2. Have you all heard of "Scentos". Stephanie asked me to pick some up for her in at Michael's craft store because right now they are 49 cents there (usually a dollar). They are super cute and are all scented. Kids love to sniff their papers after you write a little note or put a smiley face on their paper. The little things that make kids happy in Primary :) True to teacher style, I totally cleaned that Michael's out.
By the way... you can follow me on Instagram. That's actually starting to be a great way to find out about deals like this when bloggers share them as they find them!

4. Whose already working in their classroom for next year? I tell myself to stay away but I have already arranged my room, put up fabric for bulletin boards and bought my border for boards. Not to mention taking on a major classroom library overhaul. It's like a second home... I can't stay away! And it just keeps getting messier each time I go in evidenced in the photo below! By the way have you ever looked at a bulletin board at the end of the year and thought..."Why did i think that looked good?' That red bulletin board is U-G-L-Y and it came down super fast!
5. You know you are desperate with an overload of lamination to cut when you bribe your friends 5 and 6 year old to help you! And it all actually got cut out! Their mom was super happy about the bottle of Sunkist they earned! ;)
