100 Followers, Back To School Writing, and a Giveaway!!

I have reached 100+ Followers!! Woooooo Hoooooo!!! Oh sorry!! Can you tell I am a little excited!!!!! Does that mean I am relevant in the Bloggy World?? I have met some real sweet bloggy friends-Life is Grand!!! I know, I know!! I'm done! Look for my giveaway coming up-this weekend! Oh, If you are interested in helping me out with my give away please let me know!!

Any who!! I found the cutest book to use for my first back to school writing activity. And guess what? It has a western theme....Too cute....

I will read aloud this story to my students and talk about how the character used his imagination to tell how he spent his summer vacation.  We will brain storm different things to do on summer vacation real and made up.  I will then have students create their own story real or make believe, using the writing prompt "How I Spent My Summer Vacation." I will have my students write their final copy on this writing page. Click on the picture to grab a copy..

I also created a "Back to School Writing Prompts" Packet that I have uploaded to my Teachers Notebook store. It is on sale for $1.25 this week! 

My Bloggy Friend Corinna over at Teaching Fabulous Firsties is having a 100 Follower Giveaway!!! With the help of some of her bloggy friends she is giving away some great products. So hop on over to her blog and join the fun!! 
Have a Terrific Tuesday!
