New packs and giveaways!!


Yep... that's been my weather here the last few days... we haven't really gotten TOO much rain, which is kind of annoying, because we can't do what we have planned because there's like a 90% chance of rain...but it doesn't really rain. Sooo... since I've been couped up in the house for the last few days, I've been able to cross off a few things on my to-do lists....

My most recent is I've FINALLY updated my Skittles/Bloom's Taxonomy pack... I've had the "old" version for so long, and I've FINALLY updated it to where it has the new words and verbs!



(I can't use the word Skittles in the title for copyright reasons...boo)

I print these posters out, put magnets on them, and hang them on my board next to my reading chair...with a jar of Skittles and book, and we're ready to read!


I also do written responses every so often (like once a week, or after a short chapter book). I really like seeing how EACH student is able to think using their HIGHER ORDER skills. It can be tough in the beginning of the year but it's worth it, in the end!


It's on SALE until Friday night!
Blog on the Shop (enter SKITTLES when you checkout!)

Also, I finally finished my Kindergarten Common Core bundle!! I had a friend "bugging" me for them...and since she's done SO much for me in the last year, it was motivation for me to finish them! :)





Check them out!


ALSO, don't forget to enter the giveaway where EVERYONE wins!! Click the pic to head to that post!


AND...one more thing! Make sure you are following my blog on instagram! I'm going to be doing a weekly giveaway over the summer (I hope!). So find me at @theteacherscauldron and watch for the giveaways!


OK, that is all... I must go put B to bed and do my insanity workout!

I love that you have included prompt sheets. I have been trying to use higher order questions in guided reading, but verbally, and find that not all my children are able to participate. This is great. Will definitely be purchasing!

AHHH I LOVE the skittles pack!! I just got back from Target with Skittles! Our school is currently struggling to show adequate growth with our highest performing kiddos - this will a PERFECT way to integrate higher order thinking to stretch their little brains! :) THANK YOU!
