I have to start by saying that I LOVE summer. There's nothing better then a reading a good book by the pool on a sunny day :) However, with this late school start this year, I am anxious to get back into the swing of things! Our first official teacher day is Tuesday (September 4th) and our first day with our kiddos will be Thursday! I cannot wait to meet the little yahoos :)0
In the meantime, amidst all the chaos of getting my classroom ready, I've also been trying to enjoy these last few days of sunshine and pool time. Today I spent all morning in my room, and managed to wrap everything up just in time to get to the pool for a few hours before our game tonight. I definitely enjoyed some good old romance novel reading... but in preparation for the school year I of course felt the need to do some educational reading as well. So I finished up my reading of...
A great resource that I am going to utilize in my room this year!
I cannot wait to go in early next week and take pictures of my classroom to reveal to all of you! I have to say, I absolutely LOVE it. It feels so much like home and is completely my personality. It just adds to my excitement to go into work everyday; I hope my kids love it as much as I do :)
My Cricut certainly got its use today as well! (Talk about classroom necessities, I just have the mini cricket and I couldn't survive without it; thank you Aunt Dawn!!)
Here she is, working hard even at home tonight after working hard all day!!
I was able to make some great bulletin board letters and my birthday cupcakes for my birthday bulletin board!
My last item on my agenda tonight....
Lots of laminated stuff to cut out! This is the last of it and I am of course enlisting hubby for his expert cutting skills ;)
Here's to having my classroom done and a few days of relaxing before the school year is underway! Enjoy your Friday everyone :)
