A Big Change (again) and A Sneak Peek

Hi Friends!

I am beat! It has been a whirlwind of a week, but I am excited to let you know that I will no longer be teaching 4th grade this year! In the last week, I was offered and accepted a position in a different school district, and will be teaching… drum roll please… 2nd Grade! I’m beyond thrilled! πŸ™‚ I was very sad to leave my old district, but the move just made sense. It’s closer to my husband’s new job and I’ll be teaching a grade that is much more in my comfort zone.

As you may know, I spent all summer preparing for 4th grade, so the last few days have been ridiculously busy. I have been working hard in my classroom. I am getting close to being done, but for now, here is a sneak peak at a few little details. πŸ˜‰

First I had to get everything there… I think I might have a book hoarding problem!



Now onto the sneak peek. Here is my new {Tropical Themed Clip Chart}! I love it! Click on the picture to purchase it from my TpT store.

Here’s my check out chart that I blogged about {here}. I actually need to add one more pocket because I only put 20 on it. I guess number 21 with be a little out of line.

And here’s my Daily 5 Choice chart. πŸ™‚

My plan is to finish my room tomorrow so I can post pictures this weekend, but we’ll see if that happens. Sometimes my plans are a little more ambitious than reality. πŸ˜‰

Until then, have a great rest of your week!

    Congratulations on your move. I went from 2nd to 4th this year and it is a HUGE difference. I am not sure which I prefer yet. Glad you are happy with your change. I am looking forward to seeing your room.
