To say I was eager to start work in my classroom this morning was an understatement!
My favorite things about this time of year include the fact that
1. I’m well rested!
2. I get to be creative!
3. I’m free to work in my room ……. or not……I love that it’s still optional…..
I was so excited I could hardly sleep last night and it made waking up at 7:00 a.m. even more dreadful than it might have been after I’ve spent all summer reacquainting myself with the joys of being a night owl.
I rushed around and finally made it around 9:30. My new co-teacher and I did some exploring and set about putting our rooms in order. I started with my classroom library. I have lots of books and last year I formalized the way that I organized them. Here is the link for my post about how I organize my library called Buried in Books! . There are even FREE downloads! I got all of my books loaded on one of the book shelves by the door, but I’m not finished with it and so I forgot to take a picture….. The big victory for the morning is that both of us managed to wrestle our stereos into submission…..
|This is my stereo!…..under the garbage bags… The speakers are on the top of the cart! Those speakers are literally the largest speakers I have ever seen! They WORK!!!!! You could literally fill the entire school with music with these!|
|Small instrument and teacher storage…..
If I have time I’ll re-label the instruments – I like BIG labels
|I’m proud of what I got done today, but somehow
I thought I’d have time to get that bulletin board done.
Tomorrow Kristen and I are going to really dig into our planning in the morning when we are fresh and ready to go. I’ll post more when I’ve got more to show!
