Upcoming TpT Cyber Monday + Bonus Tuesday Sale!

Did you brave the Black Friday sales early this morning? Some stores started sales yesterday- craziness! Anyway, if you're like me and like sleeping in too much, then today is a day to come out of the turkey & mashed potatoes coma and start planning for Monday. Ah yes, Cyber Monday is when I really go nuts!

Great news! TpT is throwing a HUGE Cyber Monday (+Bonus Tuesday) Sale!!

This sale will include all of my TpT items at 20% off PLUS you can use the TpT Discount Code: CMT 12 for an additional 10% off! That's 28% off!! Woo hoo!

I hope this helps explain my recent uploading spree- I wanted to get my new units into your hands as soon as I could- I will be uploading how I used them in my class over the next few weeks with pictures of my cuties and how I incorporate the different pieces and parts into my day, but I thought you might like to scoop them up early. If you're like me, I can't say no to a sale ;)

Here's a preview of some of my old reliables as well as my new additions to my store to give you some ideas. Click on each picture to be taken to the item's page and start stocking up your carts for the big day!

Old Reliables:

New Additions:

Hamburger Paragraph Planning- for planning a complete paragraph with introduction, 3 strong supports, and a conclusion:

Extra! Extra! Star Retells- for planning and writing a complete retell using the 5 W's (who, what, when, where & why):

Descriptive Sensory Web Planning Packet- for adding description to any piece or planning a piece that is "painted with words"

May the "Fours" Be With You- a Star Wars-themed packet that will help students plan a complete story with characters, a setting, problem, and solution. Also works wonderfully for writing a complete summary of a chapter or story:

Planning Your Writing Units Bundle- this includes the four planning and writing units in my store at a discounted bundle price: Extra! Extra! Star Planning, Hamburger Paragraph Planning, Descriptive Sensory Webs, and May the "Fours" Be With You:

"Over the Rainbow" Character Study- loads of character posters and two worksheets to help identify the characters, their traits, motivations and feelings (Oz-themed! Yippee!)

Nonfiction Text Features Packet- posters, scavenger hunt, labeling activity & assessment:

How To Make a Snowflake- a holiday/winter-themed activity that will help your students practice functional writing and transition/linking words. Kids will cut their own snowflakes from paper, describing their steps along the way, and can also work with a partner to test their directions. Loads of fun!

All of my new units are aligned to the Common Core State Standards and I have identified the specific standards in the instruction sheets to make your lesson planning easier.

Have fun loading up your carts and be sure to check out your other favorite sellers as well- we all love good sales, so it's a safe bet you can score 28% off tons of products all over TpT in the next two days!
