The first day of school is tomorrow!!!

I can't wait to meet my new class!

I THINK I'm ready.  So ready, in fact, I am now getting nervous about the fact that I am NOT nervous.  #teacherproblems

So without further ado, check out this year's classroom...
(clearly I have a problem with taking far too many pictures)



View from the front door... 


Small group meeting area...


Still happy with my computers up high with file cabinet storage underneath.  One computer is hooked up to my Smart board and the other is for teacher use.  The iPad tower sits in the middle.  LOVE my iPads!!!


My easel came from a Donors Choose project from last year...


This counter holds my Writing Workshop materials...


I just love this easy birthday board!


My classroom job chart...


I'm trying out book bins this year instead of book pouches.  Hopefully this will keep my books in better condition!  (I number a lot of items in my classroom and 4th Grade Frolics has a great free set of numbers that I use!)


My desk area...


 A neat and tidy desk is a beautiful thing!


Love my storage bins for my daily materials!


Check out that brand spankin' new carpet!  All of K-2 found these waiting in our classrooms this year.  So cool.  My "First Day Feelings" graph is ready to go tomorrow!


Front board with scheduling information, compliments, and calendar...


A few daily management materials...


My lunch choice chart - the kids simply put their magnet on their choice for the day!


Secret Star display from Cupcake for the Teacher - so excited to try this out this year!


I like to have my Word Work area set up and ready at the beginning of the year.
Can't wait to begin Daily 5 instruction!


My (empty-for-now) Focus Wall...


Still have my ribbon word wall hanging...


Can't forget my class rules...



Phew!  I'm exhausted just looking at it all again!  Time to turn in and start dreaming about the perfect first day of school, haha!
Happy September!  

September in Upstate NY for teachers is always bittersweet... the end of summer and the beginning of a new school year.  In my district teachers go back tomorrow, and the kiddos arrive on Wednesday.

Of course, a new month always means it's time to link up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade for this month's Currently...



Listening - I just love Bachelor in Paradise.  ABC brings all the crazies from past seasons together and it's fabulous!  Total train wreck and I'm addicted.

Loving - Today was an unexpectedly gorgeous day outside.  I spent my last day of summer soaking up the sun and relaxing on the boat.  It was glorious!

Thinking - I'm so excited to meet my new batch of firsties this week!  I will have 23 new kiddos walking through the door on Wednesday and I can't wait to meet them.

Wanting - A new school year is always exciting, but with it brings the stress of getting ready.  And when I'm stressed, I can kiss sleep goodbye.  Hopefully I'm feeling prepared enough to rest well tonight and and tomorrow night.  We shall see!

Needing - Nothing.

3 Trips - Hawaii, Italy, Greece.  Do these places need any explanation?  When do we leave?!!
