Yikes! I forgot just how much time and effort went into getting a school year started! Arranging the classroom, setting up my own space, bulletin boards, planning, copying, and that's just to get started!
Well the 2011 - 2012 school year has begun, and even though it got off to a rocky start, we made it through the first week. The earthquake during preservice week and the hurricane over the weekend made thing interesting, but we met the school year head-on and with gusto. We are settling into a routine and started switching for math classes the second day of school. Students were excited to set up their binders and didn't even seem to mind homework.
Once I get my head screwed on straight and make it through Back-to-School Night on Wednesday, I will post some classroom pictures and some freebies.
