Power Towers

You've probably heard about power towers, and I just made my first set for Math.  Here is a great link to explain them Here

I made labels (since I love labels) to make it easier for me to make.  I used Avery 5164 labels which are the perfect size.  You can download my labels here. 

I hope that worked.  I haven't put files on here for so long, I think I forgot how!!  Let me know if they don't work.

Happy Beginning of School!

Wow.  So getting hired two weeks before school starts, in a new school district is tough enough.  Add in buying a house, moving by yourself with a 14 month old baby AND cleaning out a new classroom that had billions of years worth of junk in it, and I am exhausted. 

My room is coming together and I feel good about everything.

Husband will be moving down in a few weeks. 

Pictures soon!!

Good luck to everyone with Back To School!

Thanks for your positive thoughts, energy and prayers! I found a job today, and the best part is, that it is 3rd grade!!  I can't wait and I am so excited.  Yes, it's in a different district, and it's far away from where we live, but it pays better and the principal seems fantastic!  Now I can get back to planning for school (since it starts in two weeks) and I can FINALLY stop worrying about jobs.
