Welcome back to another Spotlight Saturday! I took a 2 week vacation from blogging. I'd like to say that I was parked beach front somewhere reading a good book, but it was actually due to some crazy schedules, a sick child, a trip "home" to see my parents, and a stubborn laptop.
Hopefully this post finds you transitioning smoothly into the new school year, enjoying your new students, and tackling all the adventures each new school year brings. How about some freebies??
Christina would love for you to check out one of her management systems where students are trained to use their non verbal cues to let you know what they need. Needing the restroom, a sharpened pencil, a tissue, a drink, and having a question or answer to share are included in her "Show Me the Number" system. This system can be used with any grade level. Go check it out!
Ms. Soud knows the importance of parent communication! She's sharing a Parent Contact Journal with you. It includes an interest inventory for your students, Parent Contact Form, Parent Contact Log, Behavior Journal, and a Classroom Newsletter editable with Powerpoint. The forms are nicely organized and the clipart makes you feel right at home as a teacher. These forms are mostly suitable for K-2 grade levels. Grab a helpful freebie!
Last, but certainly not least, we have Denise's literacy center using the BOOK ORDERS you send home with students all the time. What a clever idea to put the extra book order forms (You know you get TONS) in a center and let the students do some activities using those forms! Reap the benefits from getting those forms out, utilizing them, AND sending them home for students to order! Who doesn't love the bonus points from a book order? You'll never get tired of these!
If you downloaded a freebie today, don't forget to leave some feedback! Sometimes that's all it takes to keep these fabulous creators going!
ENJOY the rest of your weekend, friends. Catch a good college football game, grill out, hang out with some friends, and schedule a nap! Those lesson plans aren't going anywhere.
Bananas for the nap I WILL make time for this weekend,
