I have been creating grade level checklist for the new COMMON CORE standards. I started with fourth grade and have been working backward from there. So far I have CCSS Language Arts and Math Checklist for grades 2-4 completed. Here is a sneak peek at my items:
I also have a FREE item up at my store too! It is a package of binder covers that teachers can use. I tried to create a variety of headings. GO AND CHECK IT OUT HERE!
Like I said, I have also spent a little time in my room this week. I mainly focused on taking down my old bulletin boards and replacing the butcher paper and borders to reflect my Mickey Mouse/Polka Dot theme. My main colors are BLACK, YELLOW, RED, and WHITE. I also rearranged my desks and hung my Mickey Mouse table numbers. I created those about 3 years ago. Here are a few before and after pictures of my work this week.
I've still got a long way to go! I am so glad I still have four weeks left of summer! One last thing I complete this week was my grade level hallway signs. I volunteers to make all three of them since I have a Cricut machine... and well I LOVE doing these kinds of things. The school wide theme this year is HOLLYWOOD or MOVIES, so I use some film border I already had and cut the letter from black cardstock.
