Read to Self Raffle

More Daily 5 Fun! While reading, I thought it might be nice to motivate my students to Read to Self by doing a monthly Read to Self Raffle. As students are "caught" reading to self correctly, they will be given a Read to Self Raffle Ticket. Each month I plan to "raffle" off....BOOKS!  I plan to make a BIG DEAL out of these tickets, as well as the RAFFLE. I will probably purchase some seasonal or high interest books from Scholastic to keep it fresh all year. Enjoy this FREEBIE by clicking on the picture below!

You know you're a teacher when...

So you know you're a teacher when you anxiously await for the mail to arrive because you're so exicted about your new planner. I decided to take the plunge and order and Erin Condren planner. Based off first appearances, I love it! I have tried making my own and doing a teacher binder. It was bad, but it was great either because of durability purposes. Erin Condren's planner appears VERY durable! Time will tell. A before picture now, and an after picture at the end of the year!

Monthly Baby Chalkboard Photos

Confession: This is not a school product, but I also have to create products for my son too. I saw those cute chalk board posters on Pinterest, and so wanted to make one for my son each month. But my handwriting just isn't that cute. So I decided to make a digital version instead. This way I can use cute fonts and I don't have to rely on my handwriting. I plan to make one each month and then bind them together to have a digital baby book. This product also gave life to an ETSY shop!!!! So I now have a Teachers Pay Teachers shop as well as an ETSY shop. Yay!!!! You can check out my monthly baby boy photos by clicking the link below. A girl version will be available soon!
