Bulletin Board BANANZAAAA!

Can I just say...

I love my student teacher!!! Having her there is AMAZING! I don't think I have ever been so organized and on top of things, ever!

Today, I don't know what got into me but I was crazy productive! I got 2 bulletin boards done, along with several other little odds and ends. But I wanted to share my boards with you because, I am obsessed!

First off is my writing bulletin board. We have been talking about the different ways we can write as a writer, so this pinterest inspired bulletin board is now almost complete! : )

Second Board: My Reading Level Achievement. I did something similar with my kids last year and it really encouraged OWNERSHIP with them! They really loved it! So this year I went off of our school mascot: Tigers. So, our theme song is the new Katy Perry song, Roar! I changed the wording a tad and made it apply to reading. I loooove it!

"I've got the eye of the tiger... and you're gonna hear me read!" (yes, I know an "n" is missing... dang auto correct deleted my extra n!!! that will be corrected tomorrow! :)

Do you have any cute/new bulletin boards you've been working??? If so, attach a link and share, I would love to see you're cute ideas!

Happy ALMOST Hump day!

Well, Hello September!

Let me start by saying that I LOVE FIRST GRADE!!! :) I survived my first week in first and let me just say that it's a BREEZE compared to what I am used to this time of year! I giggled as I saw the little ones walking in the hall and thought to myself-- i am in Heaven! :)

Well, I am linking up with Farley from OH Boy 4th Grade for her September Currently. I thought I would try to squeeze in a quick blog post before bed for one of my fav linkys! :)

I also wanted to share that being an insta-addict I am joining CF Classroom in their instagram picture a day for September! You can follow me on instagram...username "hayitsla". You should join up to! Just hashtag #cfclassroom

Lastly-- check out my TPT store! I just posted a cute little book on rules. We have been talking about rules and the importance of rules this week so I thought this book would be a fun way to "wrap up" the unit! 

Hope everyone is loving their year so far! I promise to blog more once life slows down a little, sigh!
