When you walk in and look immediately to the right, the kids are asked to make their lunch choice.
I did my lunch choice a bit different last year, where I had a dry erase area that listed the choices. This year, I printed out the menu and placed on the door. The kids read it, then move their numbered popsicle stick to the appropriate magnetic bin.

I WON the missing part bin from another seller!
(If anybody recognizes this can you send me an email so I can give credit!)

I teach 3rd grade and wanted something I could keep my kids accountable for showing their work on math quizzes/tests and citing text evidence for reading.
Every time my kids show all their work in Math or find text evidence on all reading questions, they can put a sticker on the star and will move up the levels as they fill up the card!
I will pay them for moving up a level so they can spend in our class store.

My Theme board is a new addition this year!
I made cards for the main themes in literature and placed them on the board.
As we read books throughout the year, we will generate a theme for the book and place in the appropriate spot.
I am using these dry erase sentence strips for the board!
They are AMAZING and I LOVE that I can re-use them!
As a class, we will write out a more detailed theme since a them is more than just one word.
We have been writing them on sticky notes and will place next to the book!

    Do you have a list you work from to choose the books to read for theme? I used to have one and can't find it.
