I’ve been busy this week getting things ready for back to school. Next week is my last week of summer, so I have to get in gear!
I already made a To-Do list, painted my table caddies, transferred books on tape to mp3, put together my teacher planner, and many of you already saw on Instagram that I got rid of my desk in favor of a smaller computer desk! I’ve been checking the new 2nd-3rd blog Owl-Ways be Inspired each day for a new fun freebie to use in my classroom. I already have 3 reading centers prepped and ready to go!
If you follow my Instagram, you already know that this week I worked on painting my bookshelves. I have 5 shelves that I use for my classroom library and they were all different shades of wood, one spray painted green, and one really old and full of tape and staples. I am ready for a cohesive room, so I painted them black. Many other teacher bloggers have black bookshelves, like Jaimie from 2nd Grade Stuff, Deanna Jump, Alisha from The Bubbly Blonde, and Dandelions and Dragonflies. I already have one tall black shelf and the red dirt here gets everywhere making white out of the question. So I bit the bullet and went with black!
I have one more project for you: I also made some cute magnetic business cards to hand out at Open House!
