Back-to-School Favorites Give-Away and Linky!

I almost had a sh!t fit this morning when I realized that there is only 3 WEEKS UNTIL SCHOOL STARTS. I was so sure I had like 5 weeks left. Are you an avoider? I am an avoider. I had to literally force myself to look at the calendar to make sure. I honestly didn't want to face reality and know the truth.

3 weeks? SERIOUSLY?!

I suppose better to face it head on then.

Even though my classroom is a disaster (see tomorrow's post) I need to think about organizing and what I need to do to make it through the next 4 weeks. Here are some things that will help me out:

(Oh, and before I forget {{how could I forget?!}} only 9 FOLLOWERS LEFT!!!!)

I'm a big labeler. This is my secret to being able to find piles instead of being completely overwhelmed. Labels are my map.

 This is my FAVORITE part of the kit. I have it hanging on the back of my door and I use it for exit slips. The kids just got their thoughts on a post-it and stick it on their number!

And if owls aren't your thing, you may have jumped on the 'stache bash. I LOVE this!!

You can win one of TWO sets of Mustache Fun, too. Same as above, just one teeny step! AND, just like Cinderella, the magic disappears at midnight. You have until then to enter!

  8. So, I did all of the above for the black and white kit, but really want to win the mustache set! :) I'll email you anyway, just in case I don't get the mustache kit! My theme is black and white and I don't have any labels for anything, so this will be great! I am your latest follower!!

  9. I love the exit slip chart idea! I have something similar in my classroom for my second graders, it i lime the idea of using their numbers. Thanks for sharing! ~ Lisa
