Loving: I enjoyed seeing several former students who were either in the parade or sitting near me. Seeing them, makes me all the more excited to start the new school year.
Thinking: I don't want to say how many hours it took me to hang all of my bulletin boards. It's embarrassing. I partly blame my OCDish tendencies on mundane matters, like borders looking just right. I could have used an extra set of hands or two.
|Here is a peek at several different boards. After all that hard work, I'm not sure I want to cover them. Thanks to Tara @ 4th Grade Frolics for the inspiration! :)|
Needing: I need to get a plan of attack for the first weeks of school. Now that it's August, I need to kick things up a notch.
Back To School Must-Haves:
1. Sharpie Pens--I love how they make my signature look!
2. Lots of children's books. My classroom library is currently overflowing!
3. I'm switching things up and utilizing Jivey's mentor sentences this year. If you haven't heard of them, you can check them out here!
