I hate all the time that was wasted when students have to sharpen a pencil. Now, I just taped these labels onto two buckets, and the students simply trade for a new pencil when their pencil breaks.
I keep this free display outside my door and I let the students change out the strips whenever we leave the classroom. This helps anyone searching for our class to quickly identify how to locate us.
This system keeps me organized. Once I set up a procedure at the beginning of the year, the students keep up with absent work for their peers and I don't have to do anything with it. I consider this to be an essential tool in my classroom.
I love this freebie times a million. I reference them in almost every lesson. The sentence stems are easy for the students to use in conversations.
This bulletin board system keeps my writers' workshop running smoothly.
These nametags fit in the adhesive squares from the Target Dollar Spot. The way they are designed allows me to quickly make groups of 3, 4, and 5. There are instructions included with the product to make it work. This has transformed how I make groups in my classroom.
I am OBSESSED with these. I also cannot believe they are free. I love having a schedule displayed in my classroom so my students don't have to ask me what we're doing next.
