Monday Made It- BTS Style and TPT Sale Style


"I love when August starts," said NO teacher ever. 
Sadly, August has come and that means the summer is ending. This is my last week of summer. I will be spending it in my classroom, because I'm a teacher and that's just what we do. 

I spent one day in my room last week. I only managed to get one bulletin board done. I really like how it came out. I used a neon green plastic tablecloth from the dollar store.
This is my reading strategy wall. 
I used my *best selling* Reading Comprehension Posters. This is my Bright Edition. I also have a Chalkboard Edition. 
I have A LOT planned for my room. Come back next week to see the premier of it!

This is another one of my best sellers. This is an AR/Reading Counts Clip Chart. This is the BEST way to manage your students' points AND motivate even the most reluctant reader. 
I had a student come to me last year. He couldn't read. Yet, he wanted to move his clip up the chart SOOO badly. He started to read and even got help from friends. Then he would go on and take quiz after quiz. Before he knew it, he was able to move his clip again and again!
This is my Bright Edition Clip Chart. I also have a Chalkboard Edition. 
I've included the choice of having the chart with OR without clip art. I did this for the older kiddos.

Enjoy your week everyone and remember to smile.


  1. Mary! Your Meme poster is so funny! It cracks me up! I Need to move into my new classroom! I'm not aloud in until this week. Today is out since I will be in Jacksonville for my son's swearing in ceremony before heading off to Marine Corps boot camp! Tomorrow I start the process! Your bulletin board looks fabulous by the way! Enjoy your last week of vacation!


  2. Isn't the "getting ready" process SLLLLOW? I changed out some of my paper for fabric, made a mess, and left when I went in last week! I'll have to do better from this point forward! Everything for you is looking good!

  3. Your bulletin board looks great. I love how bright it is. I love the Ryan Reynolds quote pics too!
