Pizza Portfolios...Freebie and Giveaway!!

All summer I was so excited about the prospect of doing Pizza Box Portfolios in writing this year.  A few weeks before school my plans were altered.  I sent my computer to be worked on, a screen issue, and received it back with NO MEMORY!!!! I cried. 

Okay, so skip forward. I lost all and am creating new. I went to Dominos and they gracious gave me 20 pizza boxes. :) Happy Day! 
This is our Writing Delivery Station. My kids love the days they get to deliver writing pieces to their portfolio.

They did such a good job decorating and preparing their Portfolios.

Now, back to the computer stuff. Well I had to start from scratch, after losing a 50 page document for my Pizza Box Portfolios. You may remember seeing pieces of it in a previous post. Well it is long gone. So I created a more concise and Common Core focused product, 30 pages, to use instead. I love it so far. My kids are having a wonderful time using the writing organizers and we are currently in the process of learning how to self assess with my student rubrics. We use our Writing Spectrum to help with our Student Self Assessment Rubric.

LOVE THIS!! So glad I finally got this together and am putting into work in the classroom. Here is a freebie from my soon to be posted TPT product.

To celebrate a successful start I am giving away a free copy of the entire TPT product to one lucky person. To enter you must follow my blog, and post a comment letting me know your favorite writing assignment for your students. I will choose a winner on Wednesday September 18th, 2013. ENJOY and God Bless.


  1. I am so proud of the teacher you have become :) Your students are so blessed to have you!!

    We are currently doing two different writings in our classroom. First we are focusing on "Charlotte's Web." We are learning about our own personality traits through the characters. Second, we are creating our own class book based on "The Very Hungry Caterpillar." The students are learning to use sequencing, temporal words, descriptions, and realistic fiction.
