Where are we Bee Themed freebie!

Hey friends!
Happy Monday!...this is the last week I have off without any real school obligations. I have a kindergarten camp dinner to attend on Thursday night and I am going in to check out my classroom today and bring one box of decor/cleaning supplies, but that's about it! Next week starts the joys of PD and meetings! :/

So I revamped my where are we sign. I was going to go with manually changing out the locations each time we left the classroom, but while I love those signs, it's just easier to use a clothespin (or make it a job for the kids) and switch it out before you leave! So I put this little freebie up in my TPT store if you'd like to snag a copy!  Have a great week!

Some BTS Freebies!

So I'm trying to get ahead of the game (aren't we all!?) So I can start the year smoothly and then be ready for when baby Everett wants to make his appearance.
We have open house the day before school starts this year...normally it's on a Friday and then parents have the weekend to get ready, but this year, my school is doing it on a Sunday...not sure how I feel about that, but we'll see how it goes!

I decided it will be so easy to do stations and then make sure the parents hit every one and get what they need. :) I made some posters and back to school forms and wanted to share with you. Feel free to use! Click on the pics for your copies! {sorry the info is not editable!} Have a good weekend! I think we're out to look at some more baby stuff and maybe hit up Lowe's!

Back to School Gift tag Freebie!

So I've been getting a little stressed with back to school around the corner...trying to get some plans in order and work on maternity leave at the same time...any teachers give birth at the start of a school year?! It doesn't look like it's going to be fun. Anyway, I made these tags to put on some bubbles I will have on their desks for open house. Click on the pic to grab a copy and if you like them, leave some love! :) Thanks!

Assess Me Linky and Baby shower!

Hi sweet friends! So I thought it would be fun to link up with The Tatooed Teacher to do her get to know you linky. 
 Some comments...
yes, I admit, I do crack my knuckles, but they have never given me pain (knock on wood) or swelled up. It's a nervous thing I do I guess.

I am 7 months pregnant and ALWAYS hungry! haha..I went to visit my family for our baby shower this weekend and ate wayyy too much food! And I have a doc appt today so hopefully I didn't gain too much! 

I still do have my wisdom teeth. They have never bothered me and I guess will never come in. I am 28 years old so I think I have passed the time of getting them pulled.

I admit...I haven't showered yet today..but it's only 10:30am and I do plan on doing that before heading out to Target and the doc's.:)

I haven't been to Disney Land but I have been to Disney World twice. Once when I was 4 and once when I was 14. 

I grew up in Ohio and now live in North Carolina. I miss being close to family, but it's only a 7.5 hour car ride so at least it's a trip that can be made in a day..not too bad. 

And as I said before, we celebrated our upcoming little man this weekend with our baby shower. Here are some pics!
my mom did the cake, it was also swirled with blue inside. :)

and she did the diaper centerpieces.

me and my hubby

tables all decked out in blue
so much baby stuff!
We are so blessed for the wonderful weekend and all the neat things we got. I am actually washing little clothes as I type this. :) So excited to get everything together and take a breath before school starts back!

All About ME!

I am linking up with Kinder Tribe today for her meet me kinder linky party! I am so excited to read about all the other kinder teachers! Here we go! 

So a little short intro to me...I have been teaching 4 years, I taught 1 year in Ohio where I grew up, then moved to north carolina and taught first grade the first year, then kinder, then first grade last year and now excited to be back in kinder this year!! :) I'm hoping I can stay here for a while! ;)

I love to bake and have baked a ton this summer because I am pregnant so I am house bound becuase of the ridiculous heat, and also because I am pretty bored..and hungry most of the time! haha

I love having binders to organize papers in! I have all reading assessments in binders as well as math and then when I need a test, I can just pull it out and copy! I also take my teacher binder around with me everywhere and love staying organized!

I love the First day Jitters because it shows kids, they aren't the only ones nervous on the first day..teachers can be too! :)! She has lots of great ideas and such cute products! Click on image to go to her blog! 
  Kindergarten Smiles
 And the last is self-explanatory...I love kindergarten so much! They come to us as babies (many of them) and leave the end of the year with so much growth and knowledge! I just love it..makes my heart happy! 

So head over to kinder tribe to link up kindergarten friends! I hope you have a wonderful rest of they day!

July Currently

Yay for July!! There is so much going on this doctor visits for the baby go down to every two weeks, our baby shower is on July 26th and my 28th birthday is July 25th! I love this month! :) 
So I am linking up with Farley to share my we go! husband is a gamer freak! haha...his latest conquest has been playing Destiny. I don't get it half the time, but to each their own I guess!

Loving...I have a pregnancy app on my phone and check in every Friday when my week turns over and I was so anxious to check it out today as I am officially in the third trimester! It's going waayy too fast! haha

Thinking...So usually my husband works most Saturdays and of course never has Friday off but due to the holiday weekend, I get him all 3 days! It's nice to be able to sit around and relax together. :) week I am going to Lowes to pick up our color choice for the nursery. I experimented with a couple different samples, but we are going with a Valspar color called Green mist, which is a light minty green color. The nursery will be monkey themed and once I put the base paint on, I am planning on  free drawing a large tree with monkeys! Fingers crossed it comes out ok...I'll post pics when I'm done. ;) to the baby's room is our spare bedroom. Because I am moving schools next year, I have all my teaching supplies in the spare room plus we have some baby stuff so it is literally not accessible to even walk around in there right now! My goal is to take care of it all next week!

All Star...I would say I am a great listener. I love listening to others and offering my advice when needed. :)

Link up with Farley...I can't wait to read your currently! Have an enjoyable holiday weekend Friends!!

Bee Rules and Summer Trip!

Hi friends!
So I've been busy modifing my bee decor for this upcoming school year. I have decided to stick with the whole brain teaching rules as the main rules for my kinder classroom. I like how they are explicit and I have also modified mine to better fit kinder wording. :) I added the product to my TPT store if you want to check them out!

 Today I went to the doctor's to do my glucose test! What fun! haha...the drink was not as sweet as I thought it would be, but they ended up drawing my blood late!! I was angry that the nurse had my file on the bottom of the stack and she was not very organized. Luckily, she said it won't mess up the results and if anything, I should definitely pass. lol. Well good...I'm not at risk for having gestational diabetes anyway, so hopefully I don't have to redo it.

Tomorrow I am packing to leave for Ohio! I am so excited to see my momma who I haven't seen since April. This is her first biological grandchild and I know she's anxious to see how big my belly's gotten. (plus I am so excited that she told me I would be pampered the whole week! what girl doesn't love hearing that!)

The only thing I am not looking forward to is the 7.5 hour car ride. I know my back usually starts to hurt after 3 hours sitting in the car and my feet have started to swell just working around the house! :( so I'll be taking extra stops to walk around and drinking as much water as I can without delaying the car trip any longer than it needs to be! haha

Well I hope you enjoy the rest of your week! I'm sure I'll be back soon to add more products or update you!
