I have found some great ideas using Pinterest to update the decor in my classroom.* It’s been helpful to freshen up my bulletin board outside of my door. My desk is clean save the Springboard posters I have to monitor our progress through a unit of study. I will be putting some finishing touches on my writing utensils organizer and start filling lockers in preparation for our sixth grade orientation. The process of nesting reminds me of my pregnancy with my son; I began tidying like mad during the last weeks before delivery. A new year means a new group of young people to teach, mold, and love. I am ready now.
*I will add pictures once the final touches are added.
