Days 4 & 5 Teacher Week + Giveaway Winners!!

Yay, it's Friday!!! I know for those of you who have already started back to school, you're especially excited that it's Friday :)

I'm linking up for days 4 & 5 of Teacher Week..this has been a lot of fun!

I'm combining days 4 and 5, since I didn't have time to do a post yesterday..

My number 1 Classroom Management Tip is the clipchart system:
Clipchart available here
Student number labels available here
I will be using calendars this year from Alyssa over at Just a Primary Girl. Students will have a copy of the calendar for the month in their communication folder. At the end of the day, students will color in their color for the day on the correct day, and the parents will initial it each night. This will allow me to have an open line of communication with parents regarding their child's behavior. These calendars are also fully editable, so I can fill them in to fit my needs - awesome!!

Day 5 is Teacher Tips, and my biggest teacher tip would be to use VistaPrint! I have gotten so many great things to use from this website. You can actually create your own designs for things such as business cards, stamps, and postcards, and upload them on the website. Groupon runs deals for VistaPrint where you get $70 worth of products for $17. I bought that deal recently, and was able to order several things for my classroom. Unfortunately, the $70 won't count towards taxes or shipping, but I was pretty happy that I got $70 worth of product for less than $20 :)
Here are some things I've ordered lately..
Also, this is totally random, but how cute are these watches?! I ordered one from Groupon yesterday in gray, and it was only $8.99!

See them here to the winners of my blog launch giveaway!!!

I will be contacting the winners by email shortly - as soon as I grab some lunch!! :)
Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway. I think it was a HUGE success!!
