Spotted in First Grade

So, I've officially been back at the teaching game since August 6.  Can I just state that I AM EXHAUSTED!  Every year I seem to discount exactly how tiring the first of the school year can be. Between prepping your classroom , Meet the Teacher Night, actually teaching your new students, and managing your own household... I'm tired just typing that!  I have Curriculum Night in a few days and I'm hoping when that is history I will finish readjusting to teacher life.  I miss summer but I am excited for this school year.  I've got a great bunch of firsties that I get the honor of working with.  Sigh.  Smile. And now for a peek at the back to school board I showcased...
My teacher bud had a parent give her a stack of pre-cut circular scrapbook paper.  She came to me asking for an idea to use it.  I started bouncing around ideas and I came up with "SPOTTED... Great work".  She wanted an area to display her students' work you see.  Well, I then liked my thought so much that I created a bulletin board that read "SPOTTED in first grade".  I emailed my students' parents and requested that they send me a photo of their firstie.  I then displayed the photos inside the dots that I cut with my handy dandy Silhouette machine.  Anyway, I was proud of myself so I wanna show it all off.  Sometimes we all gotta give ourselves some props you know! ;). What will your back to school board look like?

Vegas Baby, Vegas

I had the opportunity to attend the Teachers Pay Teachers first ever conference at the Venetian in Las Vegas on July 11.  I had so much fun seeing what the teaching blog stars look like in real life and learning how to be more successful at blogging and selling on TPT.  I met a few new blogging friends and I feel renewed to blog more.  Anyway, it was a cool experience and in honor of the TPT conference I have a few freebies....

Classroom Subway Art available in four slightly different color palettes....

Right click on any of the above images and save them to your computer.  I like to then send the file to Costco's photo department and then have it printed out there.  I designed the subway art to print out as an 8x10 or a 16x20 print.  Enjoy!
