4. Periscope

Have you been joining in the fun on Periscope? Periscope is a live screening social media platform. I am experiencing intermittent Internet performance, but am doing my best to tune in when I can. I can't always do the comments and hearts, because it freezes my screen, but I am doing my best. 

Please pray with me, that Australian government leaders take Internet speed improvement seriously. Please and thank you! #firstworldproblems I know! 

One of my favourites has been Sheila Jane from Shelia Jane Teaching. I love her open hearted, embracing philosophy and she is just so fun to watch/listen. I am filled with so much pride and happiness for our profession when I hear teachers like Sheila.

5. Stress Less

Another tip from my reading on stress - agree with the criticism. I love this one, and its so easy to do. Next time someone criticises you, just agree with them. Watch the issue that it 'could have been', dissolve into nothing. Don't be a push-over or a door-mat but agree, accept, apologise if you need to and move on. Now, use all that saved time to do something productive!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Head over to Doodle Bugs for more Friday-randomness.

Back to School Bus Craftivity

I have linked up my Back to School Bus Craftivity with the '2 for Tuesday' linky over at Chalk One Up for the Teacher!

This packet is 50% for today and you can find it at TpT HERE

Your students can have fun making a cute little bus with flap windows. Under each portrait illustrated window they can write about themselves, their friends and their teacher. 

In my TpT store, you will also find another BTS packet on sale, my 'School Number Line Puzzles'. This resource contains 11 projects for students to work on to develop number sequence and counting. The numbers range from 1 to 30 and each puzzle features 6 numbers. A cute school themed picture is created once students have done all the hard work! My students love these and I am sure yours will too. 

Be sure to head over to Cyndie's blog to find more 'Two for Tuesday' specials!
Have a wonderful day, friends.

If I were a Crayon

One of my favourite back to school items is a box of new crayons. I am also loving the picture book The Day the Crayons Quit. Both inspired a new paper craft to add to my collection

Your students will love making a cute little writing book and describing themselves as a crayon!

You can use just one or multiple writing pages to accommodate your students' needs.

I have added this craftivity to my bundle and it is also available as an individual listing

Thanks so much for visiting my blog! Have a wonderful day.

Five for Friday - July 24th

Five for Friday time my friends. Despite this being one of my most favourite things to do in the week, I am reminded that yet another week has gone by and there is no slowing down. 

I preface this next sentence with a warning that it may cause distress for some readers. 

There are only 153 days until Christmas. I am organised like that. Except that I am not. I just found out by visiting this horror site  website-Christmas-countdown-tracker-thingy. Designed to make eyeballs explode. 


1. This sweetie. 

Love him so much and more and more each day. I am so proud to be his mother and am enjoying being his best friend for now and soaking up as many hugs and kisses that I can.

2. Scrappy Decor

Deanna and I have put together 2 bundles of 'scrappy inspired classroom decor. I have a few extra surprises to add to these bundles shortly. You can find them in Mrs Jump's store HERE

3. Cold

Like, ten degrees cold driving to work. brrrrrr

4. Clipart Sale

I am joining in with some teacher-clipartists from TpT for a fun little sale. Head over to my graphics blog to read some more!

5. A stress-less reminder

Regular blog followers will know that I am reading a little book of tips to keep from getting too stressed-out! 

One I liked this week was "Get comfortable not knowing". This is something I have to constantly work at. Most of the time we blow everything out of proportion and think of terrible things that 'will' happen. But.....they mostly never do - so quit worrying and be happy 'not-knowing'! 

Thanks so much for stopping by my friends! head over to Kacey's blog for more random fun!

Two for Tuesday - July 22nd

I am linking up with Cyndie from Chalk One Up for the Teacher for Two for Tuesday!

I have two packets in my TpT store today reduced by 50% for today only. 

My Back to School Write and Wipe cards are a great pre-writing activity. My students love fun cards like this, especially as a skills based fast finishing activity. 

My Shape Pinning Pages are another fun way to help your students develop good fine motor co-ordination. Each of these projects will reinforce a two dimensional shape!
