However, Hobby Lobby's finally put their scrapbook paper backs on sale, so I picked a up a pack of primary colors, and got busy. :)
Ever since I first pinned this from kbkonnected , I have been in LOVE. I plan on putting it right outside my door, so the students really have to look at it every morning when they come in. :)
This sign pretty much sums up exactly how I would like my students to feel when they walk into my room. I want my classroom to be a safe place where they feel loved respected, valued, and cared for. My parents went through a pretty nasty split up while I was in elementary school/middle school and school was always my safe haven. I could walk into the doors of my classroom and just escape the nastiness that was my home life. I added a few terms like mathematicians, readers, and writers because I am a self contained classroom. Then as walking the dog I realized I should probably add historians because well I do teach Social Studies. I'll probably go back and make "When You Enter This Classroom" in a bigger font too.
In other news, my Guide Math book should be arriving today, finally! My package got lost somehow in the facility and I'm just now expecting to get a package that I ordered June 20th. Poor played, Amazon. Poor played. I typically LOVE Amazon, but I think they are punishing me for selecting Super Saver Shipping. HOWEVER, there is a Amazon facility within 45 minutes of my house, super saver shipping is usually about the same as normal shipping for me. ;)
