Getting Ready for Back-to-School

It is hard to believe that it is already August and school is just around the corner! This year, all of the elementary schools in my district are NOT having kids bring supplies. Each child is being asked to bring $20 and teachers are purchasing ALL of their supplies. Needless to say, I have been shopping deals and sales all summer and this is what my living room currently looks like:

Some teachers were not happy with this arrangement, but I am thrilled because this way I can prep everything ahead of time and ALL of my kids will have EVERYTHING they need on the first day of school. It also saves us a TON of precious class time organizing supplies those first few days!

Besides buying student supplies, it is also time for me to pick up (more than) a few things from Teachers Pay Teachers because it is Back-to-School sale time!!!

My TpT store is part of the sale, so be sure to check it out! Then come back here and tell us what you bought. I will be choosing one comment on Wednesday evening and that person will get a little Jamberry gift pack from me, so you can have pretty nails for the first day of school!

Finally Updated My TpT Store!

I need summer vacation more than once a year! During my time off the last week or so, I have finally made time to update my Teachers Pay Teachers store. What do you think?

In addition to making it LOOK nicer, I have also been busy working on adding new items! I have also updated a few of my older items, so make sure to go and take a peek!

Here are some FREEBIES I have added:

I use this to organize & record the resources I have that I will use to teach different topics/units. Even though I have all of these resources organized on my computer, I find it helpful to have a hard copy in my plan book!

This next one used to be a paid product, but I have changed it into a FREEBIE!

These cute desk tags make a cheerful addition to any classroom. And if you like these and want more options, or are looking for some without the cursive, check out my NEW desk tags!

I can't wait to get these on the desks in my room!!!

Please head over to my store and let me know what you think about the changes and/or new & updated products. One lucky commenter will get the product of their choice from my store for FREE!!! Drawing to be held on Monday, August 3rd. Be sure to check back and see if you won!

Time to Say Thanks

Seeing that is almost Thanksgiving, I wanted to take a minute to thank all of my fellow teachers for everything that they do for their students. Our job is often thankless, and we rarely get to see the long-term results of our efforts. However, we do it because we love our kids and we know we are making a difference in their lives!

So in honor of all you do, I am offering a Thanksgiving Give-Away!

You can enter your name to win in several ways:
1. Leave a comment here on my blog
2. Follow me on Bloglovin'
3. Head over and "Like" my Facebook page, The Inspired Soul with Shannon Murdock
4. Share the Give-Away post on my Facebook page

For every 25 comments here on my blog, "Likes" on my Facebook page, and shares of the Give-Away post I will draw a name to win $10 from my TpT store. The more you share, the more winners there will be! Drawing will take place on Sunday evening, November 30, around 8pm (Pacific Standard Time).

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!
