Tired feet, but excited heart (and a freebie!)

With the first teacher in-service day, open house, and a varsity volleyball match behind me, all I gotta say is phewwwwww! I picked up my weakness: a Mcdonald's double cheeseburger with big mac sauce, fry, and medium diet coke on the way home to perk me up :)

This will be a short post, but I had to update on my excitement! I've been excited all summer for this new teaching experience and adventure, but after today I have definitely reaffirmed my decision to make this move in my career! I work with a great bunch of teachers in a great school. Meetings were productive today and I got a lot done in my room! Open house was wonderful! We had around 30-40 parents between myself and my team teacher, and our Powerpoint Presentation went great! We are definitely the loud and fun team and darn proud of it ;) I took Christina's idea over at Second Grade Sugar and Spice and created these behavior management magnets to fit our school wide behavior management policy; "The Grizzly 5"

I've included the link to my TPT store that includes this freebie! As stated in my product description, I will gladly customize this for anyone who would like it for their room! I laminated these, cut them out, and put a sticky magnet on the back to pass out to all of my parents at open house. We explain to the parents that they can keep this on their refrigerator so students are reminded of classroom expectations and their is a consistent flow with home management and school. Our parents LOVED the idea and were excited to use them at home! :) 

I met some great parents tonight and a few of my new kiddos! I can't wait to meet them all on Thursday!! I'm off to bed, to get plenty of Z's for a big day of classroom work tomorrow. Tired feet but excited heart... I can't wait!!! :)


  1. I love the magnet idea! That's so perfect for parents to reference & serves as a reminder to the kids to make good choices. Thanks so much for sharing. I'd love these for my class!!
