Monday Made it and FREEBIES

Have you read any of Julia Cook’s books? She is one of my favorite authors. Two of my biggest pet peeves are when children blurt out and tattle. You should check out A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue and My Mouth is a Volcano. Both are excellent books that seem to really engage and educate children. If you have the books then I created some sheets that respond to the story. Click here to download.

I am also quite proud of all the fun freebies I've found in blog land. I have printed tons of goodies, laminated, and hot glued them to the walls. The hot glue gun is my best friend these days!!! All of these are freebies I've found online. Be sure to click on their name and it will take you right to the free download.

Thanks Randi
Thanks Ginger!
Thanks Marianne
Thanks Kristen
I also purchased the Target book covers. All I can say is AMAZING. My students love having a little spot for books or  unfinished work.  I also love the little white baskets for storing their writing journals.

  9. Your room looks so inviting. I like the book covers on the back of the chairs! I attached folders with velcro. They work pretty well, but I can't put a book in them. I'm going to try this idea!
