Focus Wall for Texas Treasures

I use this focus wall every day. It is for me, not my kids. It helps me remember what I want to focus on for the week. I think if anyone has ADD, it is me! I glance at it every time I have that little thought, "What's next?" My buddy Mikell always asks me to be sure and send it to her because it keeps her focused too. I am putting it on TPT for anyone who is teaching Texas Treasures. It truly saves my life! If you're a groovy grandma like me, you do tend to get forgetful!

How to ACE a Test!

I made this test packet for a friend at my school. Her name is Melissa Chappell. She is trying to get enough money to adopt a baby. So we collaborated together and came up with this! I love the lucky penny idea :) 
It includes: 
10 test taking strategy poster.
 Cards that are for a get up and move activity
A positive sign for the door
A note to send home to parents 
A lucky penny
Cards to place students picture on so that when they walk through the door
 they see themselves in a positive way
Defend your answer (scratch paper)
Good Luck Testing from Melissa and The Groovy Grandma!
