Surprise In The Mail and New Toys

 I know I have already posted today, but that post was a real dud, so thought I would post another one!   I haven't shown you my surprise I received in the mail. I was so excited!!
 I can't wait to try it out!! On my next post I will show you how great it is and how easy it is to use.
I had to buy another new toy, my old printer bit the dust, so I went to buy a new one. I decided this time I wanted to go wireless, so I bought this awesome wireless printer. Believe it or not, it only took a few minutes to set it up. I can't even hear it when it prints!!
Don't look at the mess beside my printer! My kitchen table has become my workplace. I have to create a new space to work, this is not working for me.

When I first started creating things for my classroom, I really didn't know what I was doing as you can see from the pictures below. I made Days of the Week headers and Months of the Year headers(with pigs of course).

As you can see not very good!! Well after I found out how to use power point and all the tricks
 creating for my TpT store, I have improved(I hope).
 If you would like to see this Getting Piggy With It Back to School Theme for the classroom, just click on the picture above. It has
months of the year, days of the week, desk name plates, labels for cubbies and book bins, specials signs, color words, calendar numbers, birthday charts, a behavior chart, and color words.

Oh, I have changed from Google Reader to bloglovin, so if you haven't followed me on bloglovin just click on the bloglovin button on the side of my page.

Lots of Changes and a Freebie!!

 I can't believe it has been almost a month since I have blogged!! I have been very busy. My son got married on June 1 and before that, I had to clean out my classroom because I am now officially retired. Had an awesome retirement reception at my school with lots of friends and family. I have some pics of the retirement reception, but no wedding pics yet. I will post those when I get them. I am so anxious to see them!!
Here are pics of the reception.

This is my best friend! We both started teaching at my school at the same time and have been best friends ever since. We started out teaching in rooms side by side. I plan on doing some volunteering in her classroom, if my health permits.

 Some of the 1st and 2nd grade teachers I have worked with at EPS and EES.

I will have more pics later, plus I got a surprise in the mail I want to share with you, so check back later to find out what the surprise is!!

Now for the freebie!! This can be used as a lesson on beginning consonants or as a review! Hope you like it!!
