Wow, summer is already over! I went back on contact today and honestly, I am a mix of emotions. I am super eager to get into my routine and get back to normal. I am one of those weird teachers who does not do well with a lot of time off. On the other hand, I’m nervous because I have changed so much. My classroom looks totally different, but I have the same assistants, therapists and kiddos from last year. Having to teach them all how my classroom runs and help them change the norm while still figuring it out feels daunting, but I can do it!
We have moved rooms, again. This is how my classroom looked when I walked in yesterday. I am sorry to say I have not gotten very far-a lot will be done when my husband comes to help me on Saturday.
As for my to do list, I did not conquer everything. I was too busy soaking up those last sweet moments of relaxation, so I guess it was well deserved! Here is what is on my end of August to do list for academics:
- 3 little pigs materials
- Vowel task cards
- Graphing worksheets
- Expanded scientific method worksheets
- All Rules and Laws materials
- All government materials
As you can see, the academics took a hit. Luckily, these are my October plans so I have time to get them done!
I have most of my October adapted materials printed, I just need to assemble. That’s also on my to-do list. I did get the kid’s binders set up, it’s a great start 🙂
Part 2 of my to-do list, everything else! That includes
- Finish student binder set up
- Create my own grade book
- Create lesson plans
- Create schedules
- First week of school plans
- IEP snapshots
- Make teacher binder
- Set up classroom.
Kids come to school on August 29, 12 days until go time!!
