Hey Girl!

 I get a kick out of the Hey Girl sayings floating around Pinterest so I made a couple in honor of the big TpT sale. Feel free to pin if you wish.

 How many items on your wishlist? I am currently at 37 ;-) You may want to take advantage of the BTS sale Aug. 12 & 13th because TpT won't throw another any time soon! Everything in my store will be 20% off and you can get an additional 10% off if you enter the promo code BTS12 at checkout.
Here are some of my newest & best sellers if you need some ideas for your wishlist. You can click on the picture to go check them out.

Many different math games!

Today was my first day back to work. Getting up at 6 AM was torture. My district had all elementary teachers meet at the Fairmont hotel for a kick-off speech and then break-out training sessions. A continental breakfast and lunch were provided. They reasoned that other professionals are treated this way and we should start out our year treated that way, too. Although I enjoy the sentiment, I couldn't stop thinking about how much it cost and how that money could be better spent making our class sizes less than 30 or getting much needed technology into our rooms.

Speaking of rooms, my classroom is nowhere near ready! I have training on site tomorrow and meetings on Monday. That leaves only Tuesday before the kidlets arrive. I have our annual Cub Scout family camping trip this weekend so I can't work on my room this weekend. I was determined to decompress after the stressful year I had last year and I think I did too good a job. I can't seem to get stressed that I will only have one day to work on my room. That is very unlike me. The stress will kick in, the question is, when???
