My Teacher Binders are Now Updated for the 2015-2016 School Year!

My Owl Teacher Binder has continued to be one of my best selling products, and I noticed over the past week, that it has started to sell again. So teachers must be starting to plan for the next year already! In preparation for these over prepared teachers, I have updated my teacher binders for the 2015-2016 school year! :) 

In my store I have 4 different teacher binders: a Owl Teacher Binder, a Cupcake Teacher Binder, a Crazy Penguin Teacher Binder, and lastly a Dancing Sheep Teacher Binder

Each binder includes: A Parent Questionnaire, Class List, Parent Communication Tracking Sheet, Behaviour Reflection Sheet, Assessment pages, Student Notes for Report Cards, Student Self Assessment Pages, To Do List, Notes Pages, Daily Schedule, Year Plan, Reading Groups Schedule, and April 2015- August 2016 Monthly Calendars. 

All of my teacher binders are completely editable, so will be easy for you to customize your binder to meet your needs. My teacher binders also come with a lifetime of updates. So you only need to purchase your teacher binder once and I will update the calendars each year.  

If you have purchased any of my teacher binders from previous years all you need to do is: 
1. Log into your TPT account.
2. Go to "My Purchases" and scroll down until you find your teacher binder 
3. Re download the updated copy of your teacher binder.

Paper Airplanes: A Fun Spring Activity!

It’s Spring time, so I wanted to share another fun Spring activity with my blog readers. 

This activity requires: 
-A variety of paper airplane templates
-A Pencil 

My paper airplane templates came from a website called Fun Paper Airplanes. This fun site includes free templates with directions for a variety of paper airplanes with fun names including: The arrow, the delta, the bullet, the dart, and the spade. In the picture below, you can see a few of the Fun Paper Airplanes that my students have made. 

The directions are easy to follow, but they do require some reading. When I did this activity I printed off 4 different airplane templates and had my students choose which one of the four that they wanted to make and then I put the class in small groups based on the planes they they choose, so that the students could work together to build their planes. 

After all of the airplanes were built, we all went outside to fly our airplanes in the field. We had a contest to see which paper airplanes flew the highest, longest distance, and which plane could stay flying the longest amount of time before landing on the ground. 

More ideas for your paper airplanes:

This would be a great sports day event or big/little buddy activity. Students could also decorate their planes before they build them. I also printed off extra airplane templates for students to take home.
