WELCOME! WELCOME! WELCOME!
I have a cyber-TON of images to share with you as you consider getting your new school year 'organized.' I've gone through some of my old articles and also my old memory cards in search of inspiration to help get your new year off to an amazing start! I am an author-illustrator making school visits around the country sharing my traditional picture books. While on site I take hundreds of photos to share with you here! Sit back. Lots to consider. Plenty of inspiration!
First let me show my three 'babies.' They are the catalyst for my travels.
I'm thrilled to have won the national INDIE Award of Excellence for my newest book. "Red, White and Blue" was chosen as the independent picture book of the year upon its debut. Now that you have a glimpse into my 'back-story' let the organization ideas begin!
The very first thing on your teacher agenda is to find out who is about to come into your classroom. Making a connection -- connecting names to faces is the first step! As a visitor in and out of buildings, I'm always THRILLED when children have a name-tag and I can greet them on a first name basis. Behold. Name tags.
Get your buckets organized!
Look at all of these various 'systems' to keep your bucket filling accessible.
One final image.
I saw this sign in Tennessee this spring.
I can not sell you one.
I only get credit for taking the photo.
Isn't it an awesome idea!
Talk about getting organized!
Most of my traffic arrives here via Pinterest.
Would you be a helper-bee and pin this image to your appropriate pinboard?
Thanks so much for your cyber-ripple.
*Here are some more recent RoundUPs with a back-to-school focus.
This first one has over 200 BTS bulletin board ideas.
Hopefully something will give you some inspiration!
Just click the picture to go back in time.
We are just beginning to get this next school year's schedule organized.
NOW is the time to plant the seeds to have me come to YOUR school.
It all begins with your brainstorm.
I have an entire slideshow of my travels -- to get your wheels turning.
YES!!! ALL of my books may be ordered from me directly.
They are also over at Teachers Pay Teachers.
*I also have digital files of 'just' the song, in Mp3 format with pdfs of the support material at TpT.
