Winner Wednesday

Can you believe it's July already?? Why does the summer seem to fly by so very quickly??? I hope you are enjoying every last moment of your summer vacation!

Since this is the first Wednesday of the month, I am linking up with the super-sweet A Dab of Glue Will Do for her Winner Wednesday link up!

This link up is all about getting the chance to win some amazing products! Everyone who links up is raffling off one of their creations, and you can hop around deciding which ones you want to take a chance on! It's a great opportunity to win a whole bunch of really awesome resources for the upcoming school year!

I am raffling off one of my best-selling packets, Author and Illustrator Activities. You can check it out here in my TPT store.
In kindergarten, one of our Reading standards is to be able to identify the jobs of the author and illustrator and differentiate between them. I created this packet as a way for students to practice identifying the similarities and differences between the jobs of the author and illustrator.

There is a sorting activity for students to discuss which tools they believe are used by an author, which by an illustrator, and if there are any tools that could be used by both. I use the color version as my teacher set or the set that I put out at centers. There is a black and white set that can be made for each student to use.

There are also some writing pages included. Students are asked to draw and label three tools used by an author or illustrator, and then to choose one of the tools and write how it was used and what it was used for.

There are also cut and paste sorting pages to sort the tools used by each, as well as a page where students can sort the tools that both would use in their job.

The activities in this packet really help my kinders to understand the difference between the jobs of an author or illustrator. If you would like to win a copy of this pack, enter the Rafflecopter drawing below. You have all of Wednesday to enter, and I will announce the winner on Thursday. Good luck!
