T-minus 2 weeks!

So, for the last few weeks I have been working on the classroom and curriculum like a crazy person, as well as having beach visitors and selling hotdogs. So this past weekend, my ridiculously talented, gracious, and helpful cooperating teacher Mary Gilstrap brought her precious family to the beach and helped me with my room. She basically used all of her knowledge and skill to tell me where things need to go and give me ideas for my room. This is the most recent updated pictures of my classroom! Still a work in progress but we're getting there! YIPEE!

I'm in over my head here...

For the last two days, I have been in my classroom moving furniture, unloading boxes, and TRYING to be an organized teacher! I've got all of the furniture where it belongs (with the exception of the desks because the carpet cleaners will just have to move them). I have STARTED laying out where some wall decorations will go, and have picked out a paint color to cover up the SUNSHINE that was sprayed on the cabinets before. I still have MORE than enough to do to keep me busy for the next month, and I still think that I will be missing things on the first day of school. Here are a few pictures of the work that I've done over the last few days!

Sorry he's sideways, but this is my MOVEABLE Uncle Sam. I can't decide if he'd make for good decoration or if he would give the kiddos bad dreams.
