Back to School Calendar

Ready or not, it is that time!  Time to head back to the classroom.  I'm not really ready yet.  I've spent the summer crafting close reading lessons for Learnzillion, so I haven't had my regular pool time yet.  However, today I met my new 6th graders which made me get quite a bit more excited to start a brand new year.  Speaking of a new year, I made myself a cute new calendar for my teacher binder.  I'm repeating last year's polka dot theme in my classroom, so I just had to have a coordinating calendar.  I decided to put the calendar in my Tpt store in several different themes.  Check them out this weekend during the big Teachers Pay Teachers Back to School Sale!  Everything in my store is 20% off, and Tpt is giving an extra 10% off of that if you ENTER THE CODE BTS13!  (I forgot to enter the code last time!)  I know I'll probably spend more than I earn, but I am super excited about this sale.  I have tons of items on my wishlist.  Have a great year!

Inspirational Video for Starting School

I love starting a new year with new kids.  I'm not always excited to end my summer, but I do love a fresh start.  Today I saw a video which I thought was really inspiring.  I think it might be a great way to start off a new school year.  Yep, gonna use it!
