This is our "Rule Breaker" word wall.... I was trying to think of something other than the "jail theme" and I thought Mario would be memorable for the students! The students LOVE looking for new words to put up on our Rule Breaker Wall! Here is a .jpg file of the image (I use it on our spelling lists that may include rule breakers).
This is a poem I use EVERYDAY to help my babies differentiate between bs & ds. "Do you touch the bat first or the doorknob first?".... Usually that's all the prompting it takes to help them remember which way to correctly form their letter. ;)
This is a picture of our drawing rubric, our coloring rubric, and our Brownie Points board... Students receive a brownie for the tray every time we receive a compliment in the hallway or score a 4 in the cafeteria. Once we get our tray filled, I will bring in REAL brownies for us to share! =)
Here are our rotations for literacy and math centers and my classroom helpers.
Carpet area, calendar, SmartBoard, meeting area... ;)
One of my favorite things to use in our classroom.... Quincy Questioner, Clara Clarifier, Sammy Summarizer, & Paula Predictor... Our puppets help us remember to use those important comprehension strategies... I also have matching props that I wear during minilessons.... One day, I was dressed up as Quincy Questioner, with my black wig on, and a parent walked in... I don't know whether she was thrilled or terrified for her child!!!! ;)
This is the best thing I have done in a long time... I love the fact that my behavior system is now positive instead of always focusing on misbehaviors....
And last but not least, a few pics of my Book Barn inspired by Reagan Tunstall! =)
I hope you enjoyed your visit and I hope to share more in the near future!!! ;)
