5 Days until School Starts! 4th of July Sale!!

Happy 4th of July!! It's hard to believe it's the 4th of July and the first day of school at my new job is MONDAY!! EEK!! I'm super excited to meet the rest of the kiddos (I met 2 last week)!! I also can't wait to show my teaching partner what I did to the room! She was on a family trip out of the country, so that left the whole room design and organization up to me. I emailed her pics of our monster themed classroom, but it's just not the same as seeing it in person!

I'm secretly LOVING tutoring one of my kiddos from my old school! I swear, I don't even need the cash (although it's nice), I just really like working with him! We have a happy little routine. In fact, it's working so well that we get about 4 pages of work done in an hour, even when I made it harder! Truth is, we have a deal... we get to read a book together! Yep, that's it...the whole deal. If he works hard, we get to pick any book in the children's section of the city library and I read it to him while we sit on adorable puzzle piece shaped couches. He loves it and so do I! Plus I give him the tiniest of fruit snacks (the healthy kind) when he finishes a page. I mean these things are smaller than an M&M and he thinks they're amazing. I do too actually, they're delicious!
The puzzle couch is made of these. Aren't they COOL?!

Today I was wondering around Target and honestly got downright GIDDY when I saw the worker bees setting up the Back to School section!! I know it's my 8th school year as a teacher, you'd think I'd stop getting excited, but I still do! I LOVE brand new crayons! I love the look of a freshly decorated classroom before the kids have had a chance to fiddle with things and make them look less than perfect. I love seeing the kids excited to walk into their new room!

Here's my "To Do List" before Monday:
  • Make the kids name tags for our behavior chart (with monster clip art of course!)
  • Laminate and cut out the monster heads that will go above their displayed work...eventually
  • Decide on the next couple boxes that get the pleasure of leaving the hallway of my house for their new home in my classroom
  • Figure out which box has my ocean theme unit binder so we can start our first theme unit for the year. I figure if we have to be at school instead of the beach, we should at least be able to think about the beach and the ocean!
  • Dig up my Monster Goes to School lesson and behavior cards. Don't think I didn't notice how PERFECT this is since we have a monster theme classroom! Luckily coincidence!
It's Sale Time!!!
I just realized it's been....well too long...since I had a sale! July 4th-7th everything in my store will be 20% off. Go pick up those things you've wishlisted! Click the image to go directly to my TPT store :)
