Congrats and Cleaning

Congrats to Debbie and Pam. My husband picked you two lucky ladies for the freebies. Please check your emails to make sure you received the products. If not, please email me.

On Thursday I went to school to clean. It is something that I should have done before school got out, but I didn't. I spent about 5 hours going through things and getting rid of things I hadn't used or didn't need. I probably have 1 more day of the same thing and then I can start setting up for this upcoming school year! It's freaking me out that school starts in 3 WEEKS!!!!!  I still have golf lessons to take and exercise classes to attend!! This work thing is just getting in the way!!LOL!!!

It is supposed to be 105 degrees here today so I need to get moving and get my workout in so I can relax by the pool!! 

I hope everyone has a fabulous Saturday!! Relax and enjoy!!!

Back to School Shopping, Revisions, and New Products!!

Happy Tuesday to everyone!! Why is it that once June is over the summer seems to fly by??? I officially start school in less than a month...August 12th!!! OMG!! Where does the time go??? I try not to be Debbie Downer and just enjoy the rest of my summer, but of course the brain starts turning and it won't shut off. Last night I had a dream nightmare that it was the week before Open House and I hadn't done a thing!!! Yes, I tossed and turned the whole night trying to figure out how I was going to get my room ready in 3 days!! Does this happen to anyone else???

So I have been doing a little school shopping...

These are going to be my kids wallets to hold their Rockstar Bucks!! They were 47¢ a piece at WalMart!
I recovered my seat crates! I just love the orange chevron!

New rug from Ikea! It was only $19.99. I think I am going to get one more.

Book boxes and notebooks for Daily 5!

Couldn't resist the zebra accents!!

New color scheme for updating my Rockstar Theme!!

Here is my new product that I just uploaded to TPT!

My sister Marissa (Wild About First Grade!) has been trying to decide on a new theme for her classroom most of summer. She liked my first Owl Theme pack I had created for other friends, but when we found this border at Lakeshore she new Owls was going to be her new theme.

So this was the inspiration for my second Owl Theme pack!! It contains 225 pages of decor items!! Here are some pictures to show you what is in there:


Of course I would love to give one away to my blog followers. Just leave a comment below with your email and I will have my husband pick a lucky number tonight!!

I also added :

Here is a preview of some of the wrist bands!!

Yes, I will also give one of these away as well. Just leave a comment with your email address and the hubby will pick another lucky number!!

Finally, I did add a few new items to my Rockstar Classroom Theme Pack:

Below are the new additions : a new set of table group signs, 2 different sets of birthday months to display kids b-days, and a new design of tens frames posters.

I am off to a golf lesson and a Tight and Tone class!! I do love summer vacation!!!

A Big Change, New Products, and Some Freebies!!!

I hope everyone had a great fourth of July and is enjoying the beginning of their weekend!! We finally have had some cooler weather the mid 90's. I live in California and the last 5-7 days have been 105 +. Miserable!!! 

So I have some news...Earlier this year I had asked my principal if there was a possibility of me moving to first grade and then looping to second with the new class. My current grade level partner and I thought it would be a great opportunity for many reasons. We knew there was one opening, but we wanted to take on this new adventure together. Guess what?? On Wednesday we found out that we are able to move to first and loop to second!! We are so excited!! I am a little nervous because I have never taught first, but I think it will be a great challenge and lots of fun too.

I just uploaded some new products today at my TPT store:

Each one has denominations of $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $100, and $500. They are personalized for grades first through fifth grade.

I am going to give away 5 free copies!! All you have to do is be a follower of my blog on Bloglovin and tell me what your classroom theme is going to be this year!! The first five people to comment will get to choose. Please make sure you leave me your email!! 

TGIF to everyone!!
