Happy Sunday!!
I'm feeling pretty random today, so I'm linking up with Michelle over at Fabulous in First for some Sunday Smorgasbord fun!
It's the 8th day of our Christmas in July sale!! Today's deal is on my Common Core: Writing All Year Long in First Grade packet. This is a supplemental resource designed to reinforce the Common Core narrative, informational, and opinion writing standards for first grade {W.1.1, W.1.2, W.1.3}. Each packet includes graphic organizers, writing prompt sheets for the entire year {all major holidays, seasons, etc.}, task cards, editing checklists, and reflection sheets for each writing standard. It's on sale for $10 {reg.$15.50}.
This girl is ready to decorate her classroom! I'll be working every single day this week changing my theme to primary colors {with a mix of chevron and polka dots}! Here's some of the decor goodies I can't wait to use...
Tissue Paper Pom Poms & Fans- Party City
Chevron Cups- Wal-Mart {only 97 cents each}
"Grow"  Container- Hancock Fabrics {50% off}
Ribbon- Hobby Lobby

Can't wait to show you the big reveal in August!

Last night, I put together these little back to school survival kits for my upcoming new crew! They were super simple to make & I got most of the items from the Dollar Tree. I'm planning on putting them on their desks during "Meet the Teacher", which is right around the corner!

I'm sooooo sad that I'm not going to Vegas this week to see all my blogging besties! If you're headed that way, I hope you have an AMAZING time! Here is a picture of us last year!!
Such great memories....
Coming Soon....
I'm still working away on my newest labor of love: Numbers to 120! I promise...just a few more afternoons at Starbucks and it should be ready to share!! Can't wait!!
Hope you have a wonderful day!!!

Love the colored Pompoms! I'm going to have to invest in them for a little classroom flair :) Also, as a fellow first grade teacher, I love your blog! Enjoy the rest of your summer!

I love your Survival Kit! I used to make one for testing day, never thought about one at the beginning of the year! Great idea! Can't wait to see your decorated classroom!

Yes, would love to see the classroom. When do you start? We start Aug. 12 & kids on the 15th. Thanks for the Survival Kit freebie! Just wondering what size bag you used. This will be great! I usually do something like this on their desk for "Meet the Teacher" night, so always looking for new ideas. Thanks again, Jackie
