End of July already?

Really how did that happen? Where did my summer go? I go back tomorrow to start on my room. This is a complete redo since all my stuff is packed in boxes or in my dining room. I switched to the brand new school so I am starting over. I am so excited though, last year I went into a room that was inherited and I got so much amazing stuff, I also really never felt like I set anything up. I left a lot of the furniture where it was, the supplies where they were, etc. Now it is all me baby! Watch me set it up exactly like it was LOL. My new school is the identical floor plan as my old one, I even have 2 windows like I did. The only difference is a wall of cabinets which I am completely giddy about. But those glorious cabinets have made it difficult for my bookshelves and reading center so lots of thinking will go into that. I will post before and after pics here.

Now onto some amazing giveaways I have found reading Blog Lovin’. I probably shouldn’t share them with you because that lowers my odds. . .

I finally was able to get into my brand, spankin’ new school today and it is GORGEOUS! We were unloading 34 pallets full of DRA, Social Studies Alive, and manipulatives. Then once everything was unpacked we carted things to all the rooms. It was like Christmas. As a bonus I was able to see my room, take some pictures, and start planning where everything will go. So exciting! Here are some pics. The first is my classroom and all my “stuff”. Then we have part of the cafeteria, looking towards to front. Then we have the gym, I love the windows in there. The next picture is the front foyer and the office.
