I have an update! After several emails and comments about having trouble printing the clock numbers, I made a few changes with the word art that I used. I also had to change the font because I don’t have that font on the computer I am working on… BUMMER! If you prefer the clock numbers I previously posted HERE, try printing them on “grayscale”- that worked for me! Just to warn you, I haven’t tried printing these clock numbers yet, so I’m not positive the problem is fixed! Also, the reason I left them black/white is to conserve ink… let’s face it, it’s just stinkin’ expensive! So, print them on colored paper of your choice and you are good to go!
- I buy most of my decorations from Mardel because it is pretty much the only teacher store within 40 miles of my house!
- Because I make most of my things, I do use a lot of printer ink! BUT… I try to print at school whenever possible. The only bad thing is that I don’t have a printer in my room (apparently the district is trying to weed out classroom printers 🙁 I told my campus secretary that I was going to have a heart attack when I first heard the news!) Good news is that my classroom is literally next door to the teacher workroom so I can run and get papers very quickly!
- I work very fast, and I’m not saying this to brag at all!!! I just get comments like this a lot “Wow, that was fast! How did you do it so fast? How did you get it all done? I wish I could work as fast as you!” Let me just tell you, it’s not always a positive thing! I am one of those people that when I get an idea, I have to attack it right away. I can’t put things off because it drives me crazy. I will literally stay up all night with my “to-do” list running through my head. So, be thankful if you don’t have this brain problem like me!
- I do not speak Spanish haha! I have a fabulous teaching partner that is a fluent Spanish speaker, and I adore her! Here’s how our relationship works- I offer to make anything as long as she will translate it for me. Because our classroom labels, newsletters, notes home, word walls, etc have to be in both languages, I have to ask for help a lot (which is completely out of my comfort zone!) She is very gracious and translates with a smile 🙂
- I really like to use exclamation marks!!!! AND dot dot dots….
- I literally live 1 minute from my school. As soon as we moved into a new house I applied for a transfer, and I love it! I don’t even have time to listen to a full song on my way to work!
