FREEBIE #4...Weather

Have you ever wondered, when you give something away, if people are actually downloading the items?

I do.

I like to give my products away and often wonder if they are put to use...wouldn't you love to see your items in action?!?!  If you are out there and have an item I have created I would love to hear what you are using or just send pics!

Ok back to the freebie...yes we are on FREEBIE #4...WEATHER!

I have been asked by a lot of people where I got my weather chart...well you found the right place! Part of our curriculum is to teach weather to our students...this chart is a perfect way to help your class keep track of the weather day to day.  My students use this chart as a visual to help them fill out their weather graph.  I found this weather clipchart on Pinterest, but it was just a cache with no link. Gotta love PINTEREST! Soooo whomever created this lovely weather chart, I owe all my credit to you.  I have seen other versions of this on TPT as well.  Here is my version of the chart...

This is my bulletin board in my classroom...the calendar numbers I found at the dollar tree, chart is at my tpt store, and the days and months can also be found at my tpt store...

Hope you are still enjoying the summer weather!

I am continuing my week of on the pic to receive your free Student Information sheet...

You can use this sheet of paper on Meet the Teacher Night or Open House.  I keep the sheets and put them in my teacher binder.  There is a tab for Student Info...this is where I place these sheets, along with a few other things that are important.  They are easy to get to when you need to contact a parent or check to see how a child is getting home.  I will share a few pics from my helps me stay ORGANIZED!  This is an old pic, since then I have added the rest of the tabs to my planner.  Check it out here.

*Don't forget to take a tour of my classroom, link up if you want to share your room as well!

Classroom Tour 2013 and FREEBIE #2

It's official...SCHOOL STARTED and summer break has come to an end.

Anyone else start yet?

Take a tour of my classroom...hope you find some inspirations! I tool these pics on a cloudy day so I could not get the best of lighting to take these pics. I know I have found a lot of inspirations for my room from other teachers! Link up below to help give others ideas on how to set up your classroom and decoration inspirations.  I still need to add more to my classroom and obviously need to add my students' work...can't wait!

I have everything ready for Meet the Teacher night...students can order supplies ahead of time, which is why I have those large boxes on their tables
