Freebies + Editable Rules {FINALLY!}

After a busy day yesterday...the Whale Day Parade woke me up in the morning, then we went to breakfast with friends, walked to the beach for a swim and workout, went out for lunch and drinks, and finally walked over to check out the Whale Day activities...needless to say, I was exhausted today. So I decided I would stay in the house and work on some fun stuff for you! And I finally...finally....made my classroom rules editable!!! Hooray! It's only been, what, a year? Haha. Anyway, here are some of the goodies...

Classroom Rules {Editable}
This is my first time making an editable PDF file, so please let me know if you find any problems or have trouble using it. I tried it on a PC and Mac and it worked for me, but only in Adobe Reader/Acrobat. It does not display properly in Preview. Click the image to check it out.

Centers Rotation Board {Freebie}
I decided it was time to liven up my Centers Management Board with some color. I included two sets, one with icons and words, and one with icons only. There is also a set of signs for labeling your centers. Let me know if I forgot something! If I have clipart for it, I'll add it! And I'll post a picture as soon as I get back to school and add these to my chart.

Visual Direction Cards {Freebie}
I decided I'd also re-do my visual directions to match my polka dot theme. Just print, cut, laminate, and add magnet strips on back. These really help provide clear and simple directions for the kiddies, especially ELL students! Click below for the freebie:

Line Up Songs {Freebie}
And finally, I updated my "Line Up Songs" cards with some new graphics and a few additional songs I found. There are now 24 songs and chants! I use these when we line up to go to lunch, library, PE, etc. The line leader loves choosing a song on the card ring each time we line up and it's sooo helpful for getting the class to line up quietly.

Coming up soon...Common Core Mathematical Practice Posters, Measurement, and more!


  1. I am loving your blog. I mentioned using some of your literacy Valentine centers on my blog.
