Wow!  I cannot believe that it is back to school time already! In-service begins tomorrow with breakfast and district meeting.  I am excited to see all of my teacher friends from the different schools!

I have been busy in my classroom the last few weeks I want to share some pictures!  I still have a few stacks (okay, a LOT of stacks) to clean up so I will hopefully be posting the rest of the pictures tomorrow.  My new intern Shelby and I have a lot to do tomorrow!

Here is what I have been working on:

First of all, let me shout out some LoVe to the reason I do what I do!
I love you Gus & Madeline! Thanks for being so good while Mommy was working!

My outside hallway "Seasonal" board will change as the months do.  This is my "Welcome" board! Pinterest provided me with the idea to add the saying to the welcome letters I already had!  Thanks Sunny Days in Second Grade! (Check out the pin at

 This is my main outside hallway bulletin board.  I always theme this one out to match our school theme.  This year it is "CES Rocks!" Get it? AC DC's album "For those about to rock we salute you"...I changed it to go with Kindergarten!

I am sure that I saw these adorable pointers on a blog, but I cannot remember which one! (If anyone out there is the blogosphere knows, please comment so that I can give credit where it is due!) They are the foam bath letters and I used colored drink stirrers for the sticks. I used the pot my daughter Madeline made me to hold them.

Now, I DO know where I got this binder! A HuGe shout goes out to Mrs. Pollard at Tales of a Teacherista! She made this binder for herself (check it out here) and I absolutely fell in LoVe with it!  I commented on her blog and asked her if she planned to sell it on TpT.  The next thing I knew, the files to print were in my email!  She even customized the cover and spine for me. W.O.W!  I love my bloggy friends!

Another blog/Pinterest idea that I am working on.  I only have 5 of 22 made so far! A little love for my new Kinders when they come and visit me Thursday at Meet the Teacher. ThUrSdAy?! THIS Thursday! Yikes!

 Finally, the latest addition to my classroom...TURTLES!  My first class pet(s).  I am usually apprehensive about having a class pet. I have enough to do without feeding, cleaning and worrying about another living creature.  However, my buddy teacher Nancy must be rubbing off on me. Plus, peer pressure from my AwEsOmE student teacher last year Maegan.  Now, I have 2 turtles!  Meet Tuck (Top right...think Wonderpets) he is a red eared slider and Pancake (bottom left...think he really looks like a pancake from the top view) he is a soft shell turtle.

More updates tomorrow!


  1. LOVE the notebook!!!!!! :)

    I was looking at your bags you were making for meet the teacher and I was wondering what is on the kindergarten survival kit?

  1. Hi,
    I really love your colourful 'WELCOME' lettering. Where did you get it if you don't mind me asking?
    Thanks in advance!
