LAST Day Of Our Dollar Days Sale

Today is the second (and LAST) day of our Dollar Days Sale and The Lesson Cloud!

As promised, I'm offering a FREEBIE each day of the sale. 
Here is today's freebie

A fun little certificate to reward students who have been reading!
I'll be giving my students this reading certificate each time that they fill up a Reading Motivation Chart (yesterday's freebie). My students love going home with a little certificate to show their parents how well they are doing in school! A nice reward that doesn't cost anything but a little ink ;)

You can see which of my TPT items are on sale HERE 
and you can get a list of all sale items at the Lesson Cloud HERE.
Don't forget to enter our giveaway while you are shopping!

Happy shopping,

Good luck to all and happy shopping!

I've decided to offer everyone a freebie each day of the Dollar Days Sale!!
Here is today's FREEBIE
I use these Reading Motivation Charts in my classroom all the time. I put them on a bulletin board with students' names on top. Students put a sticker in a square every time they finish reading a book. It's just a fun way to encourage my kiddies to take responsibility for their reading and to keep track of how many books they've read.
When they fill up a chart, I usually give them a small prize and they get to choose a new chart.

I hope you enjoy this freebie,

Behavior Calendars Plan & An Updated FREEBIE

Wanna know how I keep my students' behavior on track? I've been using a calendar system for 3 years now and I absolutely love it! It's really easy to use and parents seem to really appreciate it.

Like my writing portfolio, I decided that my behavior calendars needed a little make over.

This is my students' duo-tang from last year:

And this is the new one:

I changed all my calendars (don't have pictures of the old ones but these new ones are way better!)
I also made some goal setting sheets and 2 different behavior codes lists (one with numbers and one with letters).

In this pack you'll find detailed instructions on how to set up the calendars and student duo-tangs.

This is what it looks like when it's all set up in a classroom (thanks Isabelle for the pic!):

Click on a flower to get this pack at the store of your choice ;)


I've been asked to make my "Wait Your Turn" pencils for a larger class so here they are. 
I made them with numbers 1-30. 
Click on the picture to download them for FREE :)

Later gators,

I call it "Swinging Through A New Year!".

I made some writing prompts to go with it. (Students will be attaching their prompt behind the swing seat)
Here are some of the writing prompts:

This pack also comes with the title for your bulletin board! All you have to do is print on colored paper, cut it out, and laminate ;)

My Swinging Craft is available in both my stores.
