Back to School Freebie!

Happy Sunday!
Last Monday I went back to school for professional development. We have another few days of PD before meet the teacher on the 21st and our first day on the 25th! I cant wait to see all my kiddos:] Last Tuesday we had all day to work in our rooms to decorate and organize. I got a whole 10 minutes of work done in my room before this happen...

Yep, that's right.. I was on a table in my classroom hanging something on the wall ( you know you have done it a million times!) I stepped off and my left knee popped out of place and sent me tumbling down the floor where I broke my left arm. Oh and did I mention I am left handed? Yeah, I start school in 8 days and I can not write! I haven't been to the orthopedic doctor just yet so I don't know how long I will be this way yet:[

It's a good thing I have wonderful people in my life that will come and help me work on my room:] ( Ignore that table)

Anywho! I have made some supply labels and direction cards for you lovelies! I use these in my classroom and the really help keep me and the kids organized. Everything has its place and with the supply labels you can see where that place is! The direction cards I put up on my white board so if a student forgets what to do next he can just look at the board and remember:] CLICK HERE to get them for free ( This item is only free for today!!! don't miss out!)

Teacher Mode:ON! Getting ready for back to school time

Its officially August! The month where the smell of new pencils and crayons fill the air! YEP it is back to school time. I am excited to meet all to the new little faces that will be in my classroom this year but lets be honest... I'm also trying to hold on to the sleeping till noon life as long as possible.

Last week I made my first visit to my classroom since June and got a head start on organizing and decorating. Every year, my to do list on the day of meet the teacher is still a million miles long and I am forced to just shove everything I didn't get to in the closet so my class will look neat and put together when everyone visits! That is not happening this year my friends! I WILL have time to do everything on my list this year!!!

Here is what my classroom looked like when I visited last week.

Pretty empty, right? At our school we pack up everything and put it in and on the students cubbies or our closets so they can wax the floors every year. I've got big plans for my room this year and can't wait to share it with you all when it is done!
