Too Cute Tuesday

My amazing teacher stool. It was a gift from Jamie Lee. (She is the best!)
This amazing stool was made by our school's very own crafty Tara Collins! Check her cute stuff out here http://www.facebook.com/pages/Taras-Creations/114859278535649

Jamie Lee got one too. How cute is this?

Rachele's classroom

is how I am feeling about FINALLY being finished with my classroom and all set for Day 1 (which is tomorrow!) Here are some photos, let me know what you think.

This is my teacher desk/writing center area.

This is our behavior board. Each student has a popcorn box to store their Marlin tickets for good behavior.

Teacher chair and easel area. I also tried my hand at a crate seat.

This is my Differentiated Instruction Table. I also made that usher poster pal above the shelf!

This is our calendar board

This is the front of the classroom

This is where I store a lot of centers materials

Too Cute Tuesday

OK, OK, OK. I know it is not Tuesday. I wanted to wait until Tuesday to show off my new loves but Tuesday is our first day back to work for Staff Development. That, and I am impatient. So let's just all pretend that I am on the right day of the week and admire the cuteness of these. Fabric POM POM Pens!

Believe it or not, these were a pinsperation. This blog gives you a tutorial if you would like to make these beauties for yourself.

One more look? Ok. You got it!

Have you been pinspired?

bad bloggers and eye candy

Shame on us. We have been terrible bloggers lately. Wanna know why? We've been slaving away in our classrooms. I mean, we totally should have just moved into school as of late. Ready for the good news? Jamie Lee is D-O-N-E with her room. Here is a treat for the eyes. (Sidenote-remember Jamie Lee has a jungle theme in her classroom.)

Holy Vistaprint!

Holler. Hey Oh. That's what I'm talking about. Yeehaw. and Sweet. Now that I've gotten that out of my system, let's discuss the world of Vistaprint. It all began one night when I was doing my nightly blog stalking. There was a lovely teacher talking about how much she got from Vistaprint for FREE. I thought I'd go check it out. I loaded up my cart with 543 20 or so things thinking they would be free. I mean, that teacher got all her stuff free, why shouldn't I? I proceed to checkout. Not free. What? How? Why me? I go about my business as usual. I'm a little bummed, I won't lie but I kept calm and carried on. The next day, I was blog stalking again. Another lovely teacher is talking about her Vistaprint loot. What is different this time? She mentions a forum on ProTeacher called Vistaprint Addicts. I have an account. I check it out. Holy Moly. There are some amazing deals posted on there. I go back to Vistaprint. I load my cart with 543 20 or so things. Proceed to checkout. ALL FREE.

Here is my loot:
A notepad

Thank you notes/postcards

Address Labels

Sticky Notes

Business card stickers

Large Magnets

A notebook

A rubber stamp

Business Cards

and a pen

Unreal. I know. All free! Yes, please! Check it out for yourself!
