I found a linking party! 🙂 How fun! As a blogging neophyte (don’t you like my fancy word for new at something???)…this is AMAZING! I can get a chance to see what others are doing in their classrooms and share ideas! 🙂 Others can come and visit my page and see what I’m up to! 🙂 How fun!
I just found five other teachers to follow! 🙂 I’ve got so much laundry to do…but this is so much fun! 🙂 Check out Ladybug’s Teacher Files…she’s got a zebra theme going in her room that will be perfect for one of my first grade team mates! 😉 Can’t wait to tell her about the zebra lamps! 🙂
I’m reading Chrysanthemum to my class during the first week of school and the teacher from ‘Shining & Sparkling in First’ has a cute little packet of activities to do on her TPT site! 🙂 These will flesh out my schedule for the remainder of the day! 🙂 Check out her packet preview! 🙂
So…since this particular linking party is about what you’ve bought for school…I will share that I’m going to switch my classroom theme this year from apples to pirates! 🙂 A colleague of mine is going to make me some curtains…here are the two prints that I liked. Which one do YOU think would make a better set of curtains? I’ll be going to Walmart tomorrow to make my final purchase! 🙂 Comment away! 🙂
Okay…so…I probably shouldn’t be doing a zillion linking parties…but…I really love meeting new people! 😉 I also found something called a ‘currently’ party! 🙂 That’s where you tell folks what you’re doing currently. Thanks to Mrs. Pretzel for passing this idea on through her site! 🙂 I’m one of her newest fans and you should be too! 🙂
So…this is my currently post! 🙂 What are you doing currently? 🙂

I vote for the aqua fabric! "Go Bright or Go Home!" That's my motto 😉
LOL! 🙂 I'll keep that in mind! 🙂 Thanks so much! 🙂
Ms. Pretzel says
Thanks Tamara! I actually linked up with Oh Boy Fourth Grade and Farley, who is a blog legend and does these monthly linky parties.
You can check her out here:
Then you can link up your page there and meet other teachers. If you go to the right side of her blog she even has groups listed by grade. Looking forward to following your blog. I agree with Daina above. I think the aqua fabric is great.
Thanks for the link!! I am now a follower!!
Wow! 🙂 You are follower NUMBER 2!!! 🙂 So exciting! 🙂 Thanks so much for the link to Oh Boy Fourth Grade…I just started following her yesterday…but had not seen the blogs listed by grade! I'm going to go through it a bit more tonight and see if I meet some other cool 'firsties'! 🙂 Thanks for your thoughts on the curtain fabric! 🙂 Stay tuned…I'll be making the big reveal in my classroom on Friday! 🙂

I am glad you joined in on blogging. I love it. I am also your newest follower. I would love for you to come and visit me when you get the chance. =)
Hey there, Heather! 🙂
LOL @ my 'currently'…girl…EVERYTHING is pirate-y these days! 🙂 I just can't help myself! 🙂 So glad that you like my blog and will be following me! 🙂 I will go visit you right now! 🙂
