Our Class is Not Complete Without You!

Thursday, August 30, 2012
Here I am at home trying to catch up on rest, but also I have been jotting down ideas and my brain has been working on overload.  I can't get into my classroom until Tuesday and the students arrive on Thursday!  Yeah, I know not a lot of time. 
 I have made list upon list as what needs to get done.  I will also recruit everyone I know to help out.  I am a College Advisor to my sorority and I know those ladies will be looking for community service and they also want recommendations for work.  So I guess everyone gets what they want in the end.
I am trying to develop a TpT store with mostly free items for classroom use. If you have an account please follow me and I will follow you too.  (Who knows maybe I already follow you!!)
  Here is a very cute craft, bulletin board, community/character builder.  The packet includes a parent letter, and a cutout of the project.  That is available in the TpT store
This was my experiment to see if a picture and a link would work.  Let's hope it does. (Fingers crossed) 
Friends and Followers, I want to thank you for being here with me as I begin this blogging journey.  I would like to be apart of your blogging world too.  If you are having a give away or a blogging milestone, please consider me to be a part of it with you. I know many bloggers connect together to make their giveaway even better!!

Communication with Parents-FREEBIE!!

Saturday, August 25, 2012
So I have taken a few pain pills, for my wrist, and I wanted to share with you this freebie, that I have on TpT.  I am working on another one but this wrist injury has me limited to my work. I would appreciate it if you could follow the TpT store, or share it with your friends. If you download the chart, please leave a quick comment. My friend and I are working on this operation together. I blog and keep up with Facebook like and she does the TpT.  

The parents of  the special needs students I have had need/like to know how things are going from morning to afternoon with their child.  Here is one behavior chart, I have used with a few students in my class. After creating the behavior chart, I am sure to inform the parent prior to starting the behavior chart about what the goal is for the chart.

For this particular chart I write the activity in (math, reading, centers, specials, etc.) and copy it for the week.  I give the student a double happy face for great behavior, a single happy face for acceptable behavior and a sad face for.... sad behavior.  If I am not the teacher for the period then I ask the teacher in the room to tell me the rating.  The icons you see at the top are also printed out for the student to have as a visual on their desk. 

This chart slips into a page protector and goes home to the parent for signature.  This chart is used in addition to a student chart in the classroom, this is just a quick way for the parent to know how their child did that particular day.


For my serious bloggers.  Does anyone want to take me on as a "student"?  How do I put the picture of the behavior chart on this posting?!?!?  How can I do all those fancy things to the blog also?  Some of them are so incredible and so pretty to look at.  :)   

Please help and spread the word about this blog. I am really trying to get use to it and make it more enjoyable to follow. 

I thank you for following me on this journey and hope to learn a lot from you.   What are some things that you would like to have shared on this blog?

I am sorry I have been away for so long, I have a partial stress fracture on my right wrist. :(  I need to get an MRI and the doctor told me that I need to limit my computer use and texting.  Talk about being in pain.  I have tried all different kinds of padding and building different things to help with pain at the computer, but it is really, really uncomfortable.

I want to thank you for following my blog and I hope that you can share my blog with your followers.  I want to try to reach 50 followers.  While I am not on the computer I am thinking and creating materials with the good old pencil and paper. 

What kinds of materials and ideas would you like to see on this blog?


My very FIRST follower!!!

I am soooooo happy to have my first  follower!!! THANK YOU TO  smittenwithfirst.blogspot.com.

You made my Monday!!

Think I will keep him!

My husband knows that school will start in a few weeks and he thought that he would brighten up my August Monday morning with a flower delivery.  Think I've been stressed? or think he is tired of helping me with class projects?

It's 10pm and I am now looking for a good blogger tutorial.  One that will show me how to add all the jazzy backgrounds, fonts, and photos.  Also want to learn and figure out how to "follow" people.
