Stick a fork in me...I am done, maybe...

Am I done?  Is a teacher ever really done?  NOPE!  My room is complete for the most part.  Now it's lesson planning and getting things ready time.







 And there you go...that is my classroom in a few pics.  Teachers start back tomorrow and we have 7 days of inservice/training.  Our kiddos start the 27th.  I am excited and nervous to go back, but it is going to be a great year!

Classroom Day 1

So I have been to my room one day and I got quite a bit done.  Yayyy!  There is still a LONG way to go.  Thanks to my super husband for moving my furniture for me and my sweet little girl for keeping herself occupied while mommy worked.  Good thing I have tons to keep her occupied -kindergarten is full of games, toys, and fun things to play with. 
View of part of my room. - listening, writing center, and a giant chalk board that will somehow become a display of student work and display words for the writing center.

View of large group meeting area and computers to the left.  My Promethean board is front and center.

Small group table.  Still need to put up reading strategies in the back.  Shelf to the right will house my supplies, papers for the week, and the student's book boxes.

View from the door of the student tables.

Math tub location with reading center to the right and my daughter in the corner.

writing table

This is where my word wall will go.  Just needs some border and the alphabet.
So, that's my room so far.  I'll head back next week after a trip to the teacher store for border and wal-mart for some other goodies.

Check out my new cart

 
It was just delivered today.  I am so excited to use it in my classroom to house and organize my small group supplies.  Speaking of classroom I get to get in on Thursday.  I am so looking forward to it...but not because this time around I can't move the furniture (did I mention I was 15 wks prego) so now I have to have a clear plan of where I want everything to go or else my hubby will be moving things around all day, like I normally do.  
I haven't done much school related other than make a long list of all the things I need to get done.  
Stay tuned!

Been missing much

Ok, ok, so it has been a LONG time since I have visited the blogging world.  This past year I started at a new school and let's just say it was like my first year teaching all over again.  So many things to make, so many new things to learn.  Things have finally calmed down a bit since summer started.  Well, ok not really...I have been running around after my 2 1/2 year old. 

So, I finally decided after a little pinteresting, blog stalking, and TPT viewing that I would get back into blogging.  So here I am!!!

I think it is finally time to face the facts...school will be starting sooner than I would like and maybe it's time to get some things done.  Oh, did I also mention that my laptop crashed...I got that back finally too!

Let the adventures begin...more to come with activities, pictures, and adventures.

Where have I been?

At school!!!   That's where I have been.  Busy, busy, busy...parent conferences, math tubs, daily 5, reading, writing...all the while being a mom and a wife.  Wheww....it's exhausting.

and I just found out yesterday that a flash drive full of teacher stuff now doesn't work.  :(  Looks like I'll be backing up files left and right now.
