Summer Stock Up!

Amanda from The Primary Gal is back with another amazing idea! The Summer Stock Up! This time we have tried to incorporate our blogs, Facebook pages, and Pinterest, as well as getting you ready to go back to school! 

Ahhhh! Back to School! If you are like me the words make me cringe! I haven't even finished school yet! We go until next Friday, June the 27th! But the weather is beautiful and it's a perfect time to "Stock Up" on all those things you need to make your classroom look amazing!


Have you checked out Pink Cat Studio. She is an artist out British Columbia whom I absolutely adore. A lot of my products feature her work. My absolute favourite is my animal-themed word wall.  


It was a huge hit in my classroom this year. The students loved it. It also got them interested in some uncommon animals such as a Yak or an X-ray Fish. 

What I also love about my word wall is that it is interactive. When a student needs a word they can go up to the word wall and help find the word, take it to their desk and return it when they are finished.

On the back of each of my words is a magnet. Which makes it super easy for students to take the words down and put them back up.

If animals aren't your thing, check out my store for all my different themed alphabets: space, super hero kids, pirates, monsters, dogs, robots, kids, and transportation.








This year, other than my alphabet I went with a monster theme in my classroom. One of my favourite monster products is my visual timetable or schedule. 
Sorry about the glare!

My students use it all the time! It saves me from the dreaded, "Is it lunch time yet?" or the "What are we doing now?"

I have included over 30 cards, and I am always willing to add more. If there is a card that you really need to have, please let me know and I will add it to the set!


Alright, so I just said that my  monster visual schedule cards was one of my favourites ... well this is my FAVOURITE!!!!

I made these posters last summer in a variety of themes, but I used the monster ones in my room this year. The students really liked the little monsters. 

They are big enough that students can see the words from their desks.





In Ontario, Grade One students explore different ways that numbers can be represented. I tried to use a variety of different tools to represent each of the numbers.

  1. I love your idea of the interactive word wall! What font did you use for that?

  2. I actually couldn't find a font that would make the box around the word without a line between each of the letters. So I typed the words and then drew the box around the words. It was time consuming but I LOVE how it turned out. Word walls for grades 1, 2, 3 are available in my store.
