 I love this chair! There are also lots of other author’s chairs to find some inspiration. I’m headed to home depot now to pick out my paint

This will be a great idea to keep next to my computer not just for the kid’s passwords but for mine as well!  There are always so many passwords to keep track of and the colors will be helpful to find them easily.

The Toothpaste Squirt Lesson is a great back to school lesson on teaching children about choosing their words carefully and thinking about the impact it has on others. 
It reminds me very much of the wrinkled heart activity we did in our class. If you’d like to download the wrinkled heart poster- it’s free and will explain how it’s done.  


Join in the fun and have a great start to school.

I love to create organizational items to help you in your classroom. If you see something in my store and would like for me to create it in your color scheme, just let me know.

Enjoy back to school with these free signs for your first day back! Grab them here for grades K-6!


Start the year off right with organizing your classroom with a variety of labels.  Use them to organize your books, bins, centers and so much more.  Here are just some of my editable labels!!  There is the regular, mega pack, and ultimate edition with more than 20 styles and 120 labels in all!


Labels not your thing? Grab these editable signs here. These are great for posting standards. 


Organize all your math manipulatives with this great set that includes picture clues for younger students and words for older students. Grab it here!



Decorate your room with your choice of editable class d├ęcor packs to fit your style –  chalkboard decor, chevron, polka dots, and more!
This 200 page Seuss style decor bundle was just added and it’s EDITABLE as well! Check  it out here and pick up your FREE READ banner too!












In the beginning of the year, I love to create a memory book that starts in September and lasts through June.  When complete, children can go back and look at their work.  They will  see improvements in their handwriting, drawings, and more as the year progressed.  It also serves as a reminder as to what activities they enjoyed  each month.   Bind/staple it into a memory book that will be something that parents and children will cherish forever.  Great for all levels as there is paper with additional lines for older students.
