Monday Made It Baby! My Clipboard is So Fancy!

Hey love bugs! I hope all is well and that most of you are on summer break. If you're not, just know the end is near. I must admit I have been enjoying the rest and relaxation but I do miss my Firsties. Okay so here goes the reason why I'm writing today. Many of you may know that I'm on Instagram and I shared a picture of my clipboard that I created for myself. The beautiful Tara from
4th Grade Frolics made a comment on my photo to link this up on Monday Made It. Of course! I love her and her linky party! Now I've been a FAN of Monday Made It for a couple of years now and I get so many FAB ideas. Not only for the classroom, but also for my home. I had to present to my colleagues about technology and Tara's blog and her Monday Made It linky party was included in my presentation. Thank you Tara for this awesomeness. I have seen these clipboards for about 4 years now and I've been given a few as a gift and I LOVE them! The creativity you can do with these are endless. I will say that step 2 and 3 can be switched with one another. It just depends with how you prefer to do it.I decided to make myself one and my team partner (who is no longer at my school). This is my gift to her when we go out for dinner this week. She will know that it was made with LOVE. Enjoy! ((HUGS))

Hey love bugs! Happy Sunday! Man these days are going by so fast. I can't believe school is almost out. 28 days (but whose counting?) hehe. As many of you know classroom management is one of my strong points. I'm a teacher who believes in showing students empathy and compassion. I don't care about a child's economic status. I just care about how they feel. It's important for me to let my students know that I love them and care about them. We know that when it becomes the end of the school year teachers become VERY tired, weary, and cranky. The same goes for our kiddos. So it's important to keep that routine and positivity going until the end. It's so worth it. So many people ask me if I give everyone a note and YES, I do! Nobody goes left out when I give a positive praise. Yes, I do give students individual encouragement as well. Let's face it some do deserve that extra praise too. However, when it's a note that is for everyone then everyone gets that same note. Usually, it's a note letting them know how FAB they are, or how glad I am that they are in my class. :)

These are going out on desks tomorrow morning. I LOVE my weekends, but I do miss them over the weekend and wonder what they're up to. :)

Click on this photo if you're interested in my I just want you to know slips. :)

Dry Erase markers are used a lot in my room. This is so easy and quick to do. The best part is that it cleans off so easy. :) Each kiddo received this message on their desks last week. Each one of them are my favorites. :) 

I was happy for Friday and I know they were too. :)

My new mug from The Night Owl is perfect for me and all that I LOVE and believe in. Teaching truly does start from the heart. I just LOVE my new mug and can't wait to use it. If you haven't checked out The Night Owl's webiste you are mising out. So much cute and fun teacher goodies. I just LOVE it when companies think about us. Yay!! Go check out the site, you won't regret it.

Have a blessed and FAB week love bugs.

A Teachers Pay Teachers Milestone

Hey love bugs! I hope you all had a FAB week. I wanted to take the time to thank Teachers Pay Teachers and YOU! I have reached an amazing milestone that I'm very proud of. Yep, Miss May aka One Fab Teacher has reached over 500 followers on Teachers Pay Teachers. I can remember when I first began this creating journey like it was yesterday. I would ask Aimee over at Primarily Speaking for suggestions and help. She never acted bothered by me, if she was she hid it VERY well. Thanks Aimee! This creating business has been a very hard road, but with faith, prayer, and dedication things have truly blossomed. I would google hpw tp create prooducts like crazy. I can remmeber getting my first payout and it was like $4. I was excited! Let's just say those payouts aren't $4 anymore. I'm grateful and so blessed. I appreciate and feel so humbled that people spend their hard earned money on my creations. It's such an amazing feeling. I'm not going to lie, I love hearing that TPT alert when someone has purchased a product or has left feedback. I always reply to all my feedback that I receive. I'm just so grateful words can't express. With that said, I just wanted to say, "Thank you TpT for creating this awesome community for educators to create, share, and explore ideas and activites. Thank you for creating this place where educators become excited when they find a product they've been looking for. Thank you for creating this place where educators LOVE searching for items to help them with lessons. Thank you for creating this place for educators to earn extra income to pay for car repairs, bills, save, etc. I just want to thank you! Lastly, I want to thank each and everyone of my followers on Teachers Pay Teachers. At this moment I have 526 fab love bugs supporting me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I'm having a sale this weekend. Everything in my store is 20% off. My One Fab Quote packet has been a super hit. I just added more quotes. So if you have already purchased this all you have to do is re-downoad. I've added quotes for the cafeteria staff, custodians, secretaries, paras, and counselors. I will continue to add to this packet as time goes by. I hope you all have a FAB weekend. Love you bunches!! -tiffany

Hey friend, let's be partners!

Hey fab friends! Hope everyone has had a FAB Monday! Mine was pretty good. Even though I had a four day weekend. I choose to take some days off while Mama Bear was in town. Oh how I miss her already!

So lately I've been in the creating mood. You know sometimes I have NO clue what I'm going to create and then my creative bulb brightens and BAM! LOL So I wouldn't call myself a guru of classroom manangement, but I will say that I'm pretty known for it. Something I've been doing for when I pick partners for activities is partner cards. It's a quick and easy technique. All you do is pass out as many cards you need just make sure you have matches. Once you pass out the cards tell your kiddos to go and find their match. The person they find with the same card becomes their partner. Simple, easy peasy, lemon squeezy. I plan on creating many more! Enjoy these two for now. Click on the pictures.

Happy Easter

Hey love bugs! I hope you all had a Happy Easter and enjoyed it with loved ones. I was a bit under the weather today, but I spent LOTS of time with my favorite little gang, (my niece and nephews) yesterday. We went to the park and of course, we had to stop at the gas station and get some snacks. :) I can't even express how much I love them.

I'm a firm believer in Jesus and all that he has done. This morning I added to my journal some illustrated faith or faith doodling. It makes me feel better. Especially if I'm feeling down. 

When I awoke this morning, my brother had sent me a text with pictures of them this morning ready for church and time with their grandparents. Of course I had to add my touch to it before I posted it on Instagram with the Happy Easter stamp. Call me biased, but they are some of the CUTEST kids ever!

While I was in bed most of the day, I decided to create a new reading log for my class. I've been using several different ones, but they just weren't cutting it for me. So what does one do? Create it herself. So I added a new freebie to my store and it will ALWAYS be a freebie. However, I do ask that you leave a sista some feedback. It means a lot as a seller when you leave feedback. I respond to every piece of feedback I get. I just REALLY appreciate it. Just click on picture and it will lead you to my free reading log. It comes in color as well as black and white.

While I'm on a roll I have some adorable calendar cards for the month of April. Super Duper Cute!!

Lastly, my One Fab Quote packet. These quotes have been a HUGE and I mean HUGE hit on INSTAGRAM. I'm constantly receiving positive feedback about them, I'm definitely one that wants others to feel FAB and I'm a HUGE fan of positivity and encouragement. Once I saw how much feedback I was getting about these quotes (created from my own personal thoughts) I decided to put them in my store. I've given them individually and I've put one inside each persons mailbox as well. Giving kindness is free! I hope you all have a FABULOUS week! ((HUGS))

A Koo Koo Kangaroo Party

Words can't express the JOY that I have in my heart tonight. My school had the pleasure of having Bryan and Neil from Koo Koo Kangaroo perform live in our cafeteria!!!!!!!!! Yes, that's right! The awesome group from Gonoodle. My Firsties and I love these guys so much! When we need a break we an always count on these AWESOME guys to get us back in our groove. Not only did they perform at our school, but it was also Bryan's birthday today. So we sung "Happy Birthday" to him and gave him LOTS of love as well as birthday cards. I can't express how COOL, AWESOME, FUN, HUMBLE, and OUTGOING these guys are. It just makes me LOVE them even more. I can't even express the Joy that I have in my heart.I'm still smiling as I type this. Bryan and Neil of Koo Koo Kangaroo, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! Enjoy the pictures. This isn't even half, but you will get my drift on how happy we all were!

The guys and I! Love you guys!

These cuties were so proud of their sign!

We made Bryan birthday cards as a grade level and we decided to spell Koo out of some of them. One of my teammates thought to do this.

This cuties mom made his cool Koo Koo shirt.

Morgan(who teaches kinder) and I joined Neil and Bryan for some Pop See Ko!

As a class we wrote letters to them both, thanking them for coming to our school. This is a picture that one of my Firsties created to match his letter.

Getting these kiddos stretched out and ready. #awesome
