First Week Craziness

My classroom is pretty much ready, but I keep forgetting to take pictures of the full room! I promise to be back later this week to share those!

However, I do want to share some things I've been up to this past week!


Our school is doing a camping theme this year and so I made little build your own s'more treats! 

You can download your copy by clicking the image below!


I also did a teacher wishlist with magnets on the white board. I was so excited that almost all of them were taken!

I do this at the beginning of every year and I seriously love the instant, easy feedback! No shuffling through 20 different student surveys! It's all on one nice sheet! I like to leave them hanging up for the first couple of weeks.

This is an adapation of my About Me snapshots that I did last year...


which you can read about HERE. I'll be back to share how I adapted it with pictures of the final product later this week! =)

If you guys haven't purchased Lindsey's Be a Reading Expert, you should! My kids loved it and it was such a great way to introduce reading to my third graders! 

I must say this week was utterly exhausting! I felt like I had no clue what was going on the first day because I was new to the school! The rest of the week went great. I have a fabulous morning class, but my afternoon class needs a lot more structure and work on following expectations. I have no doubt that they will get it together within a couple of weeks! I am excited for the changes this year brings! 

I'll be back soon....hopefully....with my FULL classroom reveal!!

Happy Sunday!

  3. Thanks for the free S'more printable. I used it this year, and my 5th & 6th graders loved it! I posted a link to your site in my post http://ourlittlefamily-miller.blogspot.com/2015/08/classroom-reveal.html.
