Two for Tuesday!

Two for Tuesday is a great idea from The Teaching Tribune where folks offer two of their products for 50% off for one day only (today!) and I am happy to participate in offering two of my best products!

If you read yesterday's post, then you know I began blogging due to my sister's insistence about my writing materials.  This first product is the one she was talking about:

This is my 12 week unit that teaches one how to write an expository essay with step-by-step instructions.  It uses the writing process of pre-writing, drafting, editing, proofreading and published which is "fertilized" with the six traits of organization, word choice, voice, sentence fluency and conventions in meaningful and practical activities designed to make better writers.

In this unit you can expect:
*Professionally written instruction on how to write an expository essay beginning with sentences and paragraphs.

*Explanation and use of the writing process in the lessons/activities

* Explanation and use of the traits of writing in the lessons/activities

*Clear grammar instruction with the parts of speech

*Instruction in overall writing skills

*Clear focus on specific writing products

*12 weeks worth of curriculum with 4 daily lessons per week and a weekly quiz

* 5 PowerPoints that go with specific lessons/topics

*online activities

*A day-by-day, week-by-week Table of Contents chart with objectives.

*Full answer keys, self-evaluation checklists, rubrics, and other teacher evaluation tools.

*A midterm and a final exam

PLUS this a SUPER VALUE!!  Normally $60 - today it is $30!!

If you paid $1 a day (12 weeks times 5 days per week) that would equal $60 then add in the PowerPoints, grammar activities, quizzes, answer keys, checklists and rubrics and you can see why 

My second product I'm offering for 50% off is the most wishlisted item in my store:

This is a reading comprehension questions and answers game that reviews the four story elements of setting, characters, plot and theme.  Questions were written using Bloom's Taxonomy and nearly every level is represented.

There are 9-18 questions per story element and a total of FIFTY-THREE questions in all for this set about The Giver.  The questions are already written on "cards" that are in in both color and black and white depending on your printing preferences.

This game can be played like the TV show Jeopardy or in small groups or in many other ways.

Included in this pdf are directions for making & playing the game as well as assessment suggestions and ideas for using the cards with small groups as well as the whole class.

Normally the game for The Giver is $5 but today it is only $2.50!

Well I think that wraps up this Two for Tuesday!
Thanks for stopping by!
