Looking For an Open House Organizational Tool? {And Monday Made-It Too!}

If you are like me, Open House night goes by in the blink of an eye.  You smile a lot, shake lots of hands, and give lots of hugs.  You stress out a little bit before hand wanting everything to go perfect so families feel comfortable in your classroom... and then it's over as quick as it began!

Open House in my classroom is a way for me to meet parents, students, grandparents even... for kids to explore their classroom and for parents to sign-up to donate, volunteer, and supply our classroom with things throughout the year.

Last year I put together a fully customizable Open House tool to take the stress off of you so you can enjoy the night!  Just open in PowerPoint, type your own info, print, and DONE!... but I think it was just after everyone's Open House last year so I wanted to show it off early this year!
Check it out on TpT

I was so happy when I got the opportunity for my sweet friend The Good Enough Teacher to review this product AND give one away on her blog this week!

You can click the picture to head to her blog and see what she had to say about the pack and for your chance to win!  I'm going to give away two at Krystal's blog this week!  She's got several great giveaways lined up in the coming weeks, so be sure to follow her to keep up!

I am off to the car dealership where my SUV is getting FOUR re-calls taken care of!  YUCK!  Coincidentally, the dealership is right next to a Target, Hobby Lobby, and Dollar Tree!  So, if you need me, you know where I'll be!

Pop in tomorrow for a little giveaway of my own from my friends at Learning Resources!  You don't want to miss it!

And... I'm linking up for Monday Made-It again!  I've been busy this week creating for my classroom.  You saw my CRAZY piles yesterday... {click HERE if you missed it!}... so this week it's been all files because I can't add one more thing to my stack!
Tara's post last week on Monday Made-It inspired me to revamp my "Homework Club" pack and here it is...
 Check it out on TpT - it's $1 off right now!

And I JUST finished a new opinion writing resource pack!  It's hot off the presses!  I'll even send a copy to one person... you see, today I have to take my car to the dealership to get many recalls fixed.  BOO!  Currently, I am driving without air bags, which is just one example of something getting fixed today.  I do not know when I will get home.  But, when I do, I will immediately get on the computer (as soon as I can) and will send the pack to a random comment.  I already wrote down the number I am going to pick so hopefully the comments can get there while I'm gone!   Just be sure to leave your e-mail address!  I'll announce the winner on my Facebook page too!

Here are some pics of what I made...
