Currently & 100 followers

I just started back to school last week so I have total school on the brain right now.  I'm happy to join up with Farley's Currently for the second time this month. I saw all the action yesterday but I was worn out after returning home from school so I'm getting to it today.


B2S clarification

1. I have been making all kinds of banners that I have printed myself as well as items that I have uploaded to Vistaprint. It definitely wouldn't be the same without all my cute ocean clip art and the superhero clip art that I bought for my teammates.

2. I have bought several great files that will help with the transition to common core this year. My current favorites are probably the Common Core ELA Vocabulary Cards for 4th Grade by Ginger Snaps and Common Core Standards Posters for Fourth Grade by Ashleigh. These are both up in my room now. I certainly have other favorites that are more lesson related but I'll stop there.

3. I definitely like to keep organized and I've done some overhaul on my general classroom binder as well as my reading pensieves. 

I'm also excited to have reached 100 followers. I've been hanging on the edge for about a week and I just noticed today that I made it. In honor of the occasion I'm going to do a giveaway.

One lucky winner will get a customized denim clipboard. Below you will see one I made for myself as well as one I personalized for a previous winner. This time the winner will get to pick out your own colors and what kind of theme you might like. I will get scrapbook paper, ribbon, iron-ons and fabric glitter to go with whatever you select.

  6. I am in Michigan. We cannot start until Labor Day, but teachers go back the last week in August. They think families will go on one last vacation, but school sports all begin this coming week. I can get into my room on Monday.
