Back to School with Oriental Trading

I can't believe I am already setting up my classroom and waiting for rosters to be settled!   Summer went a little fast but now the brain needs to start thinking about the school year!   There is so much prep for teachers to do before the first day of school!   I am so thankful that Oriental Trading has many great items that I can get and some of the best prices around!  They have items for your reading nook, crafts supplies, organization, and so much more!  

 A few of the items I picked up for my classroom include some motivational tools such as the bracelets above and the finger hand cheers!  Then I also picked up some posters for my classroom and organization storage items.  

 The brain break cards will be used often as a warm up in the morning or between tasks throughout the day.  
These foam finger hands are going to help keep kids thinking positive.  I am currently working on my thesis and it is all regarding positive thinking and words so I will for sure be utilizing these to help my students stay positive.  

There are many borders and posters to choose from and these are a couple I picked out!   SUCH GREAT CHOICES for a AWESOME price! 

I also picked up some of these dry erase clings for the tables.   I am so excited to use them!   I know I will use them daily with my 95% curriculum.  

I am getting close to being ready for students in a couple weeks but now I must soak in some more sunshine before it's too late!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!  

Harlem Globetrotters- A night of Fun! Save 20%

  If you only came here for the discount code then there ya go!  Save 20% at checkout with the code: USFAM!   I will admit that prices seem very costly in my opinion so hopefully this 20% off will really help you.   I was blessed to be able to promote this discount and post about my experience to get free tickets for my family.   I am not sure our budget would be able to afford the tickets... family of four and ticket prices we got were over a $100 each ticket... so it can make for a pricey night.   Then add in if you get snacks, a ball, or a jersey you could spend a hefty paycheck in one evening of fun.    With that said, my family did have a good time.   We saw good talent, we had lots of laughs, we cheered, and we enjoyed watching with each other.   Some would say the Harlem Globetrotters are like the equivalent of WWE but with basketball.   There is a storyline within the game, which helps get the crowd going and cheering.   My 11 year old had the most fun!   He was standing up and
