Well...my summer is coming to an end. I go back to school bright and early on Thursday. I am NOT ready. I feel like I am behind already and we haven't even officially gone on the time clock! The thing I am going to miss most is my leisurely time spent reading my emails.....if you are a teacher that loves 'stuff', your emails are full of eye candy and things that can go on your wish list! I get a lot of inspiration from my emails.
So here are the things I rely on every year!!
I start off using this packet below every year during the first nine weeks of school..I just took the time this summer to 'freshen' it up and and make it pretty so that I could share it with you. It is definitely colorful and it is packed with information to help meet Common Core Standards L.2.1, L.2.2, L.3.1, and L.3.2.
Just click here to go check the packet out!
Laminating pouches are a must have also! I use the 3 mil <which is like your regular laminating film> if it is something I'm probably not going to reuse. However, if it is something I want to reuse over and over or reuse next year, a lot of times I will use the 5 mil laminating sheets which will not fold, bend, or crease! These are in my Amazon cart right now! If you don't have your own laminator, now is a great time to get one! I have had a laminator just like this Scotch brand for about 3 years now and it is still working great! Err...just don't forget to turn it off! It will burn up. True story. Enough said!
