It's OFFICIAL I am a First Grade Teacher!!!
Last night I went out to dinner with some teacher friends. I thought I was only meeting up with two of them, but my friend Christy surprised me and invited the crew. It was so nice to celebrate with them. It was also absolutely nerve-wracking waiting to here if I got approved by the board.
As you know I got hired and sure enough I was at the school at 7:00 am this morning and left at about 7:30 pm. I am excited to say that my room is finished other than a few odds and ends (organizing). I am only lucky girl because I had lots of help today, without Christy, Lori, Angie, and Abby I probably would still be there in a mess of clutter. Thanks girls.
Here's the reveal.....hope you approve.
|I turned my desk into a Jeep. I'm super excited about how it turned out. I put a long table off the side to use for guided reading.|
|Looking through the door....|
I have twenty students so I decided to organize the desk into four groups of five. I have a ton of space.
This will also be used for the Daily Five
|Morning Meeting Calendar----work in progress|
|The kids will use clothespins labeled with their number to choose what they want for lunch.|
|I've seen this all over Pinterest and in many classrooms, so I had to add it to mine.|
|Each week I will have a King or Queen of the Jungle----the sign flips over for an easy switch. |
The baskets below will be used to turn in homework and papers.
|Yay, A special birthday desk. The balloons on the door will eventually have the kiddos birthday listed.|
|My little reading area is a work in progress. I need to get a small rug and organize all of the books. |
Don't pay attention to that hideous green cart----it will be getting a makeover this weekend.
|My Behavior Clip Chart|
---- can be found at my TpT store.
|This is going to be my listening area. The coolest part is that the headphone are animal print.|
|This is the writing area which will be used for the Daily Five.|
It also is a work in progress that needs more supplies.
|Student Jobs aka Jungle Tours|
The luggage tags with their number will be added tomorrow.
|A mess of a mess of math materials.....needs organized ASAP|
Well after I buy some new baskets
After a little over 12 hours working in the room I can say that I am completely exhausted, but so pleased with the results. Now I'm off to bed to get some much need sleep so I'm ready for my 7:00 am training.
