Hey everyone! We are linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching again this week for a little Five for Friday. So here is a little peek at my week.
My week started off wonderful! My little boy turned one! Time sure does fly and even though I am sad that he is growing up, I am excited for him to become more mobile and independent. He isn’t a full fledged walker yet but he is soooo close!
My nightmares started this week. After the first night, where I had a dream that I got stuck at Starbucks and I couldn’t get to school on time for Back to School night, I thought maybe this is just a fluke? Maybe they aren’t really starting???? W.R.O.N.G. I have had one every night this week! This gave me a kick in the pants to start working on stuff. I have been changing the colors of my room which is requiring me to make some new decor pieces that I have been avoiding so, that’s the first thing I started with.
This is what I have done so far. A new welcome sign for the door, pieces for a new job chart as well as a class helpers sign, new learning target posters and finally a parent flip book, another idea from Pinterest! Now I need to laminate all the pieces and copy the flip book on some bright paper. I am feeling better that I have gotten some stuff done. Maybe this will make the nightmares go away??????? Am I that lucky????
To go along with number 2, my mom and I took our annual trip to Lakeshore and Ikea this week. It amazes me that we go every year, and every year I still find so much to buy! At Lakeshore, I just stocked up on smelly stickers, my kids LOVE them, and other staples. I did find these two things:
How cute are these letters?!?!?! For the past few years I have had my kiddos make their name tags and I put a little paper on them that they use to track their behavior score each day. This year I made a new behavior clip chart to use, so I found these SUPER cute name tags! I’m pretty excited about them!
At Ikea I found these super cute frames that I am going to spray paint to match my room and put behind my desk on a bookshelf. They were $3.00! Can’t beat that!
Here are the rest of my finds. Now that I’m not in a portable, the kids shouldn’t be bringing in as much sand which is why I chose this new rug. The stools are for my computers and who can resist those frames??? The green storage tubs are my favorite. I already have a bunch in blue so I am excited that they have green now!
Right after school got out this year our district had some presenters come and present to us. I learned A LOT of cool things but my FAVORITE new piece of knowledge…abebooks.com! Have you checked this place out?!?!?!?!? ADDICTING! They are all used books and they are at cheap prices! A lot of the books ship for free. I have probably ordered 25 different books so far and I haven’t had a bad one yet.
These are the only two I have left at home. The rest I have already taken to school but look at how awesome they are! Anytime I can get cheap books I get pretty excited!!!
