Supply Labels! & Washi Tape Addiction

In honor of taking my summer seriously this year (seriously meaning not planning and organizing my school materials), I've started packing up my room early! My district's last day isn't until June 19th, and time is crawling. 

Good news! I made supply labels! 
There are two themes - chalkboard and herringbone. I couldn't choose, so I currently am using all of them :)

I have a WASHI TAPE ADDICTION. I used different patterned tapes to place the labels and covered them in clear packaging tape to make them more durable. Super cute! My co-workers are jealous :)
If you want to get in on this early organization and classroom pack up party, these beauties are available on my TPT STORE!

Talk to you guys soon! Have a great weekend!

FREEBIE FRIDAY - "Welcome Back Spring" Bulletin Board!

Happy Friday!
Today was a balmy 60° in Chicago! Rolling out of bed this morning, I had to fight the urge to wear sandals :) 

In honor of the First Day of Spring, I created a fun "Welcome Back Spring!" bulletin board!
"Welcome Back Spring" bulletin board in my classroom! 
This bulletin board was super quick to put together and it really brightened up my classroom. CLICK HERE to download a FREE PDF of all the materials I used to create this board!


1. Click the link to access the FREE PDF on Teachers Pay Teachers (login or create a free account).

2. Download and open the PDF on your computer. Print out all of the pages (in color if you can!) 

3. Start cutting! (I found two students willing to lend me a hand during lunch) 

To make my letters and images "pop" a little bit more, I glued my letter to colored construction paper. 

Because I have mild OCD, I also laminated them so that I could save them for future use (and also because I really like when things are shiny :)).

4. Staple the pieces to your board and you're good to go! You can use my layout or create your own. 

Have a GREAT weekend!
