Ta-da!! Literally the ONLY thing I bought for my room this year!! Normally I waste money at the dollar spot or staples on things I DON'T need - not happening this year! I actually needed this in my storage closet, so I'm very happy with this being my only purchase ☺️☺️👍🏻 #classroomorganization #btsreadywithtpt #classroomsetup
Join me on Facebook LIVE in 30 minutes where I'm going to talk to you all about Evidence-Based Writing and how I use it in my classroom! It has been a GAME changer for me! Link to find is on FB in our profile ☺️ See you soon!
With my due date only 2.5 weeks away, I had to get a TON done in my new 8th grade classroom today! Thanks to the help of my mom, dad, and hubby, we were able to tackle most of it!! See my stories for a tour of the whole room! #btsreadywithtpt #classroomdecor #classroomsetup #classroomorganization #classroomlibrary #backtoschool
These sketch notes are so cool from @doc_cop !! I bet my 8th graders would LOVE doing this! Do you do sketch notes with your kiddos?
I LOVE this absolutely brilliant first day of school activity from @bsbooklove !! Students tear out a page in an old dictionary and then circle three words that represent their past, present, and future!! What a fun conversation starter for your secondary classroom! If you're not following Ashley already, definitely go check out her IG for other brilliant ideas as well ☺️ #btsreadywithtpt
Loving this easy growth mindset weekly tracker idea from @elementarynest !! Students simply write one way they used growth mindset in the classroom that week - or you could even have them do what they PLAN to use in the classroom on Monday and then write a small reflection on Friday! 💕☺️
Headed home to these monkeys and my sweet husband! It was a great trip to SoCal, and now it's time to get ready for this baby to arrive! Lots to get finished before he makes his debut 💕☺️
As cute as it is, I'm kind of looking forward to not having an AR Goal chart with my 8th graders next year ... 💁🏼We're still using AR, just in a different way than I did with my 5th graders. I'd love to know your opinion / personal experience with AR in middle school! I've heard quite the mixed reviews ...!
I always love getting to spend time with some of my favorite friends!! Wish I still lived in Manhattan Beach with you ladies! 💕☺️ #tptoc17
This Instagram Character Activity is always a student favorite! It's FREE in our tpt store - use the link in our profile or here to download -> bit.ly/IGActivity
Who said Word Walls are only for the younger grades? I loved having this word wall last year in my classroom! I just printed out an uppercase letter on various colors of cardstock. Then, as I introduced new vocabulary words, I taped them up! That way my kiddos didn't just learn and forget their vocabulary words throughout the year -they were always right there! 💕☺️ I'll be using it again in 8th grade this year, too! #BTSReadyWithTpT #classroomorganization #classroomdecor #classroomsetup
