My Week, My Favorite Thing in My Classroom and My 1st Currently

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can make it through the last 1/2 day of school tomorrow.  Wow - it has been such a busy week.  Kindergarten Promotion was on Monday.  My students did such a great job singing, dancing, and signing!!!  The parents all enjoyed the program and cried during One Small Voice.  Mission accomplished!  :)  Report card comments were due to Admin on Tuesday.  Today we worked on our Father's Day projects.  {More on that in a future post.}  Tomorrow the kids stay until 12:45.  We have a day of bubbles, cupcakes and fun scheduled.  Hopefully, I will not cry too much.  Friday is our Teacher Work Day to finish out our end of the year "stuff" and my parents are coming into town from Kansas.

As I was taking things down today, I had to take a picture of my favorite thing in my room before it was gone.  To understand my love for my favorite thing, you have to understand my room. {This is going to be long - sorry.}  I have 8, yes 8, doors in my room.  Each wall has two, one at each end.  Two doors outside, two doors to school hallway, two doors that go to the other two Kinder rooms and bathrooms, and two doors for my closets.  Two of my walls have whiteboards.  Another wall has my windows outside.  My fourth wall has my sinks and waterfountains, two small bulletin boards and a big empty space.  The big empty space is where my favorite thing in my classroom is located.


I was in this classroom 3 years ago and this space was just a wasted space.  This year I was assigned  to this room again.  {Really, I volunteered.  Who in their right mind would want a room with 8 doors?} I knew I had to do something with the only space I had to display student work.  This is what I came up with.  My bestie helped me line up the scrapbook paper.  It took awhile, but in the end, so worth it. I added clothespins to easily put up and take down projects and art work.  I loved it and it has been something that a lot of people have complimented me on this year.  I am so sad that I have to take it down tomorrow.  We have to take everything down {except alphabet lines} for the summer.  Hey, maybe if I put a letter on each clip...hmmmm.  Do you think that will work?  lol

Thanks for letting me share my favorite thing in my classroom!

I am so excited to be joining Farley in my very first Currently.  I have been seeing these for months and I am finally ready to jump in feet first.


I so wish we could go back to Italy.  We went about 4 years ago and I loved it!  I had the best gelato in Bellagio and it was so relaxing in Asolo.  Ah, memories.   We have been to Disneyland twice so far this year {annual passes}.  We are going to go to San Diego this summer.  I can't wait to go back to the zoo and to take Colton on a pirate ship.
