B2S with Teacher Created Resources


Have you been to the stores? Can you smell the new school supplies? While some of you are still in the middle of summer vacation, others are gearing up for Back to School 2015! We start back in just a little over two weeks so classroom setup and decor has been on my mind!

My new(to me) classroom has had a complete makeover since we left school in May. I can't wait to show you the before an after photos once everything gets set up. In the meantime, I CAN tell you that my new room colors are tan and black. Each year, I fall in love a little(but really...a lot) more with the "simple yet effective" classroom design which is why I am loving the new Chalkboard Brights design from Teacher Created Resources

Their entire line lets me keep to my clean and black theme while adding in pops of color to brighten things up. I already have their welcome sign and could not wait to grab a few more items before the new school year. 




 I am just LOVING this lesson planner and record book. I know that with a new grade level and more students, I am going to need to be on my A-game with grades this year. This record book is going to make managing grades and paperwork a breeze AND it matches my room. *swoon*


I also love that there is a separate section attached where I can jot down basic lesson plans and notes! Monday- Begin student-choice literature circles, Tuesday-Student blog posts, etc. 


I also snagged some new Chalkboard Brights labels because I use those for our parent information folders each year. 



Okay...these are seriously adorable. I am so excited about using them in the classroom. They fit easily on your finger and have a spot on the front side to write something on. I am going to use them when students have "ah-hah" moments and want to share something when they are working in small
groups. I can't wait to see a kiddo hold up a mini foam finger to share a thought or idea! *Perfect*


 And, I would be lying if I didn't express just how excited I am about my new chevron binder clips. I made my own days of the week clips in the past but they got used so much that the labels would rub off. These will be perfect to separate student work, copies, sub plans, and any other weekly papers that need to be organized and managed. *Can't wait"


And have you seen their Shabby Chic classroom decor? Oh my goodness.
