Monday at 9:45 pm I received the phone call offering me the First Grade position I had interviewed for just a few days prior!
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday were long days....starting at 6:30 am finishing my room at the Autism Academy until 10 am, then driving a half hour, and beginning to work on my first grade room!! It was an exhausting week, but a week I would not have traded for the world!! This is my dream and I am so tickled to be a first grade teacher :-D
I have had my students for two days and have already changed my seating into rows...we just aren't ready for cute little groups yet! However, I wanted to share some of my classroom pictures! I'm happy with how it looked for the first day...
|Welcome to our First Grade room!|
|Cubbies and Storage|
|Small Group / Reading Instruction table|
|Morning Meeting and Math focus board|
|Teacher Zone :) It isn't nearly this neat anymore :(|
|Closed cubbies with sticker reward charts!|
|Word Wall (yay for having a Cricut -- thanks Mom & Dad!)|
|My favorite project so far....our classroom rules/promise :)|
