Ah, friends. It's time. School starts on Wednesday. I have worked all summer preparing my room, going to trainings to prepare my mind, studying up again on classroom procedures, assessments, engagement activities, morning meeting, reading workshop, the new common core standards, etc. It's been quite a ride! As many of you following along know, I went back to school to be a teacher and am now about to start my very first year in my own 4th grade classroom! What a fun time! I am nervous and anxious, but I also feel very prepared and just ready for this journey! We had open house tonight and I met most of my students and their parents and I just believe it is going to be a wonderful year! Here are some pics of my classroom!
Empty classroom, ready to be given that special touch!
Phase one of the setup - arrange the desks, do the bulletin board & bring in the book boxes!
Reading & Computer areas at the beginning of the summer.
Teacher desk & small group table. Notice my fabulous curtains my mom made!
Reading area - a little more set up! Love the tree!!
Ready for Open House!!
Open House View from the door!
Don't you wish you were in 4th grade again??
