Pot of Goals is a fun "craftivity" March writing prompt, that reinforces Common Core State Standards: L.K.2a, L.K.2b, RF.K.3d, RF.K.1c, RF.1.1a, L.1.2b
Simply run off the templates on construction paper.
Students complete the "goal" coin sentences and add their reasons why.
Remind students to use appropriate capitalization, end punctuation and spacing, when they write their goals on the coins.
Lay out a selection of large construction paper, in the colors of the rainbow. Only have enough paper so that all of it will be chosen, and you'll have a sampling of every color.
Students cut out their pot and coins, and glue them to the construction paper.
Hang the completed pots, in rainbow color order, on a large wall. Your title can be: A Rainbow Of Wonderful Writing.
For a bit more pizzazz, have students write their names in rainbow colors, add a school photo + gold and silver glitter.

1-2-3 Come Do All Sorts Of Fun Activities With Elmer, Horton and Me!
I am so excited to share this 42-page Horton and Elmer activity packet with you. I've been working on it all week, and it's finally done! Woo Hoo!
I've tried to design things around quite a few Common Core State Standards so you'll be able to review all sorts of things.
Since students have to compare and contrast, explain data etc. I thought it would be fun for students to compare 2 of my favorite elephants: Horton and Elmer.
The packet includes:

Teaching punctuation can be pretty dry and boring for little ones, and assessing it can be time consuming.
I've designed Punctuation Paddles that solve both problems!
They also help review: Common Core State Standards: RF.K3c, L.K.2a, L.K.2b, L.1.2b, RF.1.1a
Punctuation paddles are quick and easy to make and a super-fun way for students to learn about end punctuation. They also make a terrific whole-group assessment tool.
All 3 punctuation marks are on one Popsicle stick (it's a tri-fold).
I jazzed mine up with crayons, glitter glue, rhinestones and wiggle eyes.
I've incorporated Dolch and word wall words in the simple sentences. Print and laminate the monthly cards.
Teachers read a card; students twirl their Popsicle stick so that the correct punctuation faces forward, and hold it up in the air.
Teachers can see at a glance, who does not have the correct answer and jot down notes of who needs help.
Teachers then show their students the card, and choose a child to correct the capitalization errors. They are sometimes not just the first word. Students write in the appropriate end punctuation.
The teacher can also print more cards and pass them out to students. so they can work on them for a Daily 5 activity, or play with a partner.
Packet includes: Directions and patterns for 10 punctuation paddles. (September through June), + 50 sentence cards. (5 for each month.)
