Clipart Challenge


Several fabulous clipartists and bloggers have come together for an amazing Clipart Challenge hosted by Primary Possibilities!  Each blogger is featuring a clipartist and a product they made using that artist's images!  This is a great way to discover new clipart creators for your summer creations.   So keep reading and following the linky at the bottom to head on to the next post!  You may even pick up some freebies along the way!

Hello ALL,
The SuperHERO Teacher here!  I was SO fortunate to be a part of this clipart challenge and even luckier to be paired with Susanna Westby of Whimsy Workshop Graphics! She was kind enough to let me use her "Flowers Clipart Mega Pack" for one of my products for the challenge.  With this fantastic set of clipart, I made "Weekly Motivational Posters" to help keep students inspired throughout the school year! Below is just a sample of the posters I created with her clipart:


These posters work well for essentially any grade level! Susanna's clipart makes the message even stronger since they are so visually stimulating! :) 

For the rest of my blog post, I would like to take the time to brag a bit about my new friend, Susanna!

Who is she, you ask?
- She teaches 1st and 2nd grade
- She majored in visual art and reading intervention 
- She teaches at the same school as her music-teacher-hubby (aw!!)
  
Here are some important links:

Who doesn't love FREEBIES?! Click the links below for some of her awesome freebies:

What about her TOP sellers on TpT?  Here's THREE! 


1.) No Prep Art History for Little Ones: This takes students through 100 pages of art history from cave art to modern art.  There is a teacher script to read aloud and an easy art lesson to go with each topic. There is also a grade 4-8 version with 7 more lessons and a teacher script aimed at older students!

2.) Back to School-- Top 18 Sight Word Centers Mega Bundle (170 Pages): This is a back to school mega-bundle of 18 individual centers for sight words.  It's 170 pages of printables, so each center is only about 50 cents each! 
This owl-themed bundle has 10 different activities for EACH of the 9 major holidays of the school year.  It's 135 pages of printables and independent centers.  Also available in smaller bundles! 

As you can see, my clipart challenge partner is a wonderful asset to ANY classroom and is extremely talented!  She deserves all of the applause for the product I made.  Stop by and visit her by clicking on any of the links above! :)

Okay, I admit it! I've been a SLACKER!!!

Okay, so I know we ALWAYS tell our students to stay motivated, to stay on task, and to be driven.... BUT I have been a major hypocrite!  LOL... I realize I have not posted any thrift store outfits for teachers lately, but I promise I will update regularly once school is out!  I'm done with school this Thursday and will have more time to dedicate to blogging.  Here's a little sneak preview of what I bought today!  Savers in Toledo, Ohio was having their card holder 50% off sale, so Ashleigh and I showed up before it even opened so we could get the best treasures!  

I spent $75 for $400 (at least) worth of clothes and shoes!  There are some things that I can't wear to school, but a lot of it I can!  I was SUPER excited! :)


Have a great week!  The end is near! :)

End of the Year Blog Hop and Giveaway!

The End is Approaching...

It is so hard to believe that my FIRST year of teaching is coming to an end.  It seems like just yesterday I was packing my things, moving to Ohio from Texas, and starting college at Bowling Green State.  This year, along with my student teaching, has been a tremendous learning experience and I have grown a ton as a teacher.  Not only have I learned what it is like to be an actual full time teacher, but I've also taken the time to build my teaching philosophy-- which I would love to share with you.  

What have I learned this year? 

CLASSROOM PHILOSOPHY: I teach at Penta Career Center in Perrysburg, Ohio.  It is basically a school in which students choose to attend based on a career trade they are interested in.  Contrary to what most may believe, I have incredibly bright students who are hard working and know where they want to go in life.  Because I teach at a career center, I've learned this year that my lessons are most effective when they include real world application and higher level thinking.  At the beginning of the school year, I focused primarily on the content of an American Literature course.  However, after having a variety of student-teacher conferences with each of my students, I learned that they need something more-- they need to learn how to be successful in life after high school.  With that being said, at the turn of the semester, I focused more on real world learning through the different novels and short stories we read.  It has been amazing to see how much the students truly appreciate it! 

 American Literature content + Real World Learning + Higher Level Engagement = A Well Rounded Student Prepared for College AND a Career

CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT:  Being 22, I was slightly worried that I would be looked at as a friend rather than an adult figure.  Luckily, I read Harry Wong's "The First Days of School" and created a classroom management plan that works like a charm for middle and high school students! I was thrilled with the results (I'll probably create a product at a later date with editable templates).  Right away, my students knew that I meant business.  I start off fairly strict and then loosen up as the school year progresses.  I can joke with my students (in a professional manner) while also keeping everything in check! 

BUILDING A RAPPORT:  In my opinion, building connections with your students is without a doubt the first task any teacher should accomplish.  I've found that if I can build a positive rapport with them from the beginning, the remainder of the school year will not only be trouble free, but enjoyable, too!  I now have students begging to eat lunch with me.  LOL  My students from last semester frequently leave me notes and come visit.  Teaching truly is the most rewarding job.  Yes, we may be looked down upon as a profession, but we know in our hearts WHY we became a teacher and we know that, regardless of what others say, we are making a huge difference in our students' lives.  :)  

What product am I donating to the AMAZING giveaway?







This is probably my favorite product that I have created.  I think it is extremely important that students set goals for the school year and for their future.  They can always say that they are going to do something, but writing it down gives them a sense of responsibility.  Basically, with this product, students will learn how to set SMART goals and they will create an ambition board using manila folders!  





The picture to the right is an example of a goal board I would create if I was still in high school.  I allow my students to use newspapers and magazines to decorate and personalize their manila folder.  Also, the product comes in a variety of colors so that it appeals to a variety of students.  You can find the product HERE
