Throw Back Thursday-Desk Tag Freebie & Bloglovin Giveaway!

Don't forget to follow my Blog on Bloglovin and enter my little giveaway!

Click here

Well one thing about summer, I'm getting better at keeping up with the blog (sort of).  What is it they say?  You have to do something like 100 times before it becomes a habit?  I made up the that stat but it sounds good!

I'm so grateful for all of the bloggers and readers out their who make me feel like it's okay to keep working on school stuff through the summer (I'm only really working on stuff that I like doing)!

Anyway, I'm throwing back to my post about easy desk tags.  So many people have downloaded these easy   desk tags.  I hope they can help you out!

So the name tags are free and I will get to them in just a second but I thought I'd share the reason why I made them first.  I haven't taught half-day kindergarten in a while, but when I did, I always had everything color coded.  I used to buy these perfect name tags.  They were exactly the same, they had letters and numbers, and they came in yellow or green.  Perfect! Yellow for the AM and green for the PM. Now, they only make the green :(  So, I made these name tags.  I can just print them on different colors of paper and I wont even have to go to the store when I need new ones!

I'm thinking I might make some thematic name tags soon, but here is what I have for now!  If you can use them they are available at my Teachers Pay Teachers Store!

Blog Design and Ocean Freebie (limited time)!

It seems like I have a really long list of things to do this summer.  One of them is to update my blog.  There are so many new gadgets and widgets and all kinds of gizmos out there.  I'm working on the design, I'll call it a work in progress.  I was going for something simple, but I think it's still a little too simple.  Oh well, come back soon and you might see some changes! I made some new desk tags to go with my new ocean colors/theme.  I think they came out pretty cute.  They don't use a lot of ink and there are TEN different designs (I really just couldn't stop)!

Guess what else???  They are free for the next 24 hours!!  Hope you like them!

New Ocean Theme :)

Pin It

Of course I should probably start this post by saying..."sorry it's been a while".  Sometimes we just get a little busy.  Plus people who know me in "real" life know that I tend to be on the quiet side.  In addition to being quiet I've also been pretty busy!  It took me nearly a week after school ended to pack up and move my classroom.  While there were some obstacles that were out of my control, it was mostly my own fault.  I hate taking things down early.  I feel like it's hard on my kinders.  It's hard on me.  I had two really sweet classes this year and I am sad to see them go!

Not only that but I am now officially old (my daughter graduated high school and turned 18)!!!  I'm hoping to get away with that excuse for the next fifty years or so!

Besides all of my excuses I have been creating!!!  I know I'm Camp Kindergarten, but next year I'm going for an ocean/beach theme.  I'm even going to get some hermit crabs as our new class pet (oh yes, I'm committing for the long term)!!  I know it's a bit over done, but the beach is pretty much my favorite place on earth (besides my home).  We spend a lot of time in our classrooms so it only makes sense to decorate in a way that's appealing to US!!  I've also been looking into some brain research about colors in the classroom and taking those into account.  My room has one painted wall-sea foam green!  So I've taken inventory, consulted the research and have decided to go for sea foam green with turquoise, aqua and white.  I think it should be very calming.  

Here's a sample of the products I've made so far to go with my ocean & Beach theme-
Schedule Cards

Classroom Jobs


Picture/Name Cards
And now I'm working on requests!  So far this week I finished Jungle Theme Job cards-which I have to admit, I think I love them.
Camping theme color posters will be coming soon along with more to go with the new ocean theme and Jungle cards! Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog!
