I went into school today, which is nothing new, I've been in there a few times the last few weeks. We have about two weeks before we start and I'd rather mosey in later in the day and enjoy that "getting ready time," rather than be running around when we have meetings and other things going on. My classroom is almost set, despite a few planning things and writing names on things.
The best part of my day was meeting a colleague that works in a school across the county. She wanted to see how I did centers in my math class. I was excited to share, but it was also exciting to get her great ideas as well. As a teacher I wish we had more time to do this, I guess that is what blogs are for!
Anyway, I wanted to share some of the things that I did today:
This is a chair that I had from a previous year but it was all ripped up. I recovered it, I am pretty proud of it!
These came from Target. One of the blogs I had read (if it's you take credit) went shopping at Target in the $1 section. I usually don't think about Target in my school shopping, but this was a great find. The buckets were $1 each and the stickers were a $1. Total cost of this adorable little holders $3!
Here are my clothes pins. I use these clips for attendance, and drawing names for different things. I still have to write their names on them, but this year I added a fun pom-pom!
Hope everyone is enjoying those moments in their classroom before the students get there!
