Last night, it was time for our annual Ice Cream Social / Meet the Teacher Night. It began at 6 P.M. and luckily I had everything ready by about 5:45 P.M. (After realizing that I only had 24 name tags on the tables and 25 students in my classroom. Thank goodness, I have the best classroom aide in the world. She hurried and laminated the name tag and cut it out for me.) Most of my new students visited the classroom.
Here is what my room looked like:
The right side of the classroom.
Part of my calendar wall.
The rest of my calendar wall.
The boys and girls are going to bring in pictures of their families to put on "Our Family Tree" on the first day of school. I "borrowed" this idea from another blog. But, of course, I can't remember which one. If you know please let me know so I can give the blogger credit.
I also had some goodies for them to take home.
The bookmarks came from the A Place Called Kindergarten blog.
The "Ready Confetti" came from the Sunny Days in Second Grade blog.
I hope you enjoyed visiting my classroom. Now that my room is ready, I need to finish up my lesson plans. I'm hoping to post about my lesson plans soon.
