Well in typical school style, my mom's classroom wasn't ready. She got all new flooring though and it looks super night. She also has a giant room so I really don't feel sorry for her. I also realized one of the greatest things you can keep in your desk is this:
Why do I not have a little tool kit in my room? We used it countless times to tighten some knobs and things. It was just great to have around.
I have also been looking for a good Common Core checklist. I want to use this as I go though our reading/literacy lessons to ensure that I'm hitting all of the standards. I plan to check them off as I cover them and marking each time I cover them throughout the year.
This is a great free checklist I have found on TPT. It's great and I like the "I Can" language they use. Makes it simple for everyone. Click the picture above to link to Elaine's TPT store.
I am going to be working really hard this year to stay organized (although I say this every year). Wi
