Fun Bright Chalkboard Reading Strategy Posters {& a FREEBIE!}

Hey! Hope everyone is enjoying lots of summertime fun! Between trips to the pool, mowing the grass & tackling projects on my "summer to-do list", I have also been sneaking in a lil computer time {even tho I promised my kiddos that I wouldn't be working on my computer as much this summer! Sshhh.....I've been fitting in my techy time after they are in bed!} There have been soooo many things that I have wanted to do OR redo for my classroom. These reading strategy posters have been on my list for an entire year! Yep! you heard it...a YEAR! I got the ADORBS clipart from Melonheadz & combined it with my newest obsession-CHALKBOARD-mixed in a some bright colors and Voila'!

This set also includes an "I Can.." poster with the common core standard for kindergarten, first & second grade. I have started including Common Core "I can..." posters in all of my products {& I'm getting close to finishing up an entire set of "I Can.." Mini Posters {first grade edition}that can be easily displayed/posted in the classroom.

I also created lil matching bookmarks for my firsties to keep at their desks. If you would like to grab this FREEBIE, just click on the pic below to download from my lil TpT shop! Hope you love it!

Oh, how I love summer time! No alarms (except the kids and the dog and the phone....) well, no alarm clocks anyway! Today was a super summer day here...90 degrees plus! So I decided to take my kiddos to the pool. It's so funny when students see a teacher outside of the school walls, they look at you really weird! You know what I'm talkin' about? It's like you shouldn't be allowed to leave school or something! Well, that's exactly what I experienced today. As soon as I walked into the pool, I heard..."WHAT are YOU doing here???" One little girl even asked me if I ever got to leave school??? Too stinkin' cute!
I am also spending time this summer working on some new products and FREEBIES. I'm super excited about them & will be posting them very soon! 
Happy summer y'all!
