There are bunch of little things I've been meaning to post but just haven't quite gotten around to it. In an organizing frenzy one night, I made some binder covers. I was inspired by some great ones I'd found from Rowdy in Room 300, but I needed slightly different titles for my binders. I am loving how the polka dot / stripes combo came out. I made binder covers for my Lesson Plans, Student Data, Literacy Assessments, CAFE, and AIMS Web. Click HERE to grab your own copy.
Our district uses the McGraw-Hill Treasures reading series. One of the graphic organizers I love from the series is the "Somebody-Wanted-But-So" chart. It's so helpful when we discuss the story after we read. I wanted a chart for my kiddos to complete that had some cute fonts on it. I love the HOWSER font from Kevin and Amanda Fonts. The best part is, all their fonts are FREE! Check out the graphic organizer below and if you want a copy of your own, CLICK HERE.
Last, but not least, we had our first round of parent conferences last week. I wanted my firsties to complete a quick (and easy!) writing piece that I could give to their parents to start the conference off on a positive note. I had them write about their favorite thing to do in first grade. Some of my kids really surprised me with what they like best in our classroom! CLICK HERE to grab your own copy.
Alright, enough randomness for one evening. I'm off to watch more election coverage... I hope you all Rocked the Vote today!!!
