Changes! Changes everywhere! It has been a HOT MINUTE since I last posted. It is because I have been as sick as a dog, BUT it has been for good reason. I am expecting our second baby! If I am not found on the couch sipping a ginger ale, I am usually napping when my daughter is asleep. It has been a rough one... let me tell ya, second pregnancy has been no joke for me. Enough about me though.... I am ready and eager to jump back into some Classroom Management Monday posts (and get back to creating some products to help you out)! Today I want to talk a bit about what is happening in our country. You guys, a big change in education is happening … [Read more...] about Changes In Education
Have you read my "about me" page? If so, you know that I had a really bad year about five years ago. I was AWFUL. That summer I did an insane amount of researching to make sure that it would never happen again... Enter: the best book about behavior management EVER. Ever. How I got to this book: When I say "research" I mean I sat on my computer and searched and searched for resources about classroom and behavior management. There were some blog posts, and there were some olllld college textbook type books but nothing really concrete. Just ideas. I did notice that a super old video of Ron Clark with Oprah kept popping up. (Do yourself a favor … [Read more...] about Best Book about Behavior Management
Yesterday was one of those days where it feels like being a mom is the best job ever.. Last year my good friend Melissa and I saw a post about the 12 days of Christmas Boxes which is basically brilliance in my mind. While the activities planned are a little above where our kiddos are right now, we decided to pick a few themes and celebrate together. Our goal is to eventually work up to having these boxes for the kiddos. Actually, I think my personal goal is to have something for every day starting December 1st until Christmas Eve. Anyway, yesterday was Snowmen and I hosted! It was so much fun bringing out the teacher in me and prepping for … [Read more...] about Snowman Day
You guyyyyysssss.... I have not had THIS much anticipation about something in a long while. Becca from Jumping Jax Designs finished my blog design and I seriously could not love it more. I get little hearts in my eyes every time I look at it. And can we all acknowledge what a huge rockstar Becca is??? She went into labor early, had her baby, and still made it a point to finish it all up. I told her to not to worry about it because I KNOW how crazy the first few weeks are. It didn't break her stride. Seriously, this woman is all kinds of amazing. Not only did I get this BEAUTIFUL blog-face-lift, but I finished a product that is currently my absolute … [Read more...] about New blog design and my favorite new product!
Today I am linking up with Just Reed, Pawsitively Teaching, and Inspired Owl's Corner to share some of my Pinterest finds for back to school finds. . I came across this post when looking for ideas for my daughter to change up her lunch a little bit. I am horrible at lunch ideas. Seriously though, I wish I had this when I was teaching. Forget the kiddos... I am the one that wants to eat these lunches. LOL! I was always looking for ways to save money setting up my classroom. I was also a huge fan of themes!!! How freaking cute is this?!?!? There are also SO MANY possibilities with this booklet!!!! I can't … [Read more...] about PICK 3!
Summer is quickly slipping away from us! Am I the only crazy one that is sooooo excited for Fall???? Brisk days, sweaters, apple cider, coziness, my list could go on and on. That list happens to include a new blog design! Whhhhaaaaaat?! I decided to make the investment and dive right in. The lovely and talented Becca at Jumping Jax Designs will be starting my design in a couple of weeks and I am so eager to see how it turns out.
