A NEW look, a NEW last name and NEW reward coupons! {Flash Giveaway} - Saddle up for Second Grade

A NEW look, a NEW last name and NEW reward coupons! {Flash Giveaway}

I'm baaaccckkk!!! After a month and half of no internet, I am FINALLY married, moved into my new house, and we now have internet! I am so excited to be able to blog again! I have been having serious withdrawals. The hubby just didn't understand!

I have SO much to share but first things first....what do you think of my new blog look! The fabulous Christi from Ms. Fultz's Corner designed it for me and did an AMAZING job! I've been working on putting this together since May. She was great to work with and didn't mind my crazy schedule that has been going on these past few months! My new look has actually been ready for a few weeks but without the internet, I couldn't get the final touches set up. Thankfully its all finished and I love the way it turned out! Head on over to her blog and show her some love!

I'm a now a married woman! If we e-mail back and forth or if your use to seeing my name as Marcy Fambro, that has all changed! I've been married since June 22nd, but my name was officially changed to Marcy Bernethy yesterday at the SS office! I will have wedding pics to post soon! I've had a few e-mails asking to see moments of the big day! They are to come soon! I promise! Here is a sneak peak of my big day!

*fist pump!*

Even though I haven't had the internet for awhile, I have still been busy working on a few new products to show ya'll! Over the next few days I'll be sharing some of them with you! I'm working on getting them uploaded to TPT now! I've also been working on updating some of the first products I created to give them a better look! One of my most popular items has been my classroom rewards coupons.

Last year I did away with my treasure box and tried the coupon system instead. This was one of the best decisions I've made. The kids loved it but the best part about them is that it didn't cost me ANYTHING! This file originally included 22 classroom reward coupons. You can read about them here. I have added 13 NEW coupons to this file as well as a FREEBIE to my classroom rewards notebook.  I keep my in a binder in plastic sleeves. This works out so great!! When they fill up their sticker chart, they knew exactly where the binder is kept, they pick out their coupon, and then they are excited and good to go! Here is what my binder looks like!

If you already own them be sure to head on over to TPT and redownload them. They also have cute, updated fonts!

Since I've been away for awhile, I'll giveaway my new coupons to the first three people to comment below! Just leave me your e-mail address below and tell me how you could use these in your classroom!

I hope everyone has been having a GREAT summer! Don't forget to follow me on instagram @saddleupfor2ndgrade!


  1. Wow, these look fabulous! This will be my first year teaching 2nd after teaching 4th for 7 years! I was trying to decide what to do for rewards and these would be great to use!
    Fabulous and Fun 4th Graders

    1. Check your e-mail Jessica! My coupons are headed your way! Thanks so much!

  2. Congrats MRS.!!! That is such a fun wedding photo! No internet for a month and a half. I can't survive a day without it. Sad, but true. I'd love your coupons! I like the "no treasure box" idea, so I'd probably go that route with them!

    Hippo Hooray for Second Grade!

    1. Girl, you have no idea how hard it is to not have the internet. I now realize what a privilege it is to have it. Check your e-mail! :)

  3. Congrats on the wedding...what an exciting time in your life! I love your photograph, it is too sweet! I teach students with special needs so I tend to stay away from the treasure box because they don't need any more "junk" to "distract" them! I would love to use your coupons-they are too cute!!

    Congrats again on your wedding...I can't wait to see more pictures!

    Thank you, Caity!


    1. Thank you Caity! Check your e-mail! I hated the treasure box. Even though they love that "junk" it just wasn't working for me!

  4. Love your wedding pic. We just got back from our 7 year anniversary trip:)

    Beautiful day!

    1. Thank you! Congratulations on 7 years! Where did you go for your celebrations?

  5. Hi Marcy!!
    Congratulations! and kudos to you for getting your rear-end down to the SS office and changing your name. My 22nd anniversary is next month, and I still haven't changed my name!!! I use my married name, but I haven't officially and legally become a "hester". Anyway, now that you are back online, come check out my new blog - Little Second-Grade Somebodies died :(
    Glad to see you back.

    1. Hey Karen!! I've missed the blogging world. You've never changed your name? Shame on you! I'm kidding. I had to get on it. We couldn't get anything put in our "name" until I changed it. It was actually quite an ordeal! What happened to Second-Grade Somebodies??? That makes me sad but I'm glad you still have your words of wisdom to follow. I'm now following The 85 Mile Commute!

  6. Love getting rid of the treasure book. Easy rewards that the kids will love!
    Congrats on getting married! How exciting!


  7. Love the idea of reward coupons. I am tired of my prize box and the kids don't really care. They have so much that they really don't care about a prize from the prize box. I think I am going to try doing this this coming year. Welcome back.


  8. CONGRATS, Marcy!!!!!! Cute picture--love the colors of the flowers! And thanks for helping out with my giveaway today!! I am excited about the Uno game for my higher 1st graders. :)
