The April Packet and My Husband's Debut!


I know I have all but disappeared as of late.  Things have been extra busy with student teachers in my classroom and preparations for a big trip.  In just a few hours I will hop on my first plane and head to England with James!  I am beyond excited, having never really traveled anywhere besides Disneyland and a few National Parks.  Here's to some firsts!





I will be gone for a few weeks and so I wanted to get the April Packet out there in case you are in need of a few extra April resources.  Here are some of my favorite pages.










































You can purchase The April Packet right here.  It is on sale!


And the super exciting thing about all of this is that it features a lot of James's illustrations!  He made his first clipart pack and is selling it on my TpT store.  Check it out right here!







Aren't they adorable?  He does such a good job!

Okay, time for some sleep before that first flight.  I'm a little bit nervous, to be honest.  But, oh so excited for the adventures ahead!

Freshening up my Bulletin Boards


I am so sorry that I have all but entirely disappeared! James and I are headed to England in a few days (our first real trip!) and I have been up to my ears in trip plans, not to mention sub plans... 





Things have been crazy daisy around here and I do not have a fabulously exciting blog post of incredible and inspiring teaching ideas.  Sorry.  I do, however, have some inspiring new bulletin boards up!  A little while ago sweet Heather from Creative Teaching Press offered to let me try out some of their brand new classroom decor items!  










I was THRILLED to receive this package. Have you seen all of their adorable new stuff?  I can hardly wait to use it in my classroom next year!  In fact, I couldn't wait and I decided to freshen up a few of my existing bulletin boards.  It was like the spring cleaning of bulletin boards.  And it felt great!  The peppy colors and patterns make me smile whenever I look at them.  Take a look! By the way, forgive the darkish quality of these late-night phone pics...I am hoping for a new camera any day!










This is my multi-purpose board used to display whatever we don't have space for elsewhere in the room.  Aren't those spring cut-outs so fun?










I love these chevron letters and I used them throughout the room to label the boards.








 This lime green chevron is probably my favorite of the Creative Teaching Press borders!








I love the Dots on Turquoise!  Reading Strategies here.










My Math Wall definitely needed a facelift.  We just began our unit on measurement and will use this board to display anchor charts, vocabulary words, and whatever else we may need to display and remember.










There you have it!  I hope to post one more time before I head off on my first real adventures.  Be on the lookout for the The April Packet and an exciting announcement!  Have a great night!

March Currently

I am so happy that it is March.  What with end-of-trimester grades due this week and other assorted craziness lately, it is nice to put February behind me and look forward to what is coming up next! Time for Farley's Currently Linky...







Listening: I gave in and bought the Saving Mr. Banks soundtrack this week and I am so grateful that I did!  I have been playing it on shuffle in my classroom all week!  I am convinced it has a calming influence on my cute students. :)





Loving: Spring is almost within reach and I am so very excited for the freshness and warmth that it will bring.  I love snow and freezing rain as much as the next Utahn, but I really could use some fresh Vitamin D.





Thinking: James is turning 25 and I'm hoping to make it a happy day for him! It is always hard to shop for an artist, but I'll see what I can come up with...





Wanting: My dad is away on business in California and my mom went to join him.  My school is pretty close to my parent's house and I love to stop by after school occasionally and just vent to Mama.  Come home soon, mum!





Needing: I am excited to do some spring cleaning, at home and perhaps in my classroom as well. 





????????: My latest project that is finally wrapped up and ready to be put to work in my classroom! By the way, it is on sale now and I am giving a few away over at this post.










Happy March!
