A Peek Inside the Classroom

My BACK to SCHOOL favorite diy for the classroom was putting the class rule posters into IKEAS colorful picture frames.  As of now I have placed them on-top of the library. I also LOVE the way the double border looks against the black backing paper!! (so exciting)

My favorite back-to-school DIY

I filled up a gum ball machine with erasers. So fun to use as a little reward, I have it in my math center and usually use it when I see students trying hard during math workshop!

Matching Mother Daughter Outfits {oh,no}

Matching outfits for Mom and her Daughter? "NO WAY" This I have to say has NEVER been on my list of things to do with my little girl.
I've always thought this style was a bit much, and screams "look at us".
Then CrewCuts made my favorite Tippi heart sweater for little girls.

I have to admit, this outfit was not planned for the same day, YES, I totally knew we had the same adorable sweater, Yes we both absolutely love it...but when I came home from school yesterday and my little girl was wearing the same outfit, my heart did melt!  We giggled, we hugged and of course we snapped some photos!

Meet the Teacher

Today was "meet the teacher" I tired!!
Although I have been teaching for quite some time {16 yrs}, I feel like I'm still nervous and anxious..and..I'm still sweating and babbling while talking to the parents..
Can you believe that after all of these years I am still reading straight off my cheat notes, ugh..and the worst part is my bright red,red,face!
On the positive side, my classroom looked great, neat, and organized.
I had lots of student work up on ALL of the bulletin boards.
I wore my lucky JCrew Library Dress!
and..I  gave the parents a cute pinterest inspired treat from Kindergarten Cupcake Crumbs Blog.
So all in all it went well. Happy its back to Talking to the Students tomorrow. (LOL)

Bye... Sweet Summer

        Just finished packing backpacks, making lunches & snacks, and laying out 
                        1st day outfits..
My kiddies start school tomorrow. They are beyond excited, we had a long wonderful summer together and now they will see their friends, meet their new teachers and get to use all their brand new school supplies. I am excited for them, I can't believe how much they've grown..(tears) I'm so proud of them..
                    So..summer is officially over..
I have PD for two days then I meet my sweet, 4th graders on Thursday..I am excited to implement "bucket filling", Daily 5 and create my CAFE board.. I've pinned about every common core thing I found so I guess I'm ready. (lol)

Good luck if you start school this week, and have a fantastic week if you have started already!

Teaching Fashionista +Magna Borders = Happy

I found something SO cool at Lakeshore Learning yesterday
Have you ever seen magnetic borders? Oh' Happy Day!! 
I usually divide my blackboard/dry erase board with border. 
 For years I've laminated it so it would last a bit longer,  but cutting it out was very time consuming. 
I can't wait to put these on filing cabinets, my classroom door, window sill... 
ugh possibilities are endless!

I took the kiddies to see Dog Days- Diary of a Wimpy Kid 
last night.
They laughed for an hour straight. I thought it was pretty funny myself...
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days follows 2010‘s Diary of a Wimpy Kid and 2011’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules as the third installment in the series of kids’ comedies adapted from the best-selling graphic-novella series.
This second sequel, as relaxed as a summer vacation, is based on the third and fourth illustrated novels in the seven-book series — The Last Straw and Dog Days – by author and cartoonist Jeff Kinney, who is also the film’s executive producer.  ( NYTimes
 My classes have always been BIG fans of Jeff Kinney. He also has a really cool site.
