Hi, Friends!  How’ve you been?  Things have finally settled down some around here. 

I spent most of today in meetings, so my head is overflowing with information and ideas! What better way to unwind than by heading over to the blogosphere?

Remember those binder labels I told you about? Notice my binders DO NOT have them yet?  I think my printer is possessed! It has picked the absolute worst time to be temperamental! It keeps stopping in the middle of a print job to tell me to INSTALL A PRINTER!!!! What the what is wrong with that crazy thing?!?

Ok, rant over….back to our regularly scheduled programming. Hehehe!

My team met today for the first time! It was fun to sit and laugh and talk and share for a while.  This is going to be a great year! 

See the vowels?

We’ll use these to eliminate, the infamous… “that’s my seat”, “I was sitting there” conversations. Students will be seated at the table in front of the same vowel each time they come to small group.  We can also use them for word play.

Yep! Got the idea from Pinterest! =)

Behavior clip chart is up! I’ll be labeling the clips with student numbers soon.  I’ve decided to use numbers this year instead of their names.  I am believing that the heavens will open up and rain down a class of sweet angels, BUT just in case a clip has to be moved down as a warning….there’ll be no negativity associated with having their name attached to the clip.

Library station is coming together.  I *LOVE* IKEA.  I also *LOVE* putting things together, BUT putting those darn leaves took me 3 days, lol! The first one anyway…..after I finally “got it”, it took me 5 minutes to put the other one together! Hilarious!

AAAAAAAAAND, the Easi Speak that I won from Lori at Teaching With Love and Laughter came in the mail today! It’s so tiny and cute! It looks super simple to use and I think its going to become quite the valuable tool! So, excited!  Thanks, Lori!


Now, how about a freebie for my fab 400?  


Click the picture of the student directions card to grab it.  I hope you find it useful!  Teacher directions are also included in the GoogleDoc. Thanks for hopping by! I’ve just added a couple, three……five things to tomorrow’s “to do” list, so this girlie is off to go get some shut eye!

Bye bye, butterfly!
