Sneak Peek & I'm TRIPLING the Giveaway...

Hello New Friends!!
Thanks so much for joining me here in the pinter-blog-iverse! I'm thrilled to have you!! We made it to 62 followers in about 48 hours - that's AMAZING! Thanks for getting the word out there to your people!! You may want to keep sharing, as I will be tripling the giveaway if I get to 93 (every 31 followers = 1 Thirty One Giveaway)...and I could even be arm-twisted to give away more for 31 more and more, etc. Let's see how it goes!

Click the picture below to get to my post containing the Rafflecopter for you to enter...

Sneak Peek:
I'm working on a starter unit for Writers' Workshop that I'm calling "Starting Point: Personal Narrative." It's just that...a starting point...something to kick you off in your narrative genre study...You all know and use wonderful strategies in your own Writers' Workshops and I will love learning from you as we get comments going back and forth! Over the school year I will have more Starting Point WW units for some of the different genres we study in first grade in my district.

A sneak peek at the first few pages is included below...I plan to have it blog/TpT ready within the week. Once I post it here and on TpT, the first 10ish people who download it will get it for FREE. After that it'll have a price listed. So, if you click on it and it says free, that means you're within the 10ish people. If you freebie download it or pay for it, I'd LOVE your feedback via blog comment and/or TpT feedback (you can earn credits on TpT when you purchase items).
