Classroom Management Freebies and a New DIY!




Before I get to all the freebies
I want to share, here is my
latest DIY...

I present to you...


The Safari Cart!
(Picture coming up!)


I've had this old, boring cart
for years. The students use
it to get milk from the lunchroom.

Now, there wasn't anything wrong
with it...it gets the job done...
BUT...
it doesn't match my color scheme
...so I knew I had to fix it!




I used two cans of white Krylon 
Fusion spray paint, a tiny bit of
black Krylon spray paint, white
and black acrylic paint, (to fix over 
sprays and paint the zebra stripes) 
and spray Mod Podge.




And one little mess later...






Now on to the free stuff!
I have shared some of these on 
here before, but I have quite a few
new followers and a new freebie, 
and it is...

Back to School Time!!!

We can never have too many
management tools in our belt,
so I hope you find these useful!

Now, I bet you were thinking
from the title that this post
was going to be about
dressing for school?

Nope!
I love to dress the part, as much 
as I have can, when I read stories
 to the students.


Here is Fancy Nancy reading 
one of her stories to her friends.



I didn't have a picture of 
The Cat in the Hat 
(either of them)
reading so I included
the whole class picture.




This one is just plain, old me....
with a skunk on my head....
reading The Easter Bunny's Assistant.




Here is a teacher from
long ago with her students
in a one room school house.
I (I mean, she) read from
an old school primer.




Just a little 50th day of school fun!




Grinchy!




Wacky Tacky Day!
Tacky the Penguin




This one isn't me,
though it's my costume.
I just can't put that 
head on mine...

(claustrophobia)





Last one I can find 
in my pictures!




Do you dress up? 
I'd love to know how!



Quick Tip!

Set your laminator on the edge
of the table facing a chair!
Saves a step when you are laminating
a bunch! The pages pile up nicely on
the chair and you don't have to pick it
up and move it to put the next laminating
sheet in!

I posted about story souvenirs on 
Facebook and there was interest,
so I thought I'd share what
they are, in case you haven't heard
of them, and how I give them!

Story souvenirs are little items
that relate to a story that students 
get to keep in a souvenir box until the
end of the year.  If you choose to start
this, students WILL ask you if they can
please take it home...each and every time...
each and every student...no matter how
many times you say no...
until the yucky teeth...those go home!




Penguin eraser



Here's the yucky teeth


Place story souvenirs in a gift bag.
I use craft bags.

Product Details


Read a fiction and nonfiction book 
of your choice to introduce a new 
theme you are studying.

Have students guess what story 
souvenir is in the bag.  I like to draw it 
out a little...adds to the suspense! 
  
I have students keep them at school 
until the end of the year in their 
“story souvenir box” (pencil box).  
They love going back, looking through 
them and remembering the stories!  
Students can fill out a sheet to take 
home and share with their families.

I've given story souvenirs for quite a
few years.  I recently started a Pinterest
board that you can see here.  It shows 
some of my fiction and nonfiction pairs
with a story souvenir.  I plan to add
the rest of them to the board this year, 
after I've taken the pictures!

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday  Freebie Friday

I created a sheet for students to 
complete about their souvenir.
Get it free here!





*I don't buy all of them myself.
I ask for parents to sign up
to donate some of them.
