I am getting so excited to get into my room and start decorating. I can't wait to try out my new theme for this year....... PIRATES!! I made a pirate last night, he still needs some work, but I like the way he turned out and I saw the cutest stop light voice cues at the Learning Parade (see her post here) and knew I just had to do them in a Pirate Theme! Thank you Caroline for inspiring me. You totally rock!
You can click here to get them for free.
Please leave feedback if you download them!!
I was also inspired by Beg Borrow and Steal's post that I ran down to Michaels at 8:30 last night knowing they close at 9:00 and it takes 20 minutes to get there to buy the Pirate Wall Stickers but they didn't have them! I was so disappointed when I got in my car (thank goodness for my new iphone) that I looked up the number to our other Michaels and called them after store hours and to my surprise they answered the phone and the lady was so sweet she even went and looked for me, but they were sold out! (that was one long sentence!) So hopefully they will get some more in before school starts! I love them.
Today I am picking up my carpet roll from Home Depot to make my Chicka Tree. I can't wait. I also am going to attempt to make some crate chairs for my classroom, of course in a Pirate Theme if I can find some cute fabric. Now if a wood fairy could just come down and leave the wood I need to buy on my front door step I would be so happy! :)
Here are my kids work folders. I decided this year to give the boys one and the girls one. I have my Friday Folders done too, but I can't find them now! Oh no! I put them under something to help them lay flat after I laminated them, now I can't remember where I put them. I seriously would lose my head if it wasn't attached most days. I better get looking for those! I will post a picture when I find them. Well, summer is coming to a close and I am so sad, but excited to meet my new little ones. I wish I could keep this beautiful weather all year long. I am NOT a winter person at all! Give me 100 degree weather everyday and I would be SO happy.
Time to get busy doing some things that need to get finished!
