Teaching's A Hoot! Surprisingly, I was one of only two to guess her picture so I feel pretty lucky. You can check them out on her TPT. They are really adorable and I can't wait to use them! She even has matching Chevron Word Wall Letters for free! Sweet, right?
Maybe it's too early to be thinking about it but I have already decided on the theme for my first classroom. I have fallen in love with so many beautiful classrooms I've seen, that I was inspired to start thinking about my own future classroom. So the theme I've decided on is: nautical! I've always lived near the coast and been in love with anchors, the ocean, sea glass, seashells, and all things nautical. My dad and brother are also in the Navy so that has a bit of influence.
I thought I would get an early start on my nautical theme so I picked up a few cute red and blue pieces for my desk (yeah my own desk!). Of course, you can see my two essentials are in place already, Starbucks and hand sanitizes. This weekend during the holiday sales I will look for more pieces to add. This nautical thing has the potential to be very dangerous, I have a habit of developing obsessions...
Oh, and I forgot to mention, third graders are so tall! Coming from first grade last semester, these third graders seem like giants! I mean, I am tall so when I call someone tall, it’s a big deal.
