So my first day back today was fabulous! Our meeting that was scheduled to last until 2:30 ended up ending at 11:30! Then, I got to go to lunch with my teacher gals and finished the day working in my classroom -- though I'm not really sure I got much of anything accomplished.
You guys might know that I am completely obsessed with Nikki's clipart! You know Nikki, right?? The Melonheadz Illustrator! YEAH! Her! Well, she just opened up a clipart shop on TN and I am like jumping up and down with excitement over the instant download! This girl - ME - is impatient, especially when she's working on a project! You can check her out and follow her new shop HERE!
Anyway, I have been meaning to get some things done around my classroom, but realized that I kept forgetting to make them and print them home so that I could take them to school, laminate them, and you know...actually use them! Well, I needed some NEON months of the year signs for my calendar and so I came up with these, featuring the ever so talented Nikki's clipart! Just click the images to download each file!
Then, I made some birthday balloon toppers in different designs. And of course, they don't have to go on straws...you could use glow sticks, pixie sticks, pencils...anything really!
So I saw this cute idea on Pinterest.
And so I decided to make my own version to match my themed of course for meet the teacher night or the first day of school or whenever!
And last but CERTAINLY not least, I made it to 1500 blog followers sometime today! So, to celebrate, I will be giving away 3 items from my shop to one lucky winner! All you have to do is leave a blog comment telling me you favorite student "Get to Know You Activity" that you use in your classroom! I will use a random number generator on Saturday-ish to find a winner!
