Teacher Week {2013}

It's day 3 of Teacher Week and today is all about organizing our classrooms!  We go back to school on August 26th, so I still have a ways to go on my classroom.  I actually look forward to decorating my class every year and love making it bright and comfy. 

Does your classroom library need a little organization?  Then this is perfect for you.  I have included 54 labels for book bins for an elementary classroom library. Different genres, authors, and series are included. Look at preview to see all labels.
Genres: holidays, mystery, solar system, poetry, science, weather, holidays, biography, trains, dinosaur, history, and many more!
Authors: Judy Blume, Louis Sachar, Roald Dahl, Beverly Cleary, Andrew Clements, Jerry Spinelli, and many more!
Series: I Survived, American Girls, Wayside School, Stink, Geronimo Stilton, Boxcar Children, Babysitter's Club, Magic Tree House, and many more!
You can purchase this item for $3.00 from my TpT store.

Made It Monday

I am linking up a day early with 4th Grade Frolics for my favorite weekly linky! After this week is it turning into a monthly linky for the school year.  I have two Made it Monday items that I created this week.  The first one is a freebie :)

Before Reading Activity Menu 

This four page freebie is a great addition to reading centers or Daily 5 activities. There are three different before reading menus with 9 activities on each card.  Click here for this freebie. 

Common Core: Text Dependent Question Prompts

The Common Core standards focus on students’ ability to read closely to determine what a text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it.

Rather than asking students questions about their prior knowledge or experience, the standards expect students to respond to questions that can only be answered by referring explicitly back to the text in front of them. This resource contains 16 text dependent questions. It can be used as a center or for small groups.

Back to School

I have been slowly getting my new classroom in order.  It's hard to get started when you have a blank slate, but also leaves room for a lot of imagination.  So far I've done a couple of bulletin boards and a lot of organizing.  Here's what I have so far...

Math Freebie and Currently August

Adding and Subtracting Money using a Menu

This activity is one of my best sellers and also a student FAVORITE!  I created a menu that I glued on to construction paper and laminated. I used them every year. The document is 9 pages and includes the menu and worksheets for adding and subtracting money. Students pretend they are a waiter or waitress and take orders from each other in order to add and subtract money.

August Already??

Wow, how is it already August?  I am a few days late with linking up with Currently, but I've been super busy.  As I mentioned before, I am switching counties and starting at a new school teaching 4th grade.  I am very excited about the change, but anxious as well.  I also just moved this week.  So regardless to say, I've been extremely busy. 

Don't forget to link up with Farley's Currently for August.
