I really can't believe that the summer is slipping away. It always seems to do that though. Back to School sales have started and I've received notices of the registration day for my own children to check in and find out who their teachers are. With all the hub-bub starting, I thought it was time to start my own back to school series. Over the next two weeks, I'll cover topics including classroom themes, supplies, who to smooze at school, planning for the year, planning for back to school nights, planning for the first day and week of school and how to communicate with parents. Each post will include a FREEBIE and a linky; so be sure to stop by, read, link and hop your way through the preparations of back to school. You can start with the first post today right here for an introduction and short discussion on classroom themes. It includes your choice of themed label cards as the freebie. Then check back every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for a couple of weeks to get all the info and goodies.
