Something happened to my blogging during August.
Here's the main reason - we moved to a new school, with construction crews still making final touches as we teachers were setting up classrooms. Here's what my room looked like when I first entered...the with both the ceiling and flooring still needing finishing touches by the construction crew:
This room has gone through quite a transformation. It is absolutely, hands-down, the best early childhood classroom I have ever had.
|We will not be squished at gathering.|
|You can't see it, but there's a sink in the art area!|
|Plenty of room for blocks and building.|
|Science and discovery in natural light!|
|Behind that door is our classroom bathroom - yes!|
I am delighted with its charm...not just a typical rectangle classroom, but one with special nooks and angles and other features, allowing me to set up centers and spaces in fun, new ways.
|There is so much fun reading ahead!|
The children came through for "Meet Your Teacher" day this past week, while we were still in the midst of setting up the room. When I got home, I said to my husband - "Oh, you should have seen these kids! They are the most adorable children!" He said I say this every year.
|My dining room table today - creating photo cards of all the children,|
so that they will feel at home in their new space.
Tomorrow is the first day of school!
