Good Afternoon Everyone!

Today, I am linking up once again with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her monthly Currently!


I have recently fell in love with Paper Mate Flair Pens! I honestly do not know how I ever wrote without them. :)

 Of course, no teacher is complete without a great lesson planner and Erin Condren is by far the best.

Finally, no teacher should begin a new school year without a positive attitude! A new school year marks the beginning of a fresh start. However, you must choose as a teacher whether or not you are going to make this a great year for you and your students! The school I am placed in leaves the children with these words of wisdom everyday at the end of the announcements:
"Make it a great day or not! The choice is yours."

What are your back to school must haves?

  7. You found out your placement! How exciting! From the short time I spent in special ed, my tip would be get accustomed to Boardmaker. I used it for everything I did! I has a bit of a learning curve but once you get the hang of it, it is so simple to use!

    1. I wasn't sure what Boardmaker was before I read your comment, but I just looked it up! That is such a great resource and they have 30 trials, which would be perfect for my 6 week placement. Thank you so so much for showing me this great resource!
