Yes, that is right... The time has come for reality to set in. Summer is slipping away quicker than I would like. Yesterday was one of the first days I got to spend in my classroom getting ready for a new batch of kiddos. I walked into this:
Not bad, considering it was all put back the way I left it. I was prepared to move furniture, so this was a pleasant surprise.
I have been doing a TON of printing, cutting and laminating to get ready. Here is my evidence:
I only have 4 small bulltin boards in my classroom. One is our ELA Concept Board, one is for math, one is for writing AND I have one left that I use for our story vocabulary (because our Concept Board is too small for everything) and my classroom monitors. So, I HAVE to get creative on where I post things
I use the door that connects to my team partner's room for my birthday board. I am going to take pictures of the kids in groups by each month. All the kids who have a birthday in January will be in one picture. They will each hold a number with the DAY they were born that month. Then, I will mount the pictures, laminate them and put them under the correct month. I will post a finished product later on.
This is my helper board. Each student's name is on the circle and then glued to a tongure depressor. Each pocket has the classroom job title and a description of the job. We change our jobs every Monday.
This just a sneak peek into my classroom world. I will show you more as I get things done and then I will do a BIG reveal before school starts!
Happy Friday everyone! Enjoy the weekend. I am off to Hurrican Harbor with my boys!
