The orders arrived well on time this year, and it was exciting to unpack the boxes and set up new titles for our class library.
I had read over the summer about unusual ways to cover bulletin boards. Luckily there is a scrapbook shop near where I live so I stocked up on some fabric and duct tape with the trending pineapple motif.
I randomly chose 3 small posters to greet my students as they open the door to the classroom. On looking at the photo I took of the door, I realized that the notices reflected my mission as an educator:
the joy and importance of reading
honoring, encouraging and learning from risk takers
and birthdays, of course
I think that says it all, don’t you?
I am looking forward to another year – always so different from previous ones.
