I'm right in the middle of pre-planning and the kiddos start next Wednesday... WOW... it seems like we JUST had the last day of school.
I swear summer just keeps getting faster & faster with every single year....
Anyhoooo... time to link up with Farley & this month's Currently.
'tis tradition to do a little talking on this bloggy thingy, so here goes...
Listening to... America's Got Talent.
I do love it. It's just addictive and I get so attached to some of the acts, it kills me when they get cut, and I actually tear up when they go through. That's a little sad to confess, but true all the same :)
Loving.... Chevron. Yeah, I'm sure that's not news to any of you, but I think I might need to seek a support group for this obsession of mine. MB is afraid I might induce seizures with all the chevron in my classroom, but I do love it. *Look below for a chevron FREEBIE, too!
Thinking... about everything that STILL needs to be done in my classroom. I really don't know how it's all gonna get done. We got our *early* class rolls today, and I have 22 kiddos..... I haven't had this many kids in YEARS, and I'm afraid that number is just gonna go up before we actually go back to school. I only have 20 desks, so that's task number one...get more desks! Don't want those poor babies to have to sit on the floor...or on my seat crates... haha!
Wanting.... Some new digs & a pedi ! I would LOVE to go do some shopping that isn't school supply related & snag me a new outfit, but I'm afraid I've gone over budget on school stuff, and I'm gonna have to pull something and pretend it's new. Oh, and a pedi. Seriously, friends.. it's probably more of NEED than a want !
Needing.... a foot rub and some comfy shoes. I was at school for almost 12 full hours today working in my room & my feetsies are killing me. Does anyone else have this problem?? After a summer full of lounging and kicking it in some flip flops, standing on concrete floors (with a THIN layer of carpet, sure) just about knocks me to my knees. Doesn't look like I'll be rocking some cute heels or wedges for back to school this year... am I really getting old here?!
B2S Must Haves...
1 - Caffeine. Necessity... I think I could have an IV mainlining it the first few days. That alarm clock goes off WAY too early.
2 - Flair Pens & a Planner. No matter how many years I've been doing this, and even counting in all those years as a student, I never ever tire of a brand new planner and some awesome colored Flair pens to fill it all in. Just love it !
3 - Khrys Bosland's Fonts - I use them for EVERYTHING & they are so stinkin' cute !!! I can make so many things for my room, and most of them are so easy to read so I can use them for parent letters, too. LOVE. Click *here* to grab them in her TpT store !
So, that's my Currently. Can't wait to read all of yours, so head on over & link up!
Oh,and before I go....I've got a little freebie for you!
I saw this on Pinterest the other night, and can't wait to get it made for my room....
Amber at T is for Teaching made this super cute jobs chart. Hers has the explanations for each job and I LOVE that , but my littles just can't read all that yet, so I made some cards that will work well for my firsties. And, I thought I'd share them with you... plus, they're chevron, so you know I love them! :)
Click the picture to grab this FREEBIE at my TpT store.
Click the above link for Amber's link to her TpT store for her cards, too!
Ok, friends... time to get a little laminating done & head to bed...hopefully. I have a full day in-service tomorrow (ugh!), so I gotta get some shut-eye!!
Hope everyone's weeks are going WONDERFULLY & you're all ready to tackle August with the love that made you choose this job... it really IS a great time of year!!! :)
