My New Love

My life has been full of "news" lately...a new house, a new job, a new school, a new blog, a new TpT store, a new classroom theme, and now a NEW PUPPY!!! I promised I would blog at least once during the weekends but this weekend was spent with my new little love bug. This is our new little man, Rudy! He is such a ball of fluff!

Anyway...enough about the cutest puppy I have ever laid my eyes on...back to thinking about what is happening in August. I am beyond excited about my new school and our new theme, "Wired for Success!"  I have spent the past few days getting things organized/made so that I won't be a complete basket case come August. To organize student writing journals and reading response journals I have created some labels that I will glue on. I used to use the good ol' sticky labels but I always mess them up somehow with the printer. This year, I plan on just cutting these out and using my handy Mod Podge to put them on. You can grab your labels from my new TpT store! Using the iPad labels will get the nuggets excited about writing and by connecting writing to something they love...iPads! (I mean who doesn't!) And we all know that it's about the connection! 

Putting the "i" in writing! 
Another idea that I found over at the awesome blog Kinder-Craze was this way to cutesify (is that a word?!!) your clear Sterillite drawers. Well, when I saw this, I shreaked, ran straight home from babysitting and went to work on my own drawer. I have HATED this because it is clear and I could always see my unorganized junk in it! Well, Maria just SAVED my life. So after some scrapbook paper, a bottle of Mod Podge and an evening with some Housewives re-runs, I finally had my own. Check it out here!

My version (to match my curtains!) 

Also, Amanda over at Teaching Madeness is have a little giveaway. She has a new and fantastic blog. Check it out for some AMAZINGGGGGGG reading resources! 

Check back tomorrow where I will blog about my Economics Unit and don't forget to check out my TpT store for some more great (cheap!) resources and some more "Wired for Success" goodies! 

Happy Monday!
