Oh my word -- it has been forever. Emily and I are starting to loop this year so we are getting excited and ready for a whole new world of teaching...or different grades. Emily will loop up to second and I will be in first grade. I am BEYOND excited. I have never taught first and am excited for the lovable little munchkins! I have been doing a lot of first grade blog reading this summer and can't tell you how appreciative I am for you all! You are lifesavers. I am filling up my TPT cart with lots of stuff right now to help make the year go smoothly.
One of our goals this year is to post more .... seeing as it has been almost a year, I am hoping we are off to a better start already. :)
I started to organize my classroom and get it shape for the year. I will post a picture of an easy and inexpensive way to brighten up your room (I will post once it is completely done -- hopefully tomorrow!). I am using fun ribbon on my wall as stripes! I attach a cute little bow to it and it has added a lot of "fun!"Can't wait to finish it up.
I also bought a condo this summer and have been renovating. I will try to upload some before and after pictures so you can see the progress.
Until next time .... which will be a lot, lot sooner. Promise!
