5 for Friday Link Up with my Mega Giveaway!

Hey everyone! I linked up with Doodlebugs Teaching for their super fun 5 for Friday link up to let you know what I have been up to!  Be sure to head over to her site afterwards and see who else linked up this time. Just click her blog button at the end of this post!


  

So I went in this week to set up the classroom. YUCK! It was so hot and even though I put a map on the classroom door, every piece of furniture (except my desk and the 2 file cabinets which were never moved) were put back in the wrong spot. On a positive note my amazing mom stopped by and helped clean! She should get a mother of the year award for being in this hot classroom!

And another plus - we got a brand new reading series- Journeys. I think  I got everything unpacked and put away! The kids' books look so bright and fun!

PAINTING! I decided to paint this ugly area next to the door. It was very old, non magnetic blackboard. Last year I had my kids highlight their names and kept the highlighters nearby. They would hold their papers up on it and highlight away, highlighting the blackboard in the process. 

Here's a during (I totally forget the before) and after shot!

I also had these really ugly cabinets in the back. I am not 100% done with them. Something was up with the doors. Maybe they were fiberboard or a hybrid put the paint was not taking. It took  6 coats so I didn't get the tape off and hardware back on yet but here's a during shot and then an "almost done" shot!

And why did I have all of these glasses cases? Most were empty. And remotes to unknown devices! LOL

  7. I'm lucky and don't have to go back until after Labor Day with the kiddos. I go back for work days on Friday the 28th. My favorite school supply place is definitely Amazon. I ALWAYS buy my Flair pens from them. I like the pink or red sharpeners best.

    Thanks so much for all your work putting together these awesome giveaways!
