Reading Response Sheets and Binder Covers

It's been a little while since I've posted, so I'm a bit behind on updating you on my newest TpT products!  I have been extremely busy lately.  I am slowly but surely putting things away in my new classroom, which has been a daunting task.  You don't realize how much you have accumulated until you have to move....and man, I have accumulated a lot in the last three years!  I can't help it.  I love good deals and buying books, and more books, and more books.  What makes things a bit harder is that I am moving into a classroom that is significantly smaller than the room I was in last year, so I have really had to scale back on some of my things!  It's actually been nice to sift through forgotten things and pitch some items I don't need. On top of my school move, I have been busy trying to find a new place to live.  I think I've finally figured that out.  The hubby and I will be moving next month.  I absolutely HATE moving, but it is well worth it!  I've also been working on some new TpT products, and I've been trying to read some new resource books/textbooks to get some new ideas for this coming year.  Did I say I've been busy?  So, here are some of the things I've been working on: 

 These are great for virtually any text!  You can use them for literature circle assessments, during reading workshops, etc...!

 If you've like my Owl Themed Classroom Set and Owl Themed Word Wall, I think you will adore this product.  It's a great way to stay organized (plus, it's just plain cute!).  This set is completely editable, so you can type in anything you'd like.  Check it out!! :)

If you're not into the owl theme, I made a set without the owls!

New Position and FREEBIE

I have some exciting news!  I interviewed for a new position, and I got the job!  Next year I will be teaching (drum roll, please).....FOURTH GRADE!!! I am really going to miss my colleagues and working with sixth graders, but I am so excited for my new teaching adventure.  I'm looking forward to expanding my experience in the middle grades and sharing new ideas with all of you.  

 Here is an adorable crayon monogram one of my sixth graders gave to me as an end of the school year gift.  I love it! <3

I went to my brother's graduation from The Ohio State University yesterday (Congrats, Tony!).  It was unbelievably hot out-I'm talking about three and a half hours in 90 degree weather!  I ran into Urban Meyer on the way into the stadium (see below).

Lastly, I wanted to post a FREEBIE to spread my happiness :)...I created an Owl Themed Classroom Jobs set.  Click below to snag it!
