It's going to be a fabulous in FIRST year!!!

Happy Day 1 Firsties!!

Well, school started back today and I am so excited about my class!! I have the best group of kiddos and can't wait to see them all grow! Today was a day of catch up and info. Tomorrow - routines, routines, routines. I'm excited to get on schedule and get this class going! Welcome First Grade!!!

Days 6-9, class set up.

Ok, I've been so busy I forgot to update each day. Every time I cleared the desks I would organized another area and the desks would be messy again. So, Saturday at 7pm the tables were cleared and ready for our first day back!! I was ├╝ber excited!!

Day 5 - in the room.

Ok, it's been a very long day and I was able to organize and hang quite a few things. I'm still trying to figure out how to arrange my desk space and our reading focus board. I'm hoping to finish 1 of 3 boards tomorrow, so we'll see...

Classroom days 3 & 4

I spent an hour in my room between trainings on day 3. I'd like to think I accomplished something but I think the only thing I accomplished was buying more fun items for our room. Thanks to a wonderful teacher friend!!
So... the room is still very unorganized but that's part of the process. :-)

I'm going back tomorrow..

So, my last post was 5 days ago. I went to school a couple of days ago and did a little work but didn't accomplish to much. I bought a new bookshelf and put that crazy thing together.. wheww!!! Happy that's complete! The new table I bought for our fabulous writing area didn't have all needed parts so back to Ikea I go. I should have that finished by Thursday though. I'm excited to see if it fits in its special place. I'll post new pictures of the room over the next few days so keep an eye out. It's getting close to our first day so I better hurry...

Days 1 & 2 of room set up

I forgot to take a picture of what our rooms really look like when we return from summer break. So, this was after a couple of hours in the room my first two days. All of the furniture was pushed against one wall and everything else was stored in cabinets. So I started arranging and setting up. Doesn't look that way based on the picture but I got quite a bit done. I've been struggling with my class arrangement because I wanted to try something new this year. We'll see if it stays this way when all is said and done...
