Back to School (for me that is) & a TPT SALE Pt. II & GIVEAWAY

I spent a good amount of time today getting my classroom ready.  I decided yesterday, for the 1st time in 7 years to change my classroom theme!  Although I love the ocean/beach theme, and will do it again for sure, it was time for a change.  I will be having some of the same students from last year, so I think that they will appreciate the change too.  So...I am changing to a sports themed room!  I figure that with the Olympics just finishing up, this will be perfect.  I have a confession though...I will sneak in as much Sparty as possible (a very proud MSU alum here!!!).  So I bought some green and white stuff to go all around the room.  I'll post pictures once it is all up:)
Sparty and I when we were very fortunate to have him visit our school for March is Reading Month:)


I will be joining in the TPT back to school sale on the 12th and 13th with having my entire store be 20%!  http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Beach-Teacher 


I hope that you can come and find something that will make your life a little easier!  I am also having a give-away here!  I will be giving and 2 items of your choice from my store to the 1st two people who comment below.  Make sure that you include your e-mail, and which two items from my store that you would like.

Back to School (for me that is) & a TPT SALE

This past week I was in my classroom.  My school normally has summer day camp so normally we are unable to get into our classrooms until a few days before.  This year we did not, and as I finished summer school I wanted to take my things back there, rather than in my garage...it has enough other school things there.  I will be going back next week for a day or two, but want to enjoy summer vacation too:)

Now that that is over, I am taking my first grad class in a few years to renew my teaching certificate next year.  I am taking my class on-line from Connecting Link.  I am really looking forward to it as it is a math class and I love teaching math!  Has anyone out there taken a class from them?  Two of my friends have in the past and recommended it.

As I am starting this class, I decided to throw a sale at my Teachers Pay Teachers storeAll of my math related materials will be 20% off through Monday!  This includes my brand new Primary Grades Math Reference Guide.  This reference guide provides pages of math references your primary grades students can use. You can print the entire reference guide and make a copy for each student, or you can use individual pages as needed for your grade/unit. Reference guides can be kept in math folders or math notebooks. You could also print them out to use as anchor charts during a unit of study.
