... in a classroom equipped with A/C.
Not much to see today, just lunch signs and our crate for returned library books. ~And~ I learned something new: Zip ties are cool little things!
Some of the classroom chores I've checked off of my to-do list include:
~ Rearranging furniture to open up the front of the classroom
~ Sorting through and donating reproducible materials
~ Making new book tub labels
~ Sorting and prepping math manipulatives
~ Reworking my quarterly binders and giving them a facelift with new covers
~ Mapping literacy, math, science and social studies concepts and activities by month
~ Reading through and creating Pinterest boards for Common Core Curriculum Maps
~ Prepping Bulletin Boards
~ Organizing art supplies
I'd still like to find a place that will cut composition books in half for kindergarten journals and mini-books. Does anyone have an idea of where I could take them that *wouldn't* cost an arm and a leg? I've seen half-sized notebooks at Walmart in the back-to-school section, but I'd like to work through the stockpile of full size notebooks that I already have before making another purchase.
