Some Great Back To School Ideas

I know you're on summer break, but is your mind still thinking about going back to school?

I'm sure a part of you wants to forget school and really enjoy the summer time with your family. 
My kids, grand children and nieces and their families.
The other part of you wants to use this time off to regroup and find new things to do in the fall. Like these new name tags or badges that I updated this summer. I'll make them for you! All you have to do is choose the shape and colors, send me your class list,  and I'll make them with your student names on them. 

Click HERE if you want to grab these name tags. 

I'm with both of those parts. I suspect that if you're reading this, you are too! That's because you are a dedicated teacher and won't settle for less than the best. 

I have asked some friends to share some of their best "Back to School" blogs posts. I have to agree, these are some very good ideas and I want you to read them too. 

I think you'll find some great ideas. 

This idea that Jennifer shares isn't just for kindergarten. You can use it for any grade level. 

Growing Little Minds

Erica shares with you how Family Visits are helpful before the school year starts. 

Melissa shares a great letter that she sends home on the first day of school. 

I hope that you enjoy reading these three articles and can find something to do with your students this fall. 

I'll post more suggestions real soon.

Blessings For Beth Ann

Do you know Beth Ann from Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah Designs? She is a very talented artist and she loves us! If you can't recall who she is, this is her store: Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah Designs.

She has many sets of clipart that cater exactly to our needs. I have many things from her store. 

Beth is currently having some health issues and many of us want to help her. Since most of us don't live near her and can't make her a cup of chicken noodle soup (if only that would be the easy way to fix her health problems!!)
and we can't clean her house for her either. She relies on her drawing and selling on TPT to support her. 

She will come across some major medical bills and that brings stress, which doesn't help you heal. 

Sorry! This is so blurry!

 But we can help financially. A group of teachers have donated many resources  that you can purchase for a great savings. And 100% of the money will go to Beth Ann. 

There are three bundles of things you can purchase.
  1. A k-2 Bundle
  2. A 3-5 Bundle
  3. A Clipart Bundle

You can see all these products by clicking HERE

Please think about this and see if there is something you could use here and that could also benefit Beth Ann. 

And if you don't need these things or can't afford to purchase them, she could always use some extra prayers over the next few months as she begins this medical journey. 

Thank you so very much!

Multicultural Day and a Guest Blogging

Hello everyone. I am not here right now. I'm actually guest blogging over at
HoJo's Teaching Adventures.

I am sharing a little bit about a tradition at my school.
 It is called Multicultural Day. 

Multicultural Day is a big event for my little school. My town isn't as diverse as some communities. but we strive to learn many things about other cultures. One way we do this is by celebrating Multicultural Day each year. 

Some of the things you'll read about are

their flags, money, food, costumes, and customs. 

Looking at their money is interesting!

We like to find books that tell us about these countries too. 

This is a great time to learn more about maps. 

So, please hop on over to HoJo's and read more about the fun we have and maybe you too can have a Multicultural Day too.
