I am enjoying summertime. However, I am not sure they are really “lazy” days. My kiddos get up between 5/6 am still.
I guess I don’t have to go into work if I don’t want to and that is pretty cool. Except that I really miss “my” kiddos.
I have been into work a couple of times. I am anxious to set up my classroom. I think I will feel better when it is set up and ready for students. I have my copies made already. 🙂
I wanted to show you the state of my classroom when I shared with another teacher. What a mess!My side of the classroom is the 2 left and the middle top cupboard as well as the counter from the black phone to the left. Our storage closet is in the next picture. Mine is from about the middle to the left. the things on my floor (on my side) are the result of having to clear of the counter tops/floors/shelves in the classroom for the summer.
The bottom picture is the last week of school. Pardon my pile of papers, they were the yearbooks the students were making.
The last photo is my half of the classroom cleaned out on the last day.
Finally, everything is removed and I have begun to hang bulletin boards.
The top picture is the beginning of my focus wall and calendar area. The bottom picture is the same thing just a different perspective.
I ended up sharing my classroom with a wonderful teacher. She really was great. It was hard finding a common ground at first. There were things I did to annoy her and vice a versa. I am excited to start planning my own class. I have decided to do a “chalkboard theme“. If you are able to enlarge the picture, you will be able to see the really cute polka dot border I have. 🙂 (My cute daughter Lydia was the photographer.)
Anyway, it was hard sharing a classroom but now that I shared, it will be hard doing it all on my own. There are definitely perks to having 2 of you using a room.
Right now, I am working on my lesson plans for the year. this is the first year I have been hired in the spring and I have all summer to prep and get ready for the school year. It is kinda nerve wracking.
Any advice on getting it all done?
