Behavior Plan Freebies and a new Giveaway

Hi everyone! Right now, I'm working on my behavior plan for the upcoming year. I liked the one I did last year, which you can find here, but I want to make a new one for this year. I'm keeping the idea the same, just making new pages, which I will upload as freebies as soon as I finish them :) I've had a few emails asking for ones that could be used for other grades, so I will make ones that say "kindergarten' or "second grade" instead of first. I've also had emails saying the behavior plan can't be downloaded from Scribd. I'm not sure what's up with that, but I'll fix it! Look for the freebies within the next few days!

Now for the exciting part of the post! I'm teaming up again with Learning Resources to offer another fabulous product that I know y'all will love as much as I do. It's the Easi Speak USB Recorder and this little product is just as neat as the HearALL recorder.
This is perfect for practicing fluency and the kids will love talking into the microphone. How perfect would this be if you had a rockstar theme classroom? I'm thinking of making a rockstar themed center for this device. There's just so much you can do with this product and it easy to use! It plugs right into the computer so you can hear the recording:
I feel like this will be a favorite in my classroom. Now don't y'all want one? Here's how to enter!
*Follow Life In First Grade and share how you would use the Easi-Speak USB Recorder in your classroom. Just comment below and leave email!
*Follow Learning Resources on Facebook and say Life in First Grade sent you
*Follow Learning Resources on Twitter 
*Follow Learning Resources on Pinterest
*Follow Learning Resources on YouTube
***BONUS: for 2 more entries, blog about this giveaway! Be sure to leave the link to your blog post in the comments section
And don't forget to add your email in case you are the lucky winner! The winner will be drawn Friday(7/13)! :

  31. What a great giveaway! Since I am only teaching writing to my curious firsties this year, I would use it to have my firsties read their writing pieces. Then, they would be able to hear the story they have written and choose to add, delete, or change. :)
    Fingers crossed!

    P.S. You're room is looking great! I was really unsure about the wall color when you first posted pictures, but the bright colors you're using really makes it look great!! I can't wait to see it when you're finished. I'm also really jealous that you get to work in your classroom over summer break! We aren't allowed to even enter the school!

  55. This would be wonderful to use for fluency work and self-assessment. I could use it for accountability while students are working independently. Children's readings could be added to our Listen to Reading station; I think that would be wonderfully motivating. I could use this constantly in my classroom.
