Reading Is My Jam (A reading journal like no other)

Keep reading...
student centered

I feel like each school year I go in with a goal to build my readers UP! Whether they are voracious readers or readers that aren't too sure that they really are readers. Isn't that what we all want? 
To lift up and build our readers?


I really can never contain my excitement but this has been a little project/brainchild of mine for the past few months that I've gotten to work on in-between moving and unpacking boxes. When I was in school I kept a notebook of quotes I loved, authors I couldn't get enough of, and thanks to one of my favorite teachers ever I kept track of all the pages I read. I adored this notebook.

((made by a reader))

Chalk full of quotes about reading/books/libraries and unique pages for students to record and journal in...with a little bit...okay...a lot of flair and fun! 

Over 15 journal pages are included and 15 quotes to keep readers inspired throughout the entire school year.

UNPUTDOWNABLE. YUP. Because those books exist. What would be on your list? 
Mine would definitely include Wonder, The Wild Robot, and The One and Only Ivan. 

Sprinkled throughout the journal you can put in fun quotes that students can tailor to their tastes but doodling our making them colorful...also there are black and bold prints included.

In love with the dinosaur...because dinosaurs are awesome!

Anyways! I'm so excited to get this in the hands of so many teachers and readers. You can find this in my TPT shop.

Get your read on!

Over and out!

Shelfies and Snapshots Update

I added some SHELFIES and SNAPSHOTS to my product this past week. There are TEN book shelfies, hashtag snapshots, and now a few picture books shelfies. Coming soon are genre shelfies too. I've had thiiiiiiisssssss much fun adding shelfies and snapshots this summer

I have loved getting requests and adding to this!

I am a **little** bit stoked about this setup--scratch that SUPER OUT OF THIS WORLD EXCITED about this setup and the shelfies--talk about the ultimate accountability. 

Have you caught any of the tutorials for printing posters at office max for about 3 dollars? 

Click on this link and then scroll to "blueprints" and I printed an 24x36 poster and it came out beautifully! Be sure to click the fit to size box! Always look for a discount code too.

As you read picture books students write in the titles and authors. There are 20 books for shooting for a goal of reading a picture book a day.

Also added as a request was a genre shelfie for my fellow upper elementary and middle school friends!

I AM SO SO SO excited about this!

Talk about the coolest way to document your reading
I love that each student can make their shelfies reflect their reading!

If you already own this be sure to download the update under "my purchases on tpt. And if not, what are you waiting for? It's perfect if you love celebrating reading all year!

Here's a link to check out!

Hope y'all are gearing up for another great year!

Over and out!

Thinking Up! Growth Mindset Quotes!

Ah! I am so excited about this! I feel like there are a lot of people in the #keepthequote club...and I am one of them. It's gotta be a teachery thing too. We just love quotes.

I've always been inspired by words that are put together to have the most profound meaning AND using them in my classroom but I've always wanted to do MORE than just keep the quote...I want my students to apply and analyze the quote and make it come to life.

So here is Thinking Up! 10 awesome quotes with 10 unique reflection pages. Each quote is made so students can add their own flair and personality to it. Like each quote, the reflection sheets are totally tailored to each quote. 

AND since we are all about growth mindset the quotes follow themes of staying motivated, persevering, trying, not letting failure get to ya, and taking chances.

I think these are the perfect pick me up for students and teachers--and not to mention the discussions that each quote can lead to--endless possibilities.

Included are bold and black and white versions--just for you--and me! Because I love a bold black and white quote...on astrobrights ;)

Take a peek below at all of the quotes.

And here are the reflection sheets!

Ah! I can't wait to grow with this during the school year! You can find these in my tpt shop!
And be sure to click the green star--it's the best way to stay in the loop!

Best of luck prepping for the best school year ever!
