MMI #1: READ Letters.
I've seen these on several blogs and different Pinterest pins and just had to make a set for my room. I just happened to be in Hobby Lobby for their 50% off sale on scrapbook papers and cardboard letters so the time was right. Today I attached the letters to ribbon and am going to hang them on the wall in my room library. I'll be putting up pictures of my new library once I have it all put back together so you can see how it came together.
This year I decided to try something a little different. I typically keep my schedules, calendar, notes and other important teacher information in a large binder. Its bulky and I don't like to haul it plus my laptop to meetings. So I've been working on my teacher binder off and on for the last few weeks. I recently found out I can have a spiral bound notebook made for $3.50. I can customize it to what I need (think I need) and organized how I want it. I do my lesson plans on the computer so I don't need a section for lesson plans. (I am going to use planbook.com this year-but that's for another post.) I have a spot of a week at a glance-I laminated it so I can use it over again rather than have 36 different pages, a calendar (which I have already plugged the important school dates), a note section for meetings, and my roster. I am also putting in a section for my substitute information with procedures but that section is still in the process as I team teach I want to hold off to be able to talk with my teaching partner before I finalize it all. I am super pleased with the sections I have done and can't wait to get it all finished up and bound.
MMI #3: ELA I Can StatementsMy third MMI for this week is my set of I Can statements for English Language Arts. I am super tickled with how these turned out. For each standard I used a different colored edge to help make them easy to organize. Next I need to get them laminated and they will be ready for my new bulletin board.
Well, that's it for right now. I have a few other projects I want to wrap up for next time. Two more Mondays before we officially start back.
Until next time...
