From time to time, I like to post a little update on what I’ve been up to! Here we go.
I found these stamps at Target and they have added some fun to my grading sessions! You can find them in the Target Dollar Spot.
Do you see these labels on these book bins? I made them a few years ago but I never got around to labeling the individual books to match. I finally set aside some time to get that done.
Just look at all these cuties!
I labeled all my books and now it’s super easy for my kids to return their books back in the right spot!
This is what they look like when they are all in there. If you would like to see more detailed info about how I organize my library, check out THIS BLOG POST.
I then needed to make a book hospital to match! My six year old owl themed one just didn’t belong anymore.
The book hospital saves the day when a student finds a ripped book. Instead of them coming to me in a panic so that I can fix it right away, they place it in this bin! My kids know to choose a replacement book so that their bins still have five books.
In case you are wondering what bins I’m speaking of, you can see them above. Each child has a bin in my class and they get to choose any five books from the classroom library each week. They exchange their books on Fridays or Mondays. The labels cut down the time it takes to return all the books back to the right bin.
Are you a fan of checklists? A sweet teacher, @katieplus4, shared this picture of her teacher checklists she created with my templates. It fills my heart when I see my products being used by other teachers. If you use any of my resources, please tag me @learninginwonderland! Seriously makes my day!
We caught the KerPlunk bug thanks to @headoverheelsforteaching! We are pulling a stick every time someone gives us a compliment for walking in a nice line or great behavior on campus. So far one ball has fallen and the kids are so excited! I think we are going to see some action next week from what I can see.
One of my goals was to leave this table clean by the end of the day. It’s usually almost clean because I use this table with my small groups but there is always something on it that shouldn’t be there. It hasn’t been cleared off completely since the holidays. I was determined to finally clean it up and I did it! Walking into a nice clean work area does me so much good each weekday. I’m not sure why, but it does. #it’sthelittlethings
I was able to walk out this week with it being clean by the end of the day. Let’s see if I can do it again next week 🙂
