Wow! What a difference a week makes! As you know, last week was like a semi-professional rodeo in my room. So, I rolled up my sleeves and in 4 short (ok long) days, we seemed to get it together.
Every year I make a "good morning" chart. I have always hand drawn them, but on Wednesday I broke this dude out and I got ohhhs and ahhhs!
But the cherry on the cake came today. I revealed this chart!
Before we organized their desks, some looked like a raccoon had taken up residency!
We reorganized our desks today and I am not kidding you when I say, I did not hear, "I can't find my __________" for the rest of the day. I almost cried tears of joy!
It is so easy to forget all of the small and large routines we teach. It takes awhile to build a class that runs itself. I suspect we have several more weeks towards that goal, but I can see it on the horizon!
I compiled all of my essential charts. I should have named the file,
Anchor Charts That Will Keep Your Teacher from Joining the Circus.
However, I just named them. "Let's Get Organized: Classroom Management Anchor Charts."
Here is what is included
They will be discounted through Sunday evening for my sweet followers!
