The big news is, is that I am moving!  Not moving grades moving schools as in an hour away from my current position.  It's not officially official..yet but all I am waiting on is school board approval.  I am going back to the school where I taught computers as an aide for my first year.  I am excited and scared about this new adventure but mainly excited.  I'm going to have a team!  I will have someone to bounce ideas off of (you never realize how important this is until you don't have one).  I'm very excited for this next chapter of my life..not to mention the man-friend is now only 10 minutes away!

Our school theme is ignite and of course I want to be different.  Our team is doing fireworks in our end of the hallway.  In our classrooms we can do our own thing and to be different I chose fireflies.  I was looking around for ideas etc. and I couldn't find any cute clip art.  For some reason this lovely lady was the first one to pop into my head!  I love her stuff and she's hilarious!  Michelle at The 3AM Teacher is going to do some fireflies and other insects for me!  I'm so excited! Click on her button below and you can see some of her great work!  If you click here it will take you right to her TPT store!

I went to Petco and picked up my Bearded Dragon habitat yesterday with my grant from Pets in the Classroom.  It was 179.99 with my coupon I received the habitat for FREE! I felt like I was a big winner on extreme couponing!  Next when it is closer to the end of July I am going to purchase the Bearded Dragon for 50% off.  I'm slightly nervous about this critter but I'm excited about what it will bring to my classroom. 
My classroom is packed up I have 3 weeks until I can move into my new one more than likely.  Now I have to focus on packing up my house and saying some goodbyes.  Saying goodbye to my cheerleaders will be the toughest.  I'm going to miss them and the rest of the students at my school but sometimes you have to do what is best for you. 
Have a great weekend!

  4. Fireflies would be so cute! My school doesn't have a school wide theme...Congratulations on the new assignment. I would be relieved to be teaching the same grade AND having a team! I also teach 2nd grade and my team is awesome. So awesome that we all hang out outside of school. They are some rare gems!

  5. Congrats on the new assignment. I am also changing schools where I taught Kindergarten as well as coached the High School Cheerleaders. I know that I will miss them terribly as well. At my new school, I will be the only 2nd grade teacher and I've never taught 2nd, so I am quite nervous! However, I'm so happy to have found all of these wonderful blogs and hope to find some day-by-day help!! Good luck with the move:)
