Hello Everyone! This sums up my feelings on school supplies. I have a hard time saying no and have already dropped a good chunk of change for the upcoming school year. But it’s all good because I am pumped and ready for a fresh new start.
This year I’ll be at a new school and I am both excited and a wee bit nervous. I’m not always very good with change but I just could not pass up this opportunity. I know someone that works at my new school who absolute loves it there and it’s only 15 minutes away versus the 40 I was driving before.
Every new school year is a fresh start, but this one more so because it’s a new school too, so the students don’t have any preconceived notions about me. I’m not really able to work on much curriculum wise (which to be honest I don’t really need to because I am not teaching anything new), but I’ve been working on things for the classroom.
#1 – The Bulletin Board
Someone posted it this to my Facebook a few months ago and I knew this was something I wanted to put up in my classroom to turn those negative feelings around.
#2 – The Happy Board
I got this idea from another teacher to keep things that the students wrote/gave me so that if I have a bad day I can look at these things and remember them. I left plenty of white space for things from my new students!
I also wanted to take a moment to share the card. It’s definitely the best thing I’ve gotten from a student in my three years of teaching.
#3 – Student Quotes
The last two years I’ve had my Geometry students write letters to future students. This years letters were REALLY GOOD and they had some very helpful advice so I made a quote poster. The plan is to hopefully have it blown up and printed on big paper to display in my classroom, but I’m not sure that my school has that machine. If not I will just make copies and pass them out to students.
I really hope that I can get it in color too, but we’ll see.
That’s about all from me now. I hope to have some more reviews and things coming soon!
