Happy Memorial Day

Now that I am back in the land of the living it is starting to sink in that I AM ON SUMMER BREAK :) Ahhhhhh such a great feeling!! I still have 2 more days to be at school this week, but I don't care, the kids are home until August!! Wednesday is one final dose of Common Core training before the summer, and tomorrow is our post planning day ( which is basically just make sure all your ducks are in a row and clean up your room day). I'll be spending most of it cleaning and organizing my room but NOT PACKING!! I was very excited (and relieved) to find out on Thursday that I will be returning to teach Kindergarten AND I'm in the same room. The month of May is a stressful one in the life of an annual contract teacher, and this year was especially hard with many of us returning, but many of us finding out that there "are no positions available". What a sad way to end the year :(

But on the bright side I am overjoyed not to be changing rooms. Last year I never got around to renting a storage unit so the contents of my classroom were spread across 3 garages and most of my dining room. No good. Much more to come on some of my new organizing and decorating ideas for my room...Pinterest is a beautiful thing :)

For now, I am linking up again with Classroom Freebies and sharing another ocean freebie. I hope this will be helpful for those of you still struggling through those last few days of school! I just cannot get enough of these cute ocean buddies from KPM Doodles!! (PS. Everything in my store is still 20% off today in celebration of Memorial day!!)
