I love teacher appreciation week because I get to spread some appreciation to my followers. I know that you all work so hard – often without much appreciation – so it’s fun to give away some things that will save you time and help you get some time for yourself.
All weekend, I’ll be giving away some assignments that can help you teach different aspects of writing. On Monday evening, I’ll give away a grand prize to one person who enters the giveaway: my Writing Worksop Bundle, a $20 gift card to TpT, and a $25 shopping spree in my store. You will have to head on over to my Instagram and watch for my giveaway posts. Winners of the mini-bundles will be included in the grand prize draw too!
On Saturday, I’ll be giving away four products. This mini-bundle will include my best-selling Revision Stations. This is definitely one of my favourite activities because it helps the kids focus on the writing process – and it produces much better essays on their part too! Because of that it’s become a staple in my classroom.
This giveaway bundle will include my Word Choice Lessons, a pile of mini-lessons that you can use to help your students improve their diction and to experiment with imagery and figurative language.
Saturday’s winner will also receive my Writing a Personal Narrative Lesson. This is an assignment that has quickly become a favourite for me because the kids get so engaged, resulting is very pleasurable reading/grading for me (you can read about how I use this in my classroom below). I’m adding my Narrative Writing Task Cards as a bonus here too, as they are perfect for prompting kids who have trouble getting started.
The Sunday bundle will focus on informational text. It will include Expository Writing: Lessons & Activities, a great bundle of lessons designed to engage your students.
This bundle will also include my new Exploring Issues and Informational Text lessons.
I’ll round out this bundle with another favourite of mine: Teaching the Process of Literary Analysis.These lessons have been a game changer in my classroom, as my students now have a much better understanding of how to analyze lit.
Here are some blog posts that will show you how I use these products with my own students:
