Top 3 Pins for Back to MIDDLE School!

Teachers in my district go back in just 5 days and so you can imagine I am having to shift my summer brain back into gear!

I'll be teaching 6th grade ELA exclusively at a new school this year, so my pins are focused on Middle School!


This pin leads to a collaborative blog post from Created for Learning.  My favorite was the idea of planning your walls to add things in an organized manner as the year progresses.  I know I need a word wall, an essay word wall, space for other anchor charts and students work.  Now I just have to figure out where everything should go...


This is one thing with which I am definitely going to use to decorate my room!  I think they're great discussion starters and are very decorative without being too cutesy.


Unless I have to have the same syllabus as my new PLC, I am so going to use this one!  An infographic syllabus is almost too cool.

BONUS! There is a terrific giveaway going on at

The GRAND PRIZE is a Big Swag Bag full of goodies from Teachers Pay Teachers with Starbucks and Target gift cards!
