Finally on the Ball- Monday Made It plus FREEBIES!

Happy Motherload of Monday Made Its!!!
Ok I have a confession to make...I have totally been a SLACKER this summer! :(
Then I had a panic attack this past week! I only have 2 weeks until school is back. Oh boy!
So be prepared for the motherload of Monday Made Its that I am about to bring your way. I'm linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics!

 Keep on reading though, because I have some freebies that are headed your way!
First off, I have been working on classroom décor packs for my friends and myself. I am changing after 5 years of doing a pirate theme to doing a rock star theme. I am so STINKIN' excited!
I created this *editable* rock star themed pack!
Here are a few examples of what I included:
I made this editable sign for my classroom door!
I also created my alphabet line...
I had to have some rock star subway art, so I created these inspirational quotes from famous musicians! I found the frames at IKEA for $1.99 each. They are plastic instead of glass which is perfect for those little classroom accidents!
You can find this & more right HERE!
I also created some *editable* jungle themed décor for my friend!
There is so much that it includes! 170 pages of décor! Here's a sneak peek:
You can see more details about this editable décor pack HERE
Then I did some more creating for my classroom! My colors are pink, black, and white zebra stripes this year. I had the hardest time finding pink caddies this year, when one day...VOILA! There they were at my most favorite store...Target!! :) I created the tags and got some zebra ribbon at Hobby Lobby (another favorite of mine). I wrapped it around the caddy and hot glued it in spots. This is how they came out!
Next up, I worked on table signs for each of my tables. I also found these plastic frames at IKEA (no glass involved ;)) They came in a 2 pack for .99 cents each. You can't beat that price!
Here are the table signs if you are interested in using them. Click HERE for your freebie!!
Next up I bought some Pop Rocks and created a tag that says, "First Grade is Going To Rock!". I also made tags for Pre-K through 5th. This is what the final product looks like:
I would like to share this freebie with you!! Click on the picture below to download this for free!
 Right now, I feel like I'm on a long car ride asking, "Are we there yet?" We are finally nearing the end of this post. There is one more item I created. The new school that I am starting at is big into Reading Counts. I created a Reading Counts clip chart in my theme to track the number of points that my students are earning. As they get to the next level, there will be special prizes that they can earn! I'm excited to implement this!
 Well that's about all I have for you today!! I feel like I accomplished a lot this week, and I have much more to work on for next week!! See you around friends!!

It's a Florida Blog Hop!!!!

Welcome to the Sunshine State! Enjoy yourself as you take a tour around our wonderful {and large!} state! Grab some freebies along the way, and be sure to enter to win our Bundles of Sunshine!

I have lived in the Sunshine State since I was 5 years old. I am originally from New Jersey. When I try to tell people that, my husband just laughs & says "You're from Florida!" And I am proud to be a Floridian. I grew up in Deltona which is the next town over from where I live now. I went to college up in Tallahassee, FL at Florida State University! Go 'Noles!
After college, I returned home & got married. About 3 years ago, we moved to Debary which is the next town over from where I grew up. It has that hometown feel. It is a small, very established town.

Debary has a history that goes back into the 1800s when the Timacuan Indians lived here. In 1871, a wealthy wine merchant named Samuel Frederick deBary built what is now known as Debary Hall, which is a 20 room mansion that still stands today. It housed several visitors including Ulysses S. Grant and Grover Cleveland.

Debary is on the famous St. Johns River so there is a lot of boating around here!
We are about 30 minutes from Daytona Beach and Orlando, which means I spend a lot of time on the World's Famous Beach and with Mickey Mouse. The weather is ultra hot in the summer, but most years our winter is very mild (except for last year when we were all freezing in the United States!) We are usually able to enjoy our beaches by March!

This weekend, we have freebies for you to enjoy! Stop by each of our blogs for an activity or idea to use in your classroom. To grab my freebie just click the image below!
This freebie is perfect for beginning first graders and your high kindergarteners. It is called Cut It, Sort It, Glue It: Short A Edition. Click on the picture to download it. Also, check out my Making Words Mega Pack: Word Building for the Entire Year. This pack is all no-prep! Just print it, set it, and forget it! Your students will have the pattern of Making Words down pat in no time! It will be on sale all weekend in my TPT store. Click on the picture to take you there!

The Florida teachers below have two fantastic giveaways for you! You can enter once from each one of our pages. All you have to do is follow my blog! Hop around to all the blogs listed below, and be sure to follow them to get more entries. The more entries you have, the more likely you are to win! Each pack also includes a Starbucks gift card (because, well, a teacher's gotta have a coffee!).
