ClassroomTheme, Communication Binder, Ladybug Theme Packet Freebie and Another Award...

I will be doing a Western Theme in my classroom this school year, as I stated in my very first post.  I have been busy creating some theme printables and trying to decide which Communication Binder acronym to use.  I created a S.H.E.R.I.F.F (Students Have Everything Ready in Fabulous First-Grade) Book, and started the W.E.S.T.E.R.N. (Weekly & Everyday Skills To Easily Review Notes), and there is still the H.O.R.S.E. (Happy and Organized Ready Students Everyday) and the R.O.D.E.O. (Really Organized Details Everyday & Ongoing) Books.  I will make one of each and which ever one I like the best will be the one I use.  I also made a M.O.N.K.E.Y. Book, in honor of my old theme.  (I am finding it so hard to let go of my Monkey/Jungle theme.)  These printables are powerpoint documents and are editable so you can type whatever information you need in each. I have uploaded the S.H.E.R.I.F.F & M.O.N.K.E.Y. Book Covers to my TN store:
 

I will also be creating other theme packets.  The first theme packet that I have created is a Ladybug Theme.  This is also in my TN store as a freebie:
