It's crunch time, my friends! August 17 is the earliest I can get into my classroom so I am trying to finish up all my classroom crafts so that I can get in there and tackle that room (more on that to come).
In my scramble to make all things cute, I appear to have developed a full blown addiction to ribbon signs/banners (do they have a name?). I'm no stranger to these, I used them in my room last year, but only for one or two things. Well, in the past two days, that's right, two days I have made four of these adorable signs. Don't worry, I have a space for each one, but I have to cut myself off here because I already have 2 in my storage cabinet at school to contend with as well.
I thought you might like to see each sign. Who knows, you might get inspired to make one or two....or four. Ha!
These are my new Whole Brain Teaching (WBT) Classroom Rules. I dabbled with WBT last year using some of the callbacks, or signals. I had a lot of success with them, so when I read more about WBT, I came across these rules and decided to give them a try. Then, I found these amazing posters from Run! Miss Nelson's Got the Camera. She has several colors available in her TpT shop, for free!! The only thing I added are the brown numbers on each rule.
TIP: Becca from Simply 2nd Resources recently pointed out in a post that Chris Biffle, the guru of WBT, has stated you should never pay for WBT resources on TpT.
My WBT callback/signal posters:
chevron signs were also free (remember, per Chris Biffle, you should never pay for WBT resources on TpT) from Stephanie at 3rd Grade Thoughts. The file contains several color choices (a little something for everyone!).
Good Listener Sign:
I always seem to get groups of students who have a difficult time listening; can any of you relate? So, when I stumbled upon this as I stalked TpT one day, I snatched a copy. It's a freebie from Christie at First Grade Fever.
While I might be addicted to ribbon signs, you have to admit they are stinkin' cute, and purposeful, and print rich (yes, I am trying to justify my addiction). Do you have any classroom decor addictions?
