Well, I can’t believe it, but tomorrow I meet my new students: I’ve spent many days preparing my room and I’m pleased with the way it looks. I have my books ready, projects prepared – and all my Open House materials printed. Open House is tomorrow evening, after a minimum day with students.
Some may be horrified at the idea of Open House on the first “night” of school, but I like it: I am able to tell my parents my expectations up front and everyone starts the year off on the right foot.
I’ve only met a few of my children but I know many of the families on my class list: I have had older siblings in the past, so I’m excited about the new school year. I'm starting the year off with Pete the Cat - I've used a lot of resources from all the wonderful blogs out there and created a cute labeling Pete bulletin board. I also scanned a picture from one of the Pete books and printed it poster sized for another bulletin board. The room looks cheerful and friendly!
When do you start back to school?
