Five for Fraturday~ January 7

Long time, no post! This being a second year media specialist is time consuming let me tell you. I'm going to do a quick review of what has been going on lately by linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching. Warning: it will not all be from this week!
Last year I blogged about wanting to create a Seuss Christmas tree in the library. I found several pins on Pinterest for inspiration. Here is my Seuss tree. I love the way it turned out! I bought ornaments, ribbon, and the tree last year after Christmas at a deep discount. Then I used illustrations from a book that had to be taken out of circulation due to spine failure. All in all, the most expensive thing there is the licensed Dr. Seuss hat. We stacked Dr. Seuss books under the tree and put bows on top.The kiddos loved the tree! (And there was a run on Dr. Seuss books!!)
Our school system closed school two hours early in anticipation of the winter weather headed our way.  We were all dreaming of a snow day! Something along the lines of this:
We actually got this.....
only less.  There were some seriously disappointed children at my house!
I absolutely L.O.V.E. a good deal. I found this in blue at my local Marshall's store for less than $100. Yep, it came home with me for Christmas. :)

This is my latest creation in my TpT store.I just finished printing and laminating this for use in my own media center. I'll let you know how it goes!

The unit includes black and white and color options for labeling the nonfiction section of your library. Then you have 3 different options of skills sheets to choose from. Are you short on copies? No problem! Choose from one of the half sheet options, or make one class set, laminate, and use Expo markers. That makes your one set reusable! This set can be used as an introductory lesson, practice, or as an assessment; it's your choice! You could use the full sheet with third grade, one with fourth, and the last with fifth. Students would get the practice each year with the same format, but the questions would be different.

You get a closer look in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. Happy planning!
My Tigers are headed back to the College Football National Championship game against Alabama. Here's hoping for another fantastic playoff game! #GoTigers #AllWin
