Classroom Library Sets & More!!!

Hey guys! I have been working hard on some new material for you! All summer, I have been focusing on making classroom library sets in different themes! So far, I have finished the following ones: Bright Colors, Animal Prints, Zebra Prints, Gingham, and Big Polka Dots! I think these posters and book bin labels are so fun! I am using zebra prints of all colors in my room this year, and I am so excited about using my Zebra Print Classroom Library Set! Here are the previews for all the different theme sets!






I have had SO MUCH fun making these! I hope you guys like them as well! I am also in the process of making Word Wall/Alphabet cards that match each of these different classroom theme sets! YAY!!! So far, I have finished the Zebra Print Alphabet Cards in neon green and hot pink! Here are the previews for those 2 sets!

Aren't they ADORABLE?!? I am making them to match ALL the theme sets! YAY! If you would like a custom color, please just e-mail me at and I will be HAPPY to make them for you for the same price as these cards! :) 

So, to celebrate all these FUN theme sets, I am going to give a Classroom Library Set and the matching Word Wall/Alphabet Cards to one lucky winner today! The winner can pick whatever theme they want! :) All you have to do is answer the following question by commenting below: 

Which genre is my favorite to read to my students during our interactive read aloud time?

The first person to comment with the correct answer will win!

If you would like to purchase any of my Classroom Library Sets and/or the matching Word Wall/Alphabet Cards, head on over to my TpT or TN store by clicking on the buttons below! I hope everyone has an awesome weekend! Much love! :)

A Story & SIX Freebies!!!

Happy Friday the 13th! I have a story and some freebies for you today! Ok, story first!!! :) So I was walking into Wal-Mart the other day, and I saw it! BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLIES!!! It was such a bittersweet feeling! I do love going back to school every year, but I LOVE being at home with my sweet little boy Sully all summer too! Well, of course I had to go browse a little bit! I saw a lot of the same things as last year, but some new fun things too! Last year I fell in love with using colored staples! I know it is the little things in life for a teacher! :) Guess what Wal-Mart has this year?? COLORED STAPLES!!! AND they were only 88 cents!! Woo Hoo! Score for me! Aren't they fun?!?

I was so excited about my little find! I bought 3 packs! Well, after my fun find in supplies, I headed back to the kid's section (seriously, by this time, I couldn't even remember why I went to Wal-Mart in the first place). I always like to browse in the kid's section to see what new, cute clothes I can find for my little Sully! Look what I found!!!

How cute is this shirt?!? I absolutely LOVE Dr. Seuss so this find made this Mommy/Teacher SOOO excited!!! I love to read Dr. Seuss, and I hope one day that Sully will love Dr. Seuss as much as I do!

OKAY, let's get to the freebies! I have been working on my stores a lot lately. Late last night (or early this morning, however you look at it), I decided to make several of my items free in both my stores! All SIX of the free items are pictured below, and all of them are available for FREE in both of my stores (Teachers Notebook & Teachers Pay Teachers)!!! Click on my store icons below the freebies to go download your copy! Don't forget to follow my stores while you are there! :)
