After starting my 6th year of teaching, I discovered that I'm TERRIBLE at the whole "First Day of School" thing (I know, 6 years is a long time to barely notice that the First Day is not my forte, but at least I figured it out on my own). I just assume that the majority of the kiddos know each other because they come from the same Kindergarten. I dread the "getting to know you activities" and I know that they are a must, but I kind of feel that some students may dread it as much as I do. I'm a weirdo. I really need to get it together and sooner than later would be great. Lol. Any ideas on how to make this better for next year would be amazing.
Moving on.... as I was
Here is a table that I dazzled up with contact paper. As you can see the table was an ugly one before the makeover. I dislike wood paneling; it reminds me of a basement. Thank goodness it no longer looks that way!
This is all I have to show for now. I hope you enjoyed your tiny glimpse inside my classroom. I will try to update with pictures of my current boards so you can see the theme throughout.
