A Perfect 10!

Do any of you remember the
crazed bird that kept flying
into our sliding doors for days
and days ALL DAY LONG?!
Well, that situation got better...
this morning I woke up to a new
sound at the door.....

It was a squirrel scratching to get in!

I wasn't quick enough to get a
picture, but he'll probably be back later!

Have you heard about 
Used Teaching Treasures Emporium?!

Charity Preston from 
The Organized Classroom Blog 
started it on facebook
and it is growing fast and is ah-mazing!
It is a page to buy and sell new or
used teacher products 
(hard copies only...nothing digital)! 
Super fun but you gotta be fast 
because items go quickly!


Here is a fun way for students
to practice facts of 10!

Included are 10 math events (games),
5 individual & 5 partner,
for practicing facts of 10!

(Scroll down for the freebie!)

Click here to check it out at my TpT store!

You can jazz it up by awarding
medals once they master their facts!
Click here to check them out at
Oriental Trading!
Too bad they don't have a 
10 on them!

Teacher Tipster Inspired Freebie and MISSION POSSIBLE!

With a class of 29+ heading my way,
(and a warning recommendation to have
A LOT of behavior management tricks
up my sleeve)
I came up with this fun idea!

Secret Student Spy!

Here is one more freebie!

I needed a way to remember
all of Mr. Smith's (Teacher Tipster)
classroom management ideas
so I created these cue cards!
Click here to go to TPT to download!

I did get permission to use the 
Teacher Tipster name in the title!
Make sure you check out his website

and his facebook page

There are links to printables and videos
that are so fun to watch AND give great ideas!

1st Grade Self-Portraits

I was working at school today
for a short time and looked up
at my wall where the students
self-portraits hang. 
I realized I had a really old,
ugly poster hanging there!
So I updated!

several versions of posters
that can be used for a 
1st grade self-portrait wall 
or for a class book!

1st Day of School Award


I have given a certificate similar to this, 
(but with kisses)
 on the first day of school, for years! 
I don't know where it came from...
maybe an old Mailbox??  

I thought it needed a new look and I 
wanted to change the kiss to a hug!

I have been inspired by so many
to FINALLY get rid of some of my
precious things junk in my classroom.
With 28 (2 moved away!) students on
their way to 1st grade, I needed more
room! It was HARD...but like a band-aid...
once off (gone) it feels so much better!

I will post before and after pictures later
today! If they haven't already emptied my
room to do carpets!

Bummer! They already emptied my room.
I'll do a post when I get it set back up!

Thanks for stopping by!
