First Day in the Classroom with the Kiddos Today

I know I have been MIA...but in my defense, I have been busily getting ready for the first day with my Gifted Education students. Well, at the least the first group anyway!

I had my 6th grade Gifted students today and we really got a ton of things done. wasn't their first day of school, it was just the first day that I could pull them out. We have a pull-out program in my district so I have my students from 8:00 am until 2:00 pm (well that is officially....most of the time I get them shortly after 7:30 and keep them until about 2:30). We just have so much to do and the time flies when you are having fun!

I'm sorry I don't have any photos today....I went off and forgot my was left sitting on my computer desk at home. I know....a whole lot of good that did me!!

Anyway....I just wanted to jump on here and let everyone know that I had a BLAST with my first group of students this I get a whole new group tomorrow....and they are 2nd grade....Oh What FUN!!!

Until next time!!

Monday Made It # 3

Well.....the last few days have gone by in a blur for me. Teachers in our district went back to work on August 1 and I spent all day on August 1 in meetings. August 2-4, I spent many hours getting my room ready for students......and it is still not finished. While the students came to school today for the first isn't really a problem that my room wasn't really ready. Because I teach Gifted/Talented, the first two weeks of school are spent in the Central Office working on schedules, testing and other paper work. But....we have to hit the ground running after that two I still have to put some hours in to have a ready-to-go classroom come August 20.

A few weeks my great joy....I found quite a few teacher blogs. One of these teacher blogs...Fourth Grade Frolics....has had this little linky party going on the entire summer...which I wish I had known about. However...I have now found for the third week in a row....I am linking up.

Because I spent so much time moving furniture and well as emptying the boxes (we have to pack EVERYTHING)...I didn't make a lot this week....but here is what I made.

Now before I get started....I will tell you the door came from.....where????  Pinterest of course!! I just used Photoshop and made my little signs. However....I didn't pin the I don't really know who to give credit if you know where I might have gotten this inspiration....please let me I can credit them.

Now....I also created the 'WELCOME' sign using my Photoshop program, too!

My second thing that I made is my JOB CHART. Every year I have had to write the jobs on the board for this and I decided this year there would be a permanent chart for all the jobs. This is not totally when it is completely done....I will post a photo.


OK...folks...the weather is getting a little dicey here right I will end this post. I will come back later and check out everyone else's posts that have linked up.

Until Next Time.....Happy Blogging!!
