This is a pre-dated post. I'm taking the day off to enjoy some family time, pool time, ice cream, fireworks and BBQ. But, I didn’t want to leave you without a promised daily FLASH FREEBIE so I whipped up this little Patriotic number for you and your students to enjoy.

I purposely made it “Patriotic” and not entirely “4th of Julyish” so you can use it for Labor Day, 9/11, Constitution Day, Veteran’s Day, President’s Day, Memorial Day, or any other time you want to get you red, white, and blue on and show the U.S.A. some lovin’.
This FLASH FREEBIE is one of my complete writing packets. I use these ALL. THE. TIME. both in my 3rd grade classroom and with my first grader at home. I create each and every one to offer built-in differentiation to make your job easier. It’s so important to me that all of my students are able to work on the same project...even if it is at modified levels. Each of my packets includes a brainstorming page to generate ideas, draft pages, publishing pages and full color printable pages to use as bulletin board titles or class book covers. 
I simply print a cover and slide it into a clearview binder with clear sheet protectors inside. I slip my students writing into them and have an instant class book. They are a favorite for students to read and knowing that their work is being “published” motivates my writers to do their best.
I have been using these packets for several years and am thrilled with the progress they make as writers. I try to do one complete piece each week. Using the same format each week really allows them to develop their skills.  
Be sure to check out my other writing packets. They are all sold individually and many are sold as a bundle of 6 or more at a very discounted rate.  Enjoy the 4th friends! 

I’ll see you tomorrow!
