Thanks soooo much to Tara for hosting this fabulous linky! I
waste so much time get so many great ideas from all the link-ups!!! :o)
I created a new Book Nook chart to match the adorable backgrounds now found EVERYWHERE in my room. 🙂 If you aren’t familiar with how I do Book Nooks, check this post out.
I was waiting to get names on the clips until I was sure of who would be in my room for Reading… since I have some students pulled out for an Advanced Class. I also told them they wouldn’t get a Book Nook until they could read for at least 20 minutes (we’re working on stamina!) and we’re only on 7 minutes with no quitters or interruptions now……. so I have some time. LOL
I put together my task card pocket files! I am so excited about these- I hope my kids will be, too!
Recognize those from my Target Dollar Spot shopping spree?? :o)
I also started collecting for my new student bags…
Basically, anything ALL of my students have in the room, it goes in this bag for when a new student arrives at my door, which is bound to happen….
Last, I created a geography vocabulary flipbook for my students to glue into their Social Studies notebooks. My students will glue down the side with the pictures, and the word will be the flap. They will write the definition under the flap! One of my teammates said she wanted to use something like this to cover our landforms we have to teach very quickly, and I loved the idea so of course, I had to just make it!! You can grab it for free if it’s helpful to you! (It’s not all of the landforms, it’s only the ones we have to teach in our grade.)
That’s all for today! It’s sad to be back in school and not get to be one of the early link-ups anymore in linky parties! 😛 Now, off to get some more things done for school tomorrow!
