Colorful Chalkboard EZ Letters from Carson-Dellosa Publishing

My classroom is my second home.  For that reason, I want it to look as inviting and happy as possible.  I received the Colorful Chalkboard EZ Letters from Carson-Dellosa Publishing.  These look fantastic all around my room.  They're modern, fun and appeal to both boys and girls of all ages.


Don't you just love the different coordinating patterns?  It's like a party in a package!  These also helped me save so much time when decorating my classroom.  All of the 4" letters and numbers come pre-punched. Yes!!!  If you're a teacher, little things like this excite you.


The set includes 76 pieces - 52 letters, 10 numbers and 14 punctuation symbols.  There are many coordinating products in this design that will help you create one contemporary classroom.  Head on over to Carson-Dellosa Publishing to check out their Chalkboard Decor.


The Common Core Assessment Record Book is a great tool all teachers should own.  This has quickly become my go-to resource for all of my Common Core record-keeping needs.  It's easy to use, allows me to quickly find the standards for math and language arts as well as manage a year's worth of assessments.  This 96-page book is my holy grail, and I love that it's spiral bound.

The Funky Monkey Favorites


I received some really fun jewelry from CoCo Grand.  I love all of their affordable and trendy pieces. One piece that has been a go-to-fav of mine is their Beaded Statement Necklace.  I love that it's not too big, but adds the perfect punch of color to an outfit.  Available in four beautiful colors.  At only $15.50, you can't go wrong!  Approximately 18-20 inches of chain with 36 acrylic beads.  Right now you can take 10% OFF with the code 10GRAND.


As an elementary teacher, I'm always looking for books that will inspire my students and capture their attention.  This week, they really enjoyed BetterNot! And the Tale of Bratsville.  I teach social skills every day in my class, and this book fit right in.  BetterNot! features a mysterious character who arrives in a flash to aid parents by helping their children learn fun, yet valuable lessons about morals and manners such as fairness, honesty, and kindness.  

The illustrations are colorful and grab the attention of children.  Brattsville is filled with naughty children like Larry Liar, Rebecca Robber and Lilly Loudmouth.  It's a captivating book that teaches children valuable lessons in a fun and creative way.  Watch out!  If children don't obey their parents, BetterNot may come to your town.

If you purchase this book and read it to your children, you can send a request for a personalized poem to BetterNotSeries@gmail.com.  Just list your child's name, the misbehavior for each and that you follow The Funky Monkey.  This author will address each child by name, let them know they are good overall and mention each child's misbehavior.  A suggested way to correct it will be included, and it will also emphasize that you love them dearly.  Your child will love it.  Suggested ages: 4-8.


I use sunscreen on my face daily.  I never leave home without it, but I can't stand the feeling of thick, greasy formulas that feel tacky on my skin or make me break out.  The ultra-sheer Nourishing Fluid Veil Face Sunscreen with SPF 30 provides daily broad spectrum UV coverage and works well under makeup.  The smooth fluid formula absorbs nicely into my skin and keeps my face feeling moisturized and protected from the harmful effects of the sun.


If you've never tried Nonni's THINaddictives, I highly recommend you pick them up the next time you're at the store.  They make great on-the-go snacks for kids and adults.  Each convenient portion-pack is made with real, wholesome ingredients.  They come in a variety of delicious flavors including my personal favorite Cranberry, Cinnamon Raisin and Pistachio.  

These crunchy almond thin cookies average 100-calories or less per serving and contain real fruit and California almonds.  They're low in fat with 3 grams of protein per serving and help keep my sweet tooth satisfied and under control.  


The Liquid Holographic Glitter iPhone Case by The Bling Bling are so pretty!  Their picture does not do this case justice.  I received the pink/purple combination and it's dreamy.  The hearts and holographic glitter move when you tilt your phone.  It's a mesmerizing show of sparkly fun!  Get this in colors purple/aqua, neon orange, neon yellow and pink/purple.  Available for iPhone 5 and 6.  Please note that this case does add thickness to your phone due to the space needed for the moving liquid/glitter.  If extra bulk doesn't bother you, it's worth it due to the sheer beauty of the design.
