I am such a horrible blog updater because I haven't even taken pictures of my classroom yet! My mother is getting very frustrated I do believe. I told her I'd do it this morning and well, before I could get them taken the bell rang. So, I'm going to try tomorrow morning. The school has ordered me more stuff for my classroom so it's still a work in progress. This week has been a "getting to know you" week, trying to get to know my students and what level they are all on. Next week we will hopefully be on a more consistent routine :)
Mom did come up on Saturday to bring me some "teacher" things she had bought last week. I was pretty much freaking out about starting school with absolutely nothing and as usual, Cathy to the rescue! We went to the school to drop off the goodies and she snapped this picture of me in my classroom, well before being finished. The past two days she's been browsing the internet for teaching tools and has spent the past two days printing and cutting sight word cards for my students...they should love her, I do!
My first day with students was pretty nervewracking, but I survived! These pretty smell goods from the farmer probably helped boost my confidence a little :) They make my messy desk (yes, hard to believe my desk is messy b/c I'm an organization freeeeeak!) look a little more cheerful.
Oh, and the painters are starting at the house tomorrow! Tomorrow they will be puttying, cleaning, etc. and getting the walls ready for paint and I will meet with them tomorrow afterschool to go over colors. Ahh, I'm so anxious! Can't wait to see what Ruskin Room Green, Superior Bronze, and Whole Wheat look like on the walls :) The names just sound so yummy!
This weekend is the big Texas A&M/Arkansas football game at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. I'm praying for an Aggie win. Also praying for rain tomorrow and Friday so the farmer can use his ticket to the game instead of cutting rice. And can't wait to see Kim and Em :)
Beat the Hell Outta Arkansas!
