Summer Time!

Today was our last day of school!  One day longer than we thought, thanks to Old Man Winter.  If you've been following me, you know we moved into a brand new school this winter, which is awesome!  We greatly enjoyed the new building and all the new technology.  This last week, I have totally loved the cabinets and shelving!  Never have I gotten packed up and put away so quickly.  Each day I would put a little more away.  By today there wasn't much left to do.  Now I will also admit that after purging with each move, there was a little less to put away.  But you guys know all the stuff we teachers have no matter how much we go through stuff.

Now of course, as the school year ends, teachers' minds involuntarily start thinking of next year.  We just can't help it.  So I've decided on a monkey/jungle theme.  And I big thank you in advance to Krista Wallden of Creative Clips, Scrappin Doodles, and Melonheadz for all their cute monkey graphics.  I will be working on all sorts of monkey stuff for my room over the summer so be sure to check in frequently.

For now, I've started with behavior management sticker chart/punch cards.  At our new school we have tables.  No more desks so no more desk tags.  There isn't room on the tables for regular size desk tags, so I had to improvise this year.  I ended up using their sticker charts as their name tags.  So I have made new sticker charts for next year, with a nice space in the middle for the kids' names.  These charts would also work well as punch cards since the sticker spaces are all along the outside edges.

For a limited time, these cute little charts will be FREE on my Teacher's Pay Teachers store.  Here's to a great summer.
