Here we go!

Today is my first official day of the 2010-2011 school year. I worked in my room yesterday and it is 95% ready and really looks good! I'll get pictures today and post later.

Tomorrow is our meet and greet with parents and students. I look forward to this every year. I love meeting these kids for the very first time. I always give them a bag of popcorn with a note that says "Thanks for popping in to meet me." 


I am ready!

Good luck! I love Back to School night, too. It's great to meet everyone and I feel excited to begin. I loved the idea about the popcorn- I think I'll steal it. :-)

Glad you're ready for the big day…I'm not quite there yet. I also leave all of the desks stacked in the corner of the room so that the kids can put together the classroom. I feel that this gives them a sense of ownership in the year and it becomes 'our' classroom instead of simply mine.

Good luck!

Your room looks beautiful. It's the kind of place kids love. You're awesome, Joan!
