I am OBSESSED right now! I always knew I had a font fetish, but recently, I found the cutest frames, borders, and backgrounds to use in the curriculum and materials that I create! How is it that I'm just now figuring this out??? I've seen products with all that great stuff, but I never really thought too much about how they got there. I just typed in my debit card number and downloaded my copy. But now that I know where and how to get them, I can't stop creating!
Here are two items that I created a couple of days ago, with a little background to go along with them... I HATE keeping up with reading logs. I mean really, REALLY hate it. As a teacher, what am I looking for? A book title with a parent signature next to it that says you read for 20 minutes each night? What's the purpose in that? Yes, I realize that reading every night is important (I even have a cute chart that breaks down the total minutes per year vs. a student who doesn't do the reading). But if it's not quality reading, what's the point?
And here's a dirty little secret...sometimes I sign my own kids reading logs when they haven't even read! I know! Sacrilege! Please don't turn me in!!!
So anyway...I decided to create a reading log that will actually hold my students accountable for analyzing what they've read each night. Each bundle contains 36 weeks of thought-starters or questions - one for each week of the school year. (I tried to fit them to one or two pages to save the baby trees!) The logs prompt higher order thinking in a multitude of ways. Download your copy for FREE to see just what I mean! Choose the Grades 2-3 logs, or the Grades 4-5 logs, or BOTH!
