Classroom Before Pics and a Sale

Hi friends!
I tried to remember to take some pics of my classroom before I started in on the mess, but I forgot of course. So I took pictures the next day. I already had two walls of bulletin boards done but everything else was a huge mess in these pics~
This is to the left after you walk into our classroom door.
 This is the back of our classroom.
 This pic is the right of the classroom.
 And this last pic is from the back of the room looking towards the front of the room.
I'm glad to say that I'm almost done. I'd better be, students begin on Monday! EEEK!
Don't forget~ the one day sale is tomorrow! I'm adding items to my cart and I'll show you what I purchased soon=)

Back to School and a Sale

Hello friends!
Here was my July/August to do list:
Four weeks of summer school~ check!
Stay in third grade~ check!
One week of trying to put my room back together~ check!
First day back~ check!
Ready for students on Monday~ getting there!
Being a productive blogger~ fail! Ahhhh!

Oh well~
Here are a few more pics of my summer school fun=)
After learning all about worms, we learned about spiders. We learned so many amazing facts about these 8 legged creatures. So we made spider hats to show off our learning. On each leg, the kiddos wrote new facts they learned. And these hats came out so darn cute!

One other goal I had for summer was to revamp some of our products and finish up some works in progress.
This was our first freebie ever { last summer}! Changed out the clip art and touched it up!
Freebie First Day Jitters Graph
Tina created this cute Odd and Even game and I can't wait to use it the first week of school!

News Flash~ I'm a Third Grade Teacher Again

Hello friends!
I can't believe it. I was preparing to become a 5th grade teacher. {This post tells the news.} I had finally accepted it {but I was secretly hoping that somehow I would get to stay in 3rd grade}.
And now I am back in the third grade. I tell my students that I loved third grade so much as kid that I'm still a third grader.
Best. Year. Ever.

Well on to other stuff~  I have been teaching summer enrichment for the last 3 weeks. I am teaching kiddos that will be entering the third grade. And I want to share with you some of our summer school fun.

We studied worms {ew~ I don't teach science, Tina does. But this year, I will be teaching science so this was good practice!} The students observed, measured, touched, and made a new friend

The next day, we measured and stretched gummi worms. And we made dirt cups! We used pudding cups, oreos, and gummi worms. Delicious!

I'll share some more summer school fun tomorrow!
BTW~ I have had so many problems with blogger this summer. I've tried to post other pics and it keeps crashing. Is anybody else having issues?
