Did It Really Work or Did It Just Look Good? Part 2

I thought I would surprise you all and post today:).  I am sorry for the lack of posting!  Since I am feeling just a little better everyday, I have discovered a backlog of things that need to be done (and yes, I made an absurdly compulsive list of everything that needs to be done).  Little things like mowing the lawn, serious cleaning, and changing bulletin boards have been taking up my spare time.  Not to mention that my after school hours have been filled with IEP, SIT, and Math Adoption Committee meetings.

Since today it looks like it is going to rain at any moment (and we NEED it) and edging the lawn does not seem like a good idea, I thought I would do a quick installment of Did It Really Work or Did It Just Look Good?
First up are my Read 180 Rotation signs!

Not the best picture, but it will have to do.  These are a HUGE success!  I use them everyday!  My kids check for their start position and we go from there!  The listed behavior expectations were invaluable for the first few weeks of rotations, and we revisit them from time to time.  These are available in my TPT store as a FREEBIE with the Classroom Expectation signs.

Next are my OCD Lesson Plan Templates!
These are used every week!  I love how they keep me in a routine.  At our school, lesson plans are checked weekly, and having this set up really helps me stay on top of them.  Right now these are hanging up on a clipboard under our weekly standards - for students, visitors, and administrators to see.
This week, they are five pages long.  I might have been a little stressed this week.  If you would like a copy of the template, just leave a comment and make sure you are not a "no reply" person.  This weekend, I will find the time to send you the template for you to play around with for your class.

Big Sale!
Before I go and read through some essays (and okay, watch NCIS on the DVR), don't forget to check out the big sale on TPT starting tomorrow!  It will be a Thursday and Friday sale!  All items in my store are 20% off, plus the TPT additional discount!

  7. I have been searching for what seems like a hundred years for a single page lesson plan template. Yours look like they would fit the bill. I would really appreciate if you would share.
    Thank you so much! :3
