Have you been shopping yet? Dont forget TPT is having a huge sale right now. I may or may not have gone shopping already twice. Check out my store while you are there. Just click on the pic to head on over.
I have a couple of new items in my store just in time for the big sale.
I had a request to make a Superhero Welcome Bulletin Board after I made my Hollywood one. So here you are friends.
I also made a new communication folder to fit my new classroom theme.
Check them out by clicking on the pic.
Ok now onto the big winner of the $25 TPT gift certificate.
I have so many things in my wishlist already and am adding more today.
I better hide the bank statement from the hubby. sshhh!
Well my little store will also be 20% off so just click on the pic to head on over and check it out.
I have hit a 300 follower milestone on Instagram and I thought what better way to say thank you than to give away a TPT giftcard. This way you can do more shopping and not have to hide the bank statements like me.
The writers eye printable are a little freebie that I remade from The First Grade Parade. Just click on the link or the picture to head on over to my store and download my updated version of the freebie.
This is the front of my room. I just love how bright and cheery it looks.
I reached my first 200 followers on instagram so I made this little freebie. Just click on the pic to head on over to my store and download.

I have been making progress in my classroom. Yay! Not as much as I want to be making because the janitors are still cleaning so I have to leave early, but I know I am lucky to be able to go in whenever I want so I am not going to complain.
The last 2 years I have had a Hollywood Theme which I loved but was looking for a change. This was my writing bulletin board from last year.
It was super cute but didn't fit my new theme. So I took it all down and changed the fabric and borders.
This is what it looks like now:
I cannot wait to finish it.
Last year I had these posters above my guided reading table.
The students used them sooooooo much!
These were adorable but again did not fit my new theme so I came up with these.
You can click the pic to head on over to my TPT.
So now for the Sale!
I know alot of you are already creating Back to School units.
I created these two sets of clipart last year for the beginning of the year.
They are now 20% off so just click on the pic to head on over to my store.
I know some of you are back to school already and I am sorry! I still have a whole month left which is not enough for my never ending to do lists.
The first thing I needed to do was get my fabric for my classroom. I had a Hollywood theme last two years so I had a lot of red and yellow fabric and I was over it! So I made a trip to Joann fabrics and was overwhelmed to say the least. After an hour or so of debating on fabric I decided on these:
I love how they tie in all my colors. So excited to get my crafting on and attempt a curtain for my room.
Next on my to do list was to finish my wardrobes and clean off the top because when I left school I literally just shoved everything up there. So today I got up early and headed into my classroom to find this:
The janitors cleaned my room last week and moved all of my stuff right in front of my wardrobes.
So I spent an hour moving the desks out my way. Not the way I wanted to spend my morning!
So I covered my ugly wood panel wardrobes with this beautiful wrapping paper.
I know that there is contact paper out there I can use but let me tell you I tried it and I do not have the patience for it. I detest air bubbles and they were popping up left and right. If you have the patience then more power to you. As for me I looked in the party supply section at Walmart and found this wrapping paper for $3 and I laminated it and mounted taped it onto my wardrobe. No air bubbles and it was super quick to put up. I just lined it with sparkly duct tape and voila I was done!
I redid my word wall as well.
I love the pop of color.
I redid my weekly drawers. Look how cute they came out. They are from Learning in Wonderland just click on the link.
The last thing I did today was update my table cubbies. They were looking pretty boring so I decided to cutesify them.
Today was a pretty productive day. I will go back to school tomorrow and get some more done.
Im trying to get as much done this week because next week my family and I are heading to Legoland.
