New Literacy Unit and New Blog!!

I am oh so excited to share with you all in bloggy land that I have completed my first unit for my stores!!!  I have a confession to I would sit and look at all the wonderful things everyone else made, I would think.....yeah.....I probably can't do that....not that big........and then I was jealous of all the K-2 teachers who could make all the cute stuff and there's soooooo much to choose from.  I have still been struggling with finding stuff to use with my 4thsies (yep, not a word), so decided to give making a unit a try:)

Well, I did it and I am so excited about it.  I used the adorable graphics from Nikki at Melonheadz.  If you don't know who she is, you must go check out her work!  She is an absolute doll to work with:))

It is Charlotte's Web themed but was made to be used with any stories or chapter books:)
Here is what all is included:
Word sort with Wilbur - er/ur/ir
21 words

Antonyms -
16 pairs of antonyms

Sentence practice:

Main Idea and Details:

Figurative Language - Idioms

Vocabulary Practice and Word Webs -
8 words with definitions or use your own

So there you have it!  There are black and white copies of everything included in the unit:))
It's at my TPT (HERE) and
TN (HERE) stores:) 

I also wanted to take a sec to introduce a new blog....well, she's new to me and absolutely wonderful and a fellow 4th grade teacher and has the super cutest, yummiest ideas that I am stealing and........well, you get the idea!!

  10. Your new unit looks FANTASTIC!!! Cheers to lots and lots of sales and sharing your wonderful ideas with teachers and students all over!

  11. great job! I know exactly how you feel. I don't do centers so my units are obviously not going to include them! You gotta make stuff you can use too! and her blog is adorable!

  12. I love your unit, but as a computer lab teacher I see so many students even in 4th and 5th grades that do not have a firm grasp on correct capitalization and punctuation that I am a bit of a nut about it. Your font is cute, cute, cute, but - I would love to see teachers ALWAYS setting a good example of how to use capitals and punctuation. Just my pet peeve, but I don't think it would change the appeal of your unit and increase the quality.

  13. So proud of you!!! It came out GREAT!!! I feel the same way!!! I keep getting email notifications when the sellers I follow upload new items. They are just amazing!! They upload things every day!!! I would take me forever to make units and to make them look cute. Not to mention it's much easier when you teach K-3 then big kids.

  14. WOW. And WOW. And, by the way... WOW.

    It would take me FOR.EVER. to do this (and I'd probably erase it at least twice while I was trying to post it for sale!)

    So... sweet Tara, I never officially thanked you for the LOVELY award, so I am doing that now. Formally even:

    Thank you for considering my blog worthy of an award. Although this “Thank you” message is arriving late, it is still sent with heartfelt gratitude!

    Coming from you, it was like getting a GIANT hug. It really meant a lot to me. And, as you know, your timing was perfect.

    Thanks for being my BloggyBuddy...
