Spring Classroom Cleaning and Giveaway WINNER!

As bad as this sounds, I went up and spent a few hours at school on Saturday. Gasp! Why would I want to do that you ask?? Only because our school has the BEST PTA who furnished every.single.classroom with Smartboards!!! Oh yea, you heard me right. This gal got one over spring break!   So I made my way up there, with the help of my lovely mother, and we "flip-flopped" my library and calendar area.  I was SO pumped I got this new gadget that I {of course} went to TpT over my break and purchased a fabulous interactive calendar. Time for out with the old and in with the new y'all! {Thus my reasoning behind the "spring cleaning".}

 Needless to say, the kiddos were very shocked to see the new transformation when they walked in this morning! We LOVE using the Smartboard and can't wait to figure out all of the bells and whistles!  If you have ANY advice for my adventure with the Smartboard, I would love for you to shoot me a comment! I need all the help, tips, and pointers I can get!
Thanks to all of my followers who entered my very first giveaway. It was lots of fun to read your comments and watch the entries grow! The winner of the giveaway goes to....drumroll please....... Kelly Witt from First Grade Fairytales! Congrats Kelli! I will be emailing you shortly : )

Last week I linked up with Latoya for her Let's Get Acquainted linky where I came up with 2 truths and a lie. Here is what I left you with:

1. I started dancing when I was 5 and continued until 18. That's 13 years total!
2. I've been driving for 9 years and have had 4 cars in that time.
3. I'm a second generation teacher. My mom also teaches.

Number 1 and 2 are both truths. My lie was number 3. No one in my family is a teacher, I am in fact the one and only proud teacher!

Thanks for playing along in the linky and giveaway!


  1. That's awesome you just got your smart board in! Our PTA just paid for our boards so they should be coming end of April early May! I can't wait to start using but like you need tips!

    I also danced when I was younger for about 9 years! I have had 3 cars in 10 years. I need a 4th car! I'm also the only teacher in my family!

  2. This post makes me so happy! My kids and I LOVE our smartboard- it is used daily in almost every subject. I am 1st grade also and always making interactive smartboard presentations- I would be happy to send some you way to give you ideas on things you can do!! Is it sad I wish my school would open on a Saturday so I could do some spring cleaning?!
