Setting it all up

I got into my classroom for the first time today.  Just getting there was a joy,... not!  I had to jump through all the bureaucratic hoops of a first year teacher, even though I was teaching last spring and did a lot of those things then.

Today I got my bulletin boards started, straightened out some stuff and a few other things.  I have never set up a first grade classroom.  I don't have all my stuff moved into my room... and I've never set up at room with a 7 and 6 year old "helping".  I felt like it took three times as long to do anything today.  I'm not going to go over board so I have place to put more stuff up as the year goes on, or that's what I'm telling myself anyway.

Have you started redesigning your rooms?  Do you create theme for your room or just do a hodgepodge of whatever?    I'll share more info about what I'm doing soon.


I'm backkkkk

Ok, I know I haven't posted on my blog in an eon.  And, I know that for the most part my most recent posts with links to my TPT store.  But, life has changed.  Blake is going into 2nd grade and Colby is going into 1st.  In March, I went back to work.  I taught 3rd grade for the rest of the school year.  And, on Aug. 18th have my first first day of school since 2005.  I'm going to be a first grade teacher this go round.

I'm excited to get back into the classroom.  To try out a new grade and the fun new adventures I will find.  So, I'm back to share my adventures as a Teacher Turned Mommy Turned Teacher again.  I hope you enjoy hearing about the things that happen in my classroom and of course with the boys.

Can't wait to hear from you all again.  (o:
