Bear Watch and a Freebie!!

 I love living in the country!

Where else can you have a visit from a bear at 2:00 in the morning?!!

Needless to say I was wide awake after the visit and my husband spent the rest of the night on bear watch!! 

Wish I had a picture of the bear, but let me say it was huge!! 

Now for something completely different!
I wanted to share with you what I have been working on and have just posted in my TpT store.

It is: Message In A Bottle Scrambled Sentences and Capitals!

If you would like to check it out just click on the picture of the cover.

I thought of a cute way to store this station!!
I made a water bottle into my message bottle!
I hot glued the labels(that are included in the product) to my water bottle.
Then I cut out the sentences and stored them in my bottle!
When students go to the station, they open the bottle and pull out the message.
Then they write the sentence(message)correctly on the response sheet.
What a fun station!!

 There is also a sorting game for words that need capital letters and words that need small letters.

Since this station is about sentences and using capital letters, I made a math freebie to go along with it!!

To grab this freebie, click on the picture!

Hope you have a magnificent Monday!!
