I am so thankful for Monday Made It for keeping me motivated on my to do lists. This past week I finally printed my back to school to do list and realized that I have a lot to do and not a lot of time! So, needles to say, I have gotten in gear this weekend and I am linking up with Fourth Grade Frolics for Monday Made It to share my most recent projects!
Last summer I downloaded a set of bookmarks from The Brown Bag Teacher and created them for my kiddos. Last summer I made one per student. They lasted ALL year and the kiddos LOVED them! So, this year, I thought I would make them each two. I finished them up the other day. They are super easy to make and well worth the time!
I may still have three weeks before school starts, but I went ahead and prepped a couple of things for Meet the Teacher Night. I love having the extra little things ready before the craziness starts, or I won't end up doing them! So, here are my little treats I put on the desks on Meet the Teacher Night. I downloaded them last summer from Sliding Into Second Grade, printed them in black and white (to save a little on ink), and then I colored them.
I also updated my Meet the Teacher Night PowerPoint presentation. I downloaded this last year. I updated it slightly because I am planning on using the Remind App this year. I also added a few pictures from last year, to show some fun things that we do in third grade. I play this presentation repeatedly, while parents and students come in, meet me, unpack supplies, fill out forms, etc. You can also download this PowerPoint, HERE.
Last, but definitely not least, is my novel study for The One and Only Ivan. I L-O-V-E this book! I started this project early on this summer, but worked on it super slowly. I am so happy to say that it is finished and ready to use with your kiddos this fall! It is set up to be used as a guided reading novel study or as a read aloud, providing teachers with questions/prompts to use along the way. Click on the picture to head to my store and grab a copy. Your kiddos will love this sweet story.
