Prompt Jar and History Field Experience

I just finished my Writing Workstation Prompt Jar in the nick of time.  Tomorrow I leave for my Teaching American History field experience vacation.  I'll start with the Prompt Jar.  I'm so excited to add this workstation to my TpT and TN stores.  It is a favorite of my students.  The jar is perfect for those students who never seem to have anything to write about each day.  The prompt jar picks the topic for them.  It also helps prepare for prompt writing on standardized testing.  Here's a preview but feel free to check out my stores for a closer look!
Now on to the vacation field experience.  Tomorrow I will be traveling to the south with 12 other teachers to end our Teaching American History grant experience.  It will be a five day trip on chartered bus through Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama.  Our topic this year was 20th century history focusing on the Civil Rights Movement.  We will be stopping at The King Center, as well as several other museums.  Our grand finale will be a short stop at.... GRACELAND!  Many may think I'm crazy, but I'm so excited!!  I grew up on Elvis music and movies.  I sure hope it lives up to my expectations lol!  Anyway, I'm not sure about the wireless connection that I'll have over the next five days but hopefully I'll be able to blog a few times while I'm gone!

  4. Thank you for stopping by my giveaway and I am your newest follower!! TAH is near and dear to my heart. I was in the original group starting in 2002 or 2003 in my county and continued with the grant every summer for seven years. Now, our group has started its own take off called TDHAH (Teachers Discovering History As Historians). It was such an AWESOME experience and I learned so much! So glad to have found your blog:)
