Today is THE DAY—the big reveal! I am so excited and so nervous at the same time. I think that everyone is going to be amazed and very excited about what the future holds for this classroom and the students within it.

Today I worked with my ACTIVboard trying to figure out all the amazing things we can do with it in the classroom. You guys are going to love this piece of technology. One great thing about it is that I can show you Web sites and interact with them.

Today I learned how to use the Document Camera. This piece of equipment is going to be great when we start discussing how to use an iPod and when I want to show pictures from different text books or various items that go along with my curriculum.

Today was an amazing day in my classroom.  All of the student work surfaces were installed along with new round tables and some really cool stools to use at the computer work stations.  Everything arrived except for my new desk 🙁

Check out the pictures of my almost complete classroom.  I am starting to see the big picture and am so excited about school starting in a couple of weeks!!!

When my husband and I walked into my classroom tonight all we could say was WOW!!! The muralist, Gayle, did an amazing job with my classroom walls.  I think my students are going to love it.  I can’t wait to see their faces and hear what they have to say about how my classroom looks.

Well, today was quite a sticky situation, to say the least. I got so excited when I went into the back door of my classroom that I didn’t realize that the tile guys put glue on the floor. Needless to say, I ended up on the ground stuck to the floor yelling for help. Thank goodness I finally got myself unstuck, but I left a blueprint of my body on the floor for the tile guys. Sorry no pictures of this for you to view 🙁
