A "Harvest of Freebies" Literacy Blog Hop Has Begun

Welcome to Literacy Loving Gals and A Harvest of Freebies literacy blog hop.  A big thank you to Wendy over at Read with Me ABC and Andrea from Reading Toward the Stars for organizing and providing the graphics for the hop. If you follow the literacy path, at each stop you'll be able to grab a literacy freebie. It's a great way to begin the Fall season at school.



One of the biggest challenges teachers face nowadays is keeping students motivated to learn.  Games can be an engaging, interactive and effective way for students to reflect on their learning.  Participating in games allow students to demonstrate their knowledge of content in an enjoyable manner.  When students are simultaneously playing and learning, you can't go wrong! 

For that reason, the freebie I'm offering to you is my set of Story Spinner games that can be used with fictional and informational texts. The freebie includes 4 game boards- a simple and more detailed version used with fictional and informational texts. The Story Spinners meet a few strands of the CCSS requirements, are easy to assemble and can be placed in a literacy center.  In addition, they allow for some flexibility, grouping-wise.  Students can work independently (responding in a journal), with a partner or in a small group.  Click HERE to download your freebie.  




Just a heads up, this freebie will go back to being a paid item in my TPT store at 5pm on Sunday, October 5, 2014.  Grab it while you can, but please leave a rating, too.  I'd greatly appreciate it! ;) 
If you're interested, follow Literacy Loving Gals on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and/or Bloglovin' to stay updated on our literacy posts. Feel free to link up with us under our "Blog with Us" tab up above, too! :)


Now, continue on the literacy freebie path and head over to Mrs. Beers' Language Arts Class to meet Erin and see what she has to offer.  

Enjoy your weekend!

Colleen :)
