First off...I want to congratulate the 2 winners from my give away....Stacy and Jasmin (check your emails for details). And thanks to everyone else who entered...I was super impressed by the turnout. Using rafflecopter to do a give-away was super easy...I will definitely be doing more in the future!
Packing up my classroom is always such a pain! Why do we need to pack everything up every year?! I think (actually, I KNOW...) I have more things in my classroom than in my apartment! I seriously wonder if there is a better way to go about this...and I am seriously considering hiring movers next year to pack up my room for me! Below are some pictures of the mess of a classroom I created while packing/cleaning. I don't know how many times I told myself "it has to get worse before it gets better."
Also, while packing up my room, I had my assistants go through all my file folder type tasks and figure out what pieces were missing. I made up the missing pieces with boardmaker. I am super anal...so of course I had to measure all the file folders and make pieces the exact same size. On my boardmaker document, I also typed the name of each file folder, so my assistants could easily figure out where to put each piece.
Here is my pile of file folders missing pieces....and the new ones ready to be cut and velcroed!
After I got my classroom in pretty good shape, I was off to MN (where my family lives) for a second wedding reception (I was married in Mexico this past spring). It was such a lovely weekend filled with friends, family, dogs, and only a few breakdowns (what can I say....I have a little bridezilla in me!)
So, now I have 3 days off before summer school begins and I plan on enjoying every minute!
