I know...It's been a while...I've missed you too!!! :)

CAN YOU TELL SCHOOL HAS STARTED?
OMG! I CAN!
( Baggy eyes, not tired...EXHAUSTED!, sore shoulder from carrying that 
Teacher bag LOADED with papers to correct, lesson plans to make, or things 
I am supposed to look at BEFORE the staff meeting...which was YESTERDAY!)
BUT...I have had MORE HUGS in the last week than over the ENTIRE SUMMER!
I do Love my kiddos!
So here we go!

We started our READING GOALS CLIP CHART..staring with goal setting..
(available in my TPT store)
And then...
WE BEGAN!
Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Reading, Reading Comprehension, Reading Strategies...etc, etc, etc
(Did I mention I now have 6 laptops that my 28 FIRSTIES are to be on 20-30 minutes DAILY?)
AND THEY CANNOT LOG IN BY THEMSELVES!!! 
SO...Every 30 minutes I have to have an "independent activity" so I can "SWITCH" the
students in our "TECH CENTER"... I Hope this part gets easier as we go!

Back to READING... SO...to help my kiddos out I have a FREEBIE  for YOU!
The same goals from the CLIP CHART are now on individual BOOKMARKS!
They are two sided ( don't cut down the middle) &
 I ran them on FLORESCENT cardstock!
Who doesn't like HOT PINK BOOKMARKS!
The boys like the SLIME GREEN!
So here is yours for FREE!!!
Enjoy! Happy Saturday!  I think I'll go back to bed...or a nap...or BOTH! :)
