Shopping & My Handiwork

Mom and I decided to go on a shopping trip yesterday. That bucket list idea really had me motivated. 🙂 We got a lot of groceries, and I got some great stuff for my bedroom, my classroom, and just to be crafty. Here’s some of the stuff we scored:

1. The cutest reading center monkey I ever did see! SO good for my Wild About Kinder theme. His name is Mason Monkey. Presh.

Mason Monkey2. Three books! One is a nice photo-filled nonfiction called Space. There’s a mix and match Safari animals book that would be fun for kinders to look at. The last one is my favorite. It’s a height chart covered with wild animals! Totally going to track their height over the school year to show how much they grew. Too cool.

BOOKS GALORE!3. My very own beginners herb garden. I picked the one with basil, cilantro, and parsley because those are the most useful herbs. We’ll find out if I actually have a green-thumb.

Image5. What color should I make my accent wall? Right now it’s an ocean blue color. Thoughts?

Image6. Last but not least, I bought a shelving unit!! It’s one of those awesome ClosetMaid ones that’s 12 cubes. I assembled it last night and this afternoon. It’s wonderful and I love it. Yes, that is an Ireland flag behind it — from Ireland! 🙂 I also got some under-the-bed storage bins and 4 clear shoebox bins. I love storing things neatly.


That’s all for an update on my summer so far! What do you think? I love to read your comments.

Have a fantastic Mother’s Day!

Summer Bucket List!

MY BLOG HAS MOVED LOCATIONS! You can come follow me at Miss A’s Kindergarten if you would like to see brand new posts! I appreciate you stopping by, and I hope that I will see you on my blog. Thank you!

You can click the picture below to take you to the new page.

I am a university alum! I graduated on Cinco de Mayo with my Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education and Spanish. It’s a liberating feeling, really. Now, I’m back at my parent’s house living here for a year or so trying to save SaVe SAVE all my money to buy a home. Yes. BUY a home. So while I’m here, I have a lot of spare time before I start my first year of teaching in the Fall. So here’s my bucket list because I saw Miss Kindergarten’s linky party and thought it would be fun to make some goals for myself. 🙂

1. Finish organizing and redecorating my bedroom! I have been cleaning and organizing this whole week, and I’m working towards a nice relaxing theme for my room. Maybe turquoise, black, and white like this room. Who knows! I’ve already moved a ton of stuff out.


2. Make this super cute menu board with my mom. SO awesome!

3. Craft some awesome numbers and letters bean bags out of felt that my cooperating teacher (during student teaching) made. They were too fun for the fourths, and I’m sure that my kinders in the Fall will L.O.V.E. them!

4. Decorate my brand new CLASSROOM! I can’t wait to set everything up and find out what I get to use in it. My theme idea is Jungle/Rainforest/Safari. Of course. I keep looking up stuff online to print just to add a little something extra to the room. If you have any suggestions/advice for my first year, don’t hesitate to comment below!

How cute!

6. Spend July with WR. He should be coming to the States this summer and I can’t wait to show him around my city! It’s going to be a blast.

Summer 2012 is going to be great!

I hope that you enjoyed reading my blog. Come back soon for more updates on my adventure in teaching! Leave a comment if you have any other fun things I should add to my list!
