Well summer is officially over and now we are getting ready to begin a new school year! We were so excited about setting up our classroom and getting our class lists. Because Miss Donofrio taught in First Grade last year and Mrs. Alvarado taught Kindergarten in separate rooms, we needed to put our ideas for our new classroom together. What does it take to get a classroom ready?...Lots of excitement, lots of hours of organizing books and files, typing, making labels and signs, rearranging the room, deciding on learning stations and where to keep everything, 7 trips to Walmart, 6 trips to the Dollar Store, 4 trips to School Aids, 2 trips to Target and 1 trip to Office Max. We are thrilled to invite our First Graders into a classroom that is organized and inviting and set up for an amazing year of learning and fun! We hope that you enjoy seeing how we transformed our room.
