Rock star calendar numbers

I've been a busy bee (like all my other teacher friends out there) getting things ready to go for school. Here are the Rock Star calendar numbers I created to go with my Rock Star theme!

A Few Random Freebies...

Hello bloggie friends! Just wanted to share a few things with you. I'm finally getting into this back to school thing. I'm going to school again tomorrow. My goal is to finish up by Friday so I don't have to go back next week (We don't start until the 31st with students and the 29 in-service).  My Facebook status tonight says....
Tonight a teacher somewhere in your neighborhood is getting ready for your child's new school year, writing lesson plans or writing your child's name in their grade book, while you are watching television. In the minute it takes you to read this, teachers all over the world are using their "free time," and often investing their own time & money for your child's literacy, prosperity, and future. 
So true! Cheers to all my teacher friends out there! :)  
Anyway.... on with the sharing.... I've had quite a few people inquire about the labels I used for the ROCKSTAR binder. I have attached them for you. :) (click on each pic to download).
Note: I didn't write this. I simply adapted it to fit my classroom. I believe the original version came from Christina Bainbridge. (LOVE HER!)
 I'm in the process of reorganizing my classroom (cleaning out shelves, closets, filing cabinets, etc.) While doing this I decided to relabel all of my "special bins" that hold my holiday and seasonal goodies. I don't know if anyone can use them, but I am including the file just incase there is someone out there!  The file below is like 50 pages long. The latter pages are for my copy paper organization. After my copies come back from the copy lady (we send everything for the whole year) I organize everything by story and unit. This is so helpful so when I am preparing for a unit or week, I simply grab the stack of papers and go. I put all of the copies in the plastic filing bins. (Click on the pics to download the freebies! :)

Summer Lovin'

I'm still alive! It's been forever since I've posted! I've been a busy bee this summer! Projects, projects, and projects.... Here are just a few.

An owl I just finished. I'm going to use it as a questioning owl. I think I am going to attach speech bubbles that say: Who, What, When, etc.

The above picture is a work in progress. We are having a garage sale at our house this weekend so I am sitting here painting.  This is a wooden cubby. I plan on using it for small group reading groups. We use the Treasures reading series. My approaching group kiddos are the apples (red) the onlevel group are the oranges (orange), the beyond group are the bananas (yellow). If I have a fourth group, they are the kiwis. This just helps me remember the level and the color.

I repainted and got new goodies for one of our guest bathrooms.

My husband and I LOVE to garden and plant things! We're regulars at Lowes clearance plant section! Ha! Ha! We have lots of places to plant things. This summer we planted lots of perennials.

Jewelry I made for my friend's wedding.

We are in the process of bricking a sidewalk from our deck to our driveway. We're not finished yet! It's in the works.

On another school note....for all you Dr. Seuss fans...Target now has their Dr. Seuss things in the $1 section. I LOVE stocking up on these things for our Dr. Seuss reading cafe! (Click to find it on TPT).

Just a few back to school must haves....
I love this book to introduce fractions, but it is no longer in print. I ended up finding it for 98 cents online! Wahoo!

So I am on the chart marker band wagon. I just had to pick up a pack of these markers that everyone in blog land is ranting and raving about (Thanks Abby and Deanna!) :)

Finally, I think I have decided on my classroom theme for next year (I have been changing for the past four years...this will probably be the last new one before I start rotating). I have done team theme, hollywood, western, jungle... and now.... DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!!

A few of the treasures I've found.

It was between this and Pirate/Nautical, but I found more stuff for this!

I think that is all I have to share for now! I plan on posting again later! :)
