Monday Made It...Classroom Style, Back to Work, and SALE!!

Happy Monday Friends!,
It's Monday again and time to link up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics from Monday Made It!
 Today is the day...BACK TO WORK! I can't remember the last time that I was up this early. Wait...yes I do...2 months ago!  The coffee is definitely brewing strong in my house this morning! 
This week, I have been busy putting everything together for my classroom. Here is what I've been working on:
I made a pirate themed classroom chart!!

I also made some pirate birthday headers. I am gluing skull & crossbones ribbon to them so I can attach each student's birthday to them. Thank you Sara from Smiling in Second Grade for giving me this idea!!

Real pictures to come of that...
I put together this bulletin board set to display student work. Some of you probably recognize this from a previous post.

I updated my center cards now that I've discovered the wonderful world of SCRAPPIN DOODLES!!

I printed out these pirate word wall headers...

and changed my pirate ceiling hangings from this...
TO this...

I like them much better now!!
I've been busy, but I don't see the end in sight!! May the craziness continue!!
Go and link up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics and share all of the goodies that you have made!! :)

  5. Love your pirate room. Super cute. Great idea to add clip art in the fans.

  6. Have fun your first day back - I'm in the same boat (hopefully it's not a pirate one! I'm tired enough without having to walk the plank this early!)
