Back to School=Nesting?

I swear when it comes to Back to School time, it's almost like nesting for me. My house has to be clean to return to school, because, honestly, it won't be clean again until the holidays. I just never have the energy! I'm hoping with the lack of a commute now this issue will improve greatly. But honestly, this is what I'm doing today:

On top of that, I'm greeting my cart together for Monday and Tuesday! That's right,mBack to School sale is finally here!!

I am beyond excited to grab my list AND to give an extra treat to anyone who purchases during the sale from my store!!!

Freebie Round Up Time

Part of my getting ready for school ritual is definitely looking for new freebies on TPT to use for the new year. I wanted to share some of my new favorites with you! Please leave a comment with a link to your favorite in the bottom (a lucky someone will get a copy of my Kissing Hand Activity Pack!)

These posters are adorable and the perfect size to use in a classroom!

These are everywhere right now and I can't wait to be able to do them now! Kindergarten isn't really IN compatible. 

Hello Science activity!!! 

I'm seeing an assignment where students create a Fakebook page for important historical people in Social Studies. 

Love these wonderful vocabulary pages!!

Click and grab these for yourself! Don't forget to leave a comment below to let me know the freebie you have found this summer!

My oh my!

This summer has simply flown by! I can't believe that July only has another week or so left. Is anyone else in full Back-to-School swing? I have just this week left until I can get into my classroom. I can not wait to set up my new room! I've already been busy planning and looking for wonderful ideas to implement in my new 5th grade class.

I just found out the other day that along with Social Studies, I will also be teaching Science. I am really, really excited about all of the wonderful experiments my students (and I) will be getting to do this year! Cue the music-

(I'm so excited and I just can't hide it!!)

It might be cheesy but I know that I am so, so thrilled and blessed to be able to take on this wonderful new opportunity!!

Back to School Already?

While most of the other TPT sellers are headed to Vegas ( so jealous!! ), I decided to begin the dreaded shopping. Last year was my first year of shopping as a parent... And I dont think I did so hot at it. So this year it is my goal to do better. With that in mind, I decided to head to Office Depot to check out their penny sales that started today. Here's my great shopping haul:

Pretty great for only $8.17!! The penny deals this week are the folders (with and without prongs), index cards, and erasers. So a glad to be taking things off the list a little at a time! Have you done any shopping yet? Any great deals?

All packed up :(
