Meeting the Kiddos

I met the kiddos on Thursday! It was a whirlwind, but it went great!  I have 19 (yes 19!!!!)  sweeties! I have a great feeling about this year, even with all of the changes in store.  Besides, I hear nothing but praises from the 2nd grade teacher!

Well, here is a peek into my classroom on Orientation night!

My Welcome Banner out in the hall!

Outside the door.  I has little dots with each kiddo's name below. 

I used Jen's survey.  I created my own Volunteer Sign Up form, inspired by Ms Cosby . You can download a version here. It's editable so you can change what you need to.  (Its looks all wonky in Google Docs, but once you download, the Powerpoint will be cute!)  Click here to grab it.  I ended up passing out the papers on the desks because I was afraid no one would pick them up! haha!

I found some glow necklaces in my room while I was cleaning and I remembered Ginger's cute tags! My kids loved them! 

Oh and one more thing that I don't have a picture of. I created magnets with my contact information on them. 

They looked like this, but with my info added.  

I printed on cardstock, laminated them and hot glued a magnet on the back. I had lots of great comments about them. Well worth the effort!  I created an editable template for you guys.  It has several different picture options. Click her to grab it!

Well, there is a little peek into my room.  The parents only drop in so it wasn't anything too fancy, but it went pretty well.  

I am excited about starting on Monday, but I'm certainly going to enjoy my last free day tomorrow!
