Grandparents Day Printable


Nothing cuter than a little one dressed up as a grandparent!  We had fun playing dress up, and imagining my almost three year old as a senior citizen.  It was just as humorous to hear his answers to the questions below.  He hopes to sing to Veggie Tales, eat Chick Fil a, and visit Toys R Us when he's a grandparent.

You're Going to ROCK! Bathroom Mirror Sign


Who doesn't need a little pep talk on the first day of school?  I know I do!  What better way to start the day than as a ROCKSTAR!  Print this out and hang it to your kids' bathroom mirror (or the teacher in your life) as a reminder of how awesome they're going to be on their first day!

P.S. It's my first day back tomorrow, and I sure hope I'm a rockstar this year!

The school supply aisles are filled with fun colorful finds like composition notebooks, folders, binders, and more.  All to coordinate with these cool and warm tones. We found these adorable composition notebooks at Wal-mart. So fun & fresh sure to brighten up your student desks, and make learning a little more fun!

Organization is key when starting out a new school year.  We love how these bright binder covers turn ordinary to extraordinary! Just print them and slide them into any clear pocket binder.

Storage crates and supply bins share in on the pops of color! These adorable berry baskets were found at Wal-mart, we just added some colorful ribbon ( Hobby Lobby) and the tags from the Red & Aqua Classroom Collection.

The combination of dots and chevron will catch the eye of the students right away, as well as parents and teachers!

A Few Things All About Me: A Student Sneak Peek!

In a couple of weeks both of my boys will head off to the world of preschool and daycare while I head back to the classroom.  It's always a hard transition from summer to school year, but one that is rewarding and beneficial in so many ways.  I've been anxious about others knowing all the little things that go without saying around our house.  Like that my children answer to a dozen nicknames, or that my two year old has to be reminded to use his inside voice (a lot, just like his mama!).  As a teacher, I love knowing things that make my students unique right from the start of the school year. So, I am tucking these sheets in with their first day items so that the teacher has a little sneak peek into what I think are two pretty special little guys!
