Pumped up about PBIS! **FREE POSTERS**

Happy Wednesday!

So I was planning on telling ten facts about me and show off my classroom this week, but things are not ready yet. When my classroom doesn't look like it has gotten hit by Sharknado, I will show it off. Hopefully I will be done next week. **Fingers Crossed** School doesn't start till Sept. 3rd, but the Future Mister is a Best Man in a wedding not in our town the weekend before school starts, so I need to have everything ready before that!

Yesterday, as I was looking at all the beautiful classrooms and being super jealous of all the storage and organized wonderfulness of the classrooms, I came across Ginger's Blog. She posted a picture of these super awesome PBIS Posters:

Aren't they beautiful. Well, those are not the rules my school has for PBIS, so I needed to make my own. Here was what I came up with:

I love them and can't wait to hang them up in my classroom. I have made these free, so if you have the same PBIS rules or just want these reminders for your kids. Click the picture to download!

Enjoy the day!

Twisted Tuesday and 15 Students!!

I have internet again!! :) Last week, I was so frustrated with my fiance's SUPER SLOW, like it takes 3 mins to load a page slow, and so I called Century Link to speed it up. Well, when they were doing their work they didn't connect something right, so I have been without internet at our house since last Thursday. It has been awful! I was so happy after my walk this morning that it was all fixed. Can I get a hallelujah? :)

Since, I have not had internet I have been spending a lot of time with my puppy and my family. It has been so great to get these last few weeks of time with them! Last night a bunch of my fiance and I's friends came over for a game night. It was great to see everyone!

Yesterday, I brought my Fiance to come and see my classroom. The past two years, we have been doing the long distance thing, so it was great to have him come and help. I had a stack of laminating to cut out, so I put him to work. Then, when our IT person came to bring me my IPad, he fixed my broken lap. What a sweetie! Here is a picture of him working his butt off:

Talking about Ipad, I am so excited! I have never had one before, so I feel like a little kid playing with a new toy. We get around 5 for our class to use, and then there is a cart if we want to do a whole class thing. If you have any great Ipad suggestions let me know. I would love to hear them.

At the end of last school year, the Kindergarten team put together our class list for this year. Each 1st grade classroom had 17, well today we got an updated class list and I only have 15!  I am so excited to have a little class, and to be able to connect better with each and every little face! My first year teaching, I had around 13-15 in my classroom, and last year I had 23. The small size was so wonderful. I felt like I always got time for each kiddo, and was able to do so much more.

Okay this post has been all over the place. I am just starting to plan for the start of school so stay tuned! We don't start till after Labor Day, so I am soaking up the end of summer. On Thursday and Friday though, I am going to a PBIS training. I think it will be great to hear all the great insite from this training.

Have a super Tuesday!

Currently August!

I am linking up with Farley for this months Currently! I can't wait to see what everyone puts! :)

Both my fiance and I are obsessed with House Hunters. I am not so keen on House Hunters International, but I will still watch it.

Loving: Having a puppy has been wonderful. I love the fact that I have to go on walks everyday, Hello Wedding Body!

Thinking: I have way to much to do in my classroom, but I don't want to leave the puppy!

Wanting: My fiance works full time from 2:30-11:00. So, I wish he would take the next month to hang out, but sadly that can't happen.

Needing: My new school is huge on AR, and we didn't use it at my old school so I need to label my books. I have been procrastinating this all summer.

B2s: 1. Coffee.. I don't want to walk up in the morning without it!
2. My poster markers! I love writing on posters and making anchor charts. Without good markers it would be hard!
3. Morning work! I love starting the day with morning work, and I would be lost without it!

Now it is your turn! :)
