Something Old, Something New {Freebie}

Hey guys! It has been a whirlwind of a few weeks here! We have been to Birmingham, to Nashville, to North Carolina, back to Birmingham, and back home. My sweet, sweet Aunt Eula {who was actually my great, great aunt} passed away, which led us to North Carolina. It was Ellie Grace's first long car trip, first flight, and first time to meet our family there. She did very well and it was nice to catch up and reminisce about all the things we remembered, loved about, and learned from my aunt {she taught first grade for over 30 years!}. During that trip and since, I've been working on some new posters for my classroom. I've seen tons of really cute decor packs, but none exactly like what I wanted, so I created one. It includes primary colored alphabet, numbers 0-20, 2D and 3D shape, and color posters in a polka dots, chevron, and stripes. I really do like the way they came out! If it's something you're interested in, click the picture below {it's on sale for $5 today and tomorrow!}.

Something else new that happened when I was gone was that Google Reader went away. I've personally always read blogs from my dashboard and went to the actual blog, but I've also started using Bloglovin' and am liking it so far. I would love if you would continue to follow me with Bloglovin' {that way you don't miss any of the fun!}.
Now for something old. I'm linking up with Cara for Throwback's a post from last summer {these are now updated to include 4th and 5th grade!}

I love sending my new kiddos postcards before school starts! I think it sets the tone for our year and really show the kids and their families that their teacher cares :). I usually buy some, but decided to make my own this year and thought I would share with you. There are 3 different front sides (for K, 1st, and 2nd) and 3 different backs (we have Open House, so mine says that and I also teach in a small town and already know a lot of the kids so I put "see you" on mine, but added a version that says "meet you"). You should be able to print the front side, then (depending on how your printer loads paper), put the paper back in and print the back. I would love for you to let me know if you're able to use these (or if they don't print correctly!!).

Can you believe we go back to school in a month??


  1. Your primary punch is awesome! I like to send cards to my kiddos too...if we get our list in time. Thanks for sharing this again with us! Stop by for my Throwback Thursday post plus a FREEBIE!
