Found these gems organizing the hundreds of pictures I took this year...
one of Kayleigh's many lists
 Tyler's smile
 my little Arthur Fonzarellies
 kindergarten readers make me smile
always at the art center
 so excited that she could read the hearts
 one of the best hugs ever

friday freebie - authors

This Facebook Freebie goes along with last week's freebie. Last week's freebie was character pictures. This week's freebie is author pictures. I use these the same way that I use the character pictures. As we read several books written by an author, I hang up their picture. We use these pictures to make connections to stories throughout the year and to compare author's writing craft. Check out some reader's theaters based on some of these author's stories in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store
See you next Friday!

friday freebie - characters

Become a Facebook Fan to get this Friday Freebie. 
As we read about a character, I hang up their picture. We use these pictures to write about characters in our reading and writing notebooks, play games and make reading connections throughout the year. Check out other Facebook Freebies by clicking on facebook freebies in "find it fast" or search for facebook freebies in the "search this blog" box under "find it fast" on the right side of my blog. Check out some reader's theaters about some of these characters in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store.
Stop by next Friday for another freebie.
