Figurative Language and a New Pack

I hope everyone is having a wonderful first couple weeks back at school! I am exhausted! It sure takes a while to get used to being on your feet all day again! Between grading, planning, and going to bed at a ridiculously early hour, I've also done some creating! I created some Figurative Language Posters in bright chevron to go with my new colorful classroom decor. I've added them to my store for $2.00 if you want to check them out!

I've also realized recently that my most popular items seem to be my rubrics! This is probably since they are the most painful to create for new units! I've bundled all of my rubrics together into a Writer's Workshop Rubric Pack that includes rubrics appropriate for grades 3-5 for the following units:
  • Narrative
  • Personal Essay
  • Persuasive Essay
  • Response to Literature
  • Fiction Writing
Many of these rubrics are two pages long with the writing conventions on the second page so you can choose whether or not to include them. I've also deleted my point values that I gave each item and left blanks so you can decide if you want to use point values or any other grading system you use! I hope these can be useful for you! 

I also wanted to thank the numerous teachers who shared the following video for their September 11th discussions. My students loved it and it led to some great conversations and stories about our heroes. Thanks to all of the heroes on 9/11 and those who sacrifice their lives for us each day!



  1. Hi! I am your newest follower! These packs look great. I agree that rubrics are SUCH a pain to make. I have added a lot of your items to my wishlist.
