Keep it up!!!

Are your walls concrete?
Have trouble sticking things to them?

You need to try E-Z UP Clips!!
I wish I was getting paid to promote these but I'm not.
I've been using these for 20 years and I have no complaints.  They will keep items up until you take them down!! They are reusable so you only need a few boxes.

If you like the monsters click the pic to order from her TpT store.

 You slide the clips on what you want to put up and then push them onto the wall and Wahla!

Monsters Galore in Room #4

I bought the pom poms from Hobby Lobby.  All three colors were in one package but you can also buy packs of one color.  They also have purple, orange, yellow, black, polka dot and I'm sure more!  They are easy to make by yourself too by googling directions but I was being lazy!!

I hot glued craft foam pieces, pipe cleaners, pom poms and paper to make monster faces.  What fun!  I loved making these guys!  They are so cute. 

Last year I had my first grade students paint these monsters with crayon resistance. I saved them over the summer and added them to my board.  I'm moving up a grade so when they come on Back to School night they will get to see their monsters on the wall. My daughter, Abby, hung this all up for me.  What a big helper.

Boys and Girls Bathroom Passes - Monster Themes

Do you have kids asking to go to the bathroom all the time!  I do! 

I don't have a formal rule for the bathroom. 
I like to let them go when they need to go but not during teaching time. 
However, I don't like getting interrupted all the time. 
So... I made these hand sanitizers into monster boys and girls. 
I used foam sheets and a pom pom for the nose. I used a hot glue gun and tied the ribbon around the top.  They turned out so cute.
I'm going to have the students put this on their desk when they need to go to the bathroom. 
This means only one person can go to the bathroom at a time and no one needs to interrupt me
to ask to go to the bathroom.

Monster Theme - Whole Brain Teaching Rule Poster Freebie

If you haven't started using Whole Brain Teaching in your classroom - this is the year!

Starting with the classroom rules is the best way to start.  I've been integrating Whole Brain Teaching for a few years and I started with the rules and added more in as I was feeling more confident.
Click on logo to go to the website.  Everything on his site is free.
I'm doing a monster theme this year so of course I had to make new rule posters.  
Here are 2 of them.  Click on them to download them for free for Google Docs.

Back-to-School Fright from the Black Lagoon

Do you love the Teacher from the Black Lagoon books?
I do and so do my students.

I started reading the chapter books that Mike Thaler wrote.  These are short books and won't take too long to read.  I read multiple chapters at a time.
I'm going to read Back-to-School Fright the first week of school this year.

Click book to go to Amazon
It's such a funny story about Herbie who really doesn't want to come back to school.  I bet a few kids can make some great connections to this book so I've included a worksheet for them to write about it.
Check out the other pages for this Literature Companion.  Click on the worksheet.
Included are pages for vocabulary, writing, text connections, idioms, story elements and reading responses.  I hope it's helpful to the beginning of your year.
Have a great start to your year.  I get to get into my classroom for the first time this summer on Monday!  Wish me luck!
