People! Get pumped up!

The way I figure, whether you're pumped up for the beginning of the school year or not, there is something to be MAJORLY pumped up for!! Since I'm suuuuper nice, I'm gonna tell you.... Ready? 

If I've learned anything while trying to prepare my first year classroom for kiddies, it's that teachers LOOOOOVE LOVE LOVE a good bargain! So get PUMPED UP for this amazing, two day, back to school sale that Teachers Pay Teachers is having!  Some awesome sellers will be putting their stores on sale during this time AND TpT will honor an additional 10% off .. totaling a savings of up to 28%  You're gonna want to stock up, people! The sale will be on Sunday, August 12th and Monday, August 13th. 

I'm so excited to announce that my store will be 28% off.  Teachers work so hard and they spend so much of their money on their classrooms so that their students may succeed.  I'm thrilled to be able to offer all my items at this discounted rate! :) You can check out my store by clicking on the TPT picture above.  Take special note of the coupon code -- you'll want to use that during the sale! :)  

I'm totally not alone in this two day sale extravaganza! Click the picture below to check out a list of some amazing teachers who will also be participating in the sale! 

I seriously can't wait! I've got so much on my wish list!!! Not only will I be gearing up for the beginning of the year, but I will be buying some seasonal products as well! I know I'll need them down the line and you can't beat a 28% savings! 

Speaking of seasonal.. though it may seem early to share this, I'm SOOO SO excited about it.  I just finished an adorable Halloween unit.  I wish it was October already! 

I had a blast making this unit! I don't typically get into Halloween, but scrappin' doodles had some ADORABLE clip art and I couldn't wait to use it!  Check it out at my store! 

Okay... can we get personal for a second? Friends, I just can NOT believe that I'm a teacher.  Like OFFICIALLY a teacher.  You work so hard throughout high school and college... and then you land here, and it's so surreal!  Tonight was Meet the Teacher night.  I met 21 families of my 27 second graders! As of tonight, they know me.. ME!.. as their teacher! I just can't believe it! I'm so grateful to all those people who supported me along the way and I'm sending all the glory to God for leading me down this path! I'M SO NERVOUS  EXCITED FOR MONDAY!

As you all continue to prepare for your sweet kids to enter your room (or maybe the already have!) .. I wanted to share a document that you might be able to use!  Click the picture to download some free polka dot word wall headers! 

Alright, that's it for me tonight.  Don't forget....
See you guys Novemeber 12th and 13th.  I'll be the crazy one buying a million gabillion things! ;)
