Back to School!

I haven't blogged in sooo long!  I'm guilty of trying to pack everything I can into this SHORT summer, so I have been very busy!  Now it's time to get down to it, and by "it" I mean back to school!  I didn't change my room too much because I really felt like I had a good thing going last year.  I did add a "Published Work" bulletin board to hang all the wonderful writing my students create.  I have also decided to do away with labeling the mailboxes, cubbies, etc. with each students name.  I always give students their very own number at the beginning of the year, which we use for lining up and other things.  Why not label things with their number?  That way I can leave the labels and use them the next year!  I know, it's not rocket science and many have done it...I'm just now getting to it!:).  So I made simple number tags to label with.  Since I made them why not post them for FREE on my tpt page?  Get them HERE!

Next on my list of back to school stuff was treat labels!  I want to pass out treats to parents and students who come to Meet the Teacher Night and of course I have to put those pins on pinterest to use and use a cute label!  I found the cutest labels!  I am using "Parents like you are so refreshing!" to label my bottles of water with and "You are "o-fish-ally" a second grader" to tie to my bags of goldfish crackers!  I'm so excited!  Again, I made them for me so why not share!  Get your FREE labels HERE!

So...What have you been doing to get ready for this school year?  Please share your ideas!
