Just a quick post this Sunday! I wanted to share a few items that I’ve been busy creating for my classroom. All of these items are new additions to my TPT store. The best thing is that everything in this post is absolutely FREE!
The first set of free items are my EEEK and IPICK Posters. This year is my first year doing the Daily 5 and I need a set of these posters to get me going. In this set I’ve included posters in a variety of polka dot colors. I’ve also included an IPICK poster which also goes along with the Daily 5. Click on the picture above to get this freebie or click here. Make sure to leave a comment after you download! I’d love to hear your feedback on this product.
The other freebie that I just added to my store is my Classroom Computer Rules Posters. I just created these today. I am going to print these out today and laminate them so that they can go in my computer area. This product has the rules already on them, but I’ve included a blank sheet so that you can add your own rules. There is also a separate sheet to list websites that the kids are allowed to visit. Grab this freebie by clicking on the picture above or by clicking here. Again, please leave me a nice comment if you download!
Before leaving, I’d like to tell all of my teacher friends who are starting their first week back to have a blessed school year! And for all of my spiritual friends out there…I borrowed this quote and made a graphic for it.
(If you know who came up with this, please let me know so that I can provide proper credit.)
Happy Tuesday folks! I’m dedicating this post to my re-purposed/refurbished teacher-student toolbox. I wanted to create one of the nice teacher toolboxes that are floating around the internet. The only difference is that I already had something in mind to use and I wanted it to be something that my students could use too.
Don’t you just love a good sale? I know I do! Teachers Pay Teachers is throwing a huge back to school sale, and I just had to join in.
Visit my TpT store here to get 28% off every single item in my store. The sale runs today and tomorrow!
In other news, I’ve created so many new products as I have been preparing my own classroom. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the items I’m currently creating.
There’s lots more that I’ve created. I hope to start adding some of these items this week. My beloved jump drive where I stored some of my new products decided to die on me, so I’m having to re-create a lot of things unfortunately.
Tomorrow starts my first Monday with my firsties. Our first day was Wednesday last week. I have 24 kiddies in my room and we are busting at the seams! There’s talk of us getting a new teacher in first grade, but we’ll see about that! I’m off to make more things for my classroom!
If you follow me on Instagram you have seen that I am busy working in my classroom. The above picture is the disaster that I’ve been working with for the past few weeks. Last night, I finally finished my classroom and I have a few pictures to share.
Finally, I have my math and ELA word walls on the left and right. The middle will be where I display my students’ work.
Hope you enjoyed these pictures. I plan on doing a full preview of my classroom when everything is done. My kiddies start on Wednesday so I have a few more things to make, print, cut out, and laminate! Tomorrow I plan on posting a Monday Made It on my teacher tool box.
Oh yes, I’m doing two posts in a day! I finally went back to my classroom today. I haven’t been all summer (oops)! To add to that, I’m moving down the hall. So, I have plenty to do. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that I have nothing done yet. I’m getting to it slowly but surely, y’all.
Today, I’m linking up with Farley for her monthly Currently.
Listening: I love the show Chopped on the Food Network! It’s so intense! My little toes is out talking it though. He has learned how to scream…much to my dismay lol
Loving: Walking into my classroom today gave me lots of inspiration. I’m ready to tackle some no-sew curtains and a teacher toolbox. Additionally, I have some ideas for new products to create.
Thinking: So I ate breakfast this morning, but got caught up working in my classroom and missed lunch. What am I gonna eat?
Wanting: Yea so SaintsMan works too late for my taste but…hey!
Needing: I always feel like I have to do this! One pile of clothes goes down and another one builds. I think there are little gremlins or something finding clothes for me to constantly wash.
Must Haves: I always have some kind of welcome treat for my kids (I won’t insert my shameless product plug here, *cough cough*). The first week of school always exhausts me because summer is so laid back and lazy. I’m making myself go to bed earlier so that I can get into the groove. A smile is a must and comfy shoes…c’mon now! My Sperry’s are my go-to casual meets professional meets comfy shoe!
That’s all folks!
