Schoolgirl Style

Since I am in a new school and new classroom this year, I thought it would be fun to do a new theme.  Lucky for me I found Schoolgirl Style on Pinterest.  She has THE CUTEST themes put together for us!  It was so hard to pick one, but after much deliberation I decided on the Rainbow Collection!  

Picture taken from Schoolgirl Style

I just love all the bright colors!  It looks like such a bright, happy and inviting room!  I'm hoping to get my room all decorated and put together by the end of this weekend, and I'll be sure to post some pictures to show you how it turned out.  Hopefully by the end of the year, my room will look as cute as hers!  If you're looking for something to spice up your room, go check her out!

In Love!

Guess what came in the mail this weekend???




My Erin Condren Life Planner!!!!!  I love it so much!

I also bought the pens to go with it.  Now I'm a color crazy woman!

First page 

Birthdays and Anniversaries 

Small full year calendar 

One month calendars 

Week by week, with a large spot for morning, day, and night. 

Lined note pages

Blank note pages

True dat, Mr. Mackay!

Important numbers 

Addresses

Pre-made stickers

Blank stickers

Envelope

Zipper pouch


Beautiful laminated tabs!  

She also has a variety of teacher materials, but I preferred the Life Planner for my scheduling.  Simply because I lesson plan and grade electronically, so it didn't seem as valuable to me.  

Now that you love it, too, would you like to get one for half price, or better yet... FREE?  Here are two blogs hosting an Erin Condren giveaway!

Taking the Plunge

I've taken the plunge and joined Facebook!  I know, like I need another technological device to keep up on, but I think this will be an easier way to keep parents {and other followers} informed of upcoming events and blog updates.  So come on over and check it out!      



In order to keep things professional, if I am currently teaching your child, please don't add me as a personal  friend on Facebook.  Thanks!



Catch Up

Since I am a little ocd, I like the posts to be in order of how they happened, so I've listed all my catch up posts throughout the year.  I CAN'T BELIEVE how much I missed!  I am definitely going to stay on top of it better this year.  :)  I'll link the posts to this page, as soon as they are published.  So keep checking back.

2013 Calendars!

{Click here to purchase the updated version of this product.}

I am SO sorry for taking so long to get these calendars for you all!  I have to admit, I was a little overwhelmed with all the emails and comments looking for the 2013 Calendars.  I planned on doing it earlier this summer, but I haven't had much of a break yet.  Then I realized I didn't have Microsoft Publisher on my computer anymore (my favorite calendar making program).  But thanks to Thinking Mama I found this site and whipped them up for you!  


I print the poems on 2x4 labels.  Much easier to assemble and they look a lot cleaner.  :) 



An anonymous blogger said:  "We do a Kissing Hand unit, we paint the child's hand and put a heart shaped sticker in the palm. It comes out perfect with a heart right in the center. Just an added idea for the Valentine page."











Enjoy!
