Celebrating 100 Downloads of my FREE Fiction Common Core Reading Response Prompts

My teaching partner, Heather, and I are totally new to TpT selling. We just got started this month... and I'm so excited!  Not only have I made a bank-breaking profit of $2.10 so far {it's gonna burn a whole in my pocket}, but today one of my FREE products reached 100 downloads!  Woohoo!  This is a product that I am really proud of because I spent HOURS putting it together for my kiddos at school.  It's actually only a small portion of the larger interactive reading and writing handbook/notebook that I haven't had time to put up on TpT yet.

It's a pack of reading response prompts (including a blank response sheet) that is meant to be kept in a student binder or notebook to be used over and over again throughout the school year.  A teacher could assign them for the whole class after teaching a certain skill, through small strategy groups, or even on an individual basis through one-on-one conferencing. The prompts cover the gamut of Common Core standards from grades 3-5.  They are also scaffolded from the most basic at the top of each page to the most complex at the bottom.  And, YES, there is also a NONFICTION companion to this FICTION set.  I decided to offer the fiction set for FREE so that others can take a good look at the resource and try it out.  The Nonfiction set is priced at $3 right now.  {So essentially, you can get both sets for a grand total of $3... not too shabby, right?}

Baby Step #2

I guess the best way to become active in the blogging world is to connect with other bloggers. Today I looked up the blogs of some of my favorite TpT sellers and added links to their blogs on the lower right side of our blog {I'm sure this area probably has a technical bloggy name, but I have no clue at this point!}. I highly recommend the resources provided by these teacher blogger-sellers.  Check them out!

Hello! Are we ready for this???

So... we're going to be totally honest.  We have NO IDEA as to what we're doing... with blogging, that is. We have so much to share, but we're taking baby steps learning HOW to share it.  Please be patient with us... and stay tuned!  There WILL be more to come {after we figure it all out}. 

We're excited to begin this journey, but we're feeling techno-illiterate right now.  So if you have any blogging advice or know any useful tutorials, we'd love to hear from you!  In the mean time, feel free to check out our TpT stores (links on the right-hand side).  They're also new and in the making, but we have several FREEBIES already!

Please stop by again!
Kelli and Heather
