Daily 5 and Cafe- Good fit books and Stamina

I am so impressed with the creativity teachers have!!! I've been searching on Pinterest and teacher blogs for the perfect set of Daily 5 posters to match my western theme. I've found several inspirations,but it just didn't match the mental picture of what I wanted them to turn out like.But WOW...are some people going ALL OUT on things to go with the Daily 5...which makes me that much more excited about implementing it!

When I do a theme, I like to go all out.
My principal walked in the other day when I was putting up my bulletin board material and was admiring my theme! (It fits her perfectly too since she is a former barrel racer from what I hear!)
Anyway, I joked with her about the possibility of me getting a class pet, to which she said, " Sure, what are you thinking of getting?"
"A steer!" .....the look on her face was priceless!
She didn't miss a beat and said, " Sure, it'll teach the kids responsibility !"
Love her!
ANYWHO, I decided there were a few anchor posters I was going to have to create on my own!
I found a CUTE poster about good fit books (using the acronym clever is that?) on pinterest, and when I clicked on the link it took me to Amanda over at One Extra Degree-- LOVE her blog! She had been inspired by Christina Bainbridge at Bunting, Books and Bainbridge!!! I added my own fonts and borders, changed a few things around and inserted my own clipart to customize it to fit my classroom! So now, I have my Stamina and Good Fit Book posters!!!
Feeling like I'm making a bit of progress here...things are slowly coming off my checklist!!!


  1. Oh I sooo need these posters. Love them! Do you have them available on Teachers Pay Teachers???

    1. If you will email me, I will send them to you. I don't have anything on TPT because I just don't have the time!! Plus I'm offering them free!! My email is:
