Google+, Rubrics, and Month By Month Writing Portfolio

Has anyone been using Google+ lately? I'm new at it and I'm looking for some tips! lol I'm not sure that I understand the whole thing... Teachers Pay Teachers has just started their own page so I thought I'd jump in. I've been signed up on Google+ for quite some time but never did anything with it so now I'm struggling!
I started by adding some fellow bloggers/TPT sellers to my circles but don't know where to go from here...
If you are on Google+ and want to add me or be added to my circles, let me know by leaving me a comment. We can maybe attempt to figure it out together ;)

I didn't get many comments on my last post. I hope this doesn't mean not many people are interested in my Writing Rubric Pack!
I'm going to assume it's because many of you are busy soaking up the sun instead of blog stalking ;)
Anyway, congrats to Kimberley for winning this pack.  I love your business card idea for positive reinforcement, by the way!


And now for my latest addition to my TPT and TN stores.
Here is my Writing Portfolio Pack!


This year, my grade 2 students had a journal called "This is me in...". Basically, every month they would fill out a writing sheet titled "This is me in (insert the month here)". Every month they were given a writing prompt and were asked to write a few sentences. The point of all this was to record their improvement during the year and have a little booklet to show their parents at the end of the year.
This activity was really cute but our booklet was pretty boring. So, of course, I decided to fix it for next year!
I created 2 different types of writing paper and made them with both primary and secondary lines. So for each month, there are 4 choices of writing paper. Students can either choose their own or the teacher can choose for the entire class. At the end of the year, these pages are put together to make a nice little keepsake! I think parents will really like to see their kid's writing improvement displayed this way :)

Now for the freebie of the week!
I am giving everyone the writing prompt for September.


If you like what you see, you can get the whole pack at my TPT store and my TN store.
Hope you and your kiddies enjoy this!
