I am so excited to be linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for...
I made my Shared Writing Journals. I used a lot of information from Holly's post on her shared writing journal experience when creating these.
I used journals from the dollar store and full page mailing labels to make the front and inside covers.
Erin at I'm Lovin Lit, clipart from Thistlegirl and Scrappin Doodles and a font from Cara Carroll. Since I teach a 3/4 split I did not ask for the journal entries to be in paragraph form yet - I will change the directions in the new year once I teach paragraph writing again.
I wish I could share these files but I do not have a licence for the Thistlegirl clipart :(
I put the picture on the front and instructions on the inside. I liked Holly's idea of including numbered stickers for students to put in their personal journals as a way of tracking which students had completed which shared journals so I made stickers that matched the clipart to put in the front cover too.
I used the wonderful free PPT from Rachel at The Tattooed Teacher to make an Instagram button for my blog because, woohoo, I made an Instagram account. I am just starting, but would love if you would follow along with me, just click on the camera!
I made a Math Goals chart that I blogged about last Wednesday. Click here to pick up the problem solving portion.
I made a Writing Goals chart for my classroom. I will be attaching the pages with binder rings and hanging it on magnetic hooks (or the 3M hooks if I change my mind on where to hang it). I am using binder rings so I can change out the goals throughout the year. I am not sure if I will use student numbered magnets or clips or just an arrow for the ones we are focusing on, still thinking that through.
Here is a picture of the rough draft hanging in my bathroom : )
You can check it out in my TPT store if you want. It includes the writing goals I needed for my classroom (I switched them from this rough draft to be in I statements) and an editable file too.
And I am so, so close to being finished my Reading Goals chart but we went to Niagara Falls and I just did not finish it : (
Lastly I made it to 500+ followers on bloglovin and it made my day : ). So to celebrate I am having a giveaway with lots of prizes from some amazing bloggers. Be sure to come back tomorrow to enter.
