I’m chugging along on this blogging train, trying to get back on track! I had this post on my to-do list at least 3 weeks ago but clearly I am riding the struggle bus instead of the blogging train. 😉
This binder cover is pretty simple, but our student info binders make collecting and keeping all of that beginning of the year stuff so much easier! As a *bonus* you really need to check out my sweet friend The Brainy Zebra and her FREE student info sheet!
This is one of my very early Writer’s Workshop lessons. I made it two pages so that my students had plenty of room to illustrate and label whatever they needed. We glue it down side by side on the first couple of pages in our Writer’s Notebooks and come back to it all year long!
I know you might be thinking, “Why would she have them write down a bunch of things they detest?? People, that page is a gold mine during opinion writing lessons!
This might be my most favorite freebie. The minute I started using these, my stress level during student work time decreased immediately! My support teachers and I could immediately see where we needed to focus our energy, who to keep an eye on, and who was ready to go.
I hope at least one of these makes your year a little better! See you soon!
