Craft Room and May Book Reports

Wow!  I feel like I haven't posted in forever.  If you are a teacher, I'm sure you understand.  This time of year activities seem to take on a life of their own.  Between testing, church, Relay for Life, and teaching the last few weeks have been crazy!

Oh, I almost forgot, I also worked on creating my craft room.  If you don't have one, I have to tell you, it is one of the best things I've ever done.  We spent last weekend cleaning out the room, painting, buying the things I've been wanting for it, and putting together my desk.  Next on the list is a rug and a couch for my summer naps for my hubby.  Here are a few pictures of the room.  It's definitely not finished, but it is in a good place.  If you have any questions, ask away.  


Okay, in other news, I know no one has requested them yet, but I have the May Book Reports ready.  I have six of them this time and since my kids have grown (I'm sure yours have, too), I created two different versions this time.  The first version is the same as what I've been doing.  The second version has the students writing four sentences to tell about the story.  If you want it, click on any of the pictures below and grab it.  



Last of all, I now have a Facebook Fan page :)  I am sure it's going to take me a little while to figure out what I'm doing, but on days I don't blog, I'm planning to use my Facebook Fan page to ask questions, comment, etc.  I am also going to use it for quick 1 hour sales and giveaways.  Below is a link to it.  Hopefully, in the next few days I will have a button on the right side of my blog that you can click to follow.


Coming Soon - A blog makeover!  Friends, I can't wait for you to see it!
Have a great Monday!

  1. Oh my gosh - I am SO jealous of that amazing craft room! Sadly, my house is the size of a postage stamp & I can barely fit! Maybe one day! Thanks so much for the May Book Reports - they look adorable!

    1. LOL... It seems to be working :) Of course, I'll feel more like it's working if I start knocking out some of my bigger packets :)

  3. Love your craft room! Thank you for the book reports. (Would you have wanted someone demanding to know if you were doing them or when they were going to be finished? Maybe our silence was a good thing!)

    2. LOL... I'm glad that I got them done earlier this time :) Usually my teammates or a few of my other friends start asking for them :) I have no idea how many people use them, but ever since I did the March ones I get more requests :) LOVE the Mason jars on the shelves :) I've wanted to put them on the shelf for awhile :)

  7. My "craft room" is a spare bedroom (for when I have guests), a craft space, and computer room. It also serves as a hallway since my house is a shotgun and it's the "walk through" bedroom. It's quite jam-packed, and nowhere as organized as yours, though I'm working on it! :-) Love your craft space!
