Filing and grand finds

So, last year I was told I would be moving to K.  I came to grips with it and started packing up.  My filing cabinet was one of the first things I packed so I would be sure things got where I needed them to go....Well about a week before school got out, I was told I was staying in first.  Although I am thrilled, I have had to unpack.  Here is a before and after picture of one of my file drawers.

Great posters left from the previous teacher.....In honor of Water for Elephants (a very disturbing movie)

Circus time anyone?  We'd love to check with American Pickers to see if these posters are worth anything.

Wow....One of my favorites found.

Hello to my 8 followers.  I'd love to really get my blog going, but there is so much I need to learn.  My first do I center my title?  Better yet, how do I make one of those super cute banners?  Thanks so much.  I hope to share many more pictures and ideas from my classroom soon.

A special treat

In honor of my blog title, I found this and thought it would be fun to share.  It has nothing to do with teaching, just my utter enjoyment of the movie Mary Poppins!  : )  Just a Spoonful of Sugar

School Supplies

So, I am completely addicted to reading teacher blogs. I've spent countless hours reading them since I first found them. I have talked about blogs now to all of my friends and posted to our school's facebook wall to check them out. I want to share and write more on my own, but feel intimidated. Hmmm..... Well, lets start here with my other addiction: school supplies. I love love love school supplies. I am even more of a fan of the Target dollar section and the amazing Dollar Tree. I'm pretty embarrassed by the pictures I am going to share, but feel that fellow teachers will understand. Soon I hope to share specific details for the plans for my purchases.
Oh my!
Not by the hair of our chinny chin chins! I love this felt hats I found at Micheals for $2. They will be a great addition to our week long study of the various Three Little Pigs stories. Our dramatic ending is for students to act it out.
I love Dr. Seuss. Check out these silly bands I plan to give to students to day they register with some sort of cute saying. Any suggestions?
Ahh....the new huge eraser I found at The Dollar Tree. We all make mistakes, but we can always start over.
