Beginning of Year Forms and Poetry Folder Updated!

Hello Everyone!
First of all, thank you for all the sweet comments on my last post.  We are slowly but surely getting everything fixed and back together!!  Feeling blessed!!
Well, school starts in just 2 weeks! (Here in Texas, anyway) Some of you may have already started!  If you have, I hope you're off to a smooth start!! 
This is the time of year when I update all my old documents/printables. I've gotten several e-mails asking to update the Poetry folder student cover with this year's date, so I've got that ready for you! I also made some minor changes on my Beginning of the Year Quick Forms.  They have a cleaner look.  I now have those ready for you! Here are a few pics and then the links to the free downloads. Enjoy!!

I think I'm finally getting into "new school year" mode.  It has taken me a while this year.  Can't wait to go in tomorrow to meet a new team mate and get the cobwebs off the books!! Here we go!!! 
As always, thanks for stopping by for a peek. Don't forget to leave a comment.  If, for some reason, you are unable to download any of my documents, please e-mail me and I can send them to you via e-mail. Google docs is going through some transitions and I'm not always sure things are linked the way I want them.  Let me know! (
Till next time, have a great week!

  2. You are so kind to share your hard work for free. Thank you. I truly appreciate it! I have taught second grade for 9 years, but may be switching to first this year so I am in a panic to get ready! Your resources are so helpful.

  3. Thank you! I always do a poem of the week in my classroom, and some of these will be perfect. You are awesome to share these! :)

  5. thank you so much for sharing ! it is absolutely super helpful! keep on sharing!

  6. Thank you for your hard work and your willingness to share with others. You have some awesome units! I am new to first grade and am trying to figure out how to balance everything. Do you have a basal that you have to follow? Do your kids have a reading story each week?

  7. Thank you for sharing! Wonderful and just what I needed.
