Oh Yeah, This Bloglovin' Thing

Well here's the thing. I'm not so up on all the blog technology. It took me forever to figure out how to add my blog link when commenting, I still have a wonky header and I have been hearing about this Bloglovin' switchover thing but I've just kind of ignored it. I guess now is the time to get with the program.

I have to be honest, a link-up inspired my switchover. I guess I just needed some motivation.

Are you stuck in the past like me? Well head over to Tori's Teacher Tips - how's that for alliteration - and join the fun.

And if you have no idea how to do anything with Bloglovin' (ahem . . . me) Tori has a fantastic step-by-step tutorial. She also has a little giveaway to go along with it, if you're into free stuff!

Two more days . . . two more days!

A Little Classroom Decor Addition

I don't know how I missed this before, but I just realized what my classroom decor packs were missing (besides the calendar setup on which I am sllloooowwly working) - a cursive alphabet!

Picture Book Linky Party

I cannot resist books - picture books, chapters books, nonfiction books, I love them all. That is why I am back to the blogging world so soon (2 days, 2 posts = unheard of) - to join a fabulous linky over at First Grade and Fabulous!

So picture books for the first week of school. I blogged about something similar last year, during a different linky (click {HERE} to see that list) but I thought I would come up with some new books for this link-up.

#1 To teach about treating others with kindness, I must include, Have You Filled a Bucket Today? by Carol McCloud and David Messing.

#2 To teach about the importance of reading, I will have to included, The Incredible Book-Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers.

#3 And just for something cute, If You Take a Mouse to School by Laura Numeroff.

Now I have to say, there are so many more fantastic books that I want to mention about school rules, friendships, bullying, hard word, etc. but I could just go on for ages, so I'll leave it with these three for today. I hope to do some future blog posts around books for these themes, so hopefully I'll get to mention some more then!

4 More Days . . . and a Little Decor

Well the countdown is officially on now with only four more days of school left, Wahoo!

I've been awfully busy since the last time I blogged, and in particular I have been working on some new decor packs for the classroom. I was going to try and wait till the Summer to think about next year, but I guess there's no better time to start!

So far I have 4 different themes available in my store:

Rainbow Chevron:

Pastel Chevron:

Black & White Chevron:

Black & White Polka Dot:
Each theme has four packs: Alphabet Posters, Number Posters, Shape & Color Posters and Word Wall Headers & 200 Words.


I've got a ton of more decor pack ideas, now I've just got to wait until I have a little more time on my hands. Click {HERE} if you'd like to check out what I have available. If you have any ideas or suggestions of decor packs you'd like to see, please leave them in the comments!

4 more days, 4 more days!
