I am so excited to share some great news! First, Teachers Pay Teachers is having a huge sale on May 7 and May 8, 2013 in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week. Many sellers are throwing sales, myself included. My entire store will be 20% off, and if you use the TPT promotion code, TAD13, you will get an additional 10% off of that (28% off total!) This is a fantastic time to get some great things for the end of the year, or to stock up for next year!
I have also been working furiously to finish my new poetry unit, because I wanted to be able to offer it to everyone on sale! I have finally uploaded a Reading Workshop unit all around the study of poetry. It includes ten lessons with all stages of workshop outlined (minilesson, active engagement, independent work, group/partner work, share). You also receive three extension lessons, a homework project, labels for student poetry collections, a certificate to be used at the end of the unit, and a cover for a student poetry anthology. Here are a few peeks at what you get:
Because it is based on the reading workshop format, you will need a supply of poetry books for children to explore. Mentor texts are suggested, but you could also obtain the books you need by making a trip to the library. Everything else you need is included in this unit. You, my dear readers, know that I do not often pitch a unit or product like this. I am just hoping to get it into your hands at such a great sale price!
I am very proud of this unit, and I hope it will help others love teaching poetry as much as I do. Please consider checking it out, and the rest of my store, over the next couple of days, and take advantage of some great deals! Happy shopping!
