Students return in 3.5 weeks:
|I don't usually look like such a scrub at work, I swear...|
This was a casual Friday during my student teaching!
Teachers return in.... well anytime, depending on if we want to spend the entire month of August decorating our classroom or not...
I thought I'd kick start the whole classroom set up process from the comfort of my own home.
On my laptop.
On my couch.
Doing what I do best.
Here are just a couple items I ordered today:
1. ) Personalized "Mrs. Lindsay" pencils. I have no problem sharing pencils with my students. In fact, I want them to use every single pencil I ever bring in to the classroom. But, I also want them to return the pencils at the end of class so I can sharpen them and put them out for the next day. Hopefully, by personalizing the pencils, this should help.
|Pencils: $18 for 72 at Oriental Trading Co.|
2.) Personalized "Welcome to Mrs. Lindsay's Classroom" sign. This decal is made to be stuck to the floor, but I will be putting it on the door of my classroom instead. It's too nice looking to get stepped on!
|Welcome sign, $16 at Oriental Trading Co.|
I think the owls are cute.
I hope my fourth graders don't think they're too baby-ish!
3.) All-Purpose Teacher's Organizer
This looks like a perfect way to organize the papers and assignments for each day.
I didn't purchase this one, but am planning on making it myself possibly..
Now, to figure out how to do more classroom set up from the comfort of my couch....
