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.

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!

Helping Students Become Active Learners: Assessment Freebie

Helping your students learn to be active learners can be a tricky task, as it requires an internal, conscious effort to make the change.  Many students don't know how to become active learners, and they also don't know where they currently lie on the continuum of passive to active learning.  Here is a freebie assessment that you can use with your students to help them learn more about their ways of learning and also assist them in taking charge and making a mindful effort to improve their learning habits.  Click here for your freebie assessment.

Free CLOSE Problem Solving Bookmarks

Friends~I am here to share my CLOSE Problem Solving Bookmarks with you!  My kiddos did great with these in small group and once they were ready to roll with them on their own,  I added them to my math workshop rotation.  

The bookmarks walk the students through step by step directions on how to get close with a word problem. Just like a close read in reading!  

These bookmarks are so easy to make. All you need to do is print them out and glue them together. I laminate them to keep them in good shape.  These are also great to send home for students to use with homework.  
Download a FREE copy over on my blog by clicking the picture below!
Be sure to download the video tutorial all about my problem solving steps!

Non Fiction Text Feature Freebie

Friends~I love teaching with nonfiction books in the classroom.  My students get so much out of the reading and it is super easy to hit your reading and science/social studies goals this way.  

I have a great FREEBIE for you today!  Take your kiddos on a nonfiction text feature hunt!  I first introduce this freebie in my guided reading groups and then add it to our center rotation. 

It is so simple to use.  Students record facts that they learned and color in the text features that they noticed during the reading.
