With all of the excitement of moving into my classroom today I completely forgot that it was August 1st! So, I’m back for a second blog post today to link up with Farley from [Oh Boy 4th Grade] for her August Currently linky party.
Listening: I’m so bad about needing background noise… I always have the TV or music playing in the background. Must be why I do so well in 1st grade! haha! Right now it’s The Real Housewives of OC. Nothing like some mindless reality TV, right?
Loving: I am so in love with my new school! We had a new teacher meet and greet this morning and then I was able to move into my classroom. It feels good to have all my teacher stuff cleaned out of the house. I was able to get all of the furniture exactly how I want it today and all of the old decorations taken down. Stay tuned for pictures of before and after! My new classroom used to be a 3rd grade room so there’s a ton of 3rd grade curriculum stuff in there as of now, but hopefully that will move to it’s new home soon!
Thinking: Ideas for decorating and organizing my classroom are flying through my head! I literally just sat down on the carpet, ya know… 1st grade style, for a bit today just to look around and think about what I want to change/add/get rid of. I ended up with a super long list of ideas. The hard part will be prioritizing them!
Wanting: PIZZA! Ah, I know that it’s bad for me, and I’ll probably end up at the pool tomorrow. But, I just can’t resist it right now! I feel like I deserve it after a long day in the classroom, right? I’m also really wanting a cute outfit for the 1st day & meet the teacher night. The darn cleaners lost my favorite blue pants, so those need to be replaced ASAP!
Needing: I “want” a ton right now, but don’t really “need” anything. I’m feeling pretty content with my life right now :).
1st Day: That’s pretty self-explanatory :). I’ve got a week to get my classroom up to par before we hit content PDs hard on the 11th. Time to work!
