Then...the school supplies start to appear in the stores! My pulse starts to quicken...my mind begins thinking about the how I can use the newest smelly markers, or where I will store the two-tone view binders, or how many pencils and erasers it will take to get to the end of the year.
I can't help it. I love getting my classroom ready for a new year! Rearranging the desks, putting up new bulletin boards, planning the units and themes of new curriculum...It is all so exciting!
Even more so, I am excited as the students come into the classroom on the first day, ready to find their desks, figure out where to hang their backpacks, and chat with their friends about what they did over the summer break!
I can't wait to start this next school year with my new class of Grade 3 and 4 students! Please feel free to call, drop in or send me an e-mail if you have any questions. Together we can make this a great year for your child!
