Back to School Festivities !

It is back to school time!! Wahoo!! I have some AmAziNg

 contributors who offered some great items to me and my 

classroom for my back to school blog!!

I find that at the beginning of the year
 we need to come in strong and keep 
the momentum up for the next 9 months!
Starting off on the right foot is key! I love making 
the parents feel welcome, students feel welcome 
as well as my staff in my room!
Here are some amazing ideas that YOU
 can do in your own classroom!

I would first like to thank them for all
 their hard work and amazing hearts! 
Please check them out on their webpages, 
blogs and etsy shops! 
They are some talented ladies!!

At my open house I love having a few snacks 
for the kids and parents! Bunco Betty sent me these
super cute tags and bags! I filled them up with 
yummy treats and will be handing them out to my

I will have my typical packets for each parent to take
before having them sit down to talk about the events for the year!

If you are interested in my 
ABC's to My Classroom or any of my other open house sheets head to my
 TPT  (teachers pay teachers) account and get your own!

I believe all teachers need to stay hydrated throughout the day! And why not use a cute bottle to drink out of? A to Z Vinyl Creations made me this super cute bottle!

Introducing A to Z Vinyl Creations:

 A to Z Vinyl Creations was kind enough to send me one of these water bottles for me! I feel that teachers are constantly on the go and always forget to hydrate throughout the day! Having a cute water bottle on your desk not only reminds you of what you do everyday but all that we need to take care of ourselves too! At the beginning of the year we are so excited and need to keep that momentum throughout the year!!

I love how mine came out!!

For my teaching assistants every year I give them an early thank you in September to thank them for all their hard work that they are going to do for me and my students throughout the year! I made these super cute bags and found this tag on a blog my friend Kelly showed me! 

I thought this was a great way to say 
"Thank you" in advance and it was super cute idea!!!
I placed all "bright" objects in the bag to go with
the theme! Post-its, highlighter, water bottle, tabs,
starbursts and thank you notes!

Speaking of notes...


Every teacher has a million notes that 
they write throughout the year! Why not 
write them on cute paper?? Lets Party Nola 
made this super cute notepad for my desk!

to start my year off right! 

As a teacher we write so many notes! 

Whether it is to parents, co-wokers  or even to ourselves

 we are constantly writing notes!

I am obsessed with my new pad!!

I also think thank you notes are SUPER important for a teacher! Between all the cute gifts 
you may get at the beginning, middle or end of the year I think it is really important to thank your kiddies and their parents!!
