Alphabet Game Freebie!

Hey everyone! Just a quick note tonight...I just made my first ever fan freebie on Facebook! Head over to my page to check out my "I Have...Who Has?" ABC Game. This is a great game to play with your whole class early in the year to practice the alphabet. All you have to do is like my Facebook page to get it for free!

Enjoy! I'll be back soon with more goodies and back to school ideas!

Classroom Library & Lesson Plans

Hi friends! Okay, so I know I should be enjoying summer vacation, but I am so excited to get into my classroom to start organizing! Waiting another month will be agonizing for me, so I figured I'd get a head start working on whatever I can from home. Today I started working on my classroom library organization. I printed out my book basket labels and I also made matching stickers for the books, which will make it so much easier for the kids to keep everything organized! I'm thrilled with how these turned out!

If you like these, you can pick them up in my TpT store!

We also had our first PD day a couple weeks ago and it was so exciting to meet the other teachers I'll be working with! Since we're a small new school, there will only be four of us next year. We had a great time ordering furniture and materials, looking at curriculum, and planning out our daily schedule! Since I got my daily schedule, I was able to begin updating my lesson plan format. This is just a quick sample I made up and it will be more detailed once I get all the curriculum materials. I will post a complete version at some point when I've got the whole year planned out! If you're interested, you can download the template HERE

We have our next meeting in about a week, so I'm looking forward to doing some more planning and learning more details about my new school! I'll keep you all updated :)
