Deal of the Day: Wonders Focus Wall

One of my hottest products right now is my Wonders Focus Wall materials for 1st-5th grade. If your school uses the Wonders Reading Series this product has everything you need for an entire year for your reading focus wall. 

The posters are all in a bright quatrefoil pattern. Here's what my completed board looks like.

The types of posters included are Genre that come in two different versions.

Vocabulary strategy posters

Comprehension strategy and Comprehension skill posters

Phonics posters

Grammar posters

Spelling, vocabulary and high frequency word and essential question posters. Each of these have the unit and week number on the bottom corner for easy organization. (This was not included on the other posters because they are used in multiple units).

There are 4 versions of the header cards for you to choose to set your board up.

These skills, words, and strategies come straight from the Wonders program. The number of each of these posters vary based on the grade level. There is a poster for each skill you will teach using the Wonders program.  

For the next 24 hours you can grab this packet for half off making it only $4.40. This deal will end at 11:15 CST tomorrow. Click on the picture below to be taken to the 2nd grade version. From there in the description there are links to each grade level.

Whole Brain Teaching Freebie

Do you use Whole Brain Teaching? If so I have a freebie for you. I made a set of Whole Brain Teaching rule posters and to go along with them I created a year long set of calendars to go in my student's take home folders.

On the calendar at the bottom are our classroom rules. When a student has to clip down for breaking a rule they have to write the number of the rule they broke on the date so their parents know why they clipped down. I also included our behavior clip chart colors and what they mean. At the end of the day the students have to color the date to match what their clip is on.

I also have the matching behavior clip chart for you as a freebie too. To get all three of these like my page on facebook and click on the more tab and then fan freebies to download.

I also have the whole matching decor rainbow pack in my TPT shop if you want everything that matches. It includes ABC and number posters, center signs, voice level posters and more. In the packet some of the items are editable including the rule posters and behavior chart.

Happy Friday!!

Pinterest Pick 3

I am so excited to be a part of this month's Pinterest Pick 3! 

I am absolutly in LOVE with some Pinterest. My husband and our neighbor were just talking yesterday about how Pinterest is going to literally kill them with all of the projects we put on them. HeHeHe! I'm going to share 3 of my all time favorite pins for my house and show some after pictures of our completed project.

My laptop's home used to be on our kitchen bar. Not a lovely place. I decided I wanted a desk to store it but not just a simple table top desk. This is what I found:

I knew I would have so much fun decorating something like this so I showed my amazingly talented husband and in one weekend this is what he built me:

The next big idea I found was a bed. We had been using a bed frame that was broken and held together by a board for years. I saw a plan for a bed that looked like this:

And again in one weekend super husband built me this:

The third idea is one that I recently found and have shown my husband and he plans to start on it this summer. We already have a pond with some fish in our backyard. I want a path leading from our screened in porch around the pond to a sitting area in the yard.

I also want a pergola with these poles to hang flowers and lights on around the seating area. Hopefully in a few weeks I'll have an after picture to show of all these plans.
