Back In School Mode & New Theme

The fourth of July has gone and past and that means I have just over a month before I am blessed with another bunch of kiddos.  I am so excited to be back in school mode, but am also sad to be ending this summer with my beautiful daughter.  This was the first real summer that we got to go do fun stuff and make memories.  I have decided to give my room a bit of a makeover this year.  I decided to keep a lot of my same colors (neon and bright) but change my theme to some fun celebrity & rockstars.  
I found this label on Pinterest without any link back to who created it and it wasn't even in a google docs format.  I took the image or tag and made it into labels to place on my Poprocks.  These will have sunglasses and balloons attached at open house. Click the label sheet below to get yours. These will fit on avery 5160. 

I have also decided to get rid of all those papers that have to be turned in in the beginning of the year for us to keep in their folders.  They pretty much all ask the same thing (birthday, name, contact numbers, pick up/drop off, etc.) I created a shipping label to place on an index card.  The parents fill it out at open house and then I file it in a index card catalog like the one below.  It will fit easily on my desk and I don't have to be digging through file folders for info or early release info.  I love I can take it with me home or leave it at school. Grab your labels below.

I am pretty excited about all the fun things I have planned for my classroom and can't wait until early August. I will be posting lots of pictures and tons of freebies.  Here is a sample of the adorable V.I.P. Passes I will be sending out next week to my kiddos.  I bought string and laminated them to look like backstage passes.  These turned out so cute.  I had them custom made by Michelle Lyman

Enjoy your last bit of summer!
