Busy Day


I am working really, really hard  trying to cross things off my 3 page to-do list. I woke up at 5:30 this morning and got to work on my projects.


Here are my postcards I sent out to my students today. I don’t have a “theme” for my classroom but I am using these cute little “alien guys” and “Out of this World” items on a few things- but not for everything.


I packed up my birthday treat bags. These are not anything fancy at all. I got those precious little cutouts at the Dollar Tree a few weeks ago. I used red and pink bags and stuffed them with this stuff below…


Nothing fancy.. certificate, sticker, fun dip, chocolate, erasers and a pencil. You can see how I did birthdays last year by clicking {here}.


I shared this little color organization idea from Mrs. Squirrels a few months ago.. I labeled my drawers and separated my colors this morning. This is either going to be a huge lifesaver OR the death of me.. We will see in a few weeks.


I dropped by the school for a little while this morning and did a few small projects. I copied my handwriting practice sheets. I came home and started binding them this afternoon.


Christie at First Grade Fever is doing a fun freebie week.. where she will showcase freebies from other blogs. She featured me today- and has links to a couple of my Brown Bear freebies.

Check her out {here}.

  9. The post cards are adorable and your kiddos must love those birthday treats!

    I was also wondering which font you used on your "Handwriting Practice" cover.
