new look!

Hey friends!

How do you like my new blog look?!
I'm still tweaking things and some parts are unfinished.
I'm not quite sure about the background.
I love the alphabet design, but not sure if the colors
are quite right. What do y'all think???
 
Since I'm switching grade levels,
I thought a new name was a must.
I've loved "Spend a Day in Second Grade"
but I thought I'd change to something universal
so if there are any more changes in the future {hopefully not anytime soon!},
 I wouldn't have to change names again.
Soooooo... I decided on Mrs. Prince & co.
 
{after I came up with the name I realized its kinda
like that new show, Mrs. Eastwood & Co. Anybody watch that?
My sister says its good!}
 
Even though things are a little "under construction"
around here I thought I would go ahead and post
about what I've been up to...
 
1. Packing.
I've slowly started to pack up my old room.
I think I can get in to my new building this summer,
but since I'm not sure which room is mine yet
I can't really go and unload anything yet.
And I'm definitely not taking it all to my
house!
 
2. Our church had their VBS last week, only
they call it M.A.D. camp.
Music, Arts, and Drama.
I loved it.
I helped with the 1st graders and had a blast.
The theme was iCreate and how everyone is
an artist in some way.
The projects were so different and creative.
It was definitely the best "VBS" I've ever been a part of.
To make it even better, our Sunday sermon series
has been the same theme and its been pretty
inspiring
 
3. Hanging out with my little girl! :)
 
 
4. Making over this blog.
The last time I changed a few things...colors, background, I was
ready to bash in my computer.
This time has been WAY smoother and you can learn
how to do just about anything you want to know
about blog design from YouTube.
Thank goodness!!!
 
5. Making new teaching goodies!
Since I'm moving to first, I've realized when packing up 
my stuff that there are some things I don't have that I'll
want up in my classroom.
I'm currenlty working on a poster pack of number words, 2-D shapes,
and more that will go with my color scheme.
 Here's a preview...
 


 
 Last summer I purchased several of the "Dots on Turquoise"
products and will keep that color scheme in my new classroom.
 
 
 
I just love these colors and especially paisleys!

Hopefully I'll be back posting later this week!

  5. ahh, Youtube for tutorials! Why didn't I think to look there?! I've been trying to figure it out on my own through written tutorials and they haven't worked! Feel silly paying someone again to design it when I own so much clipart myself! Thanks for the tip and love the header!

    1. That's exactly how I felt too...why pay someone when I already have the clipart!
