Class Dojo Communication Log

Hey y'all!  Wow, I am embarrassed that I haven't posted since July 1!

I'd love to say I've been busy creating things and getting ready for the new school year.  HA!  I have been busy with other things that I'll tell you about later.  Today is the first day I've done anything school related.

Like many of you, I use Class Dojo in my classroom.  This is actually something I started in February of last year.  I needed to do something different and one of my coworkers had just started Class Dojo so I thought I'd give it a try.

It worked really well.  However, I never changed my communication log.

So, today I set out to make a new communication log.  Then I went to open it and it's done in Publisher...dun dun dun.  Shouldn't be a problem.  I have my work laptop here.  However, and this is sad sad sad...I didn't feel like getting up and taking {literally} three steps to get my work laptop.  I also didn't feel like switching out my flash drives.

SO, I made a new one in Powerpoint.  That way, if you want to use it, you can edit it!  Here are the font's I used {ALL are from Kevin and Amanda...LOVE!}:

Communication Log

Anyways, hopefully someone out there can use this!  Hope everyone is enjoying their summer :)

July Currently and a Fab Find

Hey y'all!  Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!  This is going to be a short and sweet post.  I'm trying to get it done before the Real Housewives of New Jersey comes on!

I'm linking up with Farley for her July Currently.

Have you been watching the coverage of the Olympic Trials?  Last night I got obsessed over the swimming trials.  Not necessarily the trials itself per se, but rather the set up of the pool.  Did you know they set the pool up in 8-10 days?  They have a 13 lane warm up pool as well.  AND they filled it up via fire truck!  Seriously, watch this video.  Amazing!

I just ordered my very first Erin Condren Life Planner.  I LOVE it (even if the picture won't rotate correctly!).

I LOVE The Lorax.  It's such a good story and puts taking care of the environment in a way my little 3rd graders really understand.  Plus, it's good to discuss the differences in the pictures.

I couldn't choose just one professional book.  I had to buy the book Improving Reading for one of my classes in grad school.  It has really good activities to help any kiddo that is struggling with reading.

I LOVE Dinah Zike's Foldable books!  I got this one this year and it is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.  It is split into section for things like ABC order, prefixes, dictionary skills, etc.  

Head on over and link up with Farley!

I'm also linking up with Elizabeth from Fun in Room 4B (It's her first linky so show some love).

I talked earlier about my Erin Condren Life Planner.  It's my first and I {LOVE} it!

I'm starting to fill it up!  I don't know why some of them are sideways.  I got the 16 month calendar so this will last me from July 2012 to December 2013.

Head on over and link up!
