 I am setting up my 1st grade class with a ocean/beach theme.  Last night we brought in 5 more desks.  I am very excited and a little nervous!  Did you know that teachers get nervous too?  :)

 I am also setting up my room with an ocean/beach theme.  I went to the teacher store and bought new bulletin board borders and changed my bulletin boards.  I am trying to get my classroom library organized too.  I have lots of books in my classroom!  I love reading!  What's your favorite book?

I am setting up my classroom with a racing theme.  I had to order some new reading books because I have more second graders this year.  I am also planning all of the fun things will will do!  The first day of school is exciting and scary...it always turns out great, though.

Teacher in-service starts today Aug.25th.  I am decorating my room - patriotic theme.  I bought red with tiny white stars and blue with tiny white stars fabric from Jo-Ann's for my 7 bulletin boards in my class.  I enjoyed this site this summer and have borrowed a lot of great things to do with my class of 16.  Today I will be arranging the desks in "E" style.  This year I am doing the ABC trifold for Back to School night.  I will also borrowing ideas from Mrs. Bainbridge's Procedure book for my class.  I am also using Mrs. Vensko's and Mrs. Bainbridge's lesson plan template.  I am thankful for all the wonderful teachers who share their ideas in this group.  I have also borrowed plans and ideas for reading groups and writing workshops.  My message is getting longer and I better stop for now.

 I read many books  and articles this summer about teaching -- especially books and articles about teaching reading and writing.   I was a presenter/facilitator at 3 different conferences.  Conferences help teachers be even better teachers.  Did you know that teachers are always learning new things?  I am getting my lesson plans ready for next week.  I also bought some new clothes for school.   During the summer I stay up later than usual.  This week I have to change my bedtime back to my school night bedtime.

 I read lots of books this summer that I thought I might want to use this year with my 5th graders.  I attended some workshops to help me learn new ways of teaching.  I had a hard time NOT buying every cool thing I saw for my classroom!  I am also getting my own son ready for 1st grade.  He needs to learn his ID number so he can pay for his hot lunch.  More recently, I have spent a long time filing papers, unpacking boxes, moving furniture and putting my lesson plans together to get ready for the new year.

Before school started, I had to write my new 1st grade students' names on everything!!  I labeled their desks, cubbies, helper chart, mailboxes, lost tooth chart, birthday candles and lunch graph.  I hung up all my back to school bulletin boards and copied many, many papers.  I made new curtains for my windows and to cover my shelves and I got all my welcome back gift bags ready for the kiddos' desks.  We have been back to school for 3 and 1/2 days now and I have found several things I forgot to do already!  Enjoy your year!
 Sept. 2 (my birthday)
 I am packing my school supplies in my school bag and going to bed earlyer.
 I go to school all year long

All summer I have been rading and posting to Proteacher.net. I have read many professional books to help my 4th graders bcome better learners. Reading aloud to my students each day is a great part of my day so I have been looking for new books. I have read the Poppy and Ragweed series by Avi. . .I know the kids will enjoy these characters. I did spend many hours getting the classroom ready. Our school starts on September 2. Good luck and happy learning to all the kids in Mrs. G's class.
