This was a great addition to my classroom routines! My students have been searching for "buzz words" during reading workshop or during a class read aloud. We have a bee bucket of words that stores all of the buzz words we collect. Each morning a student will select a buzz word and the entire class completes a page from this packet as their morning work activity.

Hi there! I love the Buzzword product! Is there a way that you could include a few sheets for Buzzword of the Week? Especially page 39? :)

Hi Liz,

I just updated the unit for you so it include sheets for Buzzword of the Week too. So now there are 2 pages for each design: Buzzword of the Day and Buzzword of the Week. Enjoy!

I just absolutely love your product. I still have a question. How can I add my own words to the blank cards?

Just send me your email address and I will email you some blank cards that can be edited. Or you can handwrite on the blank cards given in this pack.
