I want to very much THANK you all for taking the time to join up, but also for ALL the wonderful comments you have been leaving, which are encouraging when I most need encouragement! As the year goes on, I will most likely only have time to post on the weekends. I am part of way too many committees, which take up some of my afternoons - PLUS, my daughter will begin soccer next week, as well!
Just as a little thank you, here are a few items:
I have seen other Book Hospital posters, but they did not fit on the container I wanted to use that needed to also house bigger books.
We have a classroom group behavior goal, where I begin at the bottom of our door and add an owl (or themed cut out) each time we catch the entire class doing the right thing. When it reaches the top (where this sign is displayed), they will receive a class reward. We have done freezer pops, cupcakes, ice cream, etc.
My old digraph charts were in rough condition, so I made some newer posters that will be displayed for their reference when trying to sound out words with digraphs.
I am realizing I may have a talkative group, so I made this simple voice level chart. While I am talking there will be NO talking. They may whisper during center time work, and have normal voices when working on group projects.
