B2S Books

Click here to link up:

I switched grade levels last year and I had I some of the same students moving up with me.  I had to come up with new B2S Read Alouds and projects for fourth grade.  I hate when you plan a lesson and you hear the dreaded statement, "We did that last year!"  Here are some of the books that I use:

Teacher Week: Freebie Friday and Blogiversary

I have two freebies to share with you!  
One for Teacher Week and One for My One Year Blogiversary!
I love this anchor chart and wanted to make it for my classroom. 

Here is what I came up with.  I printed and laminated the signs.  I then mounted them on black and stapled on a foam board from the Dollar Tree. My daughter crocheted chains for me.   I plan on making more charts as I teach the Strategies for Comprehension.

It is hard to believe that I have been blogging for one whole year.  This experience has made me reflect on my teaching and I have been inspired by so many others.  I am looking forward to another successful year!
Here is my other freebie for you!  I wanted to do this Pinterest activity on the first day of school(I know many of you already started), so I created some headings to use.  I printed mine out on colored card stock, laminated them and now I will have them for next year!  I included one for my grade level and one that is generic.
