Last Minute Details.....

Quick post with a few pics of some last minute details and then I'm out.....I'm so tired I could fall over and this is just the beginning!!!  Does Starbucks deliver?!?!?

I found these little holders with magnets on the back at Dollar Tree and they are perfect to hold all the different Daily 5 choices.

I've been looking for a lamp for my reading area...found one a few weeks ago and then when I went to pick it up it was gone:(  So, too excited to walk into Marshalls yesterday and find this one:)

Also, I have had several requests for the Checking for Understanding checkmarks so, here ya go.....freebie for today:)  As I stated before, these are not my original idea but that of Tonya of Tonya's Treats 4 Teachers.



  1. Your room looks great! How did you make the job magnets? That would be a perfect solution for me!! Thanks

  2. Your room is just too cute!!

  3. Hey Kymberly...I just make them in Word in a table. I've bought lots of cute clipart and fonts so I used those (the first letter of each child's name is a fun clipart letter). Print on cardstock, laminate, cutout and put magnets on the back. Then they can be switched around when ever:)

  4. Girrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrl i am loViNG that lamp. :) So fabulous.
    I heard Starbucks has IV coffee drips for teachers;)

  5. LOVE that lamp!
    Checkmarks are great!
    Thanks so much for sharing!!

  6. You know I will need that!!!!! :))

  7. Love your pics...(the lamp is too cute). I like the magnetic baskets...and if I can't find any they shouldn't be too hard to make.

    AND if you find a Starbucks that delivers...send me the phone # :)

    What kind of finish is on your block walls? My district is getting a new building next year and I like the looks of your wall better than just painted concrete blocks.

  9. Found your blog today via Pinterest. I am a teacher as well but this will be my first year teaching fourth grade. Until now I have taught a year of k, two years of 2nd, and three years of 1st. I can't wait to check out your site & get some ideas for fourth graders. We started Daily 5 at my school this past year and I plan to take it to fourth grade with me. I love Daily 5!

  10. Mamie, the font I used was Elephants in Cherry Trees:)

  11. love the idea for the D5 choices ... do you have a pic of where they put the cards for their choices?

  16. Yeah, and at least you can PRINT now, sooo...... :)

  17. I wish Starbucks delivered too...

    But I do have ONE issue and I am not trying to be rude but...I created those check marks and you did not give me credit...i'm sorry, but please either take them down or give me credit. Thank you!

  18. tlroller,
    I am sorry...if you read my earlier post I stated that these were not my orignal design, that I tried to get to who made them but every time I tried to follow the "trail" it came back with a system error. My daughter made a set for me looking at the pics of yours. I in no way meant to "steal" anything and again, if you read the previous post you will see that. Your blog is blocked and set at private. I will happily give you credit. I will give credit to tlroller unless you would like it to be a different name or even blog. Sorry for the confusion, you can gmail me at if you would like to chat about this further.

  19. classroom is beautiful!! that lamp was such a wonderful find!

  20. Thanks for following...I am now following you, too. I'm glad you found me so I could find you! ;) Blogging is such a blessing! I've learned more since June 27 than I could imagine! I start back to school tomorrow (5:30a is going to HURT since I'm still wide-eyed and bushy-tailed right now!). Your room looks marvelous! I hope to get more pix tomorrow to show what I've done. :) I'm soooo excited about this year! Blessings and peace,
