Very Pinteresting...

Hip, hip,'s almost Friday!

Some of you have probably already headed back to school.  How's it going?  I hope so far, so good!  

My sweet friend from Clip Art Stand by Tina Anne went back on Monday.  Although I am so grateful for 2 more weeks at home, I must say that I have felt little tinges of teacher envy as she's texted and sent pics telling me all about her Open House and her adorable classroom!  
In fact, I went and did a little shopping this evening for some new pencil boxes and classroom steps towards the beginning of another year.

While I have a few more days at home, I wanted to tell you that I have been busy updating my Pinterest boards.  Let's be honest, some of my own pins look a little tired and need a fresh touch, so I'm busy working on them, I promise. An example of one of my updated pins is below...
But I'm also repinning and reorganizing!  My favorite board is one I wanted to tell you about...IDEAS FOR SCHOOL THAT ARE SUPER COOL!  
I have pinned so many awesome ideas from other teachers there that I can't wait to try in my own room this year!  Be sure to FOLLOW ME ON PINTEREST if you aren't already!

Here are just a couple of my favorites that other teachers have shared:
How about this cute idea for pairing up students for partner work from the Teacher Next Door...
or this cute idea for a felt cupcake birthday chair cover made by Teaching with Crayons and Curls...
or maybe this great idea for giant googly eyes by Carrie Freeman!
Thanks for stopping by!  Hope to see you over on Pinterest!

Summer News...

Hi, sweet friends!  Have you seen this hilarious meme...I have to say it's kind of how I'm feeling about my summer...
How about you? LOL

Our summer has been super fun and super busy...probably a lot like yours.  We've just gotten back home from our family beach trip.  There's literally nothing like having my toes in the sand to help me unplug and unwind!  How about you?  I love my sweet family and am always so thankful for uninterrupted time spent with them!
I hope summer break has also given you a chance to rest and recharge for another year ahead! 

Here at home the closets are purged, the fridge has been cleaned out, the playroom has been organized...(MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENT!)

And now I am busy checking off my TPT "TO DO" list before my school and classroom prep begins again.  I am so excited to tell you that I have finally finished my New Testament Bible packs, which are an accompaniment to the Old Testament packs I posted in the spring.  They are available in 3 versions--NIV, ESV, and KJV.  I can't wait to use them with my own little ones, and I hope they are beneficial to you as well!  Simply click the images below to view each resource.  There are also schoolwide/churchwide licenses available in my TPT store as well.  

Each pack comes complete with Bible fast facts about each book of the Bible, coloring pages, Scripture memory practice and assessment pages, as well as options for use with classroom bulletin boards and creative writing.  Here are just a few sample pics of what may be found in each pack...
Can't wait to hear how these are benefiting you at home, school, or church.  I just got this sweet feedback from Katherine M. today, "So excited about! Fantastic resource! Thank you!"  

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!!!
