Alphabet Lines Galore for your Classroom Decor!!!


My alphabet lines have been always a popular product for me since I made my first Jungle themed one for my own classroom back in 2011 ;) Since then, I've made LOTS more of them. I get so many requests for different themes, fonts, etc. I try to get to all of the requests that I can....but sheeeeew!!! Summertime is always so much busier than anticipated!! Here is a list of the ones that I have in my store right now ;)

CAMP GoNoodle=Free, Fun, Adventure {Linky Party}

Ahhhhhhhh!!!! It's Summertime!!!!!

Summertime means S.L.O.W.ing down, having time to do what I want, when I want! It means FREEDOM and spending lots of time with my BOYS!!!!

But, if you're a Mom, especially a Mom of THREE little boys, like me....then, you know that Summertime is NOT a time of relaxation. There is no putting your feet up, NO time to yourself and No peace and quiet!!!! Hahahaha!!

My boys are a little....well, NUTS! LOL!!! They need to be distracted entertained at all times, or they are wrestling, fighting and jumping off the furniture. I don't want to spend my Summer in the E.R. more than I have to...so, I keep my boys busy. They are VERY active and they LOVE being outdoors!!! Here are a few things that we have already been busy doing this Summer. This is what being a BOY MOM looks like ;)






I have found a PERFECT program to help with keeping my boys active. With this program you will hear the words ACTIVE, OUTDOORS, ADVENTURE and FREE!!! 
Sign. Me. Up!!!!!!

It’s  Camp GoNoodle!
Camp GoNoodle
Camp GoNoodle is a free online program for kids to stay active and be creative this summer! If you’re a teacher, then you probably already know and love GoNoodle for the classroom….. but now, as a PARENT, you’ll love this summer extension called…

Camp GoNoodle!

If this is your first time hearing of GoNoodle -- Camp GoNoodle is a great introduction that you can do with your whole family! 

Trust me, your kids will GO CRAZY for Camp GoNoodle!

Here’s How It Works:
1. Head to “camp!” Each Monday starting June 29, a new set of five adventures will appear at campgonoodle.com.   #fourweeksoffun
2.  Go on new adventures every week! Each adventure uses GoNoodle.com’s active videos and games for inspiration, and challenges kids to use their imaginations, get moving, and be outside. Picture building your own DIY jetpack, creating an obstacle course race, or making sushi with things you already have at home. #somuchfun
Example Adventure

3. Sing along! Each week includes two brand new camp songs to inspire creativity and movement! #campjams
Camp Fire
4. Connect with fellow campers! Share your adventures using the #campgonoodle hashtag on social media to join the camp community. Each week, “Campers of the Week” will be recognized as “All-Stars” and earn exclusive Camp GoNoodle prizes. #lovethatgonoodleswag
5. Earn badges! Complete each week of adventure by printing the weekly badge to hang up, loud and proud. #bestcampever

All you need for Camp is...
 GoNoodleInternet MachineActive & Creative
a free GoNoodle account           a device with internet access          a family ready for adventure


Ready to register for camp? 

Simply go to campgonoodle.com on Monday (June 29th) and let the fun begin!

Note: If you are a teacher who already has a teacher/school GoNoodle account, you will need to go to this link to sign up to receive Camp GoNoodle emails:
http://gndle.me/1IdCN2F

{This is important because Camp emails are only being sent to parent accounts. GoNoodle knows lots of teachers use their school accounts at home – which is completely fine, they just need to make sure they get those teacher-parents in the Camp email list too!}

So who’s going to join us in celebrating summer with Camp GoNoodle???

My friend Holly from Mrs. Ehle's Kindergarten Connections has teamed up with GoNoodle and is hosting this LINKY PARTY!!!!

Target Dollar Spot Teacher Deals...and LOTS of Em!!!!


OMGoondess, you guys!!! Have you been to your Target Dollar Spot lately????? Be prepared to spend A LOT of money if you do!!! This stuff is AMAZING AND SUCH a great price!!!!! The first thing I saw when I walked in, was this GLORIOUS sight!!!!!! And, when I saw that they came in ORANGE and gray, I almost peed my pants!!!! Seriously!!! This stuff excites me SO much, I can't even handle it!!

These were my FAVORITE little centers supply baskets last year AND in my colors!!!! SQUEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!  

I have issues. These bad boys are only $1 each!!!! AND, they only come around during "back to school" time! AND, the thing with the Dollar Spot is....you never know if this stuff will EVER be back!!! Will you ever see it again??? AND in these colors?? So, it just makes sense that you have to buy EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. that you can find in your colors! RIGHT????? LOL!!!!


Here is how I use these little caddies in case you were wondering ;)

And, here are some more bins that came in my colors!!!!! I didn't get quite as carried away with them :) I restrained myself from buying every single one they had...but, man it was hard!! Hahaha!! I still can't believe that they come in ORANGE!!!!


Next up, is this little hanging accessory holder!!! There were 2 of them....so, you guessed it!! They BOTH went in my cart!! Ha!


Ummmm....can you believe it??? ORANGE pocket charts?!?! Get RIGHT out of town!!! A Polka Dot dry erase planner!! AND a super cute little chalkboard/dry erase easel!!


Check out these ADORABLE little glass jars! They are chalkboard with handwriting lines on them!! Too, too cute to pass up!! I threw 3 of them in my cart. If I don't use them in my classroom, they will make GREAT Back to School gifts for my kids' teachers!!
Those little black clipboards!!! I have a plan for those ;)
And, Cute black and white bulletin board borders!


Check out these adorable banners!!! The one on the left is a dry erase banner!! I think they will be soooo cool in my writing center! The kids can actually write on the banner! Ahhhhh!! Brilliant!
And, these cute chalkboard banners too! These will be part of my decor.


OMG!!!! Pencil buckets and matching clips??? NO teacher in the entire world could pass these cuties up!!!! The clips also came in black! Sadly, this was ALL my target had!! I would have bought them out of this cute stuff too!!! Ha!


And, just some random fabulousness! Mini Seuss lunchboxes to hold my Seuss games. Pens with 6 colors for the Write the Room center! Pointers and Stickers.


This is what my cart looked like today! Hahahahaha!! People were looking at me like I was CRAZY! And about 10 people asked me if I was a teacher. LOL! 
What kind of goodies did you find at your local Dollar Spot??? Leave me a comment and let me know if I need to keep searching! ;)
