Race to the first day of school!

        Well, in May and June I always feel like it's a race to the finish.  Now, it's the end of summer and here I am working at that insane pace again!  Between mentoring a new teacher and attending meetings with him, preparing my room, planning units, and LOTS of activity on the homefront, I am just about fried.  Maybe I'll be able to rest when the kids start!!  Ha ha!

        Here are some pictures of the progress I've made in my room.  I'm trying very hard to stay get very organized, so it's a slower go than usual.  But, one of my New Year's resolutions was to get organized and I guess I'm sticking to it:)

        I've just uploaded a few new products to my TPT store and cannot wait to use them with my kiddos.  Check them out:

       Both of these centers will also be included in a larger packet I am creating, full of Houghton Mifflin First Grade Theme 1 Resources.  Here's a sneak peak at only some of what will be included.  Look for it in my TPT store on Sunday.

        Speaking of Sunday, my store will be 20% off all day Sunday and Monday.  Combine that with this coupon code for extra savings: BTS12 
Check out who else is particpating at

        Have a great weekend!  Happy shopping at TPT!  I can't wait to load up on lots of back to school resources.  Keep sparkling!
