You Know It's Back to School Time....

I can't believe that summer is coming to an end and that I will be back to school on Monday.
I am so excited about the new school year but I am going to miss my summer....

Jeannie at Kindergarten Lifestyle is having a linky and I thought I would join in! Here are a few ways that I know that a new school year is right around the corner.....

Throughout the summer, I collected TONS of great freebies and bought some AWESOME products from Teachers Pay Teachers.  Now it is time to magically transform my fabulous finds from digital files to decor for my classroom!  I have been to Office Depot to buy ink twice this week and I still have more to print. 
It all looks so cheerful and bright when printed in color!!

After using all the ink to print out my goodies I have to preserve them!  It's a very good thing that my school is generous and allows us to laminate to our hearts content. I can't imagine what type of bill I would rake up if I had to take it to a teacher supply store to get all my things laminated!!

Just the thought makes me tired! During the summer, I love to stay up late! I do some of my best work at 1 in the morning and what I love most about summer is that I can stay up late AND still get my 8 hours of sleep! Once the school year begins, my bedtime drastically changes from my usual 2 am to 9:30! Whoa!!

and last but not least...

This is a must! I will be making sure to add specific times into my schedule for reading and writing posts. Blogging has been such a wonderful way to share,  learning and grow as a teacher and I plan to continue on this fabulous journey! 

How do you know it's time to go back to school?

I am such a night owl myself...the hardest thing about a new school year is adjusting my schedule! Yikes. Good luck with your new school year!

Oh my! I have used a lot of colored ink lately! And I just can't get to bed early. Makes for a tired morning. :)
