Leanne Baur- New Member of ATUE!

Hi everyone!  I hope the school year is treating you well (if school is back in session for you).  Actually, my first day back was today and it was fantastic!  I am hoping it's not a honeymoon period and that the students are truly as well-behaved as they were today!  Do you know what made it go so well?  I had thoroughly planned out my day, stayed ahead with organization, and had copies paper clipped and ready to roll!  Sometimes being stress-free is EASY with a little extra effort!
Enough about my first day...I'm sure you want to know who I am.  I'm Leanne Baur from Leanne Baur's Creative Classroom .
This is me and yes, I love my Baltimore Orioles!
This is my blog!
I'd love to have you stop by and leave me a blog post comment!  I like to blog about classroom ideas, teaching ideas, contests, and life in general.  Since writing is a passion of mine, I feel that having a blog is the best way to do what I love!  I am a freelance writer for The Mailbox Magazine for teachers in my spare time.  
I also love teaching with all of my heart!  This year, I am a fifth grade teacher but in years past, I have taught every grade from Pre-K to grade 5.  I am currently teaching ELA and Social Studies. Just in case you were wondering where I'm from, I am a Maryland blogger who has been on TeachersPayTeachers since it first began!  Over the years I have learned so much about teaching, blogging, and collaborating!  I can't wait to collaborate with all of you through ATUE!
Well, no welcome is complete without a little FREEBIE or TWO, right?  I know we are all busy with the new school year starting so I thought I'd hook you up!  You can download the following resources for FREE through September 7th!
This one is my BEST SELLER on TpT!
This one is my NEWEST RESOURCE!
I hope you enjoy them!  The first one makes life so much easier during report card time. The second one is sure to impress your students, their parents, and your administrators.  It makes for such an adorable display in your classroom!
(Sorry for the glare...laminating material is SHINY!)

That's all for now!  I have some planning to do!  We are getting ready to read Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper.  You can grab a copy from Amazon below if you are interested in reading along with me!

Have you read it?  Comment if you have! 
 I hope to see you on my blog and social media pages soon! 


  1. I LOVE those sparkly cursive alphabet cards; thanks! I also enjoyed learning more about you - I'll be following your blog!

  2. Thank you so much, Deb! I appreciate it and can't wait to chat with you more! :)

  3. Welcome to ATUE! We teach in the same district, but I'm in 4th grade. Are you ready for all the changes? I'm not. I think 'chaos', and 'flexibility' will be the words of the year. Good luck!

  4. Welcome to ATUE! Go check out http://www.globalreadaloud.com/ because kids all of the world are going to read Out of Mind as a read a loud.

  5. I LOVE your common core alphabet! What a great idea to combine the typical cursive strip with testing terminology. Thanks for the freebie!

  6. Hi Lyn S! Which county are you in? Yes, the year looks to be chaotic but we'll somehow find a way to make it all work! :) Glad to hear from you on this blog!

  7. Kristy,

    Thanks for the heads up! I will head over there! What a great tip!

  8. Hi Amber,

    Thank you so much! They really do look nice on the wall! :) When you put it up, make sure to refer to it as you teach. I point to "justify" when I want my students to do that in their responses. I am glad you like the alphabet display!

  9. Examination and the standing confidence in print news coverage term paper writing. That is great. I think we require that sort of doubt to keep us legit and not excessively full


Thank you for your comment! We appreciate your input!
