Welcome to Our Classroom

Here it is, squeaky clean and looking amazing!!  A HUGE thank you to the custodians who work through the HOT summer months getting our rooms ready.  I didn't even have to ask once if the wax was dry or if my room was ready.  They worked fast this summer.

Here are some pictures of our space and how I've set it up.

Outside Bulletin Board 

YES, I have a disco ball so we can have our 30 second dance parties!
We'll build our writing bulletin board together.
We'll begin with apples and take a trip to the apple orchard.
New comfy seat from Walmart.

So, I have debated and gone back and forth on how to place the shelf above in my room.  I've always had it out from the wall to create a reading nook.  I like it against the board because it opens up my classroom but I'm not sure HOW much I like it.  Plus, it REALLY needs to meet up with a spray can for an update!

I can't wait to meet each of you when you come in for the Observation Survey!

I hope all of you are enjoying your summer and playing out in the sun!!  I wanted to add our supply list just in case it has been misplaced.

Postcards should be arriving to you soon letting you know the day and time of your child's Observation Survey.

I can't wait to meet you!  See you soon.

A Walk Down Memory Lane

Do you remember what your child looked like on the first day of FIRST grade?

I thought it would be fun to show their growth from the beginning of the year to the end.  Look at those baby faces and how much they have grown!!

Thank you for sharing your child with me this year.  I hope your child leaves first grade remembering all of the FUN he/she had and all the learning we did.

Newsletter for the Week of June 6th

Here's our last newsletter.  Remember Friday is a half day and dismissal will begin at 11:00.

Patiently Waiting...

Tuesday was Day 21 for our chicks and we patiently waited for the first peck.  We even wore chick hats and watched!!

Of course this year it didn't work as planned and the chicks hatched at night and in the early morning so students didn't get to see the full process.

I'm okay if you even say that my ed tech and I look like first graders too.  That would be quite the compliment.  I mean, can you spot us?

We have 5 lively, little, ADORABLE chicks!!


One girl ran up to me and told me I had to look at a chick.  I wasn't expecting to see anything unusual but then this happened!!  Of course my heart dropped and I thought the worse but he was just relaxing.  This is really how our little chick was sleeping.

We've spent a lot of time just looking at them but today they were out and about!

More pictures to come...
