A Whole Bunch of Random!

It's time for a post full of totally random things and that's why I'm linking up with Sunday Smorgasbord!
 This week I actually got to go and work in my classroom! This may or may not be a shocker, but sometimes during the summer I get down right bored being at home. There are times when I long to be back in my second home to work. Who ever thought that would be coming out of a teacher's mouth!? 
First thing I worked on was redecorating! I found these cutie patootie chairs at Target, added a rug from TjMaxx, and have a cozy new reading nook for read to self and read to someone!
I also worked on the dreaded task of cleaning out my files. PTL!! I.am.done.  I've only been teaching 2 years and felt the need to purge...uhhh what's wrong with that picture? Can we say hoarders??
I'm also part of a giveaway from Polka Dot Firsties!
Head on over to her blog by clicking the picture below to enter her birthday celebration and blogging anniversary giveaway for a chance to win some great prizes!!
Off to finish making some new crafts for my classroom. Does a teacher ever rest?? Head on over to Fabulous in First for some more great smorgasbord fun!


  1. I completely understand where you are coming from! This will be my 11th year of teaching, and my 10th year in first grade. I love having my summer vacation, but by this point in the summer my mind begins going through all the things I need to do to get my classroom ready. Thankfully, I will be able to go in my classroom this week and get a few things done, because there is NEVER enough time to get it all done during pre-planning.

  2. You are a brave soul to clean out those files. I am hoping to do it as I use my files during the school year!!! :)

    Carried Away in... K!

  3. I too did A LOT of purging and cleaning of files this summer... I recently got a hover cam and I am going to 'go digital' as much as possible with the papers I decided to keep! I went from 2 drawers of a horizontal cabinet to only about 6 inches of files!!! So nice!

  4. I cleaned my files out at the end of the year. First time ever! I'm headed back to my classroom next week and love decorating! I try to go ahead of everyone else so I have all the paper and whatnot to myself! Ha! It's also quiet and I don't flit my day away chatting with everyone!

  5. For some reason, I can't see the two pictures, and I'm DYING to see the chairs from Target! AHH!
