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.

Like Mother...Like Daughter I suppose. My daughter has decided to make the brand new family craft area...a business. Yes, with the help of her friend they are designing classes to teach art to "younger" students. I'm posting this to Criss Cross Classroom because there are some cute tips in the organizing we set up in just one day. Before
