End of the Year Freebie

WOW!! The end is here...  It has been a very hard year professionally so on that front I am glad and excited to learn what new adventures and school family God has in store for me...  But I am sad about losing my class.  I had a really great group of kiddos this year!  They are very kind and loved to learn!

So I always want to do something cute for end of the year gift like so many post I see but it seems the day just sneaks up on me (how?  yeah I know ;) )  and I run out of time.  Well this year for some reason--even with packing up a classroom I have not felt rushed--YEAH!!  So I used one of my leave early passes and headed to the Dollar Tree.  Not sure what I wanted to do--just something simple.  Well I am quite proud of the end result.  And I even made a cute little tag!!

So got the baskets, chalk, and popsicles from the Dollar Tree, add in a cute summer activity from Amy Lemons.  I let them pick out the popsicle.  I had book marks already.  Make the tag (there is one for boys and one for girls) and Voila!!  I spent $3.00 per kid and it was super simple and cute!

So if you happen to be still in school maybe these will save you a little time!
Happy Summer!

OMG!! A posting!!

Hi y'all!!  Something amazing is happening.....I actually am posting!  I don't know about y'all but this year has been terrible hard!!  I don't even know were to begin...  So I won't!  I can not believe it is already mid January!!  I wanted to stop by and talk about something I am in love with:  sit spots.   Have you seen these??  If not check them out they are SO COOL!

So in 2nd I do not have a rug like in kinder.  I like having a meeting place and honestly I do not want to fork out $100s for a rug for my classroom.  I could not stand tape because they just pick at it.  I hated how my kids would sit all over but it took to long to assign them areas.  And then I ran across these cool little things.  They are basically velcro... but SO much cooler!   They work on most carpets but not on rugs.

Now we have such a uniform area!!  4 rows of 5.  Each person has a space and I can assign specific spots if needed..  No body is to far from me, I still have room to walk (when piles of books are not there :), and I swear they learn better!!  lol  They just make me SO happy!!

You can go to their website and request a sample.  I got an apple and used that to mark where the start of the line is-no more being crowded, stepped on, or on top of the lockers!!

I hope your year is going fab!!  Here is to 2015 and a better year!
