Interactive Read Aloud Lessons for second grade are finally in the works!  I wanted to get comfortable being back in second grade again, as well as find a way to share these in a way that would be more beneficial to you and your students.  We have to follow a curriculum guide at our school, which doesn't necessarily match what you are required to do at your school, so I found a solution that will hopefully work best. I will be releasing each IRA by the focus standard.  Each week has a focus standard that is practiced throughout the week.  Of course, you will be hitting other standards through the questioning during the actual read aloud.   I will not be bundling the resources at this time.  However, I will put each set on sale for at least 24 hours after posting, so be sure to follow me on Instagram and follow my TPT shop HERE .  Just click FOLLOW and you will receive an e-mail from Teachers Pay Teachers when something new is posted. First up is Balloons Over ...
My students absolutely LOVE my  Classroom Management Games !  I reached out to you all to find out what behaviors do you want to work on in October and November. You gave me so many great ideas, so I included three extra games in this resource. These games target specific behaviors while positively reinforcing students meeting your expectations.  The games are played as a whole group and end with some sort of reward.  The goal is for your students to correct the behavior and move from extrinsic motivation to intrinsic.  We know that our little ones often times need something to work towards at first, so these games do just that. I print the games on cardstock and laminate them.  I use Velcro dots to attach the game pieces to the game boards. Let's take a look at each of the games for October and November. Your focus behavior for this game will be having students helping you or helping others throughout the day, which also includes taking care of and cle...
My students absolutely LOVE these Classroom Management Games !  I thought back to the beginning of the year and made a list of some of the most common behaviors that students need help with at the start of school.  It's usually fairly consistent from year to year.  These games target those behaviors while positively reinforcing students meeting your expectations.  These games are played as a whole group and end with some sort of reward. I print the games on cardstock and laminate them.  I use Velcro dots to attach the game pieces to the game boards.  The first game focuses on blurting out.  This one is a difficult one at first for students, because they have been at home all summer and aren't as used to waiting to speak or raising their hand.  I used the game of BUMP to work on the blurting issue.  When students blurt out, the teacher gets to add a game piece to the board.  When a student raises their hand or waits their turn to speak, that student gets to ad...
For the past three years, I have had a farmhouse classroom theme .  The look was very rustic, so I have decided to do something a little different.  I wanted to update and modernize the farmhouse look, so I decided to design a Modern Farmhouse Classroom Decor resource.  I still love my classic farmhouse, but like I said, I was just ready for something new.  This set includes lots of modern patterns and tile with plants mixed in.  You have the option of including the plants in your decor or not including them.  I realize plants aren't everyone's thing.  Let's take a look at what is included! This post contains some affiliate links. I am using white shiplap paper for my bulletin board backgrounds.  The Simply Stylish Tile Straight Border is from Carson Dellosa.  It matches the background of some of the pieces almost perfectly!  I have had a few questions about my white shelf .  It's from Target and the desk is from Wayfair . I include lots of p...
