Kinderland Summer Sale - 20% off!

Hey friends! Have you heard the news?! My blogging buddies and I are having a sale for ONE day only! Tomorrow, June 30th, you will see my entire store and all of my blog friends below...with 20% off. You do NOT want to miss this! Now is the time to stock up on all of your wish list items, back to school packs, and units you've debated on purchasing...but haven't! 
If you're planning for back to school, now is the time to make your purchases. Here are a few items you may be interested in from my store:
My "Gingerbread Man Loose in the School" Back to School Pack. This has everything you need, and more, to accompany the book by Laura Murray! You can check out how I used this unit in my own classroom {here}. 
Are you interested in a better management system for your classroom? If you are without a bathroom, and students are constantly in and out of your room, then this pack is for you! Included is everything you need to create an efficient sign in/sign out system. This method allows you to visibly see who is out of your room and is accompanied with matching hall passes. You can check out more about this unit {here}. 
If you're interested in starting the school year off by making classroom books, you should check out this packet. You'll have enough pages and examples to create 20 classroom books that address themes taught throughout the first HALF of the year! My students love creating and publishing classroom books. Once they've been put together and bound, I place the books in my classroom library for all to see. I also send them home for parents to read and they may "check them out" for a night! 
Volume 2 is also available! This unit includes printables to make 25 classroom books and will address themes and holidays that occur during the second half of the school year. Would you rather save BIG? Volume 1 and 2 are available in a bundle {here}.
Also, Katie Mense (from Little Kinder Warriros) and I have teamed up to make monthly Homework Packs. You can check them out in her store. Here are a few other packs that we've put together as well. These are available in MY store. 
Monthly Family Projects (Aug. - June) and Letter Homework from A to Z!

Five for Friday

It's Five for Friday ya'll and I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching. summer break is flying by! :( Please make it slow down. We have to be back August 1st. That's right people...AUGUST FIRST! And, yes, I just used "shouty capitals." I need more time for stuff like this...
1. PEDICURES! Check out my Patriotic toes. ha ha I wanted something fun, but not too tacky. Tina hooked me up at NT Nails (I love her) and incorporated the red, white, and blue without going over the top. That one nail is actually silver sparkles.  
2. I've been working in my room a little here and there. I decided to do a "face lift" on some of my bulletin boards (well all of them actually). I went with the fadeless black paper, double border, and letters from Creative Teaching Press. I drew the explorer and added the silk leaves to make it more 3D. Thoughts? I'm pretty pleased!!
3. In more important news...I finally decided to leave the stone age and purchase an iPhone 5. Lordy I need one more obsession. I already go to bed with my laptop and iPad. Now, this has been added to the mix. I must ha But, seriously, I do stinkin' LOVE it! I have downloaded a ton of apps already and literally cannot put it down. Any app suggestions that I just MUST have? Please share! 
4. I spent some time with Will's niece and nephew on Wednesday. I watched them for a bit while their Momma worked on a few things. You may remember me posting about them {here}. Would you look at how big they've gotten? They are the most beautiful babies in the world! Here is a little video I took of Kelsey...we were paying hide and seek. Her little laugh just makes my heart melt. Have mercy! And what is up with my weird baby voice? Does anyone else do that? I even talk to animals, puppies, my guinea pig, and occasionally my boyfriend (God love him) that way. Please tell me I'm not alone. 
5. Lastly, just a quick reminder about Google Reader going "adios" on July 1. Super sad day. While I love change, I also hate it. Every time Facebook goes on a mission to update stuff, I seriously do not switch over until I'm forced. As the old southern saying goes..."If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" Amen? Anyways....please follow me on blog lovin' (just click the image below). I would be forever grateful and most certainly appreciate it. 
Have a super Friday! Be sure to head over to Doodle Bugs and link up.
