Newbie Blog Hop

Okay! Mrs. Janis at Grade 3 is the place for me! is hosting a NEWBIE BLOGGERS BLOG HOP!!

So, since I am a newbie, I felt it necessary to join in the fun! :)

The linky party is mainly an avenue for us to connect with other newbies and more seasoned bloggers out there! We are required to answer these FIVE questions!

1.  what state you are in- I live in Louisiana!!
2.  your current teaching position- 5th grade (All subjects)

3.  your teaching experience- I have taught 6th/7th grade English/Lang. Arts
4.  when you started blogging- I started blogging on June 8, 2012
5.  share a blogging tip / blogging resource- The only blogging tip I have is to be PROACTIVE! Don't just follow blogs and get ideas! Share your ideas and post things!

There it is! Don't forget to follow and if you are a newbie, be sure to link up with Mrs. Janis!

Best Boyfriend Everrrrr

I know! I know! It is considered taboo to post more than one post a day...but WHO CARES! lol. I had to come on here to BRAG about my wonderful, loving, thoughtful boyfriend! As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have decided to paint my classroom! Well, since I am a new teacher in my school parish, I have to attend a New Teacher Training ALL this week PLUS it's ALL day! (SHOOT ME!) So, since I am required to attend the training, I do not have ANY free time to stop by my classroom and do things (i.e. PAINT!). SO my wonderful boyfriend, volunteered his ENTIRE OFF day to paint my classroom BY HIMSELF! Isn't that L-O-V-E! Gosh, I love him! :)

Here are some pictures of the progress!

He is actually almost done, which is AWESOME!!! He only has a half of a wall to complete and touch-ups!


Monday Made It #2!!!!

Okay! I am linking up with the wonderful Mrs. Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for my Monday Made It!!!

For the past few months, I have been eyeing those wonderful "PICK ME POTS"! I absolutely adoreeeeee those darn things! I finally sat down this weekend and made one for my classroom!!

I purchased the flower pot from DOLLAR TREE, the ribbon & cupcake decoration from JOANNE'S, and the blue/black bow scrapbook paper from MICHEAL'S!

Here is a pic!! :) Can't wait to use these in my classroom!

Monday Made It!!! THE REMIX :)

Okay, so here is my "MONDAY MADE IT" hosted by Mrs. Tara at 4th Grade Frolics

I know this isn't Monday...I am well aware of that but since I have been so busy getting my classroom together... Monday kind of slipped by me. :|

Anywho! For the past month or so, I have been oogling those wonderful tissue balls on pinterest. I was kind of intimidated by them, but I reallllyyyyyyy wanted them in my classroom, so I sucked it up and learned how to make those wonderful little balls!

I have made 10 in total! Hot pink, chocolate brown, light pink, bright green, and turquoise! These are the main colors that I have chosen to correspond with my SWEET SHOPPE theme!

I haven't hung them up in my classroom yet, but as soon as I do, I PROMISE that I will post some pics!Until then here is a picture of one that I made! I am in LOVE!


I have not been posting lately but it is all in good reason! I have finally gotten the chance to view my classroom!!!!!!! I was soooooo excited to walk into that room! I felt like the five kids on the Willy Wonka movie walking into the chocolate room for the first time. LOL! 

I have been to my classroom EVERYDAY this week! My mom and I have been cleaning and organizing machines! We are no where near done and I still have to PAINT my room, ORGANIZE my room,and DECORATE my room! So, I def have my work cut out for me! PLUS, it's 91 degrees with a humidity index of about 1 million degrees in Louisiana, so once I get home, I am POOPED! :) 

Here are some pictures of my classroom! I still have a lot of work to do! 

P.S. I am finally going to get around to posting my "Monday Made It" later this evening. It won't necessarily be a MONDAY made it, but hey the world will continue turning! :)
