Classroom Pics & Clip Chart Part 2 :)
I have been working a little each day in my room and I am making pretty good head way. Above you can see what I walked into on Monday. I always feel so overwhelmed on my first day back but slowly things start getting sorted and put back where they go or in their new spot. We had to take EVERYTHING off the walls at the end of the year so having to put them back up is not usually on my to do list during this time... but this year it had to be and lucky for me my para came in on Monday to help and she will be with me again tomorrow. She is such a huge help and I truly don't know if I could do what I do without her!! I am no where near done but here is what it looked like when I left on Monday. It is starting to resemble a classroom of sorts... :)
Here is a close up picture of my favorite new addition to my room this year... Pink Polka Dot material!!! I love it with the black border!! Thank you Hobby Lobby!!! I swear I think I could live there! I love that place!!!
I will take some more tomorrow afternoon before I leave.
I was able to go to school for a couple hours this morning. Why does time go by so fast when you have soo much to do???? My biggest accomplishment this morning was assembling my clip chart!! It still has to be laminated and of course it still needs polka dots, but here it is and I am really liking my new labels!! :)
I have had a few people ask about how I explain this to my parents and how I report daily behavior, so you can find my Discipline Policy HERE and my Monthly Behavior Chart HERE! My discipline policy is a combination of things I have found here there and everywhere and my behavior calendars are from I think the DJ Inker Kidilly Wink CD. Maybe?? I just added the behavior codes and title...thinking I may shorten that list, but can't decide. :)
