I Guess I'm Ready...

Ready or not, they'll be here Wednesday morning! 

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.

Welcome to my room! The fun whiteboard on the left is from Target. I think I'm going to make that my "we are..." message board.
There's not much different from last year. I guess I liked how I had things set up for the most part. A few pieces of furniture moved--most notably, I can have a U of desks this year--and I got rid of a huge filing cabinet that I no longer wanted.



Love your title {I Guess I'm Ready}LOL! I start next Wednesday too...did we have summer already???
