T shirt freebie

Okay, I think I've figured out this freebie thing!  I made myself a tshirt for this year the other day and thought I would share it if anyone would like a copy.  I used Melonheadz for the clipart.  This is what the logo looks like:

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Freebie.....or, at least an attempt at it!

         
Click here for your copy!
Okay, I'm trying this out!  I made some word wall words that go with the Primary Success Sight Reading 1 program as a freebie.  I hope I have linked it properly but this is my test.  Even if you don't use Primary Success, you could find this useful!

Yay!  Went into the classroom today and actually remembered my camera!

 I'm happy that I finally remembered my camera so that I could share this with you!  I still need to do my hallway bulletin board with some welcoming info.

It's been over a week since I last posted.  My son has been in hockey school during that time as well as my daughter and I were out of town for the weekend.  I've done quite a bit in my classroom and have done some more planning.  Two weeks until we are back in the classroom!  Anyways, I'll post photos as soon as I remember to bring my camera!

I was in the classroom this evening (better than sitting watching TV, I figured).  Anyways, I managed to get quite a bit done.  of course, I forgot to take photos so I'll have to take them next time I go in.  I've gotten my year plan laid out and I'm getting closer to being ready.  one thing that I did get finished was a first week of school frame.  I made it so I can take the word "first" off and replace it with "last".  I knew there would be no way I could do the photos on the first day so I made it week instead of day.

 Anyways, have a great night!

Well, I managed to get into the classroom yesterday for a short while.  My carpets were being washed today so I wasn't able to rearrange any furniture but I did manage to get my reading corner wall started.  Here is how I left it.
I need to continue with it next week but have to wait for my carpets to dry.  I'm just excited to get working on it. 
on a sad side, when I went in I discovered that my paper mache tree had obviously been knocked over at some point.  one branch, a root and one of the leaf umbrellas were broken.  Thank goodness I went in early as I'll have to try to patch it up.

Hello!  It feels like it's been so long since I've written.  We were away for the long weekend (it was BC day in British Columbia).  I finally was able to get my laptop in to get looked at today and hope to have it fixed in the next week or so.  I am getting really tired of using our old laptop (it doesn't print any "o"s so every time I write an o, I have to paste it in......UGH).  Anyways, I'm also waiting for my other laptop so I can get some work done.
Hopefully tomorrow I can get into my classroom and begin setting up.  I'll take some photos if I manage to get in (it amazes me how I can get busy doing little things around the house).
Anyways, have a great night!

Well, I managed to get my word wall words typed, laminated, and cut yesterday.  If any of you use Primary Success, they are the words from Sight Words 1.  I am hoping to figure out how to save them as a PDF today so that I can share. 
Managed to get my READ letters done as well.  This has been on my to do list since last summer.  Here is a photo!  I love them!
Anyways, if you get a chance, go check out Nikki's latest projects over at Melonheadz Illustrations (see her site on my right hand bar).  She's having a sale this weekend!  Yay!

Well, the past few days haven't been too eventful!  I did manage to find some material for my reading corner, as well as a cute grass table skirt.  The jungle theme is coming into focus. 
I managed to get my own kids' school supplies yesterday.  Today was cleaning day at my house so tomorrow I'll be happy to plug away at school work.  Have a great night!
