Isn't she just the cutest, little fluff ball everrrrrrrrrr?
These little guys are Blossom's stunt doubles!
I bought them a while ago for some creative writing homework.
(I thought I blogged about it but can't find it....)
Anywho, I made 2 covers to go along with them and made journals
(Super adorable clip art...Melonheadz)
Each day, I would draw 2 numbers and those kiddos got to take home a Blossom (stunt double) and journal to write an adventure with her. This was in addition to their homework. Most of the kids loved it and begged to do it.
Sadly, 3 weeks ago, one Blossom (stunt double) met an untimely death due to being left out on the couch at a student's home and was chewed up. Very sad. She lost her tail, her nose, her little hands......it was ugly people!
Honestly, I couldn't believe it didn't happen sooner....so, after this, we took some time off from the journals. If you remember, I said most, not all, of my kiddos loved it. So I decided we were stopping...maybe for a while, maybe forever.
Didn't take long and the kids were asking about doing it again....when will we start it up again.......will we ever get to do it.......can we get another Blossom..........please can we do it again........
Well, kids begging for homework........can't resist but needed a change.
That's where these little cuties come in. Clearance at Hobby Lobby!! Did I tell you a Hobby Lobby just opened up within walking distance of my house!!!!! WHAT?!!
So I made new journal covers.

As of 2 days ago, the kiddos were super excited to be writing again. They really have fun with it and I know it will help with their narrative writing in class:)
Blossom, classroom pet is happy and still has one stunt double left:)
If you're interested in starting some journals of your own, both covers are free in my TPT store:)
Another freebie that is there and great for this time of year - my Fall Story Starters.
8 different fall/Halloween themed story starters to spark fun creativity.
I also made some Pumpkin Patch Pairs.... multiplication matching flashcards. I'm adding them to my Math workshop tubs:)
I am giving away 5 Pumpkin Patch Pair sets to the first 5 comments that also leave their email:)
Now folks, I'm off to prepare my team for kickoff!!! The Vikings play the Bucs.....My team is the Vikings. I know, I know.......I live in Florida!!! I took the Vikings with my marriage vows.....through thick and thin.....and people that team has been there!!!! Things are looking up for them this year:) I say prepare my team because I talk to them all like they can hear me!!! It is quite a ride to watch a football game with me. I get a little cray cray (as dear Farley would say).
Go Vikings! Night:)
