"Give Me Five" - The Sequel

     My most popular post BY FAR is my post with the "Give Me Five" freebie. It's staggering to me that it has been downloaded on TPT over 80,000 times. How crazy is that?!? I was just watching a Whole Brain Teaching video and in the background, hanging on the board was the poster. It was so cool to see!
     I've had a lot of requests to add some other materials using the cute little clip art Give Me Five kids, and I've come up with something that I think will be useful when teaching the Give Me Five Routine.
I made an emergent reader to use for shared reading that explains the routine, a student coloring-book version of the book for the kids to complete and matching pocket chart cards. Using these materials to clearly present the routine will help the students fully understand the expectations. You can grab the pack at TPT by clicking on the picture. (Don't forget, the big back to school sale starts tomorrow and my whole store will be 20% off!)

I'll send a pack to the first few comments! (Don't forget to leave me your email.)

Class of 2027 Tags (Freebie)

Hi There!

A friend and I are heading to Nashville tomorrow for a week of cowboys and honky-tonks - yeehaw! I'm super excited and can't wait to have a blast. I thought that before I left I would post a quick freebie. I've gotten a ton of emails asking if I was going to update the "Class Of" tags that I've made the past couple of years, so here they are! There are both English and Spanish versions as well as a new, coloring book option. Grab a copy then print, cut and laminate and you'll have a cute little goodie for the kids on the first day. Just click the picture to download.

If you have any tips for Nashville, let me know with a comment.  Enjoy!
