Under Construction :) Tips welcome!

So, I've decided to give my blog a bit of a facelift. The only problem is ... I know NOTHING about blog design or formatting in HTML ... so, for the next week or so, I am going to consider this a construction zone!

Any tips?

Making My Masterpiece #tptsellerchallenge - just a little late :)

Two weeks ago was "Make Your Masterpiece" week for the TpT seller challenge. Well, I'm just a little behind. I was on vacation that week and have been teaching summer school since I've come home. But, I was determined to finish this set! I did, after all, start it last summer.
The other day I blogged about the set, and even offered a free download of the set as a preview. Today I finished editing and revising ... and it's uploaded! I definitely think it IS my masterpiece. It ended up being 250 pages long ... many more than I intended, but well worth it.
The set is for grades 3-5 RL Comprehension and can be used with any text! It has anchor charts, graphic organizers, and interactive notebook pages.

You can check it out on TpT by clicking the image above! 
Here's a preview! 

I'm going to put it on sale in my TpT store for the next couple of days to celebrate it's completion! 
And, a special thanks to those who offered to help edit before I published. I appreciate it!

Making my Masterpiece - with a sneak peak to download!

I've been trying to keep up with the TpT Seller Challenge over the past few weeks, but with teaching summer school and being in my 8th (almost 9th) month of pregnancy .. I'm tired! Last week, the challenge finished a new week called "Make Your Masterpiece". Well, I've been working on mine since last summer, and it's still a work in progress. I have over 250 slides, and now I'm focused on editing and refining the product to make it TpT ready.
So the product is for intermediate teachers (grades 3-5) and focuses on reading literature. I've included anchor charts, graphic organizers, interactive notebook elements, and activities to help teach the standards no matter what text you're using in your classroom.

Now, I just need some feedback! I'd love if you'd download this free sample (materials that hit RL 1) and give me some feedback!

Click on the image above to download the sneak peak. And please, don't forget to leave me some feedback!
