Carson-Dellosa Mania!

At the beginning of August, I was asked by Carson-Dellosa to be a Brand Ambassador!!!  I was SO excited!  I have been a HUGE Carson-Dellosa fan since I started teaching.  This year is going to be so much fun, checking out new products and writing reviews.

I am having so much fun decorating my classroom with all of my Carson-Dellosa goodies!!  At the end of the school year, I wanted to leave the boards up so that there was less to do when I came in this August.  However, once I saw the  Chalkboard collection from Carson-Dellosa, all of my ideas changed and I am SO glad they did!

I am absolutely LOVING the Colorful Chalkboard Collection!  The bulletin board set comes with a calendar, birthday chart, incentive chart, and door label.  It's 40 pieces and my favorite part of it is that the numbers for the calendar are oval shaped.  I love that they changed up the typical square numbers and made them oval!  I also love LOVE love that the letters are PREPUNCHED!!!!!  Seriously??  YES!!!  I am getting rid of all my other letters and replacing them with Carson-Dellosa Prepunched letters!!!!!  I am one happy teacher!!!!

Another item that I am excited to use is the Language Arts Interactive Notebook Templates!  I have been using interactive notebooks for about 2 years.  After looking through this book and reviewing my curriculum, I know that this will come in extremely handy this year!!!  I love when my students are hands on, and this book is going to really give them the change to use hands on learning!  It's also Common Core aligned!  Here is a great video showing more about how to use this book in your classroom!

The final product that I received was the Common Core Assessment Record Book.  This book looks AMAZING, but it's not something that I can utilize in my classroom.  It comes with space for 30 students, and unfortunately, just like most private and charter schools, I have more than 30 students in my class.  36 to be exact.  My principal was considering buying one for each of our teachers to use, but decided against it since there wasn't room for all students.  I am hoping maybe next year, there will be more space!!

Overall, I am REALLY excited about the products that Carson-Dellosa has come out with!  My classroom looks amazing and I can't wait to do a reveal on Wednesday afternoon!!!!  More picture to come!
