I can only sum up my week with 4 words…
OH. MY. WORD. GUYS!!!!!!
This was my first week back to school and I am already exhausted! I didn’t know it was humanly possible to do as much as I have done this week! For realsies! So, I felt this was a PERFECT opportunity to link up with Doodle Bugs to tell give you the low down on my week!
Teachers started back Tuesday this week, and I was right there with ’em.
It was so nice to see familiar faces and meet sooooo many new people! We spent most of Tuesday in a meeting… which was torture at the time (Have you ever noticed teachers are not really good at sitting for extended periods?) But we emerged full of information and excitement to start the new year. (Plus it meant we got to spend the rest of preplanning in our rooms! PTL!)
It took FOREVER… but somehow I was able to finish my room this week! Just in time for the kiddos! WHEW! Here are a few highlights!
New word wall and “Student of the Week” bulletin board
(You can check out my “Student of the Week” Mini Bulletin Board by clicking here)
I completely reorganized and combed through my library. I have a system in place, and I am ready to use it! 🙂 Will post more on that to come!
We’re ready for “Meet the Teacher!”
New Clip Chart Up!
Love how bright and cheerful it is! (You can grab this kit by click here)
