Wow!! It has been a crazy five weeks of school. Just this week, which is week 5, I actually feel like I am organized and know what is going on. I am happy to say that I don't have any piles of "stuff" to put away in my classroom and I am hoping (fingers crossed) that I won't have to spend 4 hours at school on Saturday this weekend. Along with all the normal start of school stuff, I am the technology person in my building---that means I have to fix all the computers ( I think somebody failed to mention that I know NOTHING about computers)---but I think they are all working this week.
So, I haven't been totally uncreative---we've had a little creativity going on in the class room. The first day of school I have my students draw a picture of themselves, then we make a frame out of black construction paper. This equals the decoration on the back of my classroom wall all year long---and we never get tired of looking at them.
