Helpers

I had a couple helpers join me in the classroom this week "helping" me get it ready. I have got it all cleaned, the name tags are made, the cubbies have a special treat for each student and the giant bulletin board is created. (I will have to take more pictures on Tuesday.)
 
  Tuesday is official back to school day for teachers and Thursday I will get to meet the 20 or so happy little faces that will call room 108 home for the school year.

And It Begins...


Another summer is winding down, though there is still 2 1/2 weeks left which really is an eternity and if it were July it would feel like summer has just begun, but for teachers our work begins now. I went I to my classroom for the first time today. I'm always a bit overwhelmed  when I see everything but things are beginning to take shape. It's a different feeling this year because last year I was on maternity leave. So it was exciting to start again. 

Here are some before pictures. 

Yikes!


I have a little book addiction- this is maybe a third of what I have!


Making a dent

One of my favorite things to put up each year. Mrs Giglio's wall of fame. All of the class photos of past students. It's amazing when you look at how many children I've had the opportunity to bring into my heart. Each one of them is a memory I hold dear. 



And the fun continues at home. As I begin making folders for parents. I fill them with resources that are important for every kindergartener to have ( alphabet chart, number grid, sight word list ect) then I add my parent packet which gives the families all the info they need for the year, along with a few other interesting resources.
