Notice Anything Different About Me? {And a file update too!}

Do you notice anything different about me?  Go ahead.  Look around the blog.

I'm freaking out!

Oh.  My.  Word. and Shut the front door!

I am in L-O-V-E with my new blog design!  Thank you so so so much to Kassie from Designs by Kassie for SO capturing me in my new design... from the graphics to the fonts to the colors... I LOVE IT!

Kassie was SO easy to work with.  SO friendly and FAST!  I am so so so happy with my new blog!

So, Kassie wasn't the only one doing some updating this weekend... I also added "cover pages" to all of my "Snapshots" files!  Many of your requested cover pages be added so you could make the "Snapshots" into student workbooks.  Log in to TpT and re-download to access the cover pages.  They come in color and black & white for each "Snapshots" set so, if you're lucky enough to be able to print in color at school, you can!  Or if you want your kiddos to do some coloring or print on colored paper, download in B&W!

I use the grammar and comprehension "Snapshots" weekly... they're only half a page long, so the kids think it's less work and I run them back-to-back so the kiddos take 2 CCSS aligned assessments each week and I use only half a sheet of paper per kiddo!  Not only that but they take me seconds to assess... I teach ELA to two classes, so when each kid does 2 assessments, that's 100 assessments I grade every Friday.  No joke... it takes me about 10 minutes per class.  They're SO quick and easy and show me exactly how kids are doing on specific standards and skills!
