Back-2-School Prep: Getting a Head Start!

· · · ·

Oh my! I blinked and July was over! Does anyone else ever feel like July is so short compared to June?

My school’s “Open House” night is coming up soon! We always have it 2 days before the first day of school– I get both nervous and excited every year!

This year I’m trying to get ahead and do small things now (so I don’t have to stress right before). I wanted to share a few of my tools and some freebies with you!

First, I made these editable teacher business cards to give to my parents!

I printed, laminated, and glued a magnet on the back of each card– so now they can’t lose my contact information! You can click the link above or on the product cover below to download your free copy and start prepping right away!

Next, I saw this adorable post on pinterest– and decided I would recreate it to match my classroom color scheme (navy). So, I bought 3 sets of navy striped bags from Target and a box of crayons for each of my students. The bags totaled $3, and the crayons were $0.50 each at Walmart.

Inside each bag I put 2 Ticonderoga pencils (tip– use the pre-sharpened kind), a box of crayons, and I’m in the process of cutting out these oh-so-adorable student bookmarks (one for each student). I may also include a small eraser, but I haven’t had time to go back to Walmart yet.

I then used washi tape (you know you have a TON of that stuff) to attach a tag to each bag! And, voila! Easy, simple, and cute!

You can access these free tags in my growing resource library! Click HERE to download a free set of tags (I only included the colors navy and red) for grades 1st-4th! Hope they help you plan ahead! 

Lastly, I’m getting my room decorations up and running! I’m almost done. I just have a few things to finish here and there (post coming soon!) But I was able to post my cursive alphabet line yesterday– It’s in Zaner Bloser! Here is the cover if you want to check it out: 

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a blessed day!
