New TPT product, A Giveaway, and A Sale!

 Happy Sunday! This has been the most unreal winter ever. I cannot remember the last February where it was 60 degrees outside on a consistent basis!

This weekend, I finish a new literacy mini-unit that I am really excited about. The Down on the Farm literacy mini-unit includes an original story by me, which is great to use for guided reading or individual assessment (a running record is included). It also includes a shared/interactive reading activity that you could use whole group or as a literacy center. Lastly, it includes an original song written by me, along with puppet cards to go with the story.

Here are a few pictures of what is included:
This is the title page of my original book. I have included leveling for DRA, Reading Recovery, and Fountas and Pinnell Guided Reading .

This is an example of the pages in the story. Most of the story is very repetitive, to build reading confidence and to practice using high frequency words.

These are the cards to use with the whole group shared/interactive reading activity. Students will order these cards in the pocket chart, and then complete sentences with either words or pictures, depending on your students developmental levels.

These are the word and picture cards used to complete the sentences in the shared/interactive reading.

This is the original song that I have written. It goes to the tune of "Down by the Bay." My kids LOVED this song. Each time you sing the song, you replace the animal line with a different one. They love how silly it is!

These are the puppet cards that students can use while singing the song.

I am going to giveaway the Down on the Farm mini-unit for FREE for the first 3 people who comment on this post (remember to include your e-mail). I don't have a lot of followers, so it should be pretty easy to win! Tell your other blogger friends! I would love to get some more followers!

Lastly, I am having a TPT sale! The Leap Day sale on Feb. 29th will give you 10% off of all TPT products, with the product code L2PY9. I have marked all of my items an additional 20% off! My products will be 20% off from Monday-Wednesday, but to get the BEST deal, keep them in your cart until Wednesday to use the Leap Day code as well!

I know my cart is filling up quickly!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. I will be busy planning next week. Read Across America Week, Dr. Seuss, Leap Year, Lent, ahh! I don't know how I am going to fit it all in!

Good luck to you all!
