Check out how my classroom currently looks....just now waiting for the computer lab to take over the front portion of my room.
Now onto the decorating. I have created some great new numbers with number words and months of the year for my wall. I need some jazzing up of my walls. I haven't decided what to do on my hallway bulletin board yet. I'm waiting for some inspiration this coming week during inservice.
I have been reviewing the common core standards over the summer and this morning came across some fantastic videos from the Teachers College produced by Lucy Calkins and based on her book the Pathways To The Common Core. The videos are very well done. They all start with a great overview of what you'll see. I will be referring back to them throughout the year I'm sure. Check them out if you are struggling with how to incorporate the CC Standards in your work with young children.
This summer has been a time of transformation in my yard. I took my pool out of my yard and replaced it with a beautiful patio. I love love love it.
Here's to another great year!
