While adventures like blogging or running tend to come and go, thankfully my passion for teaching hasn't faded out. I'll be headed into my 20th year of teaching, and still love it! My first Made-It is my new planner/gradebook for this year. I started using these 2 years ago, and have made it better each year. The biggest change this year is for my grading pages. We are a standards-based school, which is tricky for ELA. Thankfully, this will be the first year in A LONG TIME that we are not making any changes to our online gradebook. But I adjusted my pages to allow for me to see progress by having fewer standards per page, and having each page span all 4 quarters. I plan to cut off the edges, so I only need to write in the names once. This took a lot of manipulation in Pages, but I'm happy with how it came out.

Like most everyone else, my store will be on sale for the TpT back to school event. I did manage to add a product last month. Last spring I sat down to create a unit of my own for teaching common Greek allusions. The students and I both loved it. There is a complete unit of 6 myths and questions to accompany each, aligned to 4th grade ELA standards. There also is a free myth with questions for anyone to download to try out.
