Make your Masterpiece #tptsellerschallenge Week 3 & Giveaway

New week, new challenge! This week were were asked to create a new product for our TpT Store or finish one we have already started.  This was the perfect challenge to complete some items that have been already started and never were completed until now.  I can now check my "AllAbout Plants" and the "Reading Logs with Mystery Pictures" packets off my to-do list.

Here are just some of the printables found in this packet....keep reading to understand a little more about this "All About Plants" packet.

I absolutely love my "All About Plants" packet.  This is a packet that I started a long time ago.  We study plants in our first grade classrooms and never really had journals or any resources to help guided our teaching. I will be using my plant journal and the seed journals during the spring time.  I created this packet in black and white to make it easier and cheaper to print. However, the vocab words/sorting activity are in color, which is something that I can print in color and laminate to keep for the following years. My goal was to create a packet that would include everything I needed to help guided and teach all about plants.  I know that everything in this packet will be used whether it be the experiments, journals, folder cover, or even the vocab cards. Now go check it out at my TpT Store!

The next item I completed was the "Reading Logs with Mystery Pictures"... just a little twist on your average reading logs!  This packet I actually just completed on Sunday night. I thought it would be ok to add this since we started this challenge on Monday.  I created this packet to help motivate students to set goals (minutes) to help build their stamina when reading at home.  When they finish reading a book or a part of a book, students can fill out the mystery picture.  Students will be recognizing numbers and having to keep track of what they are doing.  Another learning opportunity! :) I made mystery pictures for every month and included an extra one during the month of December.  This activity gives students a much needed break.  Overall, I know that students can spend a whole day at school and there are times when teachers/parents want them to read for homework. I find that this helps students compete their reading for the week/month. Then they are excited to do another fun activity after a long day of learning... and reading!
