And so it begins...

On Monday, I will go back to begin my 13th year of teaching in my 4th grade classroom.  I'm very excited and nervous all at the same time.  I looped last year so I had most of the same students for two years.  With looping, they knew my quirks and I knew their's.  Although I'm going to miss my sweet babies, I'm so excited to meet my new students.

For the past week, I've been working on my classroom a little at a time, but it's time to get down to business. I'm planning to stick to my color scheme but add black to it.  I'll post pics when I get it done, well at least ready for the students.  Do we ever really get done???  I'm constantly tweaking things to make our room work the best for myself and the students.

So, in celebration for Back to School, I'm joining in the Teachers Pay Teachers Back to School Sale by offering 20% off. Check out my TPT store to find items to help you throughout the year!
