Fall Blog Block Party

Fall is here! Fall is here! Fall is here! 

Happy Fall!!!

To celebrate, we're havin' a Fall Blog Block Party! How fun!

Thanks to Heather at Second Grade Perks for setting this fun block party up!

Don't get me wrong! I LOVE summer! But there's also something about Fall to love. My top three fall faves are:

1. Football season
2. Sweatshirts
3. Holidays 

Here's a perfect fall freebie for you! We've been working furiously on making 10 in our classroom. This a scoot activity! Enjoy!!! 

Now continue down the blog block and head on over to see Kayla at Primary Junction for another freebie!!!

Happy Fall! 

Back to School Tips & Tricks

This week has been CRAZY busy with the beginning of school! I have to say, it took me about 15 minutes to fall in love with my new bunch of 2nd graders! I know it's going to be a great year!!!

I wanted to share a few things that have made my classroom-life much easier! Check it out! 

Glue sponges!!!!! The answer to the always clogged glue bottles! Find directions on how to make these over at Kindergarten Smorgasboard! Seriously- best idea EVER! 

Tape the bottom of the crayon boxes before school starts! This eliminates the mid-year/January crayon spills all over the place!! Eeeek! 

Zip tie the desks together!!!! This'll keep all in nice, neat rows!!! (Just the way I like 'em!) ;) 

MAGNETIC TAPE!!!! Yes please! This was an impulse buy at Lakeshore and it really works!!! I used it on my door for our class helpers board!

(I'll add their names to the airplanes as soon a I can!!!) 

Do you have any handy BTS tips!?!? PLEASE please PlEaSe share in the comments below!!!!! 

I'll be back soon to {finally} share pictures of my classroom! I promise! :)

Have a great weekend! I know I am!!!
