WBT Rules and Posters FREEBIE

Greetings again, Wibbeteers! I've been enjoying my morning by watching the latest Webcast on the First Hour of WBT!!

Next, I revamped my rules posters to make them a little more CAMPY!

As stated in an earlier post, I rewrote the rules to fit my classroom and style. They rhyme and fit into our 3 rules:
Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible.

I've Been Busy!

I'm so excited to share with you all the things I got done in my classroom today!

First off, I have been in love with a pin about using Sterlite drawers to organize by the week...

I'm Sooooo excited! I'm putting weekly materials for phonics and Bible. My reading and ss/sc units are already organized by themes. Woo Hoo!

Next, I started on more organization.
I printed out all my pins and hole-punched them to put into a if I just had a cute cover for it!

TADA again...

If you'd love your own copy, it's in my TpT store for...

Last of all, I was on a roll and decided to update my plan book:

Then I went all out and made more covers and labels!

My Super Improvers' Wall is Up!

I am SO excited! I've got my Super Improvers' Wall up and ready to go for next school year.

I've been seeing some really cute themes applied to the walls and had a creative block for a while trying to come up with something to go with my camping theme. But, here it is...and I LOVE it!

As you can see, I will be using tents for my name cards. I spent over an hour punching out 24 tents in 10 colors~
but aren't they adorable?

As for my levels, I decided to go for a road trip kind of theme. Novice campers are not going to jump right in, they have to get their toes wet first! Sooooo...

1. White-picnic
2. Gray-campfire
3. Tan-Greenway hike (local park)
4. Yellow-backyard camping
5. Orange-Harrison Bay State Park (20 min. away)
6. Green-Cherokee National Forest
7. Lt. Blue-Great Smoky Mtns. National Park
8. Blue-Grand Canyon National Park
9. Red-Yosemite National Park
10. Black-Yellowstone National Park (the 1st National Park!)

I plan on creating a map with each destination on it. I'll even throw in some facts about each location. I'm getting excited about it!

Now, I've already had a forum post about the SIW...but for those of you that are NOT Wibbeteers, I'll give a brief explanation.

The Super Improvers' Wall is a motivating behavioral modification tool! It rewards students for making improvements in ANY area (yes, ANY!). If little Johnny finally gets his desk cleared off-give him a star. If Susie does not complain for a whole day-give her a star. Any improvements you see and want your kiddos to be proud about-give a star for it.

When a student gets 10 stars on their card, they get to move up to the next color level! (Hey, is that it? No stickers or treasure box???) Exactly!

I have never used the SIW, but have seen marvelous posts by other Whole Brain Teachers that say it is pure teacher HEAVEN!
Problem students magically become motivated to earn those stars and move up the levels!

My fear~
consistently giving out those stars! I have to really be on my toes.
Anyone else have a SIW and want to share?
