1) My top selling item is one that I am most excited about for this coming school year, my Whole Class Journals. Teaching writing can be daunting and a struggle, but these Whole Class Journals help the teacher cover all genres and help the students feel less pressure because of the more informal feel they have about them. I have 4 sets of Whole Class Journals that I have bundled together for you all for your Back to School needs! These Whole Class Journals cover: Personal/Imaginative Narrative, Persuasive Writing, Informational/Expository Writing and Compare and Contrast Writing. These are a great way to cover all genres of writing, build classroom community and use in your writers workshop or as part of your Daily 5. I have created sentence stems and some language patterns to help guide the students in a more direct way to help their writing be more specific. Check them out individually here: Personal/ Imaginative Narrative, Persuasive, Informational and Compare & Contrast or get the entire 4 journal set for a discounted price here.
My Classroom Economy Checkbook System is great for Upper Grade Classrooms. Having a solid classroom management system is essential for teaching, without this, the careful lessons and activities that we spend all night refining and creating, go out the window. In my classroom I use a three tiered behavior system that has rewards and consequences for the whole group, small groups and individuals. My Classroom Checkbooks is a great way to manage Individual Behavior. I have used it every year, no matter what grade level (4th-7th). The goal is that students will learn how to be autonomous, in charge of their own behavior, and make wise decisions. They also learn how to balance a checkbook, to be responsible and it reinforces math skills. Plus, kids LOVE this. Anything to do with them earning or losing money, BAM! They are instantly engaged and back on task! You can read more about this Classroom Management System here.
