Ah Halloween week......... the week when you need a few extra tricks up your sleeve just to survive all the excitement those sweet kiddos are trying to contain because Halloween is almost here. Well, here are a few "tricks" I put together to keep your kiddos learning while you hopefully get a moment to breathe and preserve your sanity.  The following Freebies were created with Freebie from the Fabulous Krista Wallden over at The Creative Chalkboard.

Ghostly Graph Freebie

While putting together my First Grade October Math Stations pack I fell in love with these little guys from "The Creative Chalkboard".  

Once I uploaded my unit I decided I just couldn't be done with them just yet so I created a FREEBIE for you all.  Check out these Ghostly cuties in a graphing activity you can use a couple of different ways.  The NO PREP way.........

And the LITTLE PREP way but lots of fun for a pocket chart group activity or station.  This one has two different record sheets for differentiating instruction.  

The Common Core Goal is written in the top right 
hand corner.  

Happy Tuesday!

Classroom Management Made Easier and A Giveaway of Course

Classroom management is so much easier when your classroom is set up like a community and everyone helps out; this not only teaches students responsibility but it also allows the teacher to spend more time teaching and less time managing. Over the years I found that if each and every student had a classroom job it made my job a lot easier and the students took more ownership of their surroundings.  In my classroom I could guarantee that one of the first things I would hear on Monday morning was, "Mrs. Funk what is my job for the week?" Once we established each students job for the week all I had to do when I needed something  is say the job title and that student or students knew exactly what to do.  Classroom job training is part of the first few weeks of school, practice, practice, practice.  I always used a poster-board for my job chart but recently I found  clip art that was perfect for a new jobs chart so ......yep you guessed it a new jobs chart was born.  Well actually three because I have "One Thing Leads to Another Syndrome" and kept making new ones because I  Couldn't decide which one I liked best.  So now it's your turn.  Which one would you want in your classroom?  Leave a comment with your e-mail address and the color you like best and I will pick three winners.  You can also visit our Facebook page for a chance to win as well.  Oh, did I mention this pack is completely EDITABLE! Click on the picture to see a full description.

This pack is filled with jobs for everyone in your room and editable to the job descriptions you use in your classroom or you can use the ones provided. 

Tomorrow is Hump Day, Woot, Woot!
