Monday Made It - Woodland and Monsters

It's Monday again and it's hard to believe that the month of June is almost over! Last year I created woodland themed labels for my classroom.  I actually shared them for Monday Made It last summer!

 Here are a couple of those pictures:

I ran out of time last summer to put all the labels together but I got a chance to get them done this week and here they are:
Labels available HERE
My second made it has been on my list for many months.  My awesome friend asked me long ago if I could make her some monster labels for her classroom after she saw my woodland themed ones.  They are making me want to go with a monster theme :-)
Labels available HERE

Have you been busy creating and crafting?  Make sure to link up for Monday Made It!


Monster Time!

I think that one of my favorite things about summer is catching up on requests I have for products.  I love to create but I don't have much time for it during the school year.  The summer means I can tackle my list.

One of my top requests was for a set of monster themed labels.  I got to work and here they are:

If you are interested in them, they are available by clicking the picture below:


3-2-1 Teacher Bio Link Up

Happy Saturday!  It's time to join the Weekend Warriors for a fun link up!  We want to learn about you so make sure to grab the images at the bottom of the post and tell us about yourself with a 3-2-1 Bio :-)

1. I taught second grade for seven years and moved down to first last year.  I was so sure that second grade was my all time favorite grade, but I have to say that first grade is so much fun too!  My favorite thing about first grade is seeing my 6 year olds become actual readers and know that it's happening because of what we are doing in class.  It's a thrill!

2.  My passion for decorating my classroom has grown tremendously thanks to blogs, Instagram, and Pinterest.   I make sure to go in a little early in the summer and get things set up the way I want them.  One thing I've noticed is that when my classroom decorated, I end up putting things in strategic places and that means things are organized.  And oh my!  My year is so much smoother when I am organized.  

3. I hope I'm not the only one with this issue.  I have a love/hate relationship with teaching writing.  Math is easy, it's black and white and you can teach different ways to get to an answer, but the answer will always be the answer.  It's not like that with writing.  Teaching children how to write is NOT easy, but I do have to say that reading my kids' writing is my favorite part of my day.  Especially when they are sharing their writer's workshop writing for the day.

1. I'm sure I'm not the only one, but I have a total Netflix obsession!  When doing anything, I have Netflix going on in the background.  And, I am known to go through an entire run of a show in a matter of days.  Summer=Netflix Binge Watching!

2. It all started with an iPod many years ago, and when you add just one more gadget and you see how convenient Apple made it to sync everything together…you end up hooked on all things Apple.  Now if only things were a little…ummm…less pricey?  Apple addictions and teacher salaries just don't go together…and TMI alert, I was making first year teacher pay until this past year :-(  So my purchases meant lots of saving and sacrificing.

My husband and I were hoping to go on our honeymoon to Japan.  It never happened and we still think about it every Spring when the cherry blossoms are blooming.  It'll happen one day!

Now it's your turn!  Please grab the buttons below and tell us all about yourself.


Woodland Critters

My theme last year was a woodland theme with a brights mix.  You can see my class tour below:
I created many woodland items and but didn't get a chance to finish the full set.  Summer means I have a lot more time to create so I was able to finish this set up.  I am thrilled with how it came out.  Check out this video below to get a peek inside:

I am all about making things cute, but not by sacrificing function.  These labels will make your room cute but more importantly, they will help you stay organized!

Click below if you are interested in seeing this set :-)

I have some coordinating products in my store, here is one below:
Happy organizing!

2 for Tuesday - Melonheadz Style!

I'm back to share another 2 for hosted by Chalk One Up for the Teacher!  Through Tuesday both these items will be marked down 50% off.  If you miss out on the Tuesday deal, don't fret!  These two items will remain on sale 20% off for the rest of the week.

Today I'm sharing two highly wish listed items from my store:

These schedule cards can be used to display your daily schedule.  I included all the kid designs in every color so you can coordinate them as you would like.

They look like this when finished:
The cards are editable using PowerPoint, so you can create cards for any purpose in your classroom!

Next up are my editable field trip badges.
I think we can all agree that field trips are a big deal!  My school requires that all children wear badges when going on field trips.  This year I was thinking about how special these trips are to my kids and realized how nice it would be if my kids could have a special field trip badge that they could wear and get to take home as a keepsake.  I created these ones for my kids below:
I printed them on brightly colored paper and laminated them.  My kids were thrilled to find out they were going to get to take them home.  Parents were so thankful for them too!  They were able to put the badge in their album along with some pictures they took at the field trip.  It added something special to our day.  This is definitely something I will do every year for my kids!

Pick them both up 50% off through today only!

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram for more fun ideas!  You will also be the first to find out about new discounted products ;-) 


Monday Made It

I got a little crafty with the help of my niece!  I made some of these apples for teacher appreciation week.  She loved them so much she came by to visit and asked if I could make her a "teacher apple" for her to keep her money in.  How could I say no?  So she and I made a new little apple for her room.
If you would like to make an apple like this one, head over to The 36th Avenue's Blog.  She has a step by step tutorial showing you how to make them.  Very easy to follow!

Next up, last week I showed some organizational labels for bins I made for a friend.  I received some requests for different colors.  Instead of making a set of blue ones, pink ones, green ones etc. I decided to put all the bright colors in one set.  You can mix and match the labels to create a colorful look, or use one color for the entire design.  Each color comes in multiple paper designs to give you even more choices.  

Here they are: 
A close up of the toolbox.

 These are the To Do drawers shown in the other colors.

Below are more labels that can be used to create weekly drawers, subject drawers, or anything else.  I provided every pattern with and without the white labels.

Birthday Sale!

Today happens to be my birthday and wedding anniversary.  Not to mention it's Father's Day so my whole family gets together for a birthday/anniversary/Father's Day dinner to celebrate everything :-)

I'm throwing a 20% off sale through midnight tonight to celebrate :-)


Five for Friday

I just realized its been a long while since I linked up for Five for Friday.  Here is a little recap of what's been going on.

1. We just got a new puppy. Here name is Penelope and shortly after we got her, she took a tumble and broke THREE toes.  She's a trooper! She's already acting like her chipper self :-)
 2. I signed up to go to Vegas for the TpT convention.  My first time ever going to Vegas!  I made some business cards to take with me.  I love how Vista Print shows you how they will look in someone's hand!
 3. I stopped by Half Price Books and found some more mini books for my first graders.  My kids love reading these little books.  They fit perfectly in their hands.
 4. I preordered this book a few weeks ago and it never came. I found it at Barnes and Nobel and it was quite a surprise seeing it there.

5. I finally had time to make some polka dot binder covers with some cute clip art! You can see them below:
Binders available HERE.

Teachers Love Summer Linky

I think it's fair to assume that all teachers love summertime.  Yes, I miss my kids, but I really enjoy having time to do everything!  My friend Aimee started a linky for teachers to share everything they love about summer :-)
Time.  I now have time to do everything I want to get done but don't have any restrictions.  I have been known to stay up way past my bedtime during the summer :-)  No alarm clocks, I can go to the bathroom whenever I feel like it, I can run out and pick up some lunch whenever the mood strikes me! It's wonderful!

 Family and Friends.  During the school year I feel like I barely get any family/friend time.  I usually am so exhausted by the end of the day or have so much to do after school, that I don't feel like going out and doing things afterward.  During the summer I don't feel rushed to leave a friends' house early and can actually enjoy being with my loved ones. 

Creating.  I absolutely love to create things for my classroom but it gets hard to do during the year.  The summer is a great time to get my laptop, or head to my office, and create without any timelines.

Binging on Netflix, Pinterest, and Blogging!  How I love to spend time doing all these things and the summers mean I can catch up with my favorite shows, find new ones to watch, and catch up with my favorite blogs all while surfing Pinterest :-) 

So what do you enjoy about summer?  Link up with Primarily Speaking and share with us!
