Indiana Bloggers Back to School Blog Hop

Who is excited to go back to school???  I never thought I would say this, but I am!!!  As a lot of you know I am changing grades this year.  I am leaving 2nd and moving to 1st and I just can't stop thinking about it.  I am really nervous, but I know it is going to be so much fun.

I have teamed up with some fellow Indiana Bloggers for a Back to School Blog Hop.  Make sure you follow it all the way through for your chance to win gift card!  Who doesn't LOVE a gift card?

Teaching Through Turbulence

If you started at the beginning of the hop you just came from Teaching Through Turbulence.  I have to give Heather major props because she is a Special Education teacher who works with children with Emotional Disabilities.  That can be a tough group of kiddos.  You have to have a good heart and a lot of patience (patience is NOT one of my strong suits, but I am working on it).  She has a lot of great ideas that can be incorporated with your mainstreamed kiddos.  Check her out!

So the beginning of the year is a time where you want everything to be perfect!  At least that is how I view it.  I would say the most important things to have in place are organization, routine, and behavior plans.

I have created some really cute Owl Themed Agenda Signs to help you with the routine aspect.  Students thrive off of a routine.  They love to see what they have done and what is left to do.  So grab up these freebies and you will be well on your way to a great year.

Now I would like to share my absolute FAVORITE creation.  I have gone a little lemonade ga-ga this summer.  I created a comprehensive pack of Classroom Management Tools.  You can check out the post about it HERE.  It is a mix of individual and whole class behavior plans.  I try to use a positive approach and I think you will agree that I hit the nail on the head with this one.

I really want to thank you for stopping by.  Stay tuned for my blog makeover reveal coming soon!  I can't wait to see the finished product.  I hope you have a wonderful year!

Next stop on the hop is Pencils, Books, & Dirty Looks!



  1. 1. WOW. I love the owl signs. I may have to reconsider my classroom theme of "Around the World"...
    2. Your lemonade classroom management idea is darling. I love it.
    3. I'm excited to see your new layout reveal. I'm up next to have mine redone too. Exciting!

    Happy Saturday!

  2. Your lemonade management pack is just SO cute. I usually do a lemonade stand with my class at the end of the year, so I will definitely keep that in mind if I end up with a job this year!

    Blog makeovers are SO exciting- I just got mine redone! I can't wait to check back and see it :) Thanks for the freebie!
