Summer Goodie Cups

Just finished making some goodie cups for my upcoming class! I'll be out delivering after I get back from a week of church camp.  I'm really liking this superhero theme!

Decided to send a little summer hello to my new students for next school year.  Of course, I had to add a little plug to remind them to spend some time reading this's my job :) I'm excited to start a new year with a new class since I missed it last year on maternity leave.

Bulletin Boards a.k.a. Scrapbooks on Steroids :)

So, I'm SUPER excited for my new classroom theme...SUPERHEROES!  I love the bold colors and the fun ideas that come with it!  I've been busy cricut-ing and making new boards from ideas I've seen on Pinterest!  Yes, it's still June, but trying to get it done so I can focus on lesson plans before school starts.  Here are my boards so far...

I will try to blog more often this year!!! I promise! I have a little better handle on the whole mommy/teaching thing now. If anyone has other ideas or questions feel free to email me!

We're College Bound!

Next week is College Go! Week.  We wanted to pump up our kids with a little music video action.  Thanks to a blog Mrs. Stone found this summer we had awesome revised lyrics to One Direction's summer hit...What Makes You Beautiful!  So enjoy a little 3rd grade madness to "We Want to Be Champions!"

Kids make me laugh!

While reading a scholastic news with election stuff...the kids start talking about who they'll vote kid so serious said..."I'm not gonna vote for Obama bc his wife Michelle is gonna get rid of pop!!!" I just had to stop and laugh.

Then after math and teaching place value to the hundred thousands place a girl comes up to another student holding Squeakers our class guinea pig and has made him a hula skirt...not so sure she has mastered place value yet... ;) but may have a future in fashion!

What time is is????? GAME TIME!

I'm only 3 days away from starting a new year in 3rd grade!  Teaching, like my career in basketball, comes naturally for me...but the inevitable butterflies that I used to get before my games are here just the same for teaching.  I know I can do it...I'm prepared...I'm pumped...but those nerves that used to hit the hardest right during the National Anthem are here now.  I've decorated my room and I'm slowly getting a grip on the curriculum, but the same thought gets me each year at this time.  I will impact lives this year.  My words and actions need to be chosen carefully because they have such tremendous power to hurt or heal...criticize or praise...discourage or inspire.  Take a look into my room and i'll get back with you once the kiddos get here!

Sports Theme!!!!  I love it!
