To sum it up.

The end of the year can't come fast enough. Can I get an AMEN?!?
I'm linkin' up with Clutter-Free Classroom this week! Check it out! Seriously great tips written all over every page.

And I need tips all the tips I can get.
'Cause let's be honest ladies {and gentlemen??}...
My mind is here.
 But my reality is here...
and that has inspired these 2 craftivites:

 First Grade Was A BLAST!
First Grade ROCKED!

Maybe these two craftivites will speed up the countdown? Happy thoughts. Happy thoughts.

Grab both patterns at my TPT store {includes titles for K-5th}

I hear summer calling my name!


  1. These are both so cute!! What are the bins on your desk for? :)

    1. I used the bins at the beginning of the year as a "color system" for behavior management. If you look closely you may see flowers hot glued to popsicle sticks with thier names written on them. They would "move thier flower" after a few warnings. It worked for a few months but then I found something I could be more consistent with so now, they just sit there- looking colorful {and dusty...shh ;p}

    2. Ohhh, I see!! I have a thing for colorful bins!! Haha :)

  2. First Grade Rocked! Love it! Loving the thought of a hammock...on the beach...

  3. Your guitar activity is right up my alley! I am going to have to snag a copy as soon as my Open House chaos ends. It will give me something to look forward to! Thanks for sharing.
