I had soooo much fun making the first Spreading the Love, that I had to make a second edition that was all about LOVEBUGS! Right now in my 2nd-grade class, we are learning about insects. One of the main topics is social insects such as bees and ants. My kiddos loved learning about Bees and the Bee Waggle Dance. So their excitement inspired me to make a Spreading the Love Bug Edition.
My favorite has to be the Bumble Bee and the Caterpiller. So stinking cute!
Bumble Bee with the writing prompt: Ways to BEE kind!

I started thinking about making a Valentine’s Day craftiviy bundle during Christmas when my students were putting together their Spreading Christmas Cheer crativities (that is in my store). I was so happy with how they turned out and how proud they were to add them to their memory books. So I just had to make one for Valentine’s Day. I searched PINTEREST for all the ideas. I saw so many cute ideas, but it looked like some of those crafts would cost too much and take too much time. And I wasn’t looking to spend that much time and money on crafts. I looked and decided to make a product that was cute and easy for any teacher to use in their classroom. Of course, I just had to make a unicorn craft and writing prompt.
Then I had to make a heart berry!
And a penguin with a warm heart!
One of my favorite novels, when I was a child, was The BFG. I remember my 3rd-grade teacher reading it to my class and I just fell in love with it! I was able to listen and close my eyes to let my imagination run wild. When I became a teacher, I wanted to read this novel to my class. Every year, I have read this novel to my class and I just love how much they love it when we are finished. They love the giant and the way he talks and it inspires them to want to read more Roald Dahl novels. Which is the point right??
This book can be a little difficult for the primary kiddos. So I was wondering if I would be able to read this story with my 2nd-grade kiddos this year. But after I realized that I had an extremely high reading group, we decided on reading this novel and completing my Novel Unit to help with their comprehension and understanding of the novel. And let me tell you this novel unit is a game changer. It engages them, allows them to be creative, and allows them to really understand the novel.
This novel unit includes:
I am so excited about this new product adventure that I have started. My students love when we do directed drawings and I love it too! My students are so focused and it’s so much fun seeing how different the drawings turn out. I have seen so many fun directed drawings and thought how fun it would be if there was a purpose with the directed drawings like a writing prompt. I started with one but plan on making 2 a month! Here is a sample what the directed drawings will be like. Read More »
