Work Frenzy

I realized yesterday that I only had 15 days until I have to be at work.  While I've been pinning a lot of ideas, I haven't actually done any!  It's time for me to get to work!

I made a new set of class rules.

This is my first year using the Whole Brain Rules.  I used the callbacks last year and they worked wonderfully.  Click HERE to download them for free.

I also cut out my new number line - in pink & green, of course!

I ran up to school to laminate everything and also make copies for my Rise and Shine Binders.  I just bought them from Reagan Tunstall.  I loved her post about how she uses them and honestly I'm tired of making copies for morning work.  We don't have a copy count yet, but I'm afraid it's coming. The kids really do trickle in and I feel that it's always their morning work that gets the best of them (at least for the late arrivals).  After awhile I know the work won't be as challenging (she suggests adding morning work in the back), so I plan on putting Cara Caroll's Calendar Companion in the page protectors in October.

I'm going to make this today.  Sadly, the pin doesn't link to a source.  But it is based off of the Calendar Companion.  I tried to go in my room to grab some sentence strips, but someone moved all of the furniture right in front of my closet.  It was not worth the effort to move the furniture for some sentence strips.  ;)  

When do you go back to school?  Teachers start August 1st and the students come back August 12th at my school.

  1. Ooh la la! I'm in love with these rise and shine binders! I might try those this year because I HATE morning work...especially how early kids finish super fast and late kids never finish at all. This is a great solution! Thanks for sharing!
