1. My Brag Tags arrived!!
Brag Tags, and my students are so incredibly motivated by them! One of my boys has already reached the "Top of the Chart" position, and another boy randomly asked today, "What would happen if you were at the top and got to clip up again?" Did I mention these are second graders?!
2. We got some important routines established this week...
My new bunch is really getting settled in with these routines. Structure and predictability are GOLDEN!!!
3. I spent an hour and a half Thursday night peeling the laminating film off of over 40 pages that did not seal properly the first time. Grrrr.... Who has time for that?! Well, it seems that the second time is THE CHARM!! My newly-laminated number display is now hanging in the classroom (and doesn't look like it will begin peeling!).
4. We put some of the final touches on our School Year Time Capsules today!! I can't wait to get the photos mounted and have these babies sealed up until June! :) They are adorable!!
back at the end of May! Plus, all our living room furniture was sold prior to that in preparation! I. Can't. Wait. To have some place to totally VEG OUT!!
