I have never had a whole summer to prepare a classroom. I am finding I am very overwhelmed because now I feel like things have to be perfect or just right.
I have been spending several hours a day organizing, planningand printing packets getting ready of the big first day of school.
I have to do lists all over the place. They are working well because when I drive out to my class, I just complete a few items on that list. Then, I go home. The hard part is driving the 25 minutes each way. i feel like I have to be able to stay there for an hour or two at least.
I am so excited about the changes that have been made in the class. In August, I will have a classroom reveal. I hope I can wait until then to show you the pictures!! It looks just like I pictured (so far).
A huge shout out to the 3 beautiful girls who came and helped me out today. They worked so hard I bought them lunch and a frosty. They were so happy. I can show you a picture of the closet. I am still working hard on it but, it is coming along nicely. 🙂
I don’t know why I thought teachers actually had the summer off. Maybe next year when my routine and decorations are more established.
Now, I want to start designing my own lesson plans, hand outs etc…and put them on teachers pay teachers. See, I will probably never be done.
