So many things to be thankful for!

Well, teacher friends, our first 2 weeks of school are behind us and I have so many things to be thankful for. I have a wonderful class of 25 (yes, 25) students and awesome parents to work with this year! I have an A-M-A-zing teaching partner and a fabulous new administration that is super supportive! Here a few final pics of the room arrangement to share…

Our Listening Center this year will only accommodate 2 students – for very good reasons!
Birthday Board & Polka Dot Cabinet
The polka dots were made with pre-cut circles from the Dollar Tree. There was enough in 1 package to do the whole cabinet.

The letters were made using an awesome font from Lettering Delights called Funky Chicken – absolutely LOVE this font!
