About the Author freebie!

Well, it's official... my first "at home on the couch day" of the school year.  Yesterday I couldn't even make myself change the channel on the TV, so today is definitely an improvement... though I still have a fever!  :(  But you, my bloggy friends, have certainly helped chase the yucks away with your well-wishes... and your blogs that I have been perusing today from my couch!

BUT... I've gotten quite a bit of work done that I needed to on the computer!

One of the items on my list was to create an "About the Author" form to share with my colleagues as I am the "Young Author's" coach at my school this year.  In our county, there is a yearly writing "contest" for students in grades 2-5 and this year I'm the "coach" in my building.

So, I thought I'd share the form with you too.  It's available for free at my Teacher's Notebook shop!  I included a primary, intermediate, and a "fillable" one so kids could even type out their own!  Just click the pic to download.
Enjoy!!!!  I'd love to hear from you if you download it!  :)


  1. So nice of you to SHARE when you not even feeling well. Maybe you will have a snow day tomorrow, too! HE HE HE Where in Michigan are you from? I grew up in Upper Michigan. I miss the amounts of snow we would get up there! Amber Kindergarten Rocks

  2. I was just recently down for about a week with a nasty cold and flu (the first fever I've had since grade school!), so I don't envy your situation at all! However (and please know that I am NOT glad you're sick. ;) ) your stay-at-home day did give me the opportunity to sub for your class. Loved it, loved them...and loved finding your blog up on your computer so that I could contact and comment. Nice space here. Nice space at school. You're on a roll.

  3. Eeek! Get some GOOD REST! Take some Vitamin C and drink PLENTY OF WATER.

    Just posted on Me and My Gang to say THANK YOU for that awesome freebie. How fun!

    Get better soon!

  7. You get more done on a sick day than most of us do on our best day!

    Get well soon...I know your class will be missing you!

  8. Hey chicky - hope you are feeling better by now. A day on the couch is hopefully all it took!

    I'm off to win some more giveaways - me and Mr. Random Number Generator are in cahoots...

  9. I hope you are feeling better soon. Thanks for the author bio page. I am a director for a county-wide group that hosts a "Young Author" event every spring. We take pieces from students chosen around our county and publish them in an anthology along with hosting a morning of workshops and keynote with a "real" author. I think I will use this to create a recognition bulletin board in our own school for the kiddos chosen.

  10. Feel better!Thanks for the author idea - love it! Lisa
