However, it was for a good reason! I have been pouring my heart and soul into my latest series Language Arts Daily Dose. I am currently working/stressing/praying over/screaming at the 6th grade edition!
I know you are thinking that it can't be THAT stressful. It probably isn't, but I want it to be amazing, so I fuss and fidget over it until I can live with it. So far I have Sets 1 and 2 done Week 1-4 and Weeks 5-8! I LOVE how they are turning out. I am crafting them very carefully so they spiral AND scaffold the student's learning of concepts. I have been able to cover topics like using a web organizer, all the parts of speech, spelling patterns, test taking tips, a cursive sentence each day, and, I love the Friday sheets. They are different in the sense that students have to use their learning to complete an activity (usually writing based). I plan to have the other 7 sets out during the school year, hoping for one each month through March- which would be the 36 weeks worth.
One other thought about these. I have had many questions about other grade levels. That is something that I will have to decide on after the 6th grade level is done. :) Just know that these are perfect for 5th graders who need a good challenge and provide an excellent opportunity to reteach 7th and up that need extra practice or reinforcement in Language Arts concepts.

Hmmm... what else have I been up to? Well, I have started selling my resources on new site. ePals' Tools for Schools. It has been an amazing experience. I was asked to speak with the project director and I am excited about some opportunities that will be coming my way from this amazing new adventure. If you haven't had a chance to check out this brand-new site, do so now! I encourage your to keep checking back because they are getting feedback and updating the look of the site often to match the needs and demands of the teaching world!

I have so many ideas I want to get created for my classroom, I just need about 40 more hours in a week. But, I wouldn't trade being a daddy for ANYTHING! My 6 sweet kiddos are the reason I do this.
I hope you have an amazing Friday evening and wonderful weekend! Don't miss the Freebie Linky tomorrow. There is some pretty exciting news included in THAT post too!
