Wow! I can’t believe another school year is ending! I have really had a great group of kids this year- yes, there are always challenges but I do feel blessed to have had these kids in my life the past 9 months. With that said- I am ready for SUMMER! I’m sure you are too and to celebrate I am having a giveaway to help make your summer STRESS FREE! I also have a few quick and easy tips to share on how I try to make the most out of the end of the year to make the beginning of the year a little easier! Then it’s a little easier to enjoy my SUMMER!
1. Orders: Do you get classroom money each year? We get $400 for classroom supplies. Throughout the school year, I keep a list as I start to run out of items or things that I realize I need. I do my order BEFORE leaving for the summer. Then, I have my items in July so that I can get started right away.
2. TPT Purchase Order: Do you use TPT as a major classroom resource? Are you tired of spending your own hard earned money? Well, this goes along with #1. I try to spend the LEAST amount of money on supplies as I can so that I can use the rest on TPT. Here is how I do it. If I have $100 left after ordering, I buy a TPT Gift Card using a Purchase Order with the rest of my money. It’s easy to do and then I can use the card throughout the year as needed.
3. Beginning of the Year File: When I am packing up the classroom, I start a Beginning of the Year File. This file contains everything I may need at the beginning the year including my class information (which we get before the year is out). The first time I go into my room to start the new year- I go to this file first.
Then, you can walk out of the building, feeling ready for summer! I have a special gift pack for you to help keep your summer stress free! I will be sending it out snail-mail because getting a package is always super exciting! So, here it is!
1. Amazon- $25 Gift Card to get some good books to read for the summer!
2. Starbucks- $15
3. TPT- $25 Gift Card
4. Beach Wear- hat, towels, cup, beach wrap, ear buds
5. Younique 3D Fiber Mascara
