Thanks Donors Choose!

Our much needed rug was funded by Donors Choose!!!  I am so grateful and excited.  My students were literally screaming and clapping as they saw the custodians carrying the rug down the hallway.  I can't wait to start using it tomorrow.  Below are a couple pictures of the rug.  Please disregard my unlabeled but finally sorted yellow library baskets LOL!

Getting Ready For A Sub

Does it take you a long time to get ready for a substitute teacher?  If so I have a new product on TpT that might help you!  Print my substitute teacher cover on bright paper and staple it to emergency work packets.  Always have work on hand for those unexpected days off.

I created this cover sheet because when I have to take off, the substitute teacher would not check the students work or the work wasn't done to the same standard as when I am there.  I was getting parents asking me questions when I returned.  I found myself writing lots of notes explaining that I was out and the students had a substitute teacher.  To save myself from writing the same note over and over again I created this cover sheet to go on my substitute work packets.  I have no longer received questions about the quality of work that was done when I was gone because the parents already knew I was out.

It also solved the problem of the substitute teachers not marking how their day was in their agenda.  It's a win win for me and the parents really like the cover sheet.  Get your copy here for only $1.00!
