Free Flower Filing Cabinet Labels!

Have you digitized your paper files? What will you do with your now empty filing cabinet? I actually store construction paper and cardstock in mine!

Since I was making the flower labels for the drawers anyway, I threw together a freebie for you to enjoy if they will match whatever project you might be working on as well.

"Whoo" is Looking for a Classroom Freebie?

I have been working on some super cute classroom forms for everyone, all with a fun owl theme! Here are some free website login forms for you to use!

You could use these in a variety of ways:

1.  Print, fill out, and hang up near the computers for students to reference, or place in individual folders in their desk so they can grab when it is time to login.

2.  Print, fill out, and send home for students to be able to reference online materials from home with their own user names and passwords.  Parent letter is also included which explains that if they place the form in a sheet protector with magnets on the back (you provide to them), they will also have it handy and not lost.

Free Classroom Job Application for an Economy-Based Management System


When I first started teaching, I wanted a way to give my students a better understanding of how the world works, so I created an opportunity to infuse a little bit of economics into the classroom setting. The basic idea of the management system is that students each have a classroom job, earn classroom cash based on their job duties or for other contributions to our classroom society, and have the opportunity to spend their cash on things they want.

Just like in the real-world, the system includes different jobs with different pay structures: nine-week jobs and weekly jobs. Nine-week jobs require students to complete an application and interview for a position. They pay weekly for nine weeks and the salary is a great deal more than for the weekly jobs.

During the first week of school, I introduce the system and offer the students an opportunity to apply for a nine-week job. (I usually ask each student to find some way they can contribute to our classroom and encourage the students to apply for at least one job.) Then, I review each application and ask follow-up questions to determine which students are the best fit for each nine-week job. After the initial selections are made, I even do some on-the-job training with each student before setting them loose with their job responsibilities.

With their weekly earnings, students have the opportunity to make a purchase, a coupon for a reward of some type or a treasure box pick, or save them for later. After nine-weeks, I offer students another opportunity to apply for a nine-week job. As much as possible, I try to ensure each student get a nine-week job at least once during the school year.

First Year Teaching Advice Freebie!

Teacher Appreciation and First Year Advice for new teachers and veteran teachers alike! Stop by and grab a freebie as well!

Speaking of teaching being a difficult profession at times, I know personally for me, my first year was THE toughest!

As I was thinking about that year (which I did survive and which taught me so many valuable lessons), I posted a thread on Facebook that asked for advice you would give to a First Year Teacher.  There were almost 200 comments and all AMAZING pieces of advice!
