Colorful ideas!

I have always LOVED going back to school!  I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a teacher, because I loved school!   I love the crayons and scissors and glue! I really love going and buying all the new school supplies!  I especially love new crayons!  There is just something about opening up a box of new crayons and coloring with them for the first time. The picture is just so much prettier to me!  So, when I came across the new, cute blog, I was super excited!  

Cole's Little Pups has some adorable posters she has made! If you head over to her blog, she will even share them with you! What a sweet teacher! :)

(Thank you Barbara for the help! :)

This time of year just makes me super happy! :)  I hope you have a wonderful back to school!  Teachers go back next Tuesday, August 16th and my Meet the Teacher is Thursday, August 18th. Our first day is Monday, August 22nd.  So excited for this school year to begin! It is going to be a great year! :)

New TpT Store with Giveaway and Freebie!

Second Grade Shenanigans is having a giveaway for starting her new TpT store and to celebrate her first bloggy unit!   She is even so sweet as to share something just for blogging about her giveaway!

Lakeshore and Target Shopping Spree!

Well, I finally hit the Target Dollar Spot - Woo Hoo!!! Got some great things! I found the Capital Alphabet Stampers and Number Stampers, ink pads and pocket charts. Gotta Love Target!

Next I headed to Lakeshore for their back to school sale! Another Woo Hoo!!!! 20% off the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Tree! 20 % off all their stamps and stamp pads! I also had a  Buy one item, get the 2nd for 50% off coupon - Yay!!! So I bought a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Game and some wonderful foam dice for my class to use!
I am so excited! Now, to organize and use my new goodies in my classroom! I decided to make some Roll, Write and Stamp pages for my class to use.  I know we all are a little cash strapped by now, so I am sharing these for free (and because I don't have a TpT store!)  

The first page is for beginners, the second page is a little harder and the last page is more challenging.  The fourth page goes with page 2 and 3. You will need to copy page 4 for the students that use those pages and then they cut out the dice and put them in order at the bottom of pages 2 and 3.  I made them in word then saved them as a .pdf file, so if you can't open it, please let me know!   I hope you like it, and if you do, Leave me some love! I love all your comments! :) 

Roll Stamp and Write (dice)

Until next time, enjoy what Summer you have left! :)
