First Grade Classroom Decor & a Sale

I have been trying out PicMonkey after learning about it at the TpT Supercharged Seller Conferences in Vegas (Thank you Deedee and Deanna).   I put together a few shots of my classroom from last year.  I will continue the polka dot theme this year, but I don't plan on going into my classroom until August.  

Last year's summer project was painting the desk above.  You can read all about it {Here} and snag the desk mini posters. I painted the Michael's frames and hot glued magnets to the back.  

The Teacher Toolbox organizer labels are available individually or in my Ultimate Bright Polka Dot Decor Packet

These table caddies are made from picnic utensil organizers from CVS.  I then added ribbon and my table labels from my Ultimate Bright Polka Dot Decor Packet.

 The resources above are also bundled into my Ultimate Bright Polka Dot Decor packet or you can purchase the color posters here, the number posters here, and the alphabet posters here.
Tip: Try adding ribbon to the door for a 3-D effect.  I also like to layer the borders.

Vegas Recap and a Giveaway!

I am finally getting around to my big Vegas post.  I was waiting until we had all the sponser links from our big blogger meet up on Wednesday.  Natalie of What the Teacher Wants worked so hard on the photos and credits.  I hope your read on and enter the giveaway!

I presented on Tuesday for the I Teach 1st Conference for SDE. 

Here are some of the lovely attendees!  Someone even asked where my dog Niles was.  I loved that she knew the name of my dog from following me on Instagram and on my blog.   The attendees were so focused and kind.  My initial nerves were soon settled.   If you attended, I made up a post of links and freebies HERE

After presenting, I met up with some lovely teachers for dinner!  

While in Vegas, I hit the outlets via limo with some more blogging friends!  
Me, Amanda, Cheryl, and Tanya
 Kaci Hoffer, Katie Mense, Tanya Solano, Crystal Radke, Amanda Nickerson, Cheryl Saoud, & me.  Notice that my outfit is different than the one I left in!
My shopping finds!  I may have went a bit overboard at Tory Burch.  My friend Amanda was right there with me and helped me not feel as guilty! 
Tory Burch gave me a free phone case, since I am the only person left with an iphone 4. 

Dinner at Serendipity with some blogging beauties: Holly Elhe, Amy Lemons, Hope King, Michelle Oakes, Lindsey Erickson, Amanda Nickerson, Elizabeth Hall, me, & Natalie Kay 

Check out my GoNoodle Swag!  I mentioned that I use GoNoodle in one of my SDE presentations and they gave me these goodies.  My students love GoNoodle and after seeing their booth, I am going to upgrade from the free to premium subscription.   You can hide the Frozen song that way!

The extend of my gambling was the penny slots!  I am so not a gambler. 

 Now on to ....

The Huge Blogger Meet UP!!!

Our Teacher Blogger Meet Up was a HUGE success!! It was loud, it was crazy, and it was a completely full house, but that didn't stop us from having an incredibly fun time. 

My job was to hand out tickets at the door.  Tamara Russell gave me the most exuberant welcome ever when she came up to me.  She wasn't expecting me to be working the door.  She is so sweet.

We took over 200 pictures of the event and there's no way to showcase them all, but here are a few snapshots of the night.

It was so fun getting to meet some of our online bloggy friends for the very first time! Plus, we got to meet so many teachers from all over the country - we even had teachers from across the world!!
(Shout out to our friends from Spain and Australia!)
