Let's Hear it for... SNOW Days, Clean Sweep, and Giveaways!

I don't know about you... but I love a good SNOW day!  This was the best snow we've had in a long time and it was so nice that my husband also had off work.  Just look what he built for our daughter--an incredible snow fort!!  
 And the best news in... I already know that we have off school tomorrow too! :o)

As you know, I'm participating in the Clutter Free Classroom project this year.  It's fun to "tweak" the things you're already doing in your classroom and get more organized!!  I'm catching up on a few project posts and here is the week 3 challenge:  make a clean sweep!  

When I think of an area in my classroom where I need to make a clean sweep--I immediately think of my "white shelf". This is where I am the worst offender at stacking papers and other odds and ends.
Here's how I made a clean sweep...

SO EXCITED at the difference from these few little changes.  I'm planning on adding labels or vinyl lettering (cut from my Cameo) to the 3 large drawers, but I'm still undecided at what I want it to say (essentially, it's the stuff that's "on tap" for lessons that day/week.  Check out the project--you can jump in at any time!! 

There are two giveaways I also want to mention.  The first one is from my real life buddy, Kelly Haynes.  She is celebrating 300 followers and you can win this adorable monster finger puppet set and CVC monster word packet from her store!    Click on the picture to enter!!

Plus, don't forget to enter my LOOK for BOOKS 100 Facebook Fan Giveaway! You can win a $20 Amazon gift card plus "your choice" from my store!!  Just 2 days left to enter...


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm a follower of yours now! We have plenty of snow here in the Shenandoah Valley. I'm a piler, too! Really need to join in that challenge.

  2. Thanks Mrs. Stamp for the encouraging words on my blog!! Your white shelf looked pretty organized to me before the changes!!! I do love the smaller drawer containers. I've noticed a lot of teaching blogs writing about them lately. They do make paper piles look so much neater!!!! Way to go!


  3. That is an amazing snow fort! We didn't get as much snow in Richmond, but it was enough for a delay this morning. Glad to have another VA blogger!
