Free Flipped Signs! (more supplies...)


I promise this is the last time I'll blog about these signs--because I am officially done making my supply signs!! I made a ton today for all of our community supplies because EVERYTHING is going in these little baskets this year!
Um, that little doodle I found for the highlighters is supposed to be a lipstick--the kids won't notice right?!? I think it can pass for a highlighter...

So I have a bunch of these for our supplies around the room, but compiled the most typical ones to share on here. If you would like to read more about how I set up these baskets (and access some more free files) you read all about it here: Community Supply Baskets

If you would like any of the files shown in the preview below, please click on the image for a free download at my shop:
But wait!!! Before you go! I have to tell you some exciting news! I got an email from our principal today saying my room was one of the classrooms already cleaned and set to go for the next year. I can't believe it! It's never ready this early--we just got out two weeks ago! 

So, I could just say it's the beginning of the summer and relax and forget about it. OR...I could fly in and set up early next week and NOT go back until school starts at the end of August, which would be something totally new for me. 

What would you do?? I think you guys all know what I'll end up doing...  ;)

  1. Oh, Kristen! Thank you so much for these...I was going to try to make some myself because I didn't want to bother you...but yay!!! Now, I don't have to, because you are so stinkin' awesome!

    In my opinion (and what I did) go in, set it up and then sit back and relax!!!!!!!!

    Enjoy your summer!

    Thanks again!

  3. Wow, thanks for sharing. I need to invest in the circle-cutter-thingy ;) so I can use all your wonderful resources! Lipstick, highlighter, it's all the same - just don't forget to wear makeup - the kids notice that!

    Cheers!

    If I found out my room was ready, I know I would be in there asap no matter how much I would like to say otherwise! Have fun setting up! =)

  6. You are on a roll Kristen! I love these labels. I know what I would do and probably what you will do. I am probably going to head over to school tomorrow to do a couple of things but I have a lot less summer vacation than you do. Thanks!

  8. Thank you!! These are so cute. I can't wait to use them. I'm a procrastinator and I would wait to go in. I just love my summers too much. I try to forget about school in the summer time and I always feel so refreshed at the end of summer for another year. It just works for me.

  10. I am LOVING these signs!! I say you should enjoy every minute of your summer & only go in a week or two before you are supposed to return. :) I probably wouldn't take my own advice though lol. I'd probably be up there unpacking everything the minute they would let me in the door! :)

  11. I would totally be up at school!!! My room isn't ready yet! :( they are putting in tile! I just printed off your other supply signs and letters for my word wall! I love them. I have to ask how you made the circle ones with the little dots around the edge. Is that a clipart item or something you make in word?

  12. I love your stuff, Kristen!!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!!

  14. LOVE these sign.
    NONE of us are allowed to go in until August 6 or something like that, when admin. goes back. They take our keys away on our last workday! Otherwise, I would totally go in early, get it all set to go and not be in a frenzy those few days before the kids show up.

  15. Sweetest Kristen:

    I know what you are going to do.
    And I know I would do exactly the same thing.

    Your awesomeness astounds me.

  16. Cute signs! I say go back in now. My advice is a little biased, since that is what I am doing now. I like to have as little stress as possible during back to school, where you can worry more about lesson plans then classroom set up. Plus, if you need more time for something, you have it now rather than in August.

  17. Those signs are so cute! Thanks for sharing. We got the same message from our principal, but managed to stay away at least for this week. We're going to crack next week for sure...Get it done, then kick up your feet. Good luck. :)

  20. You are so lucky you have a principal that lets you go in early!! My principal sadly doesn't seem to understand how long it can take to set up a room just so and last year I was not allowed to set up until the Monday before school started which drove me bonkers after being changed from first to K. (I had to change rooms as well as set up and plan. Sigh) So far this year, a co-worker and I have decided to be sneaky and ask the custodians to let us in to start once our rooms are done.
    So from this I am sure you know my advice is go ahead!

  21. These signs are prefect!! Thank you! I have my supplies in draws with small labels so now the kids will find everything on the first day!! I work at a private school so I am always stopping by (in fact my head of school encourages me, my room is too cluttered, LOL, BECAUSE WE ARE ALWAYS DOING FUN THINGS!!)
    Love your blog!

  22. I went into the building yesterday (I'm such a nerd) and found out that I probably won't get in until the 2nd week of August. EGADS!!! We start the 22nd WITH kids, and have meetings on that Monday and Tuesday. My vote is to put your room together and then enjoy more summer! :)

  23. You are now my go-to blog. Sometimes I log in and you are writing about exactly what I am thinking about. Like this morning! I went by my room yesterday and found the floors stripped and cleaned. Found the custodians and they said all they had left to do was vacuum. I spent two hours cleaning out and revitalizing. Today I am going in for more. Can you imagine having those last two weeks of summer NOT full of panic? The ability to stroll in for in-service days two days before school starts with the only job being the printing of finalized class lists is my dream. Get it done, girl! And then (if you are anything like me)you can truly enjoy your summer.

  24. Oh, lucky you! If it were me I would definitely go in early and get set up so that I didn't have to worry about it again until it was time to go back. That would definitely be a relaxing end to summer!! I'm sure you'll let us know what you choose, don't forget to take lots of pics! =)

  28. Thank you so much for sharing. How do you make your signs? What computer program do you use? Where do you find the fonts and clipart?

    ReplyDelete
  29. LOVE THESE. Especially the lipstick. :) :) :)
    If I could get in my room (and I can't), I think I'd go in once a week. Then, I wouldn't be mad-dashing it the week before the kids come which makes me exhausted and no fun to be around. I mean, obviously, that's the perfect way to start a school year so I don't know why I'm trying to change it up.
    So I say stick with me. Mad-dash it the week before the kids come.

  38. I am with Sheena. I absolutely LOVE these signs and would like to have them around the rest of the room as well. Tried to convert to word, but that doesn't work. :/ pretty please when you get a chance do you think you could make editable ones? :)

  43. Hi Kristen~ I am switching grade levels and classrooms and have used your large basket labels...thanks so much!! They look fantastic with my new room and decor. I just went through every page on Teacher's Notebook and didn't see the "sharpened pencils," "unsharpened pencils" anywhere. Is is possible to have you send them to me, so they match the rest of the signs? Thanks so much!! I am loving your Blog with all the great ideas!! mmurray@conejousd.org

  44. Hi Kristen! I love these labels and would love to use them in my classroom, but I am unable to find them in the link you provided. Is there any way you can email them to me or post them on your TpT store? Thank you! :)
