ghost under the sheet

Oh my, it has been since July since my last post.  My life has literally been a roller coaster the last few months…  I got the dream job.  I left a great second grade classroom 13 years ago and here I am back in second grade again.  I was hired 1 day before school started.  Now that I started school successfully with an empty classroom and no lesson plans, I pretty much think I can handle any teacher type of pressure you put on me.  I absolutely adore the school and staff I am working with.  I love, love, love my students!!! ...

eaSY AND eFFECTIVE bEHAVIOR mANAGEMENT

Tired of clip charts, need a new behavior management system for your classroom that is easy to use and set-up? I have never been a big fan of clip charts.  I have tried them in various classrooms and they worked ok, but I always forgot to have students move clips up.  I felt they were more of a pain then a way of encouraging good behavior.  However, I have made them for friends and even sell them in my store.  Some of my best friends use them and love them.  Over the last two years I have been reading all I can on Whole Brain Teaching...

Last Day Balloon Pop

It’s been a bit since I have shown up in your inbox, right?  This year has been quite an adjustment for me!  Going back to work full time when you have been your own boss for 10+ years, has proved to be an adjustment.  Something had to give – I guess Teaching Heart gave! Anyhow, I finished the year with a long term subbing position in third grade!  I LOVED having my own classroom again – even if it was short lived.  It was nice to know what I was going into each day!  Plus I loved the group of kids I got to work with. ...

Figure Me Out With Free Printables to Match

Getting ready to finish out the year in third grade.  When I start I want to do a few get to know you type of activities that are meaningful.  I was pin-inspired by this activity seen here.   So I started by making printables to create a board I could use for years to come….  I laminated the titles, questions, and numbers.  Since my answers will change over the years, I used sticky notes to display my figures.  I thought it would be fun to introduce myself this way.  Then have the kids make up some figures about themselves...
