Hello Friends!

I hope that you've recovered from your holiday weekend and are looking forward to more July fun as your summer continues to unfold!  

Today I am linking up with The Teaching Tribune to bring you some Two For Tuesday deals on two of my store products.  Both are 50% off for today, and feature fun doggie clip art from Sarah at EduClips and Scott at Messare Clips & Designs.

I created both products to go along with the huge Henry & Mudge unit that I use at the beginning of the year.  They are designed to help my young writers practice using time-order words to organize their stories.   They absolutely love writing about my pets, as well as their own!

You can be sure that my senior rescue hounds, Brutus and Rose, are woofing their approval as I type this post, and are proud to be featured in both resources!  Grab these for $1.00 each through midnight tonight!

There are MANY other TpT sellers who are hosting special deals today, so be sure to click through the link up at The Teaching Tribune! 

Also, it's another HAPPINESS IS.....giveaway day on my Facebook page, so
be sure to head there to leave your e-mail address and answer this question....

What is your favorite rainy day activity?

Know that Brutus and Rose like to spend their wet afternoons napping and dreaming of treats!  
I'll check back around 9 p.m. this evening (Tuesday, July 8th) Ohio time to choose a winner of a custom-made Mini Me 
from Jen at Teaching in the Tongass!  
She designed mine and I just love it!


 As always, thanks for stopping!  I'm not one of the lucky teacher-authors who is attending the TpT Conference in Vegas this week, so I will be "keeping the homefires burning" for the next few days with more goodies for you and hopefully some new products!  Until then, continue to share your story, hold a song in your heart, and teach your children well!


  1. These look like great reading/writing activities! Love Rose and Brutus! They look so sweet. Dogs make life worth living!

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Sebrina! Brutus and Rose are most certainly a pair of characters! They are very good company!

  2. Love your mini me!
