Sale! Everything is on sale!!

Happy SNOW day again!!  We have been a little snowed in here so I thought I would throw a sale and bring a little brightness to the day!  Enjoy!  Click the link below!  EVERYTHING IN MY TPT IS ON SALE!!!!

Leadership Binders

We are in our first year as a Leader in Me school and it has been a great learning experience!!  I have created a Leadership Binder (Data Notebook) set of printables for my own students and I figured I would love to share them with you if you were interested.  Data tracking can be overwhelming and time consuming.  Believe me I have thought about dropping it a few times but I come back to it because the research stands behind it clear and strong.

I just keep thinking that I will adapt and adapt until I get it perfect for my students and for me.  After thinking about this I wanted to make sure that my documents that I offered to you were also  customizable to you and your students.  Due to this I went back and made sure that my TPT Data Notebook files were editable for you to personalize.

I would love to know how you are using these in your classroom and how data tracking is going for you!

For the love of teaching...have a great night

  • Higher Order Thinking questions
What doesn't work...or what I need help with

  • best way to teach reading so that everyone is accounted for

Any suggestions!
