I shared a few of my favorite things to use in the classroom, including the The Essential 55 book by Ron Clark. FYI- This is the book that inspired me to start our R.A.K.s Club.
We kicked off a GREAT Summer Challenge. During this challenge, we used a few quick minutes during our summer to declutter our classroom, plan our entire year out (it CAN be done!

Monkey Classroom Theme showed us oodles of cute ideas for decorating our classrooms and creating bulletin boards.
How To Organize Your Classroom Using Recycled Items showed us how using items headed for the trash can not only save our planet, but save us some moolah as well! ('Cuz we all love having a little extra moolah around, do we not?!)
