Anchors Away Monday (Plus Flash Freebie)

If it doesn't feel like summer....

Man- I'm so ready! 9 days left with the kiddos. It's been a great year, but I'm ready for the well-deserve break and for all the excitement that comes with a new year!

However, I can't forgot the importance of today. I'm so grateful for those who have served and continue to serve our country, especially those who lost their lives doing so.

Thanks to all the veterans out there and thanks and peace to the families who have lost someone fighting for our freedoms.

Onto the linky...

We have started to publish our fairy tales that we started a while ago. We read a couple original fairy tales to get an understanding of the types of features they had and then read many fractured fairy tales so we could start seeing what we authors change.

This chart isn't anything fancy, but each time we read a new fractured tale, kids noticed something different they changed, so we would add it.

When they began to write their own, they had to tell a partner which aspects they were changing. All the examples we read, plus this chart has made this unit so fun! Not to mention, it is the best writing they have done all year. Love ending on a positive!

Check out other anchor charts at Deb's linky and make sure you link up a chart as well!!

Oh, one last thing....

In honor of the 3 day weekend, summer fast approaching, and whatever else you want to celebrate, my latest project is a Flash Freebie in my store until 8 pm Monday night! Snag it while you can and don't forget to leave some love!

And... go!!
