end of this post to enter some awesome giveaways! Did you know that Teachers Pay Teachers is throwing a sitewide sale Feb. 7-8?!?! Up to 28% so many amazing resources, including my WHOLE STORE!!

February is such a fun month- with Valentine's Day, the 100th Day of School, and more! Living in Tanzania means we don't have to deal with all the commercialism that holidays bring, which is nice. But I love introducing my students to these holidays however I can! Here are some resources I use to do so. Click the pictures for more info!
This is my newest creation- right in time for Valentine's Day!! Get your early writers labeling pictures, differentiate with three levels, and you get to choose a koala, giraffe, or penguin! Labeling encourages them to stretch out the sounds of a word and write it how they think it should be. It is NOT about perfection- it's about working towards their best!

This is a craft I do with everyone- young and old. A heart map is just that...a map of your heart! Students get to create their heart maps (like mine above), and then interview each other, and write an expository piece on their partner's heart map! Gets in important writing skills while keeping things personal and fun!

Here's another Label and Color activity for winter! This also makes a good early finisher activity, morning work, or writing center! Doing these throughout the year allows you to see their growth and progress, as well as aligning to your themes!

Make sure you check out this blog post for more about Valentine's Day in the Classroom (and get a freebie or two!)! 

Okay, now for the FUN part!! I've teamed up with some other bloggers to bring you a GIVEAWAY BLOG HOP! We're each giving away a $10 Gift Card to TPT, so you can grab some great deals before the sale ends!! It's going to be a quick one, so make sure you get your entries in TODAY!
