I'm Back!!! New Ideas and a GIVEAWAY

Hello Bloggy Friends!!! I am BACK! I must apologize for being gone for so long! I had two eye surgeries at the end of May and beginning of June. And its been alot of recovering and it's taken my eyes quite some time to readjust and focus on the computer again! I also apologize for any spelling mistakes! My eyes still get a little fuzzy if I sit here too long! Good news is I'm back with some great new ideas and stories oh, and finally, great vision!!!

Well, Happy end of summer and Back to school time for some of you! I am counting down the days until it's back to school and I CANNOT wait. I have already started on some new ideas for my classroom. I've decided that I am going to do a jungle theme and I cannot wait to decorate my room! I of course went out and bought some jungle things but I decided that I wanted to have a jungle tree in my room, and this is what i came up with.

it was fun to make, but such a pain to cut out after I laminated it! lol

I also decided to make a noise-o-meter. I've seen these all over the place that you can buy, but I think they are pretty expensive. I am going to use a clothespin to let the class know how they should be working.

NOW time for my GIVEAWAY!!! I feel awful that I have been MIA for awhile, I feel as if my bloggy friends deserve a little something! I am going to be giving away a $15.00 giftcard to TARGET. I have been to TARGET entirely too much this summer, but they have so many fun things for school and it's pretty cheap too! So here are the rules for the GIVEAWAY.

1. Make sure you follow my blog!
2. Leave me a comment.
3. Follow me at my TpT Store

I will pick the winner this SUNDAY, AUGUST 5, 2012 @ 8 pm EST.

Thanks again guys! Talk to you all soon!!!

A jungle theme sounds fun! I am getting married this coming spring and my last name is changing to Helm...So I have been thinking about doing a theme flip in my classroom to have something to do with boats, ships, water, pirates? Dunno! Could be fun though! I follow your blog and now your TPT store!

Double eye surgery sounds like a pretty fair reason for taking a brief hiatus. Yikes!! Happy to hear you're on the mend though :)
