Free Birthday Printable

What are the two days kids look forward to all year long?

Well for my own children and students it was Christmas and their birthday. So to help you stretch your school budget just a little, I created these free birthday crowns.  All you have to do is print them on card stock, cut, and staple them together.  Students can color them or you can print them on colored paper.

Welcome to School: Making Words and Sentences

Are you looking for a fun activity for the 1st week of school? How about a "Welcome to School" Making Words and Sentences. First students make 2,3,4,5 or more letter words and then choose 3 or 4 words to use in sentences. Here's the Making Words page:
Here's one of the the Writing Sentences pages.
Just click on the image below to download your free "Welcome to School" packet. 
Thanks for all you do to make a difference for your students.


A Dozen Classroom Management Posters

I really like using posters as classroom management tools.  I can hold one up, explain it and then hang it on the wall to review, reinforce and gently remind later on.

I sometimes use them as writing prompts to jumpstart my students imaginations.  They can explain what they think the poster means and tell me if they agree or disagree with it.

Because "back to school" is quickly approaching, I thought I'd post a dozen of my most popular classroom management ones.  Some are my version of popular quotes that I found on the web.

I hope you find them useful.  Click on the link to grab them.   A Dozen Free Classroom Management posters.

Back to School Reading Survey

Hi everyone!

As I get ready for a new class of students (in about 3 weeks for me), I think about all the activities I want to do to get to know all the new faces that will enter my classroom. Part of getting to know a new group of students is finding out about their reading interests. I want to make sure that I have books available in my classroom reading center that reflect their interests.

I created a packet of reading surveys to give to my students during the beginning of the school year.

Click on the picture to download. Each of the surveys is 2 pages long and can be used for students at different levels. 


Alphabet Flashcards

The Make, Take & Teach alphabet flashcards are ideal for small group instruction.  Students and teachers alike love these colorful cards.  Just click HERE to download this freebie!


Free! Sentence Posters

Getting your classroom ready for the new school year?  Consider adding these free posters to your ELA area on your walls.
Use these three colorful and informative posters to help your students remember how to identify simple, compound, and complex sentences. A handout is also included for quick reference.

Happy Teaching!

I have mine posted outside my classroom door in the hallway.  I am also please at how many students stop to look at them.

Do you Daily 5?

I've been doing some form of Daily 5 for about 4 years now.  I really like the organization and ease of running the system!  Starting my fifth year of it I'll be tweeking it again to fit my needs!  This year I am having Read to Self all at the same time rather than a choice.  I like the peacefulness when everyone reads at the same time.  This will also give me another conference opportunity!

If you would like some Daily 5 Headers and a Daily 5 Check-in Sheet with a monkey theme.  Stop over to a previous post!  I use these headers for my bulletin board after we establish the rules for each of the areas.

I'm so happy to be able to join you at Classroom Freebies!  Please stop by for your freebie and stay for some extra browsing!

Sports Learning Fun!

Hey teaching friends!  I have created a fun rhyming game just for YOU! :)

This game is easy to set up - just copy, laminate, and cut out the cards. Students will take turns picking word cards and saying rhyming words to go with their chosen card. You can also use the points system if you want an added layer (or differentiation for those students that are ready for it). Math and language arts all rolled into one!

Enjoy this freebie from Organized Classroom!
