Almost There!!

Well, school starts on Monday, and today was my first official day of work. One of the kindergarten teachers had a little celebration for me when I clocked in this morning.

So far, the best part of the day was being able to make this happen:

This bulletin board will have pictures of the kids and the things that we do throughout the year! I hope it'll be an ever-evolving reminder of all of the fun memories we make this year!

Tomorrow afternoon is parent orientation so I am trying hard to make sure everything is set up and organized so I can make a good first impression! I know a lot of parents are uneasy with their children in a first-year-teacher's room, so I want to make sure that I show them I know what I am doing!

However, I am TERRIBLE at talking to big people! Getting up in front of 100 6 year olds is nothing, getting up in front of 18 or so adults makes me nauseated!

This is my word wall. It actually says "Wonderful Words" in a really cute way, but the glare on the camera makes it really difficult to show.

The room is still a little bare, but it's very clean and very neat. I HOPE to keep it that way, and if you know me well, you know this is going to be a challenge to say the least. I am hoping to cover bare spots with things the kids have done to really make it feel like it is theirs, too.

  1. Oh, this brings me back to setting up my first classroom. Such fond memories (because I've blocked out how anxious and worried I really was.) My idea was to try to make big splashes of colour - the bigger the better!
    Great job so far and I wish you the best of luck!
