Getting My Classroom Ready (Day 1)

Today was the first day that I have been back to my room all summer...  I took a whole car load of stuff that I have been making and buying all summer and had big plans for what I wanted to do in my classroom today.... I got to my classroom and discovered that they had never cleaned my room... :o(

I decided to unload and get as much done as I could anyways.... When I leave for the summer, I pack everything up and lock everything in cabinets that I have in my classroom.. So when I come back in the fall I start from scratch....

I didn't get as far as I wanted today.  But I did get my desk area unpacked and somewhat organized.... Here is a picture of my teacher wall hanging I made.... It looks so cute in my classroom... I am very happy with my my first "Monday Made It".



And I got the front board area done....  Above the boards is another one of my "Monday Made It" projects, my Mathematical Practices Posters... Another "Monday Made It" project is my new Depth of Knowledge posters on the board. I want the students to know and understand the DOK Levels and so I created posters...


On the other side of the board you can see more of my "Monday Made It" projects, my mini Mathematical Practices I Can posters that coordinate with the big posters above the board.



This is still a work in progress.... But I am happy with my accomplishments for my first day back in my classroom....  I will be going back for the second day next week....
