What a day!

What a day yesterday was!  I was planning to post a message last night but I went to bed EARLY!!! Yesterday started off by me taking my little guy to his pediatrician for a 9 month checkup (everything went super!) and then I went to my school to meet my new teaching partner for September (which is when I return to work too).  I decided that since I will be at school for most of the day, I would laminate some things that I need for September.  Everything started going well until we I left the laminator on unattended too long and burned the paper which caused it to stick to the rollers (oops!).  Thanks to another teacher it was fixed promptly.  The fire drill went off twice (and in my mind I kept thinking, oh God, please tell me it's not the laminator!  Ha ha! It wasn't!  Thank goodness!)  Well, I did all my laminating - yah! - and drove to pick up my kids at my mom's house ... until I was stopped by a police officer for making an improper left turn and got a big, fat ticket!  Ahhh!  Not such a good day!  So, that being said, today I stayed home and enjoyed the heat playing with the kids in the backyard! 

As I was laminating, I thought I would share some cute posters that I made last month which I plan on using at the Writing Centre.  The kids can refer to them while writing or drawing/labeling their pictures.  Hope you can use them!  Click on the link below to print and mount onto cardstock or poster paper.  You can laminate them, too, if you know how to use a laminator - not like me!!!

(Sorry - I don't know how to turn the picture so you can properly see it!)

***I uploaded all of these posters as a large ZIP file on TpT for FREE!  Click here to download your copy***












Happy teaching!

  9. Thank you for sharing. I love the idea of putting the word cards together on a chart so that there is always the connection between the topic and the words.

  26. Hi there, I have an updated ADOBE program and google account and can't seem to download any of the posters. I would love to download them. Could you please send them to smarie@shaw.ca ? Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I also tried to open these cute cards and it seems to default to wanting me to have a permission or a different google account. I can't get them to open under ADOBE. Any other suggestions?

  39. Just found you and love these! I would also like the Community Helpers words poster and Ocean words posters, but am experiencing the same access problems. The error message says, "Your current account does not have access to view this page. Click here to logout and change accounts". Sounds like only bloggers can access? They do not show up in google docs like the others. Thank you for these beautiful freebies!
