Wordless Wednesday: Vintage Windows

Okay y'all, I'm not going to lie. This summer, school stuff has NOT been my main focus. I am in the process of buying a house (I'm SO excited and I just can't hide it!) and I have been having so much fun looking for furniture and DIY projects for my new crib. Now that I will have a REAL home, I am working on ditching the college furniture I had for some fun, new (to me) adult furniture. 

Yesterday I found two of these fabulous frames for $15/pair on a local "buying/selling" site.

So...What should I do with them? 
I have been Pinterest crazy since I picked them up trying to find the perfect project for them. Let me know your thoughts and I'll make sure to show you the final product when they get finished!

Happy Wednesday! 
After today... only TWO more before my summer is over. =(

Wordless Wednesday: Teamwork



This week I've been brainstorming some fun ways to encourage SYNERGY and TEAMWORK in my classroom. How do you encourage this in your classroom? I'd love to hear!

It's July!



//listening//
Does anyone else need background noise? I do! I'm "watching" the Today show while I work.

//loving//
Is anyone else LOVING the World Cup? I've got my USA tank on and I'm pumped about heading to a local brewery with 1000 of my closest friends to root for the USA today! Will you be watching?

//thinking//
Summer… Where have you gone? I go back to school at the beginning of August. I better enjoy my last month of freedom!

//wanting//
I would love to get into my classroom. I love getting it prepared early so when the back to school rush starts I don't have to worry about it. Babysitting is taking over my summer! It's good for my bank account but BAD for my classroom! hah!

//needing//
I need to work on my lesson plans because...
4th grade here I come!

I still see myself as a relatively *new* teacher,but its been nice to have been in the same grade for three years.I am EXCITED and a little nervous to move to a new grade.
So much new stuff to learn! But also... so much new stuff I can create! 
Let me know your favorite 4th grade blogs!

//4th plans//
I love the 4th! Whether it's hanging out with family or going to the lake, it always seems like there is something fun going on! This year I will be hanging close to home, but my fam will hit up a massive rummage sale and catch the fireworks at night. 

Happy July and Happy 4th of July!
Also.. GO USA! Turn on those TVs and watch this afternoon!
