Classroom Prep

I have been heading into my classroom since Monday...the kiddos won't show up until August 6th.
Here's what the hallway outside my door looks like....I will put the kiddos names on the same owls.  Owls are very popular right now....and I just think they are super cute!

  I have been doing some fun prep things at home as well...These are going to be my students reading eyes/ space man.  This helps those little angels that don't like to follow along with their finger while we are reading.  It also helps the kids that forgettheirspaces between their words.

 had to dye 

I also made a calm down bottle...I got the inspiration after I saw this on Pinterest.  I suppose it's okay if the glitter settles on the top and the bottom.  I may or may not have washed a ton of glitter down my sink in the process of making this.

I am pretty overwhelmed with all of things I need to do.  I find myself gravitating towards the fun things...and leaving the not so fun  more necessary and essential things for last. How is your classroom coming along?

Thanks for reading!  Apple on!

I'm totally going to copy your bulletin board...we loop with our classes so I have the same kids as last year, need some new stuff :)Do you kids pick the eye off and lose their sticks? How often do you do your testing to level the kids? I don't know what clip is, we use our DIBELS scores. Wish I could be in my classroom but with these 3 kids....

Deanna...totally copy. I probably copied it from someone last year! If my kids pick the eye off they don't get a new one :) I'm mean. We test our kids reading level each mid-quarter and each quarter (so every month). I will do a post later with my rules and the ladder system for you!
