Final Count Down

Only 3 days left!!!!  Tomorrow is a full day, Friday the kids leave at 11:30 and then we have our faculty luncheon, & Monday we check-out and leave!!!!!!  I have been super busy this week.  I haven't had any kids, but I have been trying to get rti binders settled at the elementary and middle school, move intervention things to their new room, and get 2nd grade things from their old room and into mine.  At least I don't have to move to a new room.  I took some before pictures today.  I hope to finish my room next week so that I can have a full week off to relax before summer school begins.  Hopefully I will get enough done to not have to do anything during July.
The red shelf will be my library.  I am thinking of painting the yellow walls a light grey.

I painted this wall red last year.  (And yes, that is chicken wire on the wall for a bulletin board.  It is going to be so stinkin cute!)  These nice computers will be going to the intervention lab.  :(
My teacher area.
Future home of my Promethean Board.  :)
Another view of front.
My first thing to get ready for next year! (I couldn't find my scissors to cut the border, they will show up tomorrow hopefully.)  I am really excited about doing the Daily 5 and CAFE next year!
I took all of these pictures with my phone.  I will take the after pictures next week with my camera.  I am so excited about getting my room ready.  This is one of my favorite parts of teaching.  I love for everything to be all clean and straight (for a few days anyway).

Did I mention that this is the smallest classroom I have ever taught in?  I am having trouble finding a way to fit in a meeting area, library, and 24+ desks.  I really wanted a loft, but it is not going to happen in this room.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to everyone! I have had a great day. After church, we went to visit my father-in-law at the hospital. My 11 year old asked my to drive to the top of the parking garage. I parked on the 1st floor without going up to the top. As I was getting out I heard him say, "When I come to visit you in my truck when you are old, I am going to park on the top.".  Life is never dull with 2 boys.  I am glad that God blessed me to be the  mother of 2 precious boys!

I thought I would share some pictures I took in Melissa's room Friday. They made the cutest Mother's Day gifts.

We have one more week of school left and I am counting down the days!  I can't wait to start getting my room ready for next year.

Sam Come Back uploaded to TPT

This has been a super busy week for me.  Tomorrow will be our last day of state testing.  Then I only have 6 days of school left!  Of course, then I will have one week off before I begin teaching summer school.  I have uploaded what I like to think of as my first real item to teachers pay teachers.  I made it for my bestie who teaches 1st grade.  You can view her brand new blog at Bloomin' in First.  I made this unit to accompany the 1st reading story in Scott Foresman Reading Street Grade 1.  Please let me know of any changes that need to be made.

You can grab this in my teacherspayteachers store here.

Have a great rest of the week!!!
