Words for the Wise

I used the cute scrapbook paper I found as a backing for my weekly vocabulary words. I love the way they turned out! I laminated the sheets and attached a clothes pin to each one with hot glue. I just type up my words every week and attach them to the clothes pin.

Labor Day Finds!!!

I found some great deals for my classroom today!!! I have been using outdoor pillows in my classroom during independent reading. Target had the exact color I needed, and they were on clearance for only $3.34! I also found a rug for my library that was on clearance for $10. I then headed to Hobby Lobby to get a pack of owl cardstock my friend told me about. Luckily, there was 1 left, and it was 40% off!!! It is just what I needed for my classroom. Pics are below!

Enjoy your 4 day work week!

Baby Steps!

I am taking my first step into the popular world of teacher blogging. I have been wanting to give it a try for awhile, but I thought I better get back into the swing of working again before I add something new to my plate. My two little boys keep me busy enough!! I spent last school year at home with them on maternity leave. My youngest is now 1, and my oldest will be 4 in December. Where does the time go? Anyway, I am fully back in the swing of being a working mom. My school started back the last week of July, so we will be starting our 6th week of school on Tuesday. It was a smooth transition for me. I love my school, and I have a great class. My boys also love their schools and their teachers. However, they have been sick constantly. We are now battling the stomach flu. So far, the score is stomach flu 4 and the Miller Family 0. On the plus side, I have had time to work on my blog. I am starting by uploading some pics from my classroom.

Enjoy your day off tomorrow!
