Give me your BEST ideas for a chatty class! Specifically, for those times when the teacher is talking. Quiet Spray is a little trick I keep up my sleeve. It's a magical spray (the bottle is empty 😜) that I spray around the room. How do you get and hold your students' attention?

I'm not even sure what to say right now. I'm heartbroken and disgusted. We have to call out hate when we see it. (📷 credit: @love.tanesha)
We survived the first week back to school! We had our parent meeting last night, and I had parents fill out a wish for their first graders before we started. It's always a sweet tradition that I love to do! Head to the link in profile for this freebie and more. http://bit.ly/2vuEicV 👉🏻@thelemonadestandteacher

If you don't want to buy curtains, you can use fadeless paper instead! Just use some border around it to give it a more polished look, and add a little pendant below to finish it off. I did this last year, and it's still going strong!
I ended up using this last year for filing student common formative assessments, rather than for mailboxes. But those hanging files are still my favorite. 💙 I got those from Amazon and the label is apart of my Farmhouse Decor Bundle.
I can't wait to read this one next week! Or to get back to doing anchor charts again. ❤️
All of my Interactive Read Aloud Lessons are planned, printed, and ready to go for the month of August! Tonight is the last night to grab it on sale. The Bundle for the Entire Year is also on sale at a major discount until completed. You can check them out through the link in my profile! @thelemonadestandteacher http://bit.ly/2fa2q0r
I loved having my books organized by months this past year. It saved so much time, because I knew where to find what I needed for that month. The baskets are the #dollartree ones that I just spray painted. 📚
This reading strategies banner hangs right above my guided reading table. Therefore, it gets used a lot! Check it out while it's on sale if you need these as a reference for your table, too. It even includes a craft for each animal strategy! Use the link in my profile to check it out! 👉🏻 @thelemonadestandteacher http://bit.ly/2f6wrOy
