It's Summer Vacation

Love that each group has its own bookcase and trash can! Super organized!

It's summer vacation, but I can't stop thinking about the new school year.  I have lots of plans for change.  I actually like change, so this is good.  I've been thinking a lot about how I will organize the classroom differently this year.  I found an idea for my desks on Pinterest that I love, so if all goes well my husband will build the bookshelves this summer.  (It helps that he is the maintenance supervisor at school.)  I also like the idea of using a clear shoe closet organizer for my small store supplies.  We do an economic unit all year and shop twice a  month. I use a lot from Beth Newingham.  Check out her site at .  It is wonderful.  Both of the pinterest pictures were from Amber Polk at .  Check out her site.  It's pretty cool.

  1. As a mom of 3 of your past students, I am excited that you have started your own blog! We all loved your classroom, and your teaching style. You bless all of your students, and now you are blessing your fellow teachers with you blog!

    1. Your awesome! Thanks! I can't believe how big yours have gotten either. It's very strange that kids in my kindergarten class are now graduating. Where does the time go? I don't feel any different.
