It's Back to School Time & Giveaway!


What a WONDERFUL summer it has been! I honestly can’t believe that it is almost over. I have had a wonderful, realaxing, fantastic summer filled with gym time, pool time, reading time, and lots and lots of friend time!

The last few weeks I have been working on my classroom and just enjoying every minute of it. I am looping with my students this year, so it is a bit of a different back to school prep for me. I am really excited to see what this year brings!

I am REALLY excited to show off my classroom to you! I will be doing that in the next few weeks! I went a little #chevroncrazy, but I love it so much! I was so inspired by Maria’s room from www.kindercraze.com.  I love everything about her colorful room, especially her spray painted filing cabinets!


Teachers Pay Teachers is having their BIG Back to School sale on August 4 and 5! My cart is FILLED to the BRIM as I will be teaching 5th Grade for the first time!

I am excited as this summer I spent some time working on a few products for my store!

We are doing a ROAD TRIP theme in fifth grade this year! I love quotes and I love having my students WRITE about them. This product came from that love! 

Check it out Here!


Last December we did a HUGE “Nutcracker” thematic unit with all of the 4th Graders. We read different versions of “The Nutcracker,” we learned about the music and the composer in Music class, and in Art we drew our own Nutcrackers. It was a PRICELESS time.
 
My dear kiddo who is presenting her Lego Story Starter build she did about "The Nutcracker"

President Clark (as we call him!) created his own version of "The Nutcracker" He did such a great job!

One of our favorite activities that we used was a daily journalprompt in December based on the holdiays! It was a great time of writing, but then also sharing about traditions that the students have their families.




My all time favorite product is Crock-Pot Cooking & Writing in the Classroom for The Fall! 




I love cooking and I love writing! This product puts those together. I have found that my students are SO engaged in the writing process with these activities.

I was pretty excited about this feedback I received for this product!


Well, friendswhat is in your cart? What are you looking forward to purchasing? How are you enjoying your last minutes of summer?

I would love to send off at TPT gift card to one lucky winner to use in time for the sale!

  1. I think that back-to-school season is the best time for the teachers and students. For me it means the accumulation of all the power and strength you have from summer and using it to gain new and exciting knowledge at school. That’s why this article has been a blessing personally to me and to all my students as I am definitely will use the freebie you have so generously provided in my lesson plans. I even don’t have to look for a buying paper online service when I have your great activities and worksheets.
