Today was my first official day back to work! My goodness, where did the time go??? The students report next Monday but us teachers have a packed week of Professional Development. Remember that resolution about complaining less? Well, I did my best today! As with the start of every school year, things change (and almost always for the better) but no one really likes too much change, right? I did my best job about not complaining when the administration let us know that we would now be doing a weekly lunch supervision. WHHHAAATTT???? We've never done this in the past so a big change for us! We are getting a prep time though, so even trade? Almost. In California right now it is a blazing 105 degrees with no chance of getting cold anytime soon. So, I may melt during lunch supervision but I'll be frosty during prep time.
Anyway, on to my Made it Monday for 4th Grade Frolics' Linky Party. This is seriously the most awesome linky, I looove to see others' creativity! It doesn't have anything to do with my classroom but for me. It was Pinterest inspired... I took my headphones that I use in my car (safety first) and covered them in embroidery floss to avoid a tangled mess. They came out super cute! While they are super cute, it took FOR-EV-ER to make! Let me say that again, FOR-EV-ER! Over 3 hours total. Once I got the hang of it, it wasn't so bad but I did have to stop and come back to them to finish. I used a YouTube video to take me through the steps. You can find the video here and the Pin that inspired me here.
Here it is...
Don't forget to link up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for your Currently. There are over 300 people linking up so far! Isn't that amazing?!
1. I spend way too much time getting everything ready for the new kiddos. I just can't start a new school year with having to dig for something!
2. I just got these 80's Glam Sharpie Pens... LOVE THEM! A new plan book is a must. Actually, I spilled a little tea on my new plan book after already writing all the dates and everything in it SOO I went out a got a new one. I mean, I can't start the year with a sticky, brown plan book, right? A fresh, new one was a must!
3. I have to have a new outfit for at least the first day of school and for Back to School night. Nothing makes me feel better than the confidence a new outfit brings me! hehe. My husband may disagree...
Ok people! Since this is the week before school starts, I WILL be posting pictures of my classroom soon. I got carried away with doing nothing last week so they will come this week.
