THANK YOU!!! ✏️ Stickers are sold out!! (I archived the original post.) I am so excited to restock and add more designs, so keep checking back... I’m thinking Sticker Saturdays should be a thing?! Again thank you so much for the support! 🥰
Well if this isn’t the hack of all hacks 🤣 Remember this one, friends! No one will take your black Sharpies again! (pc @myclassbloom)
How cute are these behavior buddies?! 🐱🐷 Kiddos can earn a little stuffed animal to hang out on their desks for the day! My own girls would be all over this... we have quite a collection of Beanie Boos 😆 (pc @mandilynnmoore 🐶 idea @teachingwithcrayonsandcurls)
Bright dismissal tags for the win! 🌈 Make a set for YOU on a ring— it’s so easy to grab and quickly see who goes where! Print each method of transportation on a different color to match the student tags. This set is EDITABLE for anyone looking for specific tags!! ⭐️ Check it out here http://bit.ly/CupcakeDT
And that’s why I’ve always waited until the last second to label... like a week after school starts 🤣 (or maybe it’s just that I’m a procrastinator 🤷🏼♀️).
I’m loving this bright writing display in @niewood215’s classroom! ✏️ She separated my Writing Topic Cards by category and hung them up where students can easily choose and grab a set. 👏🏼
I’m so excited to start seeing these Fast Finisher Activities in your classrooms!!! @thefirstgradefrontier set her choice board up with the “anytime” tasks ⭐️. You can introduce your students to the idea and gradually add in themed activities as they learn the ropes! 😍
How do you store all your calendar pieces? I put them in these little bins, and I use a pushpin to stick the bin right into the bulletin board!
These editable notebook & folder labels make is so EASY for your kiddos to stay organized!! 📓 There are over 75 labels to choose from, and you only have to type your class list ONCE— making it super easy for you, too! 👏🏼 Link in profile or bit.ly/CupcakeLabels
So so tired of it 🤪 (pc @thecreativeclassroom)
What is your classroom pencil policy? Here’s mine! Every kiddo gets a new pencil at the beginning of the day (Pencil Patrol is a classroom job.) ✏️ When the pencil breaks or becomes too dull, students can exchange it for a sharp one. At the end of the day all pencils are collected again (by the Pencil Patrol) and sharpened (by me or an aide). It’s not perfect— pencils still go missing— but it helps a lot!! ✏️ These labels are free at the link in my profile or http://bit.ly/1E8tuDk
My fast finishers set comes with printables for some of the activities (like making words and book reviews), so I wanted to show you an easy, space-saving way to set them out! ⭐️ I used a hanging file bin from @thecontainerstore and bright hanging file folders. Then I just printed the names of the activities that come with printables and labeled the folders! 🌈 Kiddos can grab the sheet they need right from the bin! Teachers can change the papers out monthly as the activities change.👌🏼 Other ideas: paper trays, rolling drawers, or pocket chart folder storage! ✏️ Fast Finisher Activities can be found via the link in my profile or bit.ly/CupcakeFast
A round of applause for those of you scratching things off your to-do list! 👏🏼

Magic Bead Bracelets 🌈 I love to do this activity on the first day of school! The beads start out plain white and in the magic of the ☀️ they color change, letting my kiddos know that they will have a great year! I wrote a blog post about it! Link in profile or http://bit.ly/CupcakeBracelet
Haven’t quite reached the Ross stage here in NJ with school starting after Labor Day 🤪
Bright dismissal tags on backpacks will help you determine where kiddos go at the end of the day! 🌈 Make each method of transportation a different color so you can figure it out at a glance! (If you don’t want to include a name on the tags, just add initials.) I already updated this set to include a few requests AND added an EDITABLE portion for anyone looking for specific tags!! ⭐️ Check it out here http://bit.ly/CupcakeDT
Dismissal can be a hectic time of day, especially at the beginning of the year. To help keep organized I created these color-coded dismissal tags that can be attached to backpacks or even worn on wrists. The bright @astrobrights Happy Assortment paper from @officedepot makes it easy to spot a bus rider or walker at a glance! Keep a master list on a ring to double check who goes where. Dismissal has never been so easy... or colorful! #colorizeyourclassroom #bts2019 #astrobrightsteachers #sponsored ⭐️ http://bit.ly/CupcakeDT
Target, I wish I knew how to quit you. 🎯
Did you know that the wireless doorbell fits inside a hand sanitizer holder?! 👏🏼 This one is from Bath & Body Works and while it doesn’t cover the whole thing, the doorbell is snug and not going anywhere. The sanitizer holders from the dollar spot also work and wrap around the entire bell. This way you can keep it on your lanyard and have a better chance of not misplacing it! 😉 (Shoutout to whoever was the first to realize this because I know I’ve seen it somewhere! 😘) Wireless doorbells are a great way to grab your kiddos’ attention! When you hear the doorbell it’s time to quiet down, clean up, etc. If you go to my Amazon highlights you’ll find a link— they come in so many fun colors!
This crayon box craftivity is a great one for the first day or week of school! 🖍The pieces are simple to cut and put together ✂️ and the writing insert gives kiddos a chance to introduce themselves (other options are included, too). ✏️ They make a very cute line display in your classroom! http://bit.ly/CupcakeCrayonCraft
Relaxing > prepping 😉 (pc @thecollaborativeclass)
