2 Made It's, A Hop and A Giveaway

Today I am in total freak out mode. . . teachers report back to school next Monday ~ YIKES! How am I going to finish setting up my room, plan for my incoming Superstars and get all of my Pinterest projects done?  See what I mean. . . freak out mode.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Tara for hosting this party all summer long.  You've helped to keep me focused on completing at least SOME of my classroom projects.  This week I tried to focus on the functional like Tara talked about here. I forgot my camera connector at home so all of the pictures below are from the original blogs listed. I pinky promise that I really did make them.
I loved using shaving cream with my kindergarten kids.  It's cheap, easy and fun.  Sometimes we used their tables, and sometimes we used trays or plastic plates.  Next year I still want to use shaving cream with my 1st graders.  Thanks to Callie from Teach a Roo I can now kick this activity up a notch with my kids.  If you would like to get your own free download click here.

I also finished up working on my Lucky Ducks sticks. I found this idea from Judy of KinderTastic almost a year ago and I finally decided to make it.  Click here to see her original post.  BTW my can is not as cute as Judy's but I still love it.

If you would like to find some more great ideas for your classroom, hop on over to the blog Endless Pinablilties. This week we are hosting a Back to School Pin Party.  Be sure to check back every day to see pins from some great bloggers.  I will be sharing my post on TUESDAY morning.  In honor of Tara, some pins will be FUN and some will be FUNCTIONAL.

Don't forget to enter my Summer-bration Giveaway. This is just my way to say THANK YOU.  
For this giveaway, YOU get to pick your prize.  I will be using Rafflecopter to select three lucky winners who will each get a $15.00 gift card to one of the stores listed.  The giveaway ends at midnight on Thursday, August 9th ~ GOOD LUCK.

Well, I'm off to hang with the family.  SHINE on everyone!

    1. Oops I forgot my 3 stores!
      Target (love it!)
      Dollar Tree
      Any Teacher Store
      I LOVE to shop! :)

  14. I LOVE all of those stores! Who can go in there without finding something?! Target has been my BFF this summer because of their colored caddies and book bins. I would most likely choose Walmart because they have the cheapest prices and they have EVERYTHING! :)

  15. I would love the Target gift card but I live in a Target-free town! I have been finding lots of great items at the Dollar Tree, so that would be my pick.

  28. Oh man! I'd have to choose Walmart (I have to drive hours to get to target)...however, I'd choose Target over Dollar Tree. Our Dollar Tree stinks and Target has those wonderful $1 spots! :)
