First Week


I've made it through.  Only one more day to go!  And it's an exciting one, as tomorrow is my first day with my new class! We've spent the week rotating through a variety of fun stations as well as those to refresh school expectations.  We also introduced our new house teams today.  (Go Green!)

Here is my plan for tomorrow all written up on the board.  Please don't judge my printing; I'll never have "teacher writing".  After an assembly to figure out where everyone is going we will have a busy busy day!  I'm not sure how we will fit it all in, or if we will, but we shall do our best.  I've even got two writing activities planned.








As I only got my class list after school today, I scrambled about to  label everything and get the desks all ready.  I was at school until 6:00 and now I am TIRED!  Here are a few shots of what I did:

All laid out.
Every desk has a pencil and eraser inside ready to go.  The kids bring their own supplies, but I'll deal with those on the weekend.  That's all they will need tomorrow anyhow.  On top of their desk is their agenda, a smiley face pencil and an owl bookmark.  I really wanted to do a cute welcoming gift, I really did.  I have in the past.  I just didn't get there this year. 


Coat hooks and baskets.
I labeled the coat hooks with owls to coordinate through my room.  Everyone has a basket as well for their lunch kit, agenda, toques, and mitts throughout the day, and their shoes at night.  Those have the same owl on them.  Unfortunately, MacTac didn't stick to those baskets.  I had to use packing tape.  It's all bumpy and overlapping and I don't like it.  It's the little things that get me, folks.

Magnetic!
Lastly, I made a third set of the owls which I laminated and added a magnet to the back of each.  These will go on my white board for my daily voting question.

Whew, that's a lot of labeling.  I'm going to bed early tonight. Can't wait to meet my kiddos!

  1. Um...don't worry about your handwriting. Mine's much worse :)

    If my students ever complain that they can't read it, I just tell them that it's practice for college!
