I hope that I have enough energy to keep up with the best activities and lessons for my kids. Fourth grade is new to my school (and last year when I taught third grade it was new as well) so it's a lot of work to do a new set curriculum. The one thing that I am very happy about is looping up with 3 of my kids - they have been so warm and friendly with my 3 new students, and it's so nice for them to already know my expectations and know my routines/rules. I am very proud of them and happy I can help them one more year!!Sunny Days Early Finishers in this bin, and will continue to put her different activities in there throughout the year! A must buy :)
Here are our classroom rules :) We wrote them down on chart paper and came up with our rules together so the students know we are building a classroom community, and having the rules more important to them since they created them. We signed the bottom agreeing to following these rules.
Our classroom schedule! I LOVE this freebie from The First Grade Parade :) These schedule cards are my favorite, I printed almost ALL of them, and will keep them for as long as they last!! Check out Cara's beautiful Schedule Cards!!!
Our first bulletin board is from Shelley Gray :) I bought this product on TPT, and will save it for next year as well since there are a few different templates to choose from. Check it out here!
I just wanted to say that I am so proud of my friend, Mrs. Leander for reaching 1,000 followers. I am absolutely not surprised since she is so wonderful, but props to her !!!
