BTS 2013

Well it's here BTS 2013 is in full swing and the teacher and mother side of me are going crazy!  My daughter is starting Pre-K this year!  I swear it was just yesterday that my husband and I brought her home from the hospital.  I was so surprised to get the call a few days ago that a spot became open in the dual language program in our district and my daughter was first on the list.  So that means that my daughter will somewhat be bilingual when she graduates from high school!  Is that cool or what?  Does your district offer dual language? I will be teaching 2nd grade dual language this year and I'm eager to get started.  Anyway with that being said the mother in me went crazy and bought my girly tons of school clothes.  Here's a look at some of her goodies.

On another note I told you the teacher side of me is acting just as crazy.  Here are some of the steals I scored during BTS2013.

I got tons of baskets, markers, post-its, glue etc alot of which aren't pictured.  To top that I finally broke down and got the rolling cart you see in most teachers rooms only because it was 70% off at Michaels last week! Finally I think every teacher needs these two little bottles from BBW somewhere in their room for those days that nothing seems to be going right or when you need a energy boost.

On another note I finally finished my BTS2013 math centers.
 I plan to use them to assess my students math abilities and to help
 me group them for guided math rotations the first few weeks of school. The unit features place value, problem solving, measurement, addition/subtraction facts up to 20 and more!

 In honor of BTS2013 this unit is on sale until midnight est!  

I'll even give out a free copy to the first 2 people to leave a comment on my blog!
