Tropical Classroom Decor

If the warmer weather and blooming flowers weren’t enough to make me miss the tropical beaches of Mexico, this classroom décor set does the trick!  I am in LOVE with the colors that this watercolor tropical décor set has.  I knew it was going to be a pretty set, but as I worked on it the colors started blending even better than I had hoped.  Shades of pink, green, orange, and yellow will bring pops of color to your classroom!


Kick off the set with this colorful banner.  The “Welcome” is pulled out for easy printing. All of the pieces are included for you to mix and match with words, letters, or blank.  There is a complete set of letters with this pretty font as well!


If you want to add a little different flair to your classroom, check out these triangular pennants.  Each one comes with the version seen above AND a version with a white circle in the middle for letters.  Use these as decoration, locker tags, bin labels and more. Again, these are FULLY editable.


Did I mention how much I LOVE the colors?!  Chose one or both of the alphabet card sets to bring more color and beach vibes into your classroom.


Label EVERYTHING!  Set includes name plates in every style with each clip art (9 different styles!).  The smaller labels are great for lockers, smaller desks, classroom libraries, bins, baskets, hall passes; endless possibilities.  I have allowed you the freedom to change the size of these smaller labels to meet all of your needs!  Again, they come in all colors and styles!


Table numbers are a must for some classroom teachers.  Hang these on the end of a lantern hanging from the ceiling or put them on a basket for the desks.  I have included blank circles if you have specific table names or want to use them in other ways around your room.



Included in the pack is a calendar with 6 options of styles for the months and 2 options of styles for the number cards.


So many other elements are added in this set to really allow your to customize your classroom.  Everything comes with a power point slide to allow you to add words, letters and your style!

Perimeter Task Cards

I am VERY excited to be introducing my first curriculum based item to Teachers Pay Teachers!  Between starting a new job in a new grade and moving the same week, I am finally getting into the groove in my classroom. We have been making things happen in our classroom and I am excited for you to come along for the ride.


These task cards come in handy when you need more activities for stations or in your small group.  My group of students are extremely good at solving the algorithm, but are struggling with stamina and solving word problems.  We started working with area and perimeter this week and they had a blast! We even got to go outside and measure the perimeter of our raised garden beds (more to come!). They did, however, struggle with the word problems!  I am not sure if it was because it was the Friday before a three day weekend or what, but I knew we needed more practice with this standard.  So here it is! There is a good mix of word problems and pictures included.  When I taught this lesson, I had the students draw a picture and filled in information as they read the question.


file_000I am extremely happy with how much more practice my students will have in the coming weeks with these task cards. The packet comes with task cards and recording sheets.  I have included an answer key.  When I want students to have instant feedback on their progress, I will post the answer key for them to self-check.  It speeds up my small group placement for the next day!  I teach my math blocks with guided math, so my other students will continue to work with these in one of my stations.

Print and laminate the cards.  I like to store mine in plastic bags that I can label and stock easily.  When I am using them in stations, I put them in pencil pouches in the bucket for each station (more to come).
