Countdown

So…much…paperwork.

I stopped by the district office yesterday to drop off my insurance paperwork. It’s a really weird feeling. Is this what it feels like to be an adult? Ha!

I got to see my classroom the other day. It certainly needs a touch of me. I still haven’t decided on how to set the classroom up. I think it’s important to keep your desk by the door or in line with the door. I had all this training on classroom management, but I’m afraid it will all go out the window soon. Should I group the desks? Should I keep them in lines? Should I pair them up? Why are there so many options available! I think I need to see the dynamic of my students before I make a decision, but a decision still needs to be made for those first days of school! Eep!

I’ve read so many blogs and books about what to do in those first days of school. I don’t want to spend too much time playing those get-to-know-you games, but I want to build a sense of community with my students. The clock is ticking down. I have about 26 days until the first day of school. I have so much planning and organizing to do! Maybe I need to bake something or maybe I just need another cute pair of shoes. An even better idea would be to bake something while wearing a cute new pair of shoes!
