I have 23 students and I am so excited slash nervous slash scared to death to get started! This is Calli and I putting the finishing touches on my room before Meet the Teacher Night.
Word Wall. Isn't it great!?
This is the board where I will display all of their fantastic work. The green board has the 6+1 Writing Traits. The shelves below are their backpack cubbies.These cute little tubs were at the Dollar Tree (LOVE that store). As the kids came in to the class for Meet the Teacher, I let them pick their own seat (but only for the first week of school!) then they put all their books inside their desks.
Student computers and a filing cabinent that is totally empty. If it wasn't for the other FABULOUS second grade teachers I would be totally lost. What exactly did ASU prepare me for?Standing in the front of my room! Do I look like a teacher yet?
Since we aren't supposed to do a materials list for the students, we do a wish list. We let the parents know what supplies we need for the classroom and if they choose to, they can grant one of my wishes (things like construction paper, expo markers, crayons, etc). At Fulton, we have a large community of wealthier families, but we also have a community of lower income. I was excited to see that all but two of my wishing stars were taken at Meet the Teacher!
So my classroom is ready, my lesson plans are written up, and I bought new clothes for school. As I write this, I am totally panick free...but we'll see what happens Monday morning!
