***I love the border and numbers I got from two bloggers I follow, the 3am Teacher and A Cupcake for the Teacher! Gotta LOVE freebies!!!!!!!!!
First, is my "Where Are You?" board. My kids feel a real responsibility to make sure that they always move their number before they leave the classroom! Love it!
Here is my "How Do I Get Home?" clothespin line! (without the clothespins on it!)
My number sticks! I use these for my classroom jobs and for my "Pick A Stick" bucket for when I need to choose a random student for something.
This isn't a great picture, but I got this set of drawers from a coworker and I have too many students this year to use them. There just aren't' enough drawers for them! But there sure are enough for me! :-)
I printed out labels for each drawer saying what is in them. Love it! No more scrambling around for my white out!
In a previous blog I wrote about the S.T.A.R notebooks that I was going to begin using this year! I finally got all of the binders I needed and then got in my order of tabs! I spent last weekend opening 30 packages, writing on 150 tabs, ripping them apart and sliding them where they're supposed to go! It was a long process but well worth it! My students are super organized so far and it's making life easier on them as well as me!
I also blogged recently about a board I made for our Meet the Teacher night! I decided to stop buying everything myself this year and to begin asking some of my parents for help! Some of them actually decided to help! I have gotten lots of extra paper, hand sanitizer and even iTunes gift cards for our class sets of iPads!!!!!
Here is a picture of it after Meet the Teacher! Pretty good considering I teach in a school that is 90%+ below the poverty line...
And lastly, a picture of my beautiful sister and I! We went to a wedding reception over the weekend and got to get all dressed up! I'm so thankful to have her as my sister!

School has gone SOOOO much better this week than last week. Regardless of that, I am still super excited that the 3 day weekend is coming up quickly!
