Welcome Back!

Today was the first day of school for my sweet second grade babies! We had a wonderful day. We started the day by playing with play dough and getting to engage with our friends. We had so much to share that happened over the summer. We then dove right in to sorting school supplies and getting our lockers and desk ready. We have breakfast  I mean lunch at 10:25 this year so that makes the morning seem to go by fast. We read First Day Jitters and did a fun comprehension sheet to go with it. We took first day pictures with our creative back drop. My friend/teaching partner is the bomb and created a picture back drop. (See the picture below) I had a great first day! I am exhausted but I can't complain. I have a few challenges the year, but I think I am in for a really good year. I hope all my other teacher friends had a great day! I can't wait to hear stories :)

Check it out!

This is the first week back for teachers. We will get our sweet babies next week. I have been working hard this summer in my room and I can officially say "My classroom is complete!" My wonderful Daddy built my bookshelves for my classroom. He even picked out the beautiful colors. My sweet step-mom took me to Wal-Mart to grab a few things to make my classroom feel more homey. I am truly blessed with wonderful parents. I wanted to update my classroom pictures. Since my classroom is done, I am going to be spending this week working on orientation packets and goodies for my kiddos. Check out my classroom!

Check out my awesome bookshelves. Thank you to my teaching partner
(Jennifer) for adding the cute curtain to cover the shelves!

I am in love with the green! These are my math kit shelves and they
hold my math games/ stations
