New Year, New Beginnings, New Budget

New Year, New Beginnings, New Budget

So last year I shared with you a picture that embodied how I felt about the first day of workdays. I will now do the same for this year:

Bless. We were all just having too much fun to do the whole work thing! But I’m over it now and back in work mode/teacher mode/get up on time like a responsible adult mode. (Ha, not really. That’ll NEVER happen!)
Of course we’ve all been working ridiculously hard and yet I feel I have little to show for it. Meetings meetings meetings… But today will be the day! I will get ALL of my bulletin boards put up. I will get my table labels on tables that I will clean. I will even crack open the old lesson plan book (again, not really – I’m a tech girl living in a digital world. Now read that again like you’re Madonna.)
Well, here is what I have so far:
We will be learning the colors from my table labels in French, Spanish, Dutch, and Greek this year. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: thank goodness for Google Translate.

And then I’ve also completed one entry way bulletin board. Thanks to Mercedes Benz and Katie Morris for this awesome idea!


Alright, it’s 7am and I still haven’t gotten out of bed – see, I told you I would never really be a responsible adult!


Slowly But Surely…


Four more days… And don’t call me Shirley! 🙂

Pictures from around the classroom:

Rules of play!

Art. Music. Physical Education. Board! We have lots of fun!

Two down… Two more to go!!!

Booooring! Let’s see what we can do with this!

First project of the year: “I like art because…” mini self portraits and easels. Thank you pinterest goddesses!

Table labels with the colors in different languages and a 4S line sign! Thanks, Adventures of an Art Teacher!





Will be this, after the first week of school. For fourth grade, each table will get a letter of ARTIST and will fill each letter with a collage of colors from magazines. Thanks, Mrs. Recker!
