Today is my first official day of summer vacay and can I just tell you I am lovin’ it?! Mainly because I got to sleep in this am…
So yesterday was the last day of school and although it was low key, it was very productive!
I spent the am helping a fellow teacher clean out her storage area in the pod…
I seriously should have taken a before pic for this mini organization make over… it is like night and day!
Then I spent the early afternoon getting things ready for next year. I am blessed to know that I’ll be staying in 2nd grade and in my current classroom, so I was able to get a head start on prepping and ordering items for next school year. Early organization?! My heart sings!
From this pack, I went ahead and printed out some of the “Welcome” sign up sheets,
and the volunteer sign up sheet.
I also went ahead and ordered my student information sheet…
and a WHOLE bunch of student checklists…
I can never seem to have enough of these!
I also started ordering recording pages for my most popular and favorite activities!
What incoming 2nd grader doesn’t need a little reminding on writing conventions? LOL!
These two are great for beginning of the year “training centers”. Click here or the pictures to check these out at my store!
My district had a huge push for student led discussions this year and it was an activity I know my kiddos enjoyed this year. I want to def continue this practice, so I went a head and ordered the 2nd grade self evaluation rubrics for my discussion cards.
One of my favorite beginning of the year activities is this writing craft centered around, “Mr. Putter and Tabby”, so I went ahead and ordered the pieces for this writing craft early.
I also took a few minutes and ordered recording sheets for math centers next year. I really want to prefect my math time next year and I know I’ll be getting a lot of use out of this pack!
If you stayed with me until the end, I promise it was worth your time! I love being organized an ready to go early and I know other teachers love that feeling too.
