Big news and a Freebie!

I am so excited to announce that I will be taking the plunge into 2nd grade this year! As you may or may not know, I was teaching 1st grade part-time last year. I was co-teaching with another teacher (she taught the beginning of the week, I taught at the end of the week). I've been trying for a very long time to get a full-time position and I found out two days ago that I got this position! The best part is that it's in the same school, so I'll be rolling up with my firsties!

As soon as I found out I got the job, the wheels in my head started turning. Before I can focus on the lesson plans and curriculum, I have to make my new classroom cute!! I can't start working in my classroom until August 12th (school starts on September 5th), but I can't wait to show off my new room! Here is a sneak peek of my key elements:
{Lanterns from School Girl Style, book bins from Really Good Stuff, desk organizer from Pottery Barn, the chevron teacher bag I ordered from The Carpenter's Wife!}

I'm calling my classroom theme chevron & brights!
Of course I had to make new things to go with this theme, so I re-did my schedule signs with bright-colored words (you can get this from my TpT store).
 But I couldn't stop there! I had to make more coordinating signs, so I created these below and I'm giving them away for FREE! Just click on any of the images below to get them from Google Docs!
