Got a lot accomplished today with Jeff and Lacie's help. I am now totally moved out of my old classrom (bittersweet). My curtains are hung. My computers are all in one place. I have seven (I think) completed crate seats in their spots. Some desks are moved in. All the trash has been put in the dumpster. Things are shaping up. I took a few photos of the hard-working crew today. Notice how hard they're working? They really did work hard. They're exhausted.
The computer center. Notice my lovely curtains?
I decided to give myself a little "street cred" this year. I hauled in the diplomas from home and hung them on the new "closet" wall. This wall just needed something. I think they look nice. :-)
Lacie is working on removing an old number line sticker from the desktop. I really think she just wanted an excuse to sit down for a minute.
Jeffrey is taking an OSHA break. He stated they were clearly defined in his contract and I must comply with regulations by allowing breaks. Seriously?
The "counting bug" hunt is on. I had been thinking I would used these counting bugs (from my FIRST year of teaching Kindergarten) in my room this year since I'm math-focused. I finally found where I put them in storage and guess what? You guessed it.....I only have up to 17. Now, I can't find them in-stock on any website. Sooo, if you have had these in the past....I'm in the market. :-)
