Five for Friday

Divider 1
I just whipped up these Open House/ Meet the Teacher Signs if you need a “Welcome” sign then go grab your grade level! I would LOVE feedback if you do download!!

Mine will be on my Smartboard during this time.  I made them pretty generic to work with any decor!

Here’s a sneak peek of just one of my displays in my room:

Be sure to follow on Instagram as more sneak peeks are coming until I can get back in my room and do a full reveal.  Next week we can’t go in AT ALL for cleaning….so it will be a little while 🙁

Divider 3

I’ve been working on some more technology themed room decor.  I don’t really have a theme…or didn’t want to but after creating a few things it kind of just fell into place.   Here are my iPhone name tags that will make their appearance in a TPT pack soon! They look so awesome on their desks! They display the grade level, their number and name along with some classic icons.

More on these coming VERY soon – stay tuned!

After Vegas I realized I needed to get into organized shape…therefore this binder was born.  I will be more organized….I will be more organized….if I keep repeating it – it has to work right?!  I really love the bright colors and how my dividers and cover accidentally match.

We moved 600 + miles and 2 states last weekend and my sweet mom left us these goodies on our new kitchen table! It was so fun spending the night in our new home.  I’m already loving being so close to family again and not 8 hours away …PLUS I get to decorate the nursery in our new house! So excited !!!

    The welcome sign is super cute!!! I just might have to snag that 😉 I also love your organizational binder. I was REALLY big into TpT about 2 years ago, and have been slacking major lately. I'm hoping to get back into it soon!
