August ... Yikes!!

Busy Friday morning! We took Miss Rebekah to the daycare she will be starting at when I go back to work *sob*. After clinging to me for a few minutes she got down and was playing. As a matter of fact when I took the toys away from her and we left she started screaming. I am hoping she will be okay once she is there without me. Then we went to Old Navy. Let me see there are some awesome Back to School sales! The girls got lots of school clothes.

It is August .... 19 more days until I have to report back. I have been using my new laminator (OMG) and it is so wonderful. I was like a little kid at Christmas as I was laminating stuff for school. Crazy glue was also really helpful as I put together my classroom numbers and Brain Break cards. My husband finished the last piece of furniture for my classroom. I am saving that for Monday Made It. Remember that Creative Teaching Press contest I talked about before? Well I was one of ten winners that received $50 worth of CTP stuff. So exciting!

I am linking up with Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade for this month's Currently.

I am bound and determined to create something for my TPT store. I've been experimenting with making things for my room using the new frames and borders I bought. I was thinking of a back to school themed unit. We will see how that goes. There is still so much to do before we all go back to school. I'm waiting and watching diligently to see when Walmart and Target have the really good school supply sales. Is it wrong that I get all giddy when those two words (school supplies) are mentioned?

On a last note - make sure to stop by Christina's TPT store and pick up the Collaborative First Day Handbook. It started as a shared Goggle Doc on her blog. Now it is a great handbook full of tips and routines from experienced teachers. If you have time, check out the blogs of the participating teachers.

Have a super Friday!
