Thank you Kathleen! I love to use thinking maps as much as possible...I often imagine how much less scattered I would be with planning and writing if I thought to automatically prewrite in the same manner we stress to our kids! I hope you consider following my tpt store or blog so that I can keep you posted on future freebies and products! Thanks again for your feedback!
Thank you for your feedback! I have a class full of fantastic writers this year, so they keep me on my toes trying to always plan new, creative, and challenging topics about which to write! I truly hope your kids enjoy my love bugs as much as mine do, and please consider following my blog and tpt store so I can keep you in the loop of my future products and freebies!
Thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback! My students are always excited to choose the Writing rotation in The Daily 5 when they know there are lots of options for them to choose from, so I hope your kiddos get just as much enjoyment from the love bugs as mine do!

Thanks for the freebie! I think my students will enjoy writing about these friendly little bugs!
You're so welcome...thank you for your feedback! My kids always flip when new, cutesy critters visit our classroom so I hope that your students will get a kick out of them as well! I hope you will consider following my tpt store or blog so that I can keep you in the loop of future products, freebies, and ideas!
I'm so glad you enjoy them! My favorite part about tpt is hearing feedback from other teachers who see a use for my products in their own classrooms! Enjoy, and hope you come back to visit my store soon!
I'm so glad you like them...my kiddos always flip out when cutesy critters make an appearance in the classroom! I love offering the writing choices in the menu form so that students take ownership of whichever products they choose to create. I think they like feeling "grown up" enough to make a responsible choice for themselves!
Thanks Tammy for your feedback! I hope you will consider following my blog and tpt store for more products and freebies in the near future! I wish you and your students have a love-filled Valentine's Day!
Thanks for providing your feedback! I stick it in the Writing rotation during The Daily 5. I always find that most of my students are super motivated to try and make time to complete all of the options on the menu. I hope your little ones get as much enjoyment out of it as mine do! Please visit my store and blog in the near future for more products and freebies!
Thank you for your feedback...it's so wonderful to hear that other teachers are getting use out of my products with their own children! I hope your kiddos enjoy it and that you come back to peruse through future items!
