OK ok ok... I know I am about 8.5 hours early, but I couldn't resist doing currently before it was officially January 2013.  If you have never joined this linky, here is your chance.  Head on over to Farley's page and get in on the fun!
Don't forget the rule of 3...
Hope everyone has a safe and fun NYE!!
2013 here I come!!

I am joining Michelle over at Making it as a Middle School Teacher with a 2013 New Years Linky.  I think this will be something for me to look back at and check my progress on my goals and aspirations.  Head on over and link up!
So we studied plot this year and I revamped added printable to make it an easier process... Sometimes I like to keep the copying to a minimum.  We did the plot mountain again and added hand gestures and body movements to it to remember it.  Here is what the students put in their spirals...
The Plot Map definitions are in my Teacher's notebook store as a freebie.  Can you tell that I am a little anal and that I like things to match?  When I was in school I used to color code things to help me remember what they meant or went with, so I figured I'd pass that along to my kiddos.
We also had a plot quiz, which will be
 available in my store also.
FYI-I am trying to catch up with all of the blog posts I have missed in the last few months, so there will be a few differents topics in a row.  These lessons span over a 2 month period.
I can't believe that December is already here!  We have been running full steam ahead and I hope to get some updated posts up soon.  Since it is the first of the month, I'll link up with Farley's Currently first.
