Zebra Themed Binder Freebie & Contraction Freebie!



     
   I’m joining The Teaching Tribune for Worksheet Wednesday! I have two freebies for you. 

        Okay, I am pretty sure I need zebra intervention. I found the cutest set of zebra themed clip art and backgrounds at Sweet Shoppe Designs. The whole set was on sale, so I couldn’t help myself. I’ve created the pages for my teacher binder. There are twelve different covers total. I may create more later if I need them or if someone else needs them.

Here are a few of the pages! Aren’t they just the cutest. The binder set will make me smile all school year.

                 I’m joining Fabulous in First for her Sunday Smorgasbord! You should head over there to see all the other neat smorgasbord of ideas from great bloggers.  
I love zebra themed anything, (and I mean anything). I’ve been working on updating a few things in my classroom and of course, they had to be zebra themed. 
Your Zone Zebra Decorative Bath Collection - Wastecan
I purchased a new trash pail for next to my small group table. I found it at Walmart in the bath department for $8.96
I created zebra number circles for 1-100. Click on the picture to download them for free! 
I’m also looking for tutorials on how to redo my office chair! I have a cloth office chair at one of my student computers, and it needs a makeover badly. If you know of an excellent tutorial that doesn’t require a lot of skills, please send it my way. 
Be sure to follow me on Facebook! I’ve been sharing some awesome flash freebies from all the great teacher-bloggers I follow. Click on the picture to head to my Facebook page! Also, if you’re an awesome blogger on Facebook share the link. I would love to follow you!

Worksheet Wednesday and What's Happening Wednesday



            I am joining The Teaching Tribune for Worksheet Wednesday! My freebie for the linky isn’t technically a worksheet, but I thought you would still like it. I have a zebra themed classroom and wanted to share the zebra love. I’ve created zebra themed parts of speech posters. 
Click here to grab the whole set! 
      If your interested in finding more great freebies for the classroom head over to The Teaching Tribune to check out what the other teachers have shared and created. 
       
   I am also joining up with Smedley’s Smorgasboard of Kindergarten for What’s Happening Wednesday! My Wednesday has been pretty remarkable. I spent the entire day with 3rd-5th-grade teachers learning about SRSD strategies. I may be the Core Coach presenting this summer to all these wonderful teachers, but they have taught me so much. I am looking forward to using a lot of their ideas in my classroom this year. I hope everyone else had a wonderful Wednesday, too! 

Hand Signals in the Classroom and a freebie

         Hand signals in the classroom have been floating around the Internet for years. I especially like Clutter Free Classroom’s and Littlest Learner’s hand signal signs. I changed them to fit my classroom and our needs. Students hold their hand up with a certain number of fingers to indicate what they need.

  • One is question
  • Two is answer
  • Three is pencil
  • Four is bathroom
  • Five is eraser
     I also use the sign language for yes and no to answer them when I am in a small group, which you can find here for no and here for yes. 
     Since I have a new obsession with zebra print, I had to create my own with zebra

       I hope you enjoy! Now, I know that not everyone loves zebra, so if you would like a non-zebra set e-mail me and I can create you a different set. I’m now off to finish my classroom, so I can finally show everyone pictures. 

Spray Paint and Duck Tape

                 When I first started teaching I bought items in a array of colors. After three years in a rainbow room I decided I wanted a color scheme. So I have spray painted, and spray painted, and spray painted. I found this awesome spray paint tool. It is a comfort spray grip that I picked at Wal-mart for like three dollars. It saves your finger, you’ll have less paint on your hands, and it sprays better.

    I’ve also been using the zebra print duct tape and I love it! I found some awesome pointers at the dollars store a few years ago, but now they aren’t so pretty. See below!

Before
Hot mess! 
After! 
     I love it! Even if your pointers are not worn out you can still use the cute printed duct tape to match your classroom theme.
