New Year, New Ideas!

Hello friends,

How did you first week of school go? I will be starting next Tuesday, and after three-week winter break, I am expecting for some meltdowns and tantrums...I know I have to be the adult! I am preparing myself to run out the door after some of my kids - yep, I have two runners, and one little guy that hasn't adjust to the school schedule yet...we're working on this.

I am pretty excited to see all of my little people again, I sure missed them. To ensure an easy transition, I have incorporated some new and exciting things into the classroom.

Let's begin with our brand new Focus Board.
We will be building onto this wall throughout the day and review it right before dismissal time. It will give the students an opportunity to review everything we did during our day and be able to answer the dreaded question a lot easier "what did you do at school today?"

We have spent the first semester focusing on letter awareness and phonemic awareness, and I feel my class is ready for a word wall. Because our classroom wall space is limited, I am using a clear shoe rack for my word wall.
We will begin using word cards to be placed on the clear pockets and gradually increasing with small objects to be matched with the correct letter.
My winter break vacation is officially over. I truly enjoyed spending time with my husband and our daughters - but its time to go back to school. 

Wish me luck! I'm gonna need it!

Keep learning!
