Spring Break and a Little Armadillo

Hi! It's Lynda from Curls and a Smile!
I am so excited because in just a couple of days, I will official be on Spring Break!
One whole week to relax, spend time with my family and create new resources and fonts for all of you! One of my newest resources (and one that I just love to do with my kiddos) is to have my students write all about their fabulous vacation.
I just love to read about my students adventures away from school! I give my students there brainstorming page before they leave for Spring Break. This way they can jot down a few things that they did each day. This is really helpful on that Monday after Spring Break when they are all in need of a NAP (including me) and sometimes swear they did absolutely nothing for seven days! It's a great way to refresh our memories and get the writing process off to a fabulous start!

The kiddos then use the pages included to write their rough draft. Included on that page is a checklist that the students can use to monitor their writing as they go and as they work with a partner to edit and revise their writing. Once the students have revised and edited their stories, there are also pages included to create their final draft that can be displayed for others to read.

I would love for you to check it out in my TpT store!

Curls and a Smile was also part of Booking Across America and I was able to write about my state of Texas! This time of year is a lot of fun in Texas because it is RODEO time....yeehaw! One of my favorite literature activities is the pairing of 2 super books- It's an Aramdillo and Armadillo Rodeo. I included freebies to go along with lesson!

Hope you have a wonderful and super fun Spring Break!
