Summer school starts Monday! For various reasons, I wasn't able to go in and set-up my room until today. I will be teaching in one of the other elementary schools in my district. One that has AIR CONDITIONING!!! I'm a bit happy about that!
The room I am in is a third grade classroom, but everything in it has been packed up by the teacher. That means I had to box up supplies from my classroom to bring over. It's a good thing I threw everything and then some in my boxes because I found out the summer school supplies they ordered were not going to be delivered in time. So, here's a look at my temporary digs:
It is so strange to be in a classroom that isn't yours. When I came in the desks were all in the middle of the room with chairs scattered. I had to rearrange. I also had to do some decorating to make the room somewhat inviting. I had some leftover circles from my classroom, so I put each friend's name in one with some encouraging words on the white circles. I can't put up too much, but as the weeks go on I know there will be anchor charts and student work up.
So, that's where I will be spending the next five weeks. Tomorrow, I need to work on some lesson plans. The work never ends!!!!!!
