Okay sweet friends. So to say I’m a bit overwhelmed by the fact that August is just one day away would be an understatement. Not because I don’t love my job, it’s just that I really love my summer and I have about 5,000 projects still left to do. My chest is starting to get tight just thinking about it. But…it all eventually gets done, right? Tell me I’m right y’all!
So lets get onto it. This might be why I’m just freaking out a little bit!
This is the current state of my classroom. Not cute. Right? Can you believe all my stuff is in those garbage bags. Tell me not to freak out. It gets all fancied up ever year, but man does it look like one big, daunting task right now.
And it doesn’t help that I haven’t been in to work on my room. Instead I took a fun little trip to Washington, D.C. with my hubby. We had an absolute blast. I love that man and a weekend away made me love him even more. Plus I got some very cool pictures for my upcoming class. Especially when we talk about George and Abe.

We had a private tour. Love it!
So… today I got back to business and this is the kind of business I love. I went to shop at Crayons to Computers. I posted about it last year and I wanted to post again. Yes…Crayons is in Cincinnati and services the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky schools, but there are similar stores elsewhere and they are truly a blessing. Crayons to Computers is a free store for teachers. They provide free items to thousands of teachers. It’s like walking into Toys R Us for the first time when you’re 3. Only so much better, because you never have to get out your wallet. Donors give literally thousands of items and they are stocked on the shelves for teachers to take. Some items have limits of the number teachers may take and other things have no limit at all. You just grab a cart and go. It’s fabulous!
Here are some pictures of the store today.
Tape, glue, index cards, pens, highlighters, staple removers and more.
Notebooks and super cute pencils.
Paper, clipboards, poster board, envelopes.
Dividers, folders, and more envelopes.
Lots of notebooks, charts, etc.
Scrapbook paper and stickers.
31 bags! Yes…Thirty-one donated all of those!
Batteries and battery chargers!
Stickers, gift bags of every size and crafting stuff.
Paint, adorable handwriting books and containers for your paint.
Felt in every color!
Cupcake stands with games. So fun!
See that bottom shelf. That is the shelf made of gold. Those would be chair pockets. Limit 25!
I get them every year.
A million fun cutouts, flash cards, games, etc.
I didn’t get pictures of close to everything. I also went home with 25 DVD’s. Good ones too! Like Horton Hears a Who and Ever After. I also brought home a bunch of new clipboards, a 3 hole punch and some fabulous, fun pens.
This store really is amazing and such a wonderful place for teachers. Make sure to check them out and see if there is one in your area.
They are also currently trying to win a technology makeover through Modern Office Methods.
Please click here and vote for C2C. They in no way asked me to post this, but I know they would appreciate the help. And they truly deserve it.
So I think that is it for now. I’ll be back with some freebies soon and I’ll be posting 2 fun units for back to school. I’m working like a dog to get them done for ya!
Have a great week friends.
PS. Do you all love my new blog look? I can’t thank Erin at Creating and Designing enough! I promise to fill in the blanks on those buttons soon!
