Coming along

The classroom is coming along. I've been putting up bulletin boards, moving furniture, sewing, sketching/cutting/coloring bulletin board characters and starting to prep first week of school stuff. I have also spent some time leveling all of my classroom library books with the DRA reading levels. It took me about a half of a day to do all of the books I had at school, round two and three will come when we get more out of storage!
 Books, books book.

Cutting out something I sketched. Any guesses as who/what I sketched?

This year I have been hired to teach 3rd grade at a new school. I am thrilled as I have never taught 3rd grade before, but am a bit nervous to start the year out, as I always am with a new grade level. It's always a little nerve racking when you are at a new job, with new co-workers, a new grade level, AND   you have never taught that grade level before. I am excited and up for the challenge (and a little nervous too). Luckily I have been texting one of my co-workers and have met in person the other co-worker of mine, and I know we are all going to work together nicely. So as of now there are 3 of us, but soon will be 4. I was able to sit on the interview team and hopefully we'll have our 4th teacher soon.

I got a chance to go into my new classroom to see what I had to work with and took a few photos. Check out my new digs (none of that stuff piles up around the room is mine).

Here is the door to my room. I am loving the shadow box outside of my room. You know I'll do something crafty with that! 

Yes that is a Smart Board. I am excited to learn how to use that bad boy!

Why that board has wood paneling but it's got to go.  

Windows.... need to measure, I'm going to make curtains. 

Loving the built in bookcase but I am not loving that my cabinet only has one door (it's suppose to be that way I was just surprised when I saw it). 

Can't wait to move in. July 10th is the magic day.
