Classroom Move!

Hey there!

So, I am moving classrooms for the next school year. I moved in all my treasures in the spring and chose not to think about it until about a week ago... (pretty good right?!) Well, I wish I would have gotten a true before picture but I thought I would share some of the progress.




So... not too bad... well for an OCDer... I mean organization freak this was not good. HAHA!

I cannot believe I put it off this long. I had the hardest time choosing location of my desk and small group space, etc. I also had a listening center that took up way to much real estate (Until I got an awesome idea...stay tuned)





So, I decided on a small group space, which I love. I am going to set up kiddo work display and Wonders (our ELA curriculum) display.

My favorite IKEA leaves are up and I think I am ditching my giant mailboxes for the green IKEA cubby tubs.

Library is almost ready to go, just need to switch out broken tubs with new ones. I am also trying a new rectangle table out in the library space this year.

Stay tuned for more updates to the room. Wish me luck!

Brain Escape

Hey there!

I'm sure like me many of you have busy lives jammed pack with work and just plain life. Sometimes I feel like I'm being pulled in so many directions that even my beloved lists can't help. Sometimes I just need a brain escape. Today I took my boys out in the front yard with some toys and brought my pruning sheers (aka my everything scissors) and cut all the dead daisies off the bushes. Pruning... Not your thing? Well it wasn't mine until I did it and realized how mindless it was... 1. Find plant with dead flowers 2. Remove dead flower 3. Don't zone out too much that you cut off fingers.

It was mindless and it had a great end results.  My plants look cleaner and beautiful and I had no brain freedom for 15 to 20 minutes....amazing.

There's Never Any Time!

Hey there!

So, I just got back from the TPT Vegas conference that was jam packed with tons of great information and it was super inspiring. So since I have been back I have been trying to pack in some work and social media time... but wait I have two small, adorable, busy, talkative boys. HA HA.... so probably like many of you my only choice is late nights. I heard the question over and over again... "Where do you find the time?" So my goal is to establish some routines. Maybe get up earlier instead of sleeping in until 7:30?! Who knows, but this mama needs to get some sleep! Here's to getting organized with my time.
