Well, it's that time again!
If you have been to any grocery store lately you know that school is about to start back! Notebooks, pens, pencils and folders in every color line the aisles beckoning me to pick them up! Is this every teacher's feelings or just mine?
As I mentioned earlier I am moving school districts and will be starting this year at a new school in a new city! After I returned from the Philippines I moved into a house with a great friend and jumped right into classroom mode. It was a major ordeal moving all of my school stuff into a new school but it is slowly coming together. I have spent the last two weeks getting a new room ready and organized and this week I am going through New Teacher Orientation Week since I am in a new district.
But anyway, I always love getting my classroom ready and this year I have a new theme! I LOVED my Hollywood theme but like I said I changed schools and found that someone already had the same theme. So I didn't have to change but my motors started turning and with the help of a few friends I decided to create a circus theme, so this year my class will be:
Miss A's Acrobats!
Here is a small preview of the circus act going on in my room right now!
I moved everything in at the end of May (with the help of the parentals, and literally dropped everything in one spot. So I walked into a room looking like this, only the empty space was filled with desks, chairs and tables.
These are going to be my new Birthday display. I saw the idea on Pinterest and thought that I would try it out. I found these cute bags at Michaels on sale!! I made the month signs and glued them on and will add tissue paper later.
I bought Thistlegirl designs adorable circus clipart and used them to model my posters that will hang around the room. There will soon be a lion, elephant, and seal to join the kiddos.
I am going to keep my popcorn word wall but added a focus board! I'm going to call it "The Main Attraction"! I used painters tape to divide the board and will post standards and anchor charts here! (Ignore the desks note, that is for maintenance)
That was just a small tour of what's going on. I'm waiting on the color printer to work so I can print some great things I found this summer that I want to post! Check back soon for more!
Well I'm off to more Teacher Orientation sessions!
