A Few New Things in my classroom

Hi! I can't believe I have not been on here since the big TpT Back  to School Sale! I have been super busy with getting my classroom ready and trying to get my head together for the beginning of school!   I don't have pics of my entire classroom as we are in our second full week of school, but I did take a few pics of some new things that I made for my room. Check them out below!

I use this for my classroom jobs. I put the students names on index cards and move them down each day. I want to fix up something cuter, but ran out of time before school, maybe later

This pic doesn't show up very well, but of course there are pigs on this behavior chart. I used the ribbon to attach them too and used a magnetic clip to hold it in place. I saw this on pinterest!!

These are the words I put on door to go with my pigs programmed with each student name. P I G S:
Prepared  Intelligent   Growing  Students.. I wanted to put paper on the door, but as I said, I ran out of time. They were thrilled to see their pigs anyway!

I made this from an idea off of pinterest. It is hanging outside my classroom door to let others know where we are at when we leave the room.  I keep forgetting to move it back when we return!! I will have to get used to that!
And last... a dear friend of my daughter made this for me to hang outside my classroom. Don't you love the pig with the bling-bling!! She is so talented and I absolutely love it!  Sorry I have been gone for so long, won't be gone this long again, unless something drastic happens!! Hope you like the pics of some of my new things. I was so excited to have them in my classroom

Happy Wednesday!!

More Great Finds!!

Well, yesterday was payday for me, so of course I went to the Walmart. I had to visit the .88 aisle again. I even found a goodie that had been marked down!! Take a look!!

I love to use the giant paper clips in my plan book! I found some colored staples, some cute clips that say today, do, file and ASAP(sorry for the glare, I hope these clips can help me be organized!). I bought a stamp pad and the trays were on sale for $1.00 for 2(thought I could use them in a station, going to put some cute picture on them and modpodge when I decide what game I will use). The hand is an air freshener, because let's be honest, 2nd graders can sometimes be STINKY!!  Then I found this tote basket on sale!!
I bought this for $3.00!! I love it! Don't know what I am going to use it for, maybe carry my books back and forth from school to home(but the only drawback to that is, it will stay in the car because I never bring my stuff in the house when I bring it home!).  I could use it for storing books, do you have any ideas?  Let me know.
    I just finished another back to school theme and posted it to my TpT store. It is called Welcome to a "Moo"-velous Class! Check it out! Click on the picture above and go right to the page! I have added several new items, so check those out while you are there. There is also a freebie! A MOO notebook cover!

Click on the picture and download it for free!!

I hope to be Motivated, Optimistc, and Organized in my classroom this year! But alas, I am the"Pig Lady"! Does anyone have an inspirational idea for PIG that I could use on a notebook cover for my classroom?  Give me yor ideas!!
