Below you will also find an ebook of all the sponsors that are in the giveaways. Yes, that's right giveaways. Hooray! There are 4 prize packs of summer awesomeness.

We spend a day at zoo last week. It was great to see my little ones name animals and add information to their animal logs. Pictured below is a bald eagle. If you need something to do this summer don't forget to check out the things you can for free. Our local zoo has a free admission day. We plan on going back soon and the kids are working on what animals they want to see using the zoo map we have. You can grab three free zoo animal facts pages below for your students.



Enjoy this special summer freebie. You will find three 
animals at the zoo to write about with your little ones.

  16. I use the Tagzedo app to make a shape silhouette with all of my students' names in color, reverse the image, & use transfer paper to iron the image onto white t-shirts for a last-day gift. That way everyone can remember their classmates.

  17. If possible, go in early to get your classroom set up. That first week of preplanning will be chock-full of meetings, so you'll have a head start if you can jump in early.

  23. Hi and Happy Birthday! :)
    I'm hoping to win prize pack 2 or 3.
    My favorite EOY topic was new for me this year - teaching cursive! My kiddos really loved it this year.
    My tip for new teachers would be print a set of labels with for each students name at the beginning of the year. It will save time since you won't have to write their names a million times as you label things (books, folders, recording sheets, etc.) Then find a logical place to store the labels so you can find and use them all year. :)
