It's Back to School time! Open house is coming soon, therefore, I wanted to share with you two 'Welcome Sign In' Signs I created this year. The purpose of my sign is for parents and guardians to see it, feel welcome, and as a reminder for them to please sign in on the sign in sheet I will lay out. Below is a step-by-step guide on making a simple 'Welcome Sign'.
First, I found several supplies I wanted to use and gathered them together. I purchased
This year I was considering how to set up stations that may be fun and easy for me to place material in since I haven't worked with daily stations in many years! As I was considering how to do these and captivate interest, I decided to utilize my new 'math stations idea' and create " Colorful Captivating Station Bags". To create these great engaging station bags, I purchased colored bags, stickers, and glue. I labeled the station bags with a permanent marker based on the stickers I had and with positive encouragement. I then put several layers of glue over the stickers so they don't peel off easily and hopefully last longer.
To set up my stations, I have the bags set out with materials in each bag for the students. The materials relate to the concept being taught or reinforced. Each time the students complete the station, I'll take the materials out and put in another activity for students to do.

It's Back to School time again. Time for Professional Development, Meetings, Planning, Decorating, Open Houses, Establishing Procedures, Routines, and Gathering Supplies & Resources! Since there is so much involved with preparing for the start of the school year, I hope sharing with you some of my tasks I am currently working on or will be working on soon is beneficial to you.
First, I'll determine and write down an outline on my classroom procedures to review with students along with my classroom management policy. I will be utilizing and reviewing my classroom management Team Points Plan for the upcoming school year. I will also review school policy, codes, and more the first few weeks of school with students.
Secondly, I'll go through the teaching materials and tasks I already have at home to choose materials to start the year. Since, I have been asked to switch grades this year, I'll pull material for the prior school year of the students to review skills they should have learned last year and mastered. This will also give me an idea of their level of knowledge and skills.
Don't Stress the Last Few Months of School!
It is so hard NOT to get overwhelmed, especially the last month or so of school! Tutoring, Test Prep, Review, Reteaching, Lesson Planning, Grading....the list goes on and on! I always feel overwhelmed the last few months of school trying to "fit everything in" and with assessments. It is so hard not to feel overwhelmed especially with students taking standardized tests. I always want my students to do their best and remember everything I've taught them. This year, I'm doing my best to follow my own tips and ones shared with me over the years. Read below on some tips and resources I always try to remember.
Are pencils driving you crazy?
Students not having a pencil?
Losing them? Breaking the tip?
The pencil craze got to me too! It doesn't need to! During my student teaching we had cups with pencils at each group that we sharpened every morning and ensured there were plenty in each cup, which was great! That was in first grade. Over the years, I became use to about 2-3 students per class not having a pencil, therefore, I always purchased a box or two at a time and handed pencils out to those students. This year was a little different for me and the pencil craze got me! So many lost pencils, broken pencil tips, or students just didn't have a pencil. I felt pencil crazed! A solution must be found!!! After much thought I came up with my "Pencil Station"!
