Now a confession...I was multi-tasking during the meetings...it's kind of my thing. I was actually helping my 2nd grade teacher friend create her own blog. She's brand new to blogging but has a ton of cool ideas too...give her a few weeks to get herself up and running officially but you'll definitely want to give her a peek! Here's where you can find her: Sumner's Crows Nest.
After our meetings I ran over to school to check in on my branches and I had four that were dry and ready to paint! Here's an updated picture of two of them:
I also got all of my books organized and on my shelves...whew! It was really hard to separate the books I use or might use from those that I probably haven't or won't used (if that makes sense) but I am bringing home three boxes of books to thoroughly sort = PROGRESS!
|Of course I'm missing one of those little pieces that hold up the shelves! :( |
It has to be somewhere!
I found the idea of using caution tape from one of my new blogger friends so I can't take full credit for the idea!
I'm working on little signs that reference each of my students. For example, a sign that says "Leanne's Great Ideas Coming Soon" to give it a little more personality.
I have so much to do but I let myself do a little blog stalking tonight and saw that the girls over at First Grade Fanatics are hosting a Back-to-School giveaway! Make sure you visit their site so that you can join in on the fun! They have some awesome goodies!
Well, that's it for tonight! My technology teacher (and very good friend), Mrs. Kania and I are presenting at Allegheny-Clarion Valley School District on Friday! We need to put the finishing touches on our presentation tonight so that we have time to add those last minute ideas that always come to us when we think we're all done and ready to go. This is our second year presenting at ACVSD and we are so excited! Oh! By the way...one of the teachers, Marcy started her own blog too! Check her out at SUNdling's BRIGHT Ideas!
Tomorrow's Goal: Wake up early, be productive so I can have a little pool time in the afternoon! :) 19 Days!!!!
