I am excited about some of the construction as every classroom has received new sound systems and interactive white boards. Any way these next two days are dedicated to getting, folders, lunch clips, bus tags name tags ready as well as I large list of other things (I can officially check name tags off my list, thanks Fran from Kindergarten Crayons for mentioning where I can find the plastic name tag covers.)
I use the great resources from Environments to make name tags for my class. Each student has a picture beginning with the same letter sound as their name which really helps for recognition. I also use Environments for classroom labels too!
This year I'm excited to have only 24 kiddos in my room a nice change from the 29 I had last year. We begin next week with an orientation day on Tuesday, half the class on Wednesday, the remaining half on Thursday and the full class next Friday. Wednesday and Thursday our reading specialist and her little elves will be pulling all kinders for literacy testing. This is a big help to the classroom teachers and we really appreciate it.
Wishing everyone a relaxing Labor day weekend. I'll post classroom pics soon.
