Mom, Do I Have To?!?

I'll complain here, because only other teachers can fully understand the excruciating pain of going back to school after a long break. Don't get me wrong, I am a smidge excited to see my kiddos, especially because I'm sure they've all grown like 10 feet (I better wear my big-girl shoes tomorrow). But... I have had the most phenomenal 2 weeks ever! Not for any special reason, only because I've done really nothing but sit the majority of it. I love every second of it. This can only explain how I feel about tomorrow:

I have been ubber busy creating things so when I get back to school I have things ready freddy! Unfortunately our fairly new resources don't cover everything they're put in our fresh-off-the-printer district outcomes. Perfect. So I've been busy putting my creative juices to work. I feel bad because I don't have pictures of finished projects and such yet, because I haven't been at school, but as I make them I'll be sure to post pictures!

I have been posting things in my Teacher's Notebook store, and I posted 2 things tonight. Including 1 fabulous planner that I spent forever on! I wanted the perfect planner for my life, so the only reasonable answer was to make one!! Hopefully it helps someone out there! I'll try to get it together tomorrow and post a picture!!

I must be off to bed soon, as I've been going to bed way late, and sleeping way late (10:00am... I know, I'm not sure the last time I was able to sleep until 10am, but apparently my body went retro, circa 2000's and let me sleep until 10!). I'll be sure to post things as soon as I make them!! :)

wizard of oz themed - yea baby!!

this unit was a nightmare! i am not looking forward to teaching this!
rocks, earth's layers, recycling, decomposition, fossil fuels, the whole 9 yards!

I love your stuff! I'm a new teacher who is pretty technologically savvy. I was wondering what kind of program you use to make these wonderful things so I could start making my own for the classroom? Thanks!
