Back to School

I’d like to take a second to talk about one of my newest products…

It is called The Common Core Organizer, Assessment Guide and Portfolio for 2nd grade for Math and Literacy and it contains over 200 pages.

Here’s a little blurb about it from TPT:  The Common Core Organizer, Assessment Guide and Portfolio for Second Grade Literacy and Writing is full of tools that you can use to teach and assess second grade Common Core ELA skills to your class throughout the school year. This packet is a great way to help you organize your students’ language arts portfolios, as well as your own. 

This packet has posters, dividers, Common Core checklists and also some assessment tools that you can use.  For some of the assessment tools, you only need to add your own appropriate text and they can answer the questions.  Make sure you read more about this comprehensive packet by clicking here.

Here are a few more sheets you can look at to see if this packet is right for you!

For this same booklet for third grade, click here.
Also, I’ll be working on some different grade levels, so make sure to follow my store so that you will be informed when they are released.  You can follow my TPT store here.
Have a great day!


Product Swap

August 01, 2012 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: worksheets


Hi everyone! I’m part of this great product swap where a bunch of us teachers get together and try out each others teaching materials. This is really going to be fun, so make sure you check out the other blogs as well by going to Mrs.Standford’s blog to check out the linky party!

Today I’m reviewing a French product from:

Tammy Aiello.

She teaches French in Canada to Jr. High level students and has quickly become a great teaching buddy of mine! Make sure to follow her TPT store here, here TN store here and her FB page here. Also, here blog is here, make sure to follow it as well! She blogs about French and French culture, so make sure to check them all out!

The product that I’m reviewing is:

Magic Potion Recipe – French Halloween Writing Lesson or Ma Potion Magique.

This is such a fun and creative activity that my 9 year old son absolutely adored!! First, we practiced some of the vocabulary words that are shown in the packet and then he got to create his own magic brew! He loved that part the most.  Even though it was a little early for a Halloween activity, he was so in the spirit of making a spooky, creepy witch brew!  He was very secretive when he wrote out his potion list as you can tell by this picture!

I wanted to take a picture of his finished recipe, but he said it was secret and that he was going to make the potion tomorrow! Yikes! LOL…I love how he uses his creativity that way and this activity sure did bring it out of him!

I think this product is great for a variety of levels of French students because you can let them work at their own level. I think students in grades 4th-10th would have the funnest time with this activity. It’s such a fun way for them to practice different animal words, body parts, as well as recipe type vocabulary like “a pinch of”. Make sure to grab this product for yourself here! You won’t be disappointed!
