Classroom Tour

Here are some pictures of my classroom. Ignore the mess. I just consider that a sign that learning is taking place.

This is my letter wall. I got the idea from Kinder-Craze. It has brought a lot of life to my cabinets too! 

Shapes, Books, and Computers

My birthday wall.

Cabinets before the letters

The front of my room. 

Behavior chart.

I just realized that I didn't take any of the other side of my room, so those will be coming soon! 

Hope everyone is having a great week! This is our Community Helpers week, so we are having lots of fun!

A Horrible Blogger - That's Me!

Wow! It's October 1st and I can't tell you the last time I blogged! I kept thinking that I would write and well, it just didn't happen.

I've been asked 100's of times how I like Kindergarten. Well, I like it. I really do, but I'm exhausted! I know it's going to get better! I am surviving to say the least :)

Last week, we did lots of apple activities for Johnny Appleseed day! We even baked an apple pie. I used my grandmother's recipe and it turned out great! 

I was out one day last week, and one of my little boys decided to color all over the floor. Let's just say he got to clean it up with a magic eraser the next day :)

We made these apples and they make our room so bright and fun! We colored coffee filters, sprayed a little water on them to spread the color, and let them dry. I then used the die cut machine to cut out the apples! 

I hope everyone has been doing great! My goal (and I'm going to reach it) is to write twice a week!

Okay, so I'm obviously an awful blogger when school starts back up. I haven't been at school due to training since last Thursday. I miss my babies! I won't be back until this Friday. I think I might cry before then....mainly because I miss them, but some because the workshops are so boring!

I am overwhelmed. I'm ready for a sense of normalcy. Does that ever come? Maybe! Soon, I hope!

Here is a sneak peak into my room. One day, I'm going to do a tour! It will probably be next week since I am only there one day this week! 

Hope everyone is having a great week!!!

2 weeks!

Can't believe we've been in school two whole weeks! But then again, I can! My kids are wonderful (hopefully we all think that)! Of course, there is always one or two that like to push our buttons, but I still love them!

Last week, we focused on our names. We made name trains, name rockets, practiced writing our names, etc. etc.

This week, are focusing on Chicka Chika Boom-Boom! It is one of my favorite books! I will be sure to take pictures of what we've done/will be doing so my posts aren't so boring :) 

Hope you had a great llooonnnggg weekend!

Five For Friday Linky

Tonight, I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs for Five For Friday.

1. I always forget how tiring the first week of school is. I was in bed by 9:30 every night (except one) this week and up at 5:50, but I am ready to sleep late in the morning!

2. Monday night, my ring finger started itching and then swelled about three times it's normal size. I got my engagement ring off but couldn't get my wedding band off. It is still swollen a little bit, but I was finally able to get my ring off yesterday. We think I was bitten by something, but have no idea what. All I could think about was that I couldn't miss any school :)

3. I have a good class! I have 9 girls and 7 boys. I do have my "rounders" but nothing out of the normal.

4. The jump from 3rd to Kindergarten is HUGE. I knew it was, but reality set in this week :) 

5. I left today without planning for next week (gasp), but my brain was so tired that I probably wouldn't have been that productive. So, I will be back tomorrow or Sunday. 

Hope everyone had a great week and gets some rest this weekend!

The First Day

Whew! What a day! But a good day! Only 1/2 of my class was there today, and the other 1/2 will be tomorrow. It's still soooo tiring though! I forgot how bad my body ached after being on my feet all day. I forgot how tiring is to repeat myself 1000000 times. Okay, not that many, but you get the point :)

I tried writing earlier, and I was so exhausted I couldn't think. After a nap and supper, I am feeling a little better. Hope everyone had a great day (first day or school or not)!

Maybe I'll have something more interesting to share later this week :)
