A few last minute touches. I'd love to say I'm ready for our first inservice day Wednesday, but sadly, I'm not. There are still several things that need to be done, but nothing major. So I'm almost there. Enough rambling though. Here's today's update!
Accomplished: Snagging this **adorable** desk! Is this not the cutest thing EVER???
This belonged to my friend across the hall. She used it as her desk last year, but got a beautiful L-shaped desk this year, so I took this off her hands! She painted the drawers...aren't they cute?? I'm using it as a writing center for one student. Haven't decided how I'm going to decide which student goes each center rotation yet, but I'm going to make it work! The desk is just too cute not to be used, right??
***Please note that the top of the desk will soon be covered with pretty containers for pencils and other writer's tools. And maybe a cozy lamp??
Accomplished: Reader's Workshop Charts
I found these charts somewhere online, but can't remember where??
Accomplished: Another entire corner...for those of you keeping up, this means the ENTIRE back of the room is complete!
Accomplished: My "How to find 'Just Right' Books" Chart
I found this on an old computer, so I have no idea where the idea for the chart originally came from, but I thought it was great! It's in my meeting area, which also doubles as my buddy reading center during center rotations.
Accomplished: Added names to my bees. The font is Doodle Tipsy for anybody wondering. One of my favs!
Accomplished: Outside Student Work Display
A week from tonight I'll be preparing for the first day of school. Bittersweet. It's been a good summer but I'm ready to meet my little boys and girls! :)
