Happy Monday!! I know a lot of people are starting their first day with students today - so I hope all of you are having a great day. I myself am trying to get things crossed off my to do list and enjoy the end of summer at the same time : ) I am also linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for her amazing linky....
I remade my shared writing journals for my new class. I glue on the cover then cover with packing tape to add durability. I put writing prompts and a checklist on the inside cover. I also use stickers - each journal has a matching sticker. Students have a tracking page they put in their language notebook and each time the write in a journal they place a sticker on their page. You can check out my journals here at my TPT store.
I was talking to one of my teaching friends about binder covers and how she could not find any that she really wanted so I made some to see if they were more what she wanted. They are chevrons and owls and are editable and a freebie - you can pick them up here in my TPT store.
Lastly we laminated and cut and laminated and cut. Here are the word wall cards I will be using (click here to check out where I got them) and my schedule cards (from this pack).
Okay this is it for me - off to check out my to do list - well after reading a few MMI blog posts of course.
