Two For Tuesday!

Hey everyone!  It seems like it has taken me most of the summer to relax, but I feel like I'm finally getting there and achieving small things as I go along!  Sometimes, as teachers, I get the impression that we beat ourselves up if we are not constantly in a whirlwind, juggling ten things at once!  I think I have spent the summer reprimanding myself for not doing this or that and got in a bit of a funk for a while, but now, just when I feel I'm starting to get it together, school looms large - haha - can't win!
What I really want to say is - I need another month off!  I am ready to see people and do things, but should be getting ready for school starting!  My car is jam packed full of 'stuff' for my room makeover, but I can't get into school - I am refusing steadfastly to take everything out again!!  I have shopped in the TpT sale and have my first week's plans done already.  Do I have a clue what I'm doing with this new grade? - not really, but I'll learn as I go - I hope!  Luckily I am looping up with last year's students, so at least I know where they finished and where they need to move on to.  I'm kinda half sorted - I want to get back and get stuck in, but don't want to wish my last couple of weeks away!
I know many of you have already started back and mostly have your shopping done for back to school.  I hope everyone is having a successful start and settling in to their new year and getting to know their new kiddos!  Most people out there probably have a week under their belts and are feeling pretty exhausted.  So I am bringing you something to put a smile on those tired faces!!  I am going to continue with The Teaching Tribune's Two For Tuesday linky!

Today I want to offer you two products that I feel most proud of - I hope you are planning ahead - lol!  Both are currently at half price until tomorrow.  I hope you take advantage of this great deal!
