Getting Ready....

Hello sweet friends!

Let me start by saying....we have RAIN!   We are in a drought (again!) and it is raining (and cooler weather!) YEA!!

I haven't been able to get into my classroom, so I have been working and getting things ready at home.  Hopefully this week, I will get up into my room and start actually putting these things up on the wall!

But you know....when I bring two kids to "work" in the classroom, I end up spending more time cleaning and chasing and yada yada yada!  Between Jaxon getting out manipulatives and games, and Little M wanting to eat them all....we don't get much work done!

So.....  I just wanted to share what I will *hopefully* get up this week!

I made some new helpers.....

Don't you just love Melonheadz clipart??!!  I am love!!

This is what they look like before hanging them up...

You can use Velcro or thumb tacks (just punch a hole in the top of the accent to easily hang!)  to attach the student names (I will have my "STAR Helpers") but you can use any accent with student names! 

I am also trying to get everything for my calendar ready to go, so here is what I have so far....

I have it on a black background, because that is what I have up in my room...

I have also made a new dismissal clip chart...

It's a slow start....but I'm getting there!  

I also purchased Amy Lemon's numbers..... and I printed them on neon paper because they will also be on a black background, so they will "POP"!!  I LOVE these!!

I have also made my new "Non-Verbal Hand Signal Posters" which work great in my classroom!  (I never had the posters, but we have used the signals!)

Click on the picture or {HERE} for the posters!

I have also been working on my morning work packets, because I just really wanted a change this year!  I will start having their folders for each month with their MORNING MUNCHIES activity sheet for each day. 

Each day has multiple Literacy and Math activities that *most* students should be able to work on independently!

Aside from working on school stuff...Little M had to get a *minor* surgery done on Friday, in hopes to prevent further illness!  Here he is in his little hospital gown!  (and long blonde curly hair that needs a trim!)

Between this and I have to start planning a FIRST BIRTHDAY!!  Where has this time gone??

Let's have a little fun....  the first 3 comments can pick their choice of the Hand Signal posters OR the Morning Munchies packet!!  Just leave your email address and let me know which one you want!!

When I get everything up in my room....I will post updated pictures!!

Have a great week!

  2. Those are so cute! I can't get in my room yet (they're over-haulin' our building for the new year!) but I'm itching to start getting ready! Would *LOVE* the Morning Munchies packet to help kick off the new year! Hope all goes well with your little one's surgery!

  4. I know exactly what you mean about bringing in the kids to "help." My little guy dumped out shoe boxes of crayons before I got to him.

  5. Everything looks beautiful! I hope your little cutie is okay! He looks so happy!

  6. The morning munchies have been such a great resource and way to review what my students know from the last year! Can't wait for the next set to come out! ((p.s. I am a new follower))

  7. Can the dismissal clip chart be purchased from your TPT store? I love this version of it!

  8. ^what she said I would LOVE to buy your dismissal chart!
