Writer's Folder
I have found that it helps students so much to have a special place to keep their writing!  Then they always know where to look for their cutest writing projects.  (Well - most will ;))
Writing Folders are also a great aid in helping your students take responsibility for their writing and organizing it.  
Additionally, I love to look through their writing, 
so I have them turn them into me occasionally.

Writing our weekly goals down has been a game-changer in my classroom!
They love checking off those goals - some weeks I give them stickers to put there. 
(Everything goes better with stickers!)
Primary Flourish
I have my students fill this in on Mondays, 
so they can see what their goals are for the week.
Some Writing Goals Suggestions:
> Powerful Sentences
> Journal Entries
> Respond to Literature
> Current Paragraph Goal

I have this Writer's Folder 
for you as a Freebie!

Get Your Day Started with Peace & 

Self-Directed Students!

I found myself frustrated with the way our school day started out.  I thought I had explained clearly to my students what they were to do first thing in the morning.  I had lunch count and attendance to do, kids were constantly interrupting me with, "What do I do now?"
Projecting a slide every morning totally transformed our mornings!
Students were now self-directed and took responsibility for what they needed to do.

If you have a LCD projector and Powerpoint on your computer you may want to give this a try.
All of the text boxes are editable - so you can add what you like each day!

End-of-Year Class Book

Some of Our Favorite Things About You!
I just starting doing this 'Some of Our Favorite Things About You
booklet with my class a few years ago - 
and it quickly became one of our favorite activities!   
It created such a sweet, positive way to end the year!  
Who wouldn't love to get a book filled with all your friends' compliments 
on what they appreciate about you?!
A treasure for each student - and an engaging activity 
to capture their attention in the last days of school.
And what a great way to send them into summer - and life - 
looking for the positive in others!
