Hi All,

I'm linking up with Farley for her Currently party.  Apparently, I am in a bit of a mood (according to it).  Read on, it might amuse you.

So yeah, if you haven't noticed, I have a wasp in my house!  I hate bugs...especially the kind that can fly and sting/bite.  I have a horrible reaction to mosquito bites and the blasted things love me.  It is not reciprocated at all!  Fredericksburg is crawling with them too!  Growl...I am not a happy camper right now!!  Hopefully, it will fly into the nice jelly jar I have for it....wish me luck!

Open House!

Hi All,

Sorry, I've been MIA.  I have been working like crazy to get my room ready for open house.  I know most of you have already begun your school year, but mine doesn't start until the 4th.  So here is a walk through of my room!  Enjoy!

My door...yeah, I jumped onto the Owl Bandwagon :)

Sign I made for my room

LA Board - all the books are from the different genres we will be studying

My awesome director's chair my friend made for can't see it very well, but it has LOVE written in HOKIE colors!  And, of course, my naglene.

My meeting area...I made those crates using real milk crates and seat cushions from IKEA. I really wanted to make those Pinterest ones, but it didn't have that file lip.

My desk area...on the bookshelf is my teacher's's hard to see though.

my schedule


Student work board...on the right is my homework board, but I guess that got cut off.

Science board

Math Board

Class's covered up right now because we do guided discovery of the library.

Supplies area

There you have it.  Hope you liked it.

Monday Made It #13!

Hi All,

I know I have like an hour and change to get this up, but I did finally make something in time for a Monday Made It with Tara.

So I made a pendant banner for my classroom...I know it's not a big deal for most of you awesome crafters, but for this girl, it's a big achievement!  So here it is!

Freebie Friday!

Hi Hi,

It's FRIDAY!!  Monday starts the Teacher Work Week for me :( Sad to see summer go and VERY, VERY SAD TO LEAVE MIKE IN BLACKSBURG WITHOUT ME!  Anyway, I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin' for Freebie Friday.

So I created a freebie for you guys today (that's why this post took such a looong time to post!).  I made over 30 binder covers for you to use in your nifty teacher binder.  There's a bunch of name a few...Common Core (because I know everyone else in the US is on them but Virginia), Student Information, Parent Contacts, Reading, Daily 5, etc.  Just download them and have a look-see!  I hope you enjoy!

Therapeutic Thursday

Morning All,

Crazy early for me on one of my last days to sleep in! Argh!  Linking up with Blog Hoppin', how do I relax?

Hmm, I believe Mike would say I don't.  Even when I'm relaxing, I'm still doing something school related.  However, when it's been a rough day....

Love me some Tropical Smoothie!  Their Chipotle Chicken wrap and a Sunrise Sunset smoothie....*sigh*

or a nice slice of this will make any day back to normal!

I HEART chocolate.

or maybe a bourbon and coke...yes, a coke

These can always relax me after a rough day.

and the best for last....nothing like a good movie or a book :)


How do you relax?

Techie Tip Tuesday!

Morning Everyone!

I'm continuing the Teacher Week with Blog Hoppin' with a fabulous app I found.  It's called Classroom Organizer.  It's an app you can get on your iPhone or Android and use it to track your classroom library.  You scan in the books and kids can check them out.  It's awesome!  Now I can keep track of who is reading what, where my books are, even run assessment reports, and I won't lose them (as much)!  Best of all, it's FREE!  Enjoy!

Must Have Monday!

Hi All,

I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin' with her linky party: Teacher Week!

What must I have in order to survive teaching? Well....

First, COFFEE!
I wouldn't make it to 9:45 without my coffee.  It's such a lifesaver, and not just for me!

Second, my laminator!
This thing has made my life so much easier!  I heart my laminator!

Third, Photoshop CS6!

I wouldn't know how I would make all my TpT printables without it!

Fourth, my TpT Store!
I love all the products on here!  It's been wonderful!

Last but most definitely not least, an understanding spouse!
Don't know what I would do without him!  He keeps me sane when all else fails.

What must you have on this fine Monday?
