Many of you have seen the above picture in my picasa web album for years and have emailed me for the document....here is a public link.
Here are few more freebies and other posters to get your room off to a positive start.
Morning Meeting Poster
Here is a list of books to launch Reader's Workshop...all reading related:
For those of you with CD players in your classroom and a listening center for students to listen to reading, here is a sign so students can manage the center more independently.
Our school also has a Meet the Teacher event a couple of days before school starts...really just a time for parent, students and teachers to meet and greet each other and for students to peek into their classroom. Here are some documents that you may find helpful during this event including a Smartboard slide with a Classroom Giving Tree....add sticky notes to it with words like Kleenex, hand sanitizer, cardstock, labels, ziploc bags, a wagon, etc., and see what parents are willing to donate...you'd be surpised!
Guided Reading Videos: I have two 30-minute guided reading videos on my helloliteracy website.
One lesson is a first grade guided reading lesson with a level 4 book, that was recorded on the first day of first grade. The second video was recorded in February of first grade, using a level 14 text.
Also, don't forget to download the free Pinterest app on iTunes.
There have several updates to this app since last week, and it works much better. If you need an invite, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
