It's August and I just can't help myself. Even though I want to enjoy every last moment of my precious, Vermont summer, I find myself spending hours in the classroom cleaning, arranging, unpacking supplies and preparing for our year together. It's about this point in summer that I feel the pull as my excitement for the new year builds. I love spending time creating a warm, inviting, organized space that I will share with you for the next 9 months. After all, we will spend a great deal of time together in this "home away from home". I'm glad you have stopped by for a sneak peek of our room.

This year I added more yoga balls to our classroom seating options. These are a favorite for students who love to move and bounce. Equally popular, are the Learniture Active Learning stools that allow students to rock and spin. I was lucky enough to get 6 stools through a fully funded Donors Choose project last year. Each table grouping has a minimum of 2 yoga balls, one rocker stool, and one chair with an optional stability disk. This year I have submitted another project on Donors Choose ( ttps://tinyurl.com/yazyjwzh) because I dream of adding some flexible furniture pieces to create collaboration areas throughout our room.

This year I want to honor the important connection between home and school by creating a family picture board. I thought this would be a great way for your teacher and classmates to "meet" the important people in your life. I hope that it will also bring you comfort to see these familiar faces, especially at the beginning of the year as we transition back to school.
|This board is awaiting your family photos!|
