Back To School TPT Sale 2013

I can hardly believe that the beginning of school is here.  My Littles don't officially come until the 26th so I have a little more time to  go to meetings get my room ready.  Pictures to come soon :) 

I have only been to my classroom 2 times.  With a late scheduled trip south to visit my sweet folks and the building being closed for summer cleaning, I haven't had the opportunities!  When I walked in on Thursday, I thought I would see the typical classroom in August.  You know, the one that I have seen for the past 7 years....OH NO...the summer cleaning crew had everything piled at the front of the classroom.  PILED! More on my classroom progress later...

In happy news, TPT finally announced their Back To School Sale!  I am also offering 20% off.  That means you can save up to 28% by entering the promo code:  BTS13  

Here are a couple of my favorites:

My CVC Practice Activities packet:

My Interactive Attendance File (16 different boards for smartboards)~ Awesome way to take attendance each day!

August Currently

August...Yikes!  I am linking up with Farley over at Oh Boy, it's Fourth Grade for her monthly linky party.

I have my TV tuned to the local Christian Radio station.  I love doing that during the day while I work on stuff.  Matt Maher's "Lord, I Need You" is on.  I love that song and the sweet reminder of my need for total dependence on my Savior!  Don't even get me started about Audrey Assad who helps him out in this song.  She is phenomenal in her own right too! 

I am traveling soon to visit my sweet momma and daddy in Mississippi.  My hubby and I try to visit during the summer each year.  We would love to visit more often, but being a teacher and church planter are financially challenging sometimes.  Plus, my sweet hubby works at Target to supplement our income.  He is the student pastor at our church, but doesn't receive a salary.  Anywho, we are super stoked to see our family and friends (and eat all that yummy southern food that you just can't get in the Pacific Northwest!). 

I am nervous about this next group of Littles.  One Little has some serious needs that I have never had to deal with as a teacher before.  Pray that I will be a good fit for him and that I will know how to meet his needs!

I want this necklace:  (click pic for etsy store :)
Sterling silver sideways cross necklace

I want to get into my classroom and WORK, but we aren't allowed back just yet!  The Littles don't come back until the end of August.  I know I still have time, but goodness gracious I want to get in there!  Right now, I am trying to do all the stuff I need to do at home.

B2S must haves
1.  New First Day Outfit ~ My school colors are black and red.  Traditionally, the staff at my school try to wear those colors the first day.  Gotta get busy looking :)

2.  New teacher bag ~  I want either a new 31 bag or Vera Bradley.  I haven't made my mind up just yet. 

3.  I love this.  I want this.  I need this.

This is by Hope King over at 2nd Grade Shenanigans.  It's on my wishlist :)
