Oh my goodness, the last couple of weeks have been crazy with getting ready for the beginning of the school year! We started this Monday, and back to school night is tomorrow!!
I know I was planning on having my classroom pics up a while ago, but I just haven’t gotten around to it yet!! As always, too much to do and too little time!! I did have a chance to snap a couple photos though of my kiddos’ name posters and book baskets! I LOVE how their name posters turned out!! I have such an artistic class, which is wonderful because I love doing lots of fun artsy things!
Also, we are using the same book baskets from last year, but I loved Tara’s student name tags on her baskets and decided to add some to mine as well! I just bought labels from target, backed them with card stock, punched a hole, and then tied them on with some cute blue and green ribbons! Now it is super easy for my students to find their baskets!
Also, since I teach 4th grade social studies, we will be learning all about California this year! To start the year I have my students make license plates for our “road trip” all over California! I got this idea from another teacher (who also gave me a blackline of the CA license plate) and I think this is such a fun way to start off our social studies unit! We talk about license plates and how many characters they can have as well as some examples of what people put on personalized license plates.
I will be posting pictures of my entire classroom sometime… hopefully sooner rather than later!!
