Pokey Pinning Differentiated For You- Try it Free Today!


Happy new school year! I know, I've been missing in action for awhile, but I'm back to tell you about my newest addition to the Pokey Pin collection...AND to give you a FREE try.  I introduced Pokey Pinning to my kiddos today using my freebie I made this weekend and they loved it! We will be doing it during the word work portion of Daily 5, as well as when they finish their jobs during our Word Study block.
I think everyone knows about Pokey Pinning by now, but, if you don't, go ahead and read my Pokey Pinning 101 directions that give you everything and more you'd ever need to know about the fun and educational fine motor activity.
My new sets come with 3 levels of differentiation:  Word or letter-less, just the letter being focused on, OR labeled pictures.

The Night Before Lucky the Leprechaun's St. Patrick's Day

You only have a couple more days to listen to me go on and on about Lucky visiting our classroom, I promise!  But, after an evening of prepping, I think I am finally ready to show my students a magical visit was had by Lucky the Leprechaun.  Not only did he shrink our hats, he left us magical rocks that turn to gold when put in Lucky's Magical Solution, and he brought us each a four leaf clover!  Also, I know so many who do this tradition at home with their own children, but tonight a very special friend captured their evening with photos for me. Thank you AA!  Happy St. Patrick's Day to all and I hope your day is as magical as Lucky has made ours.






Not only will my students be finding a secret message on what to do with their magic rocks hidden around the room, but they will also be doing a constructed response telling what they think Lucky did to shrink their hats!  You can find the Lucky freebies here:

Grab my bundled kit for all the things to make implementing this project SO easy (includes all the directions and extras you will want!)  and MAGICAL!  Start a tradition in your classroom that your students will never forget or for your child at home to always remember (the kit/book includes both a home and school version)!

I Just Made Your St. Patrick's Week Easier

My favorite week is upon us...if you are a regular reader, you know that I look forward to this week to provide a magical experience for my kiddos who work so, so, so hard.   Our favorite, magical leprechaun Lucky pays us a visit and our whole week is full of surprises and fun from him.  Over the years, I have added freebies to make his visit more personal and more fun...but, today, I compiled them all together in one place so you can easily store, access and prepare them for this week! (Okay, so the secret is I originally did it for myself and then realized with just one quick more step I can share it with you and make your life easier as well!).
