Ugh… Lunch count. I can never remember to do it. That and taking my attendance. Can’t there be a lunch count and attendance fairy that comes to my room each morning and does it for me? Can’t I just teach?!
Maybe I can hire a 6th grader to come do it for me. Yes, we have 6th graders at our elementary school. Don’t even get me started. Most of those 11 and 12 year olds should be no where near my sweet 6 year olds. They are a different breed and bless all of you teachers out there who teach anything with raging hormones. Give me tying shoes and loose teeth and bandaids making everything all better any day.
Hello friends! I am so excited to be bringing you my first grade classroom tour today! :) I usually post a tour before school even starts, but this year I decided to wait until we were a few weeks in. I’m really glad I did b/c a real classroom has students in it every day- and this is how my room currently looks!
I’m headed back to school tomorrow. I’ve been thoroughly trained during this last week of PD and my classroom is mostly ready. My lesson plans are written, copies are made, and books are ready. Everyone is in full on prep mode! I’ve been seeing a lot of thoughtful, reasonable, and well written blog posts out there about all the things you should or should not do in your classroom. But what kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t add my 2 cents into the mix? So here I go! :)
Hello sweet friends! I just wanted to share with you a quick and easy back to school gift that I actually made with stuff I already had in my house! I am going to give this little gift to my teammates, but you could give it to anyone in your school. If you are a parent, this would also be a great gift for your child’s teacher!
