Back to School with Freebielicious!

Even though I just finished school a mere 2 and a half weeks ago, something about the Back to School seasons makes me all giddy inside! The fresh start and a new adventure awaiting is just so thrilling! I LOVE putting up new bulletin boards, trying out new organization ideas and putting out brand new crayons on the tables.

Here's a quick peek at some of the fun I had last summer...looking forward to doing it all again in a few weeks!

Here's my calendar wall from last year, already have huge plans to change it up!

I had tons of fun organizing our classroom supplies! {feriously, I have a sick obsession with organizing and cleaning}

I also was able to stay organized with getting new students throughout the school year using these new student bags!

My product included will surely be loved by your students!

By now, you probably know all about my obsession with Picture Direction Icons ;) I use them every day!
Picture Direction Icons
Honestly, I think this is the best classroom management tool I've ever used in my classroom! I am such a visual person and many of my students are too, so it really eliminates lots of mistakes for my kiddos who can't remember 3-step directions {which lets face it...most of them ;)}. I adhered a little magnet strip to the back of the pictures so that as I give my students a direction verbally, I can quickly add a direction icon to the board. I *finally* got smart enough to add numbers to my icons so that I don't have to write them anymore. My kids really love them too!

For a limited time you can grab this exclusive BTS bundle for $29.99 from Educents. That is 73% savings!  Twenty-three products for your kinder and first grade classrooms and over 1200 pages of materials from some of your favorite teachers!  It's a bundle you are sure to LOVE!

  1. Welcome back from Vegas Hadar! It looked like it was an AMAZING time! I will definitely be planning on attending next year! This bundle looks AWESOME! I will be buying it for sure! Even though I am still enjoying my summer, I know that back to school is around the corner! I like the thrill of new school supplies, decorating my classroom, creative new ideas, and fresh eager kiddos ready to learn! I will miss sleeping in though! Speaking of probably could use some Vegas recovery naps. Have a great and happy week! :)

  2. Oh my gosh!!! You are so amazingly neat and organized!!! I am slowly working my way there :) I am very envious of your skills :)
