Currently and getting back into a routine!

It's August 1!
 
That means that it's time for me to get back into my routine. Time to start thinking about classroom decor, lesson plans, TpT resources, and anticipating the day that my new class comes for the first day of school! Only 25 days until I have my first 4th grade class and the 2013-2014 year begins!
 
Part of getting back into my routine is joining my sweet friend Farley of Oh Boy 4th Grade in her awesome monthly post Currently!
 
Here is what I am up to CURRENTLY....
 
 
I am ready to shop!
 
As you mught have figured out by now, Frixon Pens are my FAVE pens! I am a little OCD about scribbles and white out and these little beauties are my best friends! They really do erase like a pencil and are perfect for all the notes, lessons and grading that I will be writing very, very soon!
 
 
 
As I get my classroom ready, I am in need of SEVERAL containers! I am going to use these for stations, supplies and for the kiddos to turn in their papers.
 
 
 
Last but definitely not least is my classroom theme! BLACK AND BRIGHT!
I absolutely love Ladybug Teacherfiles and will be purchasing several of her beautifully created classroom materials to brighten up my classroom!
 
 
 
 
I'm off to prepare and create!
 
Make sure to check out my TpT store to get updates on all my newest little creations

I bought one of those white containers last year for the grade, copy, file idea. Then I also found one at Walmart that has 4 different colors, 2 drawers of each color. It was an AWESOME way to organize my materials for the week. I love the idea of using them for stations!

I'm doing a small giveaway on my blog as part of a Virginia Bloggers blog hop starting Sunday. I'll be giving away three $10 TpT cards. Every little bit helps, right? Hope you'll stop over and enter!

Yu are the second person who mentioned Frixion pens, I'll have to check them out! I also have a TPT list that is a mile long! They really do need to pay teachers more, just to keep up with our Back to School habit!

I love the black and bright colors theme. I was going to that, but I fell in love with tuquoise and dots theme.

I feel like every year I need containers! There just is not enough room to store everything!

I can never have enough plastic containers. I think I should buy some Sterilite stocks. My retirement account could use some help :)

I can never have enough containers! I moved out of my classroom this year and got rid of bunch, only to buy some more this summer! It' a disease!
