Monday Made it and Winners

Well, it's Sunday night and that means time to upload my Monday Made it. Do you all have a system to let your students know where your class has disappeared to? I never had a system but boy did I need one. Last year, I  had a few students who were constantly tardy. It was a major problem especially on days where we had to leave the room unexpectedly. We would be at pictures, an assembly or testing in the computer lab and my students had no idea where to find us. I also had volunteers who would pop in and not know where we were. Well, I have the perfect solution.
Where Are We Sign

posters included- lots of color options
In this packet you can select over 30 different cards/icons. There are even two sizes to choose from. I have included many poster choices if you aren't going the pizza pan route.


CRAFT #2
I also need to beef up my Writer's Workshop so I made this little clip chart to help me keep track of my student's writing progress.

Winners of  the Where are We Set  from last week

I'll be sending over the file. Thanks for commenting.

  12. Absolutely love the "where are we" board. I'm totally going to make one!!
    I'm getting ready to work on my Writer's Workshop pencil clip chart, too. How do you get it to stick out far enough off the wall to where students can easily move their clips around?

  19. Here's 2 ideas for a writing packet...

    -NON FICTION piece...some type of research on animals is always a hit!
    -PERSUASIVE...this is something kids have a hard time with, especially coming up with good reasons to back up their opinions!

  23. For writing packet ideas, I am looking for a good handout for book review and book commercial forms. I just bought Literature Worksheets (22 ready to use pages for any book) at TpT http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Literature-Worksheets-22-Ready-to-Use-Pages-for-Any-Book
    I love the variety and how they are aligned with CCSS. These are the types of prompts that students are expected to perform on state assessments but they are colorful and seem "more fun"!
