I was going to make a cute little sign to attach to the straws but when I came across these birthday stickers I forgot I bought
who knows when months ago, I decided to use those instead! When the students receive their straw, they can take the sticker off and wear it--who doesn't love stickers??!
I just taped the sticker on!
In other news, I have been working on my classroom for about a week now and I am FINALLY feeling like progress has been made. As soon as school let out at the end of May, I packed up my 4th grade classroom and, with the help of a few friends, successfully moved all of my junk over to my new 1st grade room in the next building! Here's my 4th grade room:
Goodbye, 4th grade!!! All that remains is the new 4th grade teacher's stuff...and the frogs that I just realized I left hanging from the ceiling--whoops! :)
The lady in 1st, whose place I am taking, retired, so while she was moving out she graciously allowed me to move my stuff in. That was a HUGE help because I only had friend help one day. That same day, a good 1st grade friend realized that she was moving (military husband) and brought over a ton of her stuff for me to have. The retiring teacher also left me a ton of stuff (including furniture!). Here is all of the madness!! Yikes!!!
Moving along--I had a little time to sort through some of the madness before we got kicked out for the summer. Holy moly--what a task.
Done! Packed and ready for summer!!
So, what does it look like now after a week of working on it??? Well, you'll just have to come back tomorrow and see. ;)
