2015 Calendars

 I can't BELIEVE another year has gone by. Truly.
And when I think back to all that has happened this past year,
my family and I are truly blessed.
Even through difficult times, there's always a reason to sing
and worship the Lord.

Today I wanted to tell you that my new 2015 calendars are available
in my Etsy shop. I updated the colorful one from last year and also
made a black and white one this year, too.
Get them HERE.

I've got several other printables available in my Etsy shop
that you could add to one of the calendars to get organized
this year!




The winner from my last post who wins a free copy of my teacher planner
is Lori Raines!
Look in your email Lori for your new planner!


New Year, New Plan!

I'm a color snob and I'm not ashamed to admit it.
Sure it costs more, but I love drooling over colorful calendars, planners, stationary,
and pretty much any sort of paper product. ;)

So, obviously I get super excited to print out all new 
calendars, planners, and such when the new year rolls around. Hashtag nerd.

If you get excited for starting fresh with a new calendar or planner, I get you!
I'm almost updating my 12 Month Calendar and it will be available in my
etsy shop in the next few days. I'm also working on a cute black and
white version in case you do want to save on color ink.

If you are a teacher or homeschooler and are wanting a 
fresh new look when you're writing lesson plans,
{using a stylish planner really does make it more fun!}
you can get my teacher planner for 50% off now through the rest of this school year!
Only $5.00 to give your plans an updated and fresh look....that's a steal in my opinion.

The planner includes a PDF file with all the dates prefilled in the weekly planning pages
and the monthly calendars. You also get a PowerPoint file that has a template of most
of the pages that you can add text boxes and fill subject headings or type in your plans. The graphics
you see on all of the pages are NOT editable or movable. In the past, I've used the blank weekly
planning page in the PowerPoint file to create visual plans for Deedee's visual plans link up, so
you could do that too.
You can purchase the planner here.
Leave a comment if you'd like to win a copy of the teacher planner. I'll pick a winner
randomly tomorrow night. :)


Free Posters and What I Bought

We studied the five senses a few months ago and I made these posters to use during our unit.
 You can grab them for free in my TpT shop here. :)
Go here to see a FREE five senses activity with popcorn.

So, did you go Cyber Monday shopping!?!
I'm on a total budget this month with Christmas coming and all, but I did pick
up a few monthly staples that I use in my classroom that I just love. 

Reagan's Math Journals have been a great addition to my math workshop
time this year. Even though we are being hounded about how many
copies we make, hashtag paper police, I've prioritized so we can do 2-3
of these per week. I love that in her December set, which I bought during the
cyber sale, many of the activities are half sheets....saving more paper!
The other thing I bought was Christina's December Just Print Fluency Pack.
I mostly use these with my below level small groups, but even
those high achievers like a little nonsense word practice every now and
then. The short partner plays are perfect for my groups, too!

See? I said I was on a budget. I really had to use the reins this time, but
I love looking through Blog Hoppin's linky where bloggers share what
products they bought. I love discovering new stuff and loading up 
my wishlist for the next sale. ;) You can check out the linky here.
