Rejuvenate Your Room: Turning Over a New Leaf

This break has been SO needed, both personally and professionally. It's frustrating when I hear how "easy" it must be to be a teacher, because we all know that isn't true. We earned this break! As much as I needed this break for personal reasons, all of us teachers know this isn't a complete "break"--meaning, we still spend a lot of time thinking about our classroom, kiddos, and the like. This, my friends, is what makes us teachers---amazing teachers, at that!

Time to turn over a new leaf, my teacher pals! Thumbs up if you've been thinking about some classroom structures that need rejuvenation. Oh, you have? Me too! But, let's be honest--who really has time for a classroom upheaval mid-year? Not this girl! 

Since we teachers are helpers, my friends and I put our heads together to find a way to help fellow teachers during this mid-year slump. May I present to you, a classroom management makeover! These items will help you make an effortless, easy, seamless transition into the new year for you and your littles: 





Before you run and hide at the thought of classroom stuff, you HAVE to check out this pain-free and pocket-friendly solution!! I am so excited about this bundle because it includes new management techniques, behavior interventions, decor, forms, and all sorts of other organizational must haves!  It's only $10.99 and includes over 600 pages of items that can be quickly and easily implemented when you return to your classroom! I, personally, can't wait to get moving on these bad boys!

One of the things I feel have really helped to smooth my classroom routine is an attendance check-in binder. The kids sign in every day using a "password" or "question" that pertains to our unit of study. Every morning, once my students put their belongings away, they head to the back desk to pick up their Early Bird (morning work) and sign in. Sometimes, the sign-in requires a sight word to be copied next to their name. Other days, the sign-in requires a question to be answered; for example, "what is 2+7?" 

I LOVE this method, as it is an easy check-in method for me, since we log attendance every day via our computer system. This binder MUCH quicker than an oral role call and I love it! To account for human error, I also employ an "attendance helper" as one of my classroom jobs. I have a fantastic classroom job chart courtesy of Tale of 2 K Teachers that includes attendance helper. Following announcements, this student circulates around the table groups and reports back to me about any missing students. A quick cross-reference to the attendance binder lets me know who is not with us on any given day! Error proof and easy :) 




But this is just one product from the bundle.  There are 14 others!  Here's a quick peek, but you can surely click on an image to read about each one!









It's only for a limited time, so you won't want to miss out!  



I don't know about you all, but when I get this down time I really like to catch up on work things!  So much easier to do now when I can give up an hour here or there than staying an extra hour after work.  Not to mention the mental exhaustion!  

Here's to a smooth, stress-free transition and hoping you all enjoy the rest of your holiday!
