New Classroom!!!!

Can you tell I'm super excited? I've been teaching in a teeny tiny room for the last three years. My room was originally built as a "Resource Room" and the only good thing I can say about it was the office had plenty of storage, but the actual room was the size of a closet. Out in blogland, I'm always surprised when I see pictures of other teachers' rooms and they call their rooms tiny. I would happily trade them for their "tiny" rooms.

This past year, I was lucky enough to utilize the resource room across the hall for literacy and free centers. The two rooms together actually equal the size of a normal classroom. Though it was much better, it is nice to finally graduate to a full size classroom, and have all my stuff in one space.

Last week, I set about the task of moving. I can't believe I had so much stuff. I'm super excited about my new LARGE classroom and the fact that I get to share an office with my teaching buddy! We taught across the hall from each other for two years before she moved into a large room last year.

So this week, pray for me. I'm going in...

My task is to get everything in its place before kindergarten screenings on August 9th and 10th. Sounds doable, right? Except I have a workshop on the 7th and 8th. I better get busy!!!

Good Luck. I had to do the same thing a couple of years ago, but it was well worth moving everything to have the nice bigger room.

Wahoo for a bigger room! My room looks about like that right now and I didn't move rooms. Lol! =)

I am happy to be your newest follower. I would love for you to hop over and visit me when you get the chance. =)

Music, but most importantly music by Mr. Al. Some of my friends and I were lucky enough to attend a Mr. Al conference earlier this year. I just love his music, enthusiasm, and creativity. Some of our favorites include Please Stand Up, Funky Backwards Alphabet, and Rockin' the Alphabet.


Expo dry erase markers...the big pack with all the colors. Having all the colors available is handy when drawing pictures on the whiteboard.

I also really love TUL low odor dry erase markers. They are magnetic on one side and stay attached to the whiteboard. I find these markers at my local Office Max. I can not find these exact markers on their website, unfortunately.

Linking Up: Top 5 Teacher Must Haves

Today, I'm linking up with Life is Sweet for: #1
Teaching Easel
I have the Royal Reading & Writing Center from Really Good Stuff in my classroom. This thing has it all: magnetic dry erase board, storage tubs, pencil/marker storage, removable dry erase board with lines, and big book storage in the middle. I love it because it is on wheels, can be placed where I need it, and moved out of the way when I don't.

Elapsed Time Timer
I love this timer and so do my students. They are able to tell how much time is left with a quick glance. I prop it on my chalk tray, but it has a stand and a hanger on the back. One more thing I love about it, it doesn't scare the mess out of us when it goes off. It's loud enough for the kids to hear without being frightening.

Scotch Laminator
Now that I have a personal laminator, I wonder how I ever survived without it? If you don't have one, you should get one. You can thank me later. ;)

VistaPrint (A Year Later)

Linking up with Ms. Bainbridge's VistaPrint Fever linky party. I'm back! Wow, I feel rested after a year long vacation! Technically not quite a year, but who is counting? My summer is coming to a close, and I'm trying not to count how many days left I have of sleeping in until ten...I mean waking up at seven (Wink, Wink). In honor of my first post back and my last post before I dropped off the blogosphere, I find it only fitting to have another VistaPrint update. Here's what I ordered for the upcoming school year. I'm making a change from pirates to owls as you'll see evidenced below: Labels (no explanation needed) Does anyone else get a nervous tic when all their envelopes don't come back signed the next day. Nah, that's probably just me. Small rubber stamp Large rubber stamp for make-up work Small Car Magnet I will place the child's name at the bottom on his/her birthday.
