Texas Size Link-Up ~ Back to School

Texas Size Link-Up

Howdy y'all! The Little Ladybug Shop and I are truly excited as this is our 2nd TEXAS SIZE LINK- UPOur goal is to host this link-up on the very last Friday of every month! This month we will be sharing #Classroomreveals #backtoschool ideas and #tips to help teachers be successful in the classroom! This month because it is such a super week we are leaving our link-up open from Friday until Sunday! So that is great news...you have a few extra days to link-up and enter some great raffles for amazing products! So make sure you head to each blogger's link up to enter in each Rafflecopter! There are so many wonderful items.
●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
For this #backtoschool linky, We decided to give away one of our NEWEST items!
We believe that making connections with your students is so important!  Every child that enters your door deserves to be welcomed with open arms.  So, we remade an old item that we have used successfully for many years! More themes and styles are coming soon! Email us to get your theme or style out faster @planethappysmiles@gmail.com 

We greet our kiddos at the door and they choose a handshake, hug, high five, or fist bump!
We hang this tool by the door and they just point to what they want in the morning.
In the past we have also mounted it on the floor and they would just stand on the greeting they desired. How you choose to use it is up to you but the kids LOVE it!
I still have older kids coming by and using the sign in the morning.

Here are mine & Alison's that were made for the 1st day!


Please enter our raffalcopter to wind this item! We know your kids will LOVE it!

Thank you so much for stopping by! 
We would love for you to follow us!

COMING SOON ... Classroom reveals!!!

Sunday Scoop ~ 8.23.15

Happy Sunday, Friend!
We are linking up with Teaching Trio for The Sunday Scoop!
Have to ...
1. Being ready for this first week with kids is my TOP priority today.  One of the tasks to help me stay organized is to have all of their journals and folders ready to go.  Since I had a few name changes and additions to my class on Friday, I have a few more to label!
2. I also need to lay out clothes for all three of us!  Sounds easy but it still takes a little time.
3.  Grocery shopping is something I do not like to do on the weekend but I have put it off long enough. Time to start eating healthy and packing lunches. BOO!

Hope to ...
1. I really need to dive in and organize some of my math materials into the new tubs I just bought.  I am actually looking forward to doing this task!
2. I also hope to relax midday and maybe even take a nap ...

Happy to ...
LAMINATE!  I love to laminate!  So thrilled to have my own laminator.
Best addition to my school supplies ever!!!
If you do not have one ... I highly recommend you do some shopping!


I hope you have a very HAPPY week!!!

My writing station is getting a BIG make-over this year!!!
In this picture you see four projects:
(top-to-bottom & left-to-right) My class journals are color coded according to subject using duct tape on the spines, My class anchor chart signs are ready to be hung, I made a HUGE folder for my examples during writing, and signs that will go in my writing & focus areas!

I had to spray some scissors yellow because every table has matching scissors and yellow did not!  I love Fiskars scissors, but I have never found yellow in the stores.  This was my other option!
