Tomorrow night is our Meet the Teacher night and then Friday is our first day of school! I don't feel ready AT ALL! Today I had to run to the teacher supply store for more border because I ran out with 1/2 a foot to go! Then when I got to the store I found that they were completely out of that style so I had to settle for a different pattern. I used it to cap the ends and middle of my 15 foot long bulletin board in the hallway. I'm still not sure how I feel about mixing two patterns together - there's something in me that is screaming for uniformity! I may go back tomorrow and pull it all down and just use the second type of border by itself.
Of course I probably won't have time to do that - we have a workshop in the morning, a pot luck lunch together and then a workshop across town until 4pm. Then the Meet the Teacher night starts at 4:30!! I still need to hook up my student computers, do a final dusting and put up my student names and decorate the class tree! I have serious doubts that I will be able to accomplish it all!
Of course, I can't complain because we have a new teacher who just found out her grade assignment and classroom at the end of the day today! By the way, so far I'm still a 1st grade teacher - got a list of my 23 firsties this afternoon. However, kindergarten is at 24 students apiece right now, so if we get many more we'll be authorized another teacher - but not until that magical tenth day of school of course! So while I may start out in first, there's still a chance that I will be in K. So for now I'll hold off on changing my blog name!
