And so it begins: New Year, New Classroom

On Thursday and Friday,  I did some back-to-school shopping to purchase some classroom essentials for the new year...

...which meant I spent the better part of the weekend obsessing about getting into my room.

Today was my special day.

It was a reunion akin to the final eight minutes of Wife Swap.

So here she is, ready for some good old fashioned TLC!

I was glad to see that it was thoroughly cleaned!


My paper from last year still looks good - less work for me!


Our primary classrooms each have a 'quiet room'.  I use mine for my library and a couple of computers.  Oh, and a place to put all my stuff over the summer!


My LOOT! Lots of great things to bring my room back to life.  I'm really excited about my new 
wind chimes! I think it will be a little less abrupt than my service bell!

How are YOUR classrooms coming along? I can't wait to hear all about it!

PS: I gave my {sweet and SMART} husband a little homework assignment yesterday: Make the sample for one of my back-to-school activities.  Hmm... I think we're in trouble.

    Haha...I think you are in trouble if interrupting a classmate is good listening. ;) Do you have a copy of that activity? I tried searching your blog - didn't know if you had posted it before. It's such a good idea to really help the kids understand what a good listener is.

  2. Awww, I'm excited to get into my room and get started as well! I love that everyone puts their hubbies to work for them! :)


  3. That activity is too cute! I think I'm going to steal the idea if you don't mind :)
    I'm new to blogging and am glad I found yours! Check mine out :)
