I'm sure you've heard about SitSpots.  If not, you are in luck with today's post (and a giveaway!!).  
These babies are AMAZING!



Anyone's classroom rug ever look like this?
What a great solution to keeping kids in their own personal space.  

BUT... tape on the carpet can be a nightmare.  I know my custodians get very grumpy when they see tape on our carpets.  Not only is it hard to clean on top of, the tape ruins the carpet and leaves marks when you eventually take it off.

But as elementary teachers we know how important it is that everyone have their own space on the carpet.  It completely helps manage your little angels and keep them engaged on the teaching... and not their BFF twirling their hair next to them.  Am I right?!


Then along came...

These are SO much better than tape!  You put them on your carpet... and they STICK.  I mean, really stick.  The custodians can even vacuum over them and they won't come up.  Seriously.  My custodians have tried!  And when you want to take them off at the end of the year, or change them up, you can.  I've even washed mine to keep them fresh for the new school year.

Be sure when putting them on your carpet you have your rolling pin!  It's worth the extra effort to make sure your spots stay put.


There are a TON of colors and shapes you can buy.  Your carpet can match virtually any theme or decor.  I have a set of aqua blue and neon green circles that match my classroom colors.



As soon as I saw the shape SitSpots I imediately thought of Twister.  How fun will this be when we are working on our geometry unit in math?!  Get those kiddos up and moving.  
Right hand rhombus?  Yes, please!!!

(I took these pics in my apartment since it's summer... and I'm not quite ready to go back into my classroom just yet, haha!)


SitSpots offers a free sample if you visit their website so you can check these out for yourself. 

Even better, Joyce, the creator of SitSpots, generously donated a couple gift cards for me to give away!!!  I'm so excited to spread the SitSpot love.  These really are such a lifesaver in the classroom.

The giveaway ends next Sunday so make sure you get your entries in ASAP!



August and a major sale!!!

Time to link up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade for this month's Currently...



Listening - I'm a little behind on my Netflixing, but I'm finishing up Season 3 of Orange is the New Black.  Love those crazy prison girls!

Loving - I know many of you are going back to school this week... but I still have the month off.  I would feel guilty about bragging about this, but y'all were kicking off summer in May, so you've had your fun, haha!

Thinking - I'm heading back to Chicago this week to spend time with my sister's family.  They just moved into a new house so there is much more space for fun, fun, fun!  Can't wait to get my snuggles on with my lil' nephew and my nieces.

Wanting - I want start my new book about Whole Brain Teaching!  I have dabbled in Whole Brain methods, but this year I really want to do it up right.  I can't wait to get started on this book...


Needing - I am in need of a snack and a nap... preferably in that order!

B2S RAK - Who doesn't want a few sweets to kick off the year?!  I know my sugar cravings are high when it's time to go back to school, and so are my colleagues!

What are you Currently up to?!
