So life has been pretty hectic the past few weeks. I have one last final week of summer break before going back for a 3 week “boot camp.” I’m not going to complain though, because one of those “boot camp” days includes a special speaker - - the one and only RON CLARK!!!!!! (I CAN’T WAIT!!!)
Anywhoos, I have spent many hours in my classroom already, but feel like I have SO much more to do! A little bit of background on my school: it’s a charter school in
. There is already one campus (K-12) on the west side of town and they are opening up a new campus (K-6) on the east side. I was lucky enough to be able to go to the new campus. I can’t wait until all of the kiddos arrive on September 6th! Cincinnati
On Tuesday this past week, I decided in the afternoon to head out to get some things done in my room since the hubby got home from work early. BAD IDEA! I should have just stayed home because not even 5 minutes away from my house, this happened:
I know, right!? And I had JUSt gotten these tires last September for my birthday too!

This is what my classroom looked like the very first time that I saw it - completely blank!
After a few hours here and there, this is what I have so far:
I found these “Bucket Filling Essentials” that Hope over at 2nd Grade Shenanigans created from Ron Clark’s Essential 55. LOVE!
I can’t take the credit for this behavior chart. I about fell out of my seat when I saw this posted here on Queen of the First Grade Jungle. I just knew that I had to use this for my room!
