A Change of Pace & Some Easter Writing

It's been 7 weeks since our new little peanut entered the world. Mama's are constantly telling me "time flies.... enjoy every moment". Now I am really understanding the true meaning of these words. My wee-little munchkin has already changed soooo much from the day we brought her home and indeed, time is quickly passing by.
Our baby girl arrived healthy, happy & punctual on February 4th (her due date).  

We are IN LOVE.

Life has been shifted in a different, yet wonderful way. The first few weeks was a fog, but now we are slowly getting into routines and a change of pace. If only the weather would cooperate with us, we'd be in business.

I love being a mommy, and I am blessed to be living in Canada, allowing me to stay home with my baby for an entire year. I am excited to watch my baby girl change and grow. Nevertheless, I still yearn to keep busy (outside of baby world), especially when my babe is napping. So...... I have been chipping away at a few things I've been doing in the classroom, but haven't had time to put together in a neat bundle.

With Easter coming next weekend, I decided to put together my Easter Perspective Writing pack that I did with my upper grade kiddos the last few years. It has always turned out great! A great way to teach and review The Easter Story with your students :)


This 33 page mini-package contains a great writing activity that allows students to revisit the Easter Story from the Bible (from Jesus' arrest to resurrection) and write through the eyes of a person or thing.

 This pack contains:
- Clear step by step instructions
- Sample pieces
- Bible Passages that are easy to follow and read (broken into manageable passages)
- Choice cut-out cards (person/thing)
- Writing Template Pages
- Writing Assessment Rubric
- Sample on how to display at school

This package is great for grades 4-8 or as a shared write for younger grades :)

Check it out HERE.

Have a great weekend!!
