my classroom

Here's a tour of my classroom.  It's very plain.  Once we get going, there will be anchor charts posted and kids' work hanging.  The pictures start with looking at the front of the room and then turning to the left.  Enjoy!

 After we finish our chapter read aloud book, I choose a student to draw a cover for the book.  I post them above these cabinets.

 That empty-looking wall has clothes pins glued on.  That's where I hang students' work.  The blue paper above the cabinets is where my word wall is.
 The numbers under the cabinets are envelopes where I put the multiplication and division fast facts.
And there you have it.  Welcome to Room 73!

Meet the Teacher was on Friday.  Oh man, I'm going to have my hands full with a couple too-involved parents.  Wow.  I'm already expecting 10 emails a day from them every day.  Why does my principal do this to me?  Besides those parents, most of my kids seem darling.  I guess we'll see how I feel about them come May...
Meet the Teacher.

Well, today I clocked in my first "real" day of the school year.  I returned home 11 hours later.  Not bad.  Not bad.  I'm sure many of you can rival that time.
I came back into town Saturday afternoon.  Do you find unpacking your suitcase to be one of the most dreaded tasks to complete upon your arrival?  I do.  And it always looks like my suitcase exploded all over my room for a day or two later.

As you can tell, I still had some rubble to pick up Sunday as well.

Oh man, my upkeep has been awful.  I'm a summer granola girl.  I haven't tweezed my eyebrows for a few weeks.  The only time I open my makeup bag is on Sundays for church.   I wash my hair every 3 days (which is 1 day too long) and then put it back in a ponytail.  I'm terrible.  It's probably really good that school starts for me on Tuesday.

I know a lot of you have already gone back to the classroom and school meetings.  I'm sad to give up my afternoons spent at the pool, reading, quilting, napping, or doing whatever else I felt like.  But, I'm excited to start a new year.  I've collected and gathered SO MANY ideas and lessons from blogs and Pinterest this summer.  I'm itching to get in the classroom and try them out.

P.S. Here's my Pinterest:
