Vocabulary Books

I made these vocabulary books for my new little firsties.  We will be using them throughout the year when we run across words that I think my firsties need to know.   

I like that I can use these for ALL subjects.

You can grab yourself a copy by clicking on the pictures! 
Happy teaching, friends!

Random Freebies

I've been trying to get my room ready and here are a couple things I have been working on and I thought I would offer them as free downloads because there might be one or two people who could find some use for them.

Here is my discipline board:

  Clothespins will go on the first purple oval  (Yes, that is really purple!  It is showing up blue in this picture)  When students misbehave, they move to white as a warning.  Then on to yellow and then red.
(Thanks Tammy and kindergarten ladies for this idea! 
And, thank you Tammy, for making me one!!!)

If you use Whole Brain Teaching, then you might recognize the rules in the picture (or not, since there is an awful glare on them.)
Rule #1  Listen when your teacher is talking.
Rule #2  Follow directions quickly.
Rule #3 Make smart choices.
Rule #4  Raise your hand when you wish to speak.
Rule #5  Keep your dear teacher happy.

You can download the rules HERE. 

I also decided to change the center tags I had on my poster and on the center tables.
(see the cute little owls with 1-5 on them)
If you want to read about how I do centers, you can go Here.
If you would like a copy of the cute little owls, just click on the picture.

I also made these desk tags.  You can grab yourself a copy by clicking on the picture.

Hope you are all getting your rooms off to a great start!
