My biggest milestones professionally have been to reach over 200 followers on Bloglovin' and Teachers Pay Teachers as of this date.  I have enjoyed being part of a few giveaways and special events such as this one.  :)  This has inspired me to attend the TpT Conference in Vegas this summer so I can reach even bigger milestones!  

Now I have to figure out what to bring...

This Spring my classes and I will most definitely be celebrating when testing is over!  I plan to tie this to our book project and have a sundae party!  As they complete each stage of the book project, they will earn a "piece" of their sundae.  By the time we finish the project, we will have just about finished testing and the school year!

As I look back on this school year, there are definitely a few things I will do differently next year now that we have some experience with our new state tests under our belts.  I know I will work on the "writing game plan" I came up with right from the start of the year as well as my newest "reading game plan" (see below) :) .

My Spring Freebie is my new "Reading Game Plan".

I have found that my students know their skills but then become overwhelmed by "the test".  So, to help them stress less and perform better, I came up with a "plan of attack".  By this I mean, I made a step-by-step plan for how to approach the test.  This little freebie provides three posters/anchor charts and foldable to match to help them manage the test so they can be calm enough to remember their skills.

So that's the Spring in my step - now for the Giveaway part!
