Classroom Behavior Calendars

Summer is slowly coming to a close for me.  
August 1 marks the being of the new school year for me.
No, I don't start back on the first but I do have to start thinking about what my classroom is going to be like for the year.
This year, I plan on stepping up my game on classroom management.
I struggle with this each year.
This year, I plan on using my behavior calendars again.

Sometimes I don't need all the bells and whistles with being able to edit.
So, I usually use my free version of these in my classroom.
Super easy to just print and go.
I staple them in the front of my students' take home folder.
Parents are to check them each night and discuss their child's behavior.

Hope you find these helpful and that you are still enjoying your summer!
I'm off to enjoy a day with my kids and grandson:)

Spreading Kindness = A Giveaway


Oh how I LOVE Maria Dismondy's books!  I have a few and I'm purchasing 2 more today.  When I found out she had a new book being released I immediately asked if I could review it.  And she said YES!


I just read this book to my first graders on Friday.  Of course they were excited because I had a signed copy and they received bookmarks.  Before I read it to tell I told them Maria really wanted to know what we thought of her new book.  As I read it students would whisper to each other that they really liked this book.  They were even more excited when I told them I had a couple of her other books too.   So guess what I have ready for next week:)

Showing kindness seems like a simple thing to do.  And in truth it should be very easy, however, it isn't for kids and adults alike.  I try every hard to teach my first graders to be kind and share.  Some days we do a really good job and others we have to work on it harder.  We as adult have this same struggle.  We can learn a lot from a good picture book.

Click here to check out Maria's books on Amazon.  If you don't have them all check them out.

How would you like a chance to win a new copy of Maria's book?  She has been so sweet to allow me to host a giveaway for a copy.
Just enter below and Good Luck!!
