Jumpstart January Blog Hop and $50 Target Gift Card Giveaway

My Lesson Delicatessen friends and I wanted to make sure that you were set and ready to get back in action with your students, so we are giving you the Jumpstart January Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY.  Follow through each of our 10 posts for an AMAZING FREEBIE, personal blog giveaway, and at our final stop, enter to win our $50 Target gift card giveaway and find the links to all of our $1 deals! 

My January always seems like a bit of a blur...the students come back from the break tired, but excited, and I need to get them right back into the swing of things because we have a TON to accomplish!  In order to meet their needs to share, along with my needs as a persistent teacher, we begin with writing.

Jumpstart your January with Me...in 2015!  This self-relection writing resource will engage your students and encourage them to get right back into the swing of things.
 
When my students return from the winter break inspiring them can be very overwhelming tricky.  They have been out of the school routine for just long enough to need redirection and motivation.
In addition the school year is almost half over, and I want to engage my students and get them thinking about what they are hopeful to accomplish in this New Year, but remaining time of the current school year.  I often refer to my students at this point in time as 6 ½ graders!  So I created this Me…in 2015! resource.

Directions...
This writing resource is a tool I print out for each student, hole-punch, and help them navigate through to complete.  It is a tool that we then place in our writing binders as a reflection of what we hope to accomplish. Grab it here and check out the other great uses...

Being Scottish and teaching in Scotland, January is a big deal with Burns Night. (A national celebration of our poet Rabbie Burns). I love teaching and singing the Scots language and the kids really love the chance to recite poetry in their local tongue.

Diane,
I always love to share about books with dogs. So many of my students are pet lovers. I try to incorporate as much dog fun as I can when we tackle Love That Dog for a poetry unit mid-March! Happy New Year!

Awe, thanks, Wendy! I am working on some athlete task cards now to kind of go along with those close reading pages. My boys can' get enough of these athletes. I need to write faster! Happy New Year!

Heather,
How great! I bet the kids love it! Anytime they can connect to real world, grown-up work it seems to be a hit! Happy New Year!

Clair,
Very cool that you are checking in from Scotland! I am going to have to do some research on this poet. I always love finding new authors and poets! Thanks for checking out our blog hop! Best of luck with your fun poetry celebration!

My students just adore interactive notebooks! Who would have thought they could make learning so very fun!

I adore taking the students on field trips! A local university, University of Dayton, does a Math Day from grades 3-8 and it is awesome. The kids get to attend a women's basketball game during the school day and work on a math packet throughout the game that is completely basketball centered. I love getting the kids to a university so they can experience college life for at least a day! It is my favorite trip of the year.
