In like a "Lion"
First week on the job. So I took a long-term sub position this week. I started on Tuesday because I wanted to go in on Monday after-school and setup my classroom. It's a tough situation where the students have had no structure all year! I mean for over 14 weeks. So...I came in and it's going...OK. What's going right? The decor and room setup. I arranged the desks in a U-shape so I can see all faces, and see the name tags I placed on every desk. Opps! I didn't take a pic of that...I'll have to add it later. I have white boards for each subject to alert students to the Objective, Agenda & HW. Yep, got those at Lowes. I bought a $13 piece of "whiteboard" in the paneling dept., asked them to cut it into 1' x 1' sections and now I have 32 whiteboards and since I have 22 students in my largest class...I have 6 whiteboards for my "announcements" and 3 for gifts. Those boards got an extra touch, some duct tape boarders and some ribbon hot-glued and taped down.
