We were going to have another but funds were cut :(
She is GREAT! On her site right now you can find directions on how to earn 5000 bonus points for your classroom. She also posted a letter to send home to the parents, stars to color as your class works towards their goal of an order of $275, and certificates for the students that order. I have used this for several years and it WORKS! Good luck everyone and enjoy spending those points!!
or try this
I am trying to get into the swing of things. Since I have moved from 2nd to 3rd I feel like I am a first year teacher again. Learning the curriculum and the WAY they teach it. I know I will come up with my own way and add my own swagger but for right now I just want to know what my grade level has been doing and what has worked for them.
I am very excited to teach 3rd grade though...everything is fresh and new and exciting!!
I will be making some things to add to my blog soon to share with everyone. I am planning on spending this weekend getting prepared for our first full week with the kids next week. We are diving in with the curriculum.
Hurricane Irene has hit us here in
Thanks! See ya later alligators!

Here are some updated pics of my room. It is still not done but it has come OH SO far from when I moved all the boxes in. I plan on getting some stuff done at home this weekend and maybe heading out to school tomorrow for a few minutes. We have Open House on Tuesday so Monday is the last day I have to get all the finishing touches together. We have a workshop ALL day Wednesday and the kiddos come on Thursday. So that means that lesson plans need to be ready and in place by Tuesday before they get there otherwise I will be scrambling at the last minute. OH WOW! I have so much to do.....it may be a few days before I am back so have a good weekend and week!

I had a hard time getting my desks to fit in this small room. I want SOME floor space left so I can call them to the carpet.

Holy exhaustion! (A quote from fellow blogger at "Oh the Places We'll Go") I moved ALL my stuff today to my new room. I moved furniture and boxes for 6 hours after our morning meeting at 8 am. So tired I think I will call it an early night!! As you can see from the pictures I still have SO much left to do. I know I'm not the only one out there in bloggy land that has moved classroom and is exhausted. To all of you I give you a high five , at least I would if I could muster the energy to raise my hand! I will post the progress as it comes, inch by inch.
