Today is my birthday! This is a firstie for me.... usually I don't tell anyone it is my birthday.... why? well... I don't like the spotlight on me. I am one of those quiet, let's keep it hushed, I don't want to think about my age, it's just another day kind of person. But most of all I would be totally embarrassed if the fire department had to come to my house to put out a fire only to discover it was just the candles on my cake! :) And... I am totally embarrassed when people sing happy birthday to me. I appreciate it! I really do, but it's that spotlight thing.
But, today I thought .... why not? Let's just go ahead and announce it! But most of all, I wanted to share this with you and so decided I'll give a birthday present to you.
I love thinking maps! I use them all the time with my kinders... To me it helps them organize their thoughts and so much more. I think I am going to put this brace map in my writing center for next week. Here is a model of the snowman brace map and the vocabulary words to go with it.
Hope you enjoy my birthday gift to you! You can download it here.
