Long E Freebie and Visual Plans for the Week

24 February 2013

Our reading story for the week focuses on Long E and is about cats.  I made this fun center activity using adorable cat graphics by blogging buddy, Ashely Hughes.  My font is by my ever so talented friend, Cara Carroll.  
Click the image above to download the file for FREE.  Click below to check out Ashley and Cara's work!  Both are super talented and sweet.  DeeDee Wills blogged about them both this week, too.  
Love the names of these fonts!

Here are my visual plans for the week, just click to download.  I am not celebrating Dr. You Know Who's Birthday until the following week, when the high school students come to my class to read.  Sorry, but due to copyright reasons and the Dr. You Know Who police, teacher-authors are not allowed to sell any Dr. You Know Who specific items.   I decided to be cautious and even my Dr. You Know Who Freebies have been deleted.

*This plan book format is called "Erica."  Click here to check it out in Ms. M's A Teacher's Plan Store.
**My visual plans are inspired by DeeDee Wills' visual plans.

* I forgot to add my 100th Day Activities!  I think I will swap out a few things on Tuesday and add some 100th Day things in!  It has just been one of those years :)

Cat themed books (click the covers) and activities for the week:

I am linking up with DeeDee Wills to share my peek at my week plans!  Click below to check out other bloggers' plans for the week!

There is a Let's Celebrate Reading Giveaway over at DeeDee's blog.  I think I said DeeDee's name like four times or more in this post!  Maybe, I can get referral earnings ;) 
Click below to check it out the contest, I donated my buddy reading logs. 


  1. Thanks for the freebie! I won't be celebrating Dr. You Know Who's birthday until next week either, because we don't have school this week. This gives me another week to come up with some great activities!

  5. So funny...Dr You Know Who.
    Some people just take the joy right out of the room. As I was planning for RAA I felt myself looking over my shoulder any time I wanted to use a red and white striped hat.
    I am trying out your solid shape construction math center this week. I think my kids will really like it. Thanks for sharing, unlike the "Dr. You Know Who Police."


  6. Thanks for the freebie! Ella and Greta look so sweetie! My fur babies are on my lap and behind my neck as we speak!
    Finally in First

  7. Erica, I am thrilled to be linking up with Deedee's linky for the very first time! A little nervous, maybe, but you both have inspired me so much to rethink and reorganize the way I look at my weekly planning! I just added your (ee, ea) Write the Room activity to my visuals too! The kids are doing that on Friday! Thank you for the download!
