It's that time of year again. I think my district must be starting later than usual because so many of the bloggers I follow have been back to work for a little while already. Teachers started last week, but today is the first official day with kids. It's fun to see faces I haven't seen in three months and daunting to see the amount of first grade names I need to learn!
My room is set up very similarly to how it has been the past few years. During my first work day, I spent an hour trying to re-arrange my tables to give my room a new look. Even though I played a ton of Tetris as a kid, I wasn't able to figure out a better way to set up my tables. I've put up a few pictures of how my room looks, if for no other reason than to remember how shiny they floors are right now.
I've got a lot of cool things planned for this year. I'll be doing a bunch of new projects and I will have another student teacher as well. As I did last year, I will be posting my lessons plans for other teachers to use. Good luck to everyone in the new school year!
