We had kindergarten orientation Monday--9/14 kiddos came, and they seemed like sweeties. We read Pete the Cat and Brown Bear Brown Bear and played with a little playdough before their parents joined us to distribute supplies. I'm looking forward to the new, SMALL class and the new school year; although I'm going to miss spending all day with my own little nugget.
Here's how my room looks at this point (probably not all that different from my last post). I still have to print, laminate, and hang my Whole Brain Teaching rules, sayings, and super improvers wall as well as a few other items here and there. I think for some items (like the WBT rules, Give Me 5 poster, etc), I may introduce them to the kids before hanging them.
