Hard to believe, but I need to get back to school and get busy! Went into my room yesterday to get a paint cup. Dear sweet hubby is making me a new 4-sided painting easel station. It is looking so awesome. I will post pictures as soon as it is finished! Anyway, went into my room and --OH MY GOODNES! My room looks so bare and unfinished - but wonderfully clean! I love the bright shiny clean floors at the beginning of the school year. I have so much work to do. I get so overwhelmed during this time of the year. Seems like just yesterday I was packing the room up for it's summer cleaning!
I have been so busy this summer! Let's see what I have done for my dear sweet kinders this summer:
*Made Zero the Hero puppet.
*Made several small drawstring bags out of adorable blue fabric with yellow stars - will use these for dice and game pieces for math and literacy tubs.
*Read, from cover to cover, Math Work Stations by Debbie Diller.
*Repaired torn chair pockets - going on their 4th year of use!! PHEW!!! Might need to make new ones!
*Created new labels for my book tubs in my classroom library. They look awesome - will post pics of those soon - as soon as I get back in with my camera.
*Starting to read, AGAIN, Talking, Drawing, Writing Lesson for our Youngest Writers by Martha Horn and Mary Ellen Giacobbe
*Bought several, several books from my favorite place to shop for them -- Garage Sales!! Beefing up the old library!
*And oh yeah------Creating my first ever BLOG!!!
Oh my goodness, I really haven't even scratched the surface of all I want to do!
A teacher's work is never done!!
