Finally...I did it!

Okay, it may have taken me awhile (or as my son says hours and hours and hours) but I finally figured out how to put things I made for sale on Teachers Pay Teachers.  I even added the button on my blog!!!  Yeah me!!!

I hope you click on my button to see the new items I put on there to sell.  I have only a few right now, but 2 of them are free (oh is good)!

Please let me know if I need to change, edit, or add anything.  I appreciate any and all feedback.

It's Hot!

I can't believe how hot it is.  Waiting for the temperature to reach 102.  Gotta love Chicago in the summer! 

For the past two weeks, I have been working on my school's new principal selection committee.  We just put in our recommendation yesterday.  I hope it all goes forward...I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Since it's too hot to go anywhere or even go into the pool, my son and I are playing Mario Party 9.  In between games, I'm trying to work on some new ideas for my classroom.  I have a some things I want to put on here for freebies as soon as... 1) I figure it out how to do it and 2) I'm brave enough to do it!

Two New Projects

Here are two projects I finished over the weekend. 

These are my name sticks.  Saw it on Pinterest…of course! I always had name sticks that I kept in a coffee mug I had printed from Vista Print, but I never thought of having two colors.  I would call student’s names and rubber band those sticks together so I didn’t call on them again, to give everyone a chance.  Well, now with the help of my soon to be 7 year old son, here are my new sticks.  When you call a student's name, you turn over the stick to show the other color.  How smart, huh?  We had so much fun painting them!  He was ready for the next project, which was….

my scratch off tickets.  I entered a contest on Tonya’s Treats for Teachers blog to win a set of scratch off tickets that she would create in a style I wanted (I love her!).  Well, never in a million years did I think I was going to win.  I am so new to this blogging and contest stuff, that I wasn’t even sure I entered the contest right.  But I won!  She is making me a wonderful set of mystery scratch off tickets to go with my theme for this year.  I can’t wait to see them! 

In the meantime, my son and I were on a roll with painting so….we continued on.  He helped me make these too.  I will keep these to use the following year and use my cool mystery ones coming from Tonya this year, but it was fun to make them. I should have painted the entire paint bubble, but my son said the kids would want to see where the bubble was to see where the words were.  I guess he had an idea and we just went with it.  If you go to her blog, she has the step by step directions on how to make them.  If my son and I could figure out how to make them, so can you!

What I Want to Make

I am going to add some projects I want to make this summer from Pinterest.  Let's see if this works! 

Mrs. Freshwater's Class: Classroom Organization Take 4 “Where Are We?” Love this idea!    

Kinder-Craze: Fancy Up Your Sterlite Drawers

Once I make my own, I will post pictures.

I did it!

Well...I finally did it.  I am taking a class this summer and it required me to make a blog.  I've been wanting to do this for a long time, so I'm happy I was "forced" to do so.  I will update my blog with exciting things that happen in my third grade classroom, as soon as I figure out how to do it!
