Well I finally did it! I posted my very first item to TpT! It's been a goal of mine all summer to figure this out in hopes that it would inspire me to create stuff and
pay off my house support my teaching habit. I in no way shape or form think that this is ground breaking territory here, but I shared an item that I made last year that all my fellow teaching buddies at school ask for copies of. They are calendars we put in our school agendas to help out with home/school communication. Click right here! if you would like grab them for FREE at Tpt!
I loaded them as docs instead of pdf's so you can add in the holidays you want or any special days at school. I am also using them as my 'appointment' calendars for Daily 5 in the notebook I made today. School starts Friday for the teachers and my little gals and guys arrive next Wednesday! Busy, busy, busy the next few days getting ready and doing Back to School conferences with all my parents. Phew! I'm tired just thinking about it!
My room is looking awesome! I have spent more time than ever in my classroom this summer but the time has really paid off as school approaches. I feel so calm and relaxed while everyone else is buzzing around trying to get stuff organized. Here are a few pics I snapped the other day.
|This is the view from my student tables looking at the front door. The door that is open leads to a shared area with 1 of our other 1st grade teachers. We put our computers in there to have a mini computer lab.|
|This is the view of the front of my room. I just finished adding my awesome primary polka dot word wall from Erica Bohrer. I love her stuff on TpT! My room is full of her stuff!|
|Did I mention I have a kitchen? Oh yes, I have a kitchen!|
|I mentioned in an earlier post I got rid of my huge horseshoe table and replaced it with this cute little table for conferring. I love it, although my knees hit the edge when I sit at it, I may need to raise it just a bit!|
Have a fabulous rest of the week and I hope your planning is going well for the upcoming school year!
Happy Teaching ~Heather
