Saddling Up + May Common Core Writing

Holy Jalapenos people, it's May!!! I'm saddling up for our final Rodeo this month!!

Who's with me?!?

I'm currently trying to catch up on life over I was in Phoenix almost all week at a Common Core Conference with a group from my school! I was at school for a half day on Monday before we left for the airport, gone Tues-Thurs, and back for an assessment day on Friday. So the week went by in the blink of an eye...and suddenly, BAM! It's May!! And I feel a little discombobulated (that's a word right!?) over here. I wasn't around to take pictures of anything in the classroom this week, so I'm just jumping in today with what I've got!

When I got home I got the Common Core Writing Galore- May pack up and posted!

I'm planning to use these to keep my crew writing til the end this month! One print, cut, and laminate, and the writing center stays seriously kickin', all month long!! There are six prompts for each type of CCS Writing - Narrative, Opinion, and Informative/Explanatory. Plus,six Creative ones in the mix for more practice and fun. 
{Grab this Narrative freebie for your writing center this month here or in the Product Preview on TPT}

I also missed #teachertalktuesday, but here are two quick Instagrams from the week.

I'm a little obsessed with these letters. While in Phoenix, I had some classroom wall display inspiration! I'll come back and share what I come up with once I've got it put it all together. 

Off to re-comboulate (also a word) 

Hope you're soakin up every last relaxing minute of the weekend friends!!
