End of Year Yearbook / Memory Book *MASSIVE FREEBIE*

It is finally finished!  I was browsing the net a week ago for the perfect end-of-year memory book, but I could not find just what I needed.  So, of course, I did what any teacher would do in her "spare" time... I created my own.  I stayed up for much of the night, determined to get it done, and it was well worth the time and effort.  My students absolutely loved it.  I'm currently selling the entire 12-page pack on TPT for $2.50 at , but just for being my amazing readers, you get to have a FREE 5-page sampler here:

Fragment Frustration & Sentence Helper FREEBIE

If you're anything like me, you tend to get frustrated when, at the end of the school year, your students aren't journaling in complete sentences.  Something like this motivated me to create worksheets such as the freebie below which forced my students to look at their writing from the teacher's perspective.  Upon reading the sample sentences, my students couldn't believe that "other" students would dare to write like that!  After this assignment, I immediately saw an instant change in the quality of their writing.  Enjoy this freebie, and if you really like it, get rest of the packet at:
