LaborLESS Blog Hop!

Hello everyone!

Main Graphic Laborless

It is Finally here!
Today I am linking with Laura from Where the Magic Happens, Krista from Teaching Momster, and Lisa from PAWsitively Teaching! I have joined forces once again with my bloggy friends to bring you the best, most amazing giveaway on this Labor Day weekend! Keep reading, and make sure to join my email club HERE. You will receive a FREE SPANISH prefixes unit just for signing up!

All of us have been thinking about good ways in which to treat our readers and followers.  We thought hard, and I mean it! Really, really hard… and decided that  we can treat you to our best ideas to work smarter rather than harder… at school and home! I know what it takes to be a great teacher, the stress, the time, the energy… I could go on and on! I also know that we crave time to ourselves and our families.

So, I hope you enjoy these ideas to work smarter and NOT harder..... Read all the way to the end for a FREEBIE and GIVEAWAY opportunity!!!
Something that saves me time, money, and helps keep my classroom organized are command hooks! You can practically use them anywhere, they are easy to use, and can help save your sanity :)
In this picture, I show how I use them to keep my computer center organized. Before, I used to have a bag full of headphones that were tangled, messy, etc. NOW, I have a pair at each computer, and my students are responsible for keeping them organized. This has definitely increased the headphones set's durability and eliminated a stack of broken headphones!

Of course teaching takes a whole lot of work and can be stressful trying to keep up with deadlines after deadlines, and more deadlines. Here are some tips to destress after a long work day.
*Pick up your favorite drink on your way home (Mine is a Starbucks tea)
*Turn on a favorite scent diffuser to relax you at home
*Enjoy some music
*Exercise - go for a jog, stretch, relax
*Watch your favorite TV show
*Cook or pick up your favorite meal
*Read a GREAT book (can be related to teaching or not up to you) I just received The Reading Strategies Book and can't wait to dive in :) Wooooo!

Imagine having word work activities ready for the entire year for your bilingual kiddos?!?! Check out my Word Work YEARLY BUNDLE which is discounted to save you money. This item is in SPANISH so feel free to forward my page to any colleague that you feel NEEDS this in their life!

Now, with September 11th fast approaching, I have a FREEBIE in both English and Spanish for you to enjoy! Click on each picture to get your FREE download!


Top all these great tips and ideas  with these top-notch prizes!

A $100 gift card to Amazon
