L on the other hand!! Elementary school teachers have a lot of things to do to prepare their room for their students. L always feels a little overwhelmed (more so this year since the custodians just finished her room!), so K, E, and I all joined Ms. L to help her with some of her room preparation. In fact, we spent four hours there earlier this week. (And she is by no means done! )
We got her Word Wall put up. (It is actually a chalkboard covered in paper.)
E put L's calendar corner and reading center together. Her white board is still under the sheet.
I was in charge of her classroom library. We both use her Starbooks bulletin board. K and I put them together last year. I knew the HS kids would like it, and Liz figured the 1st graders and their parents would, too. I made her that cute little cafe curtain last year. (Mine looks pretty plain by comparison!) This was one thing that was a repeat from last year. Setting up her library baskets is kind of a pain, so I was glad I didn't have to figure out a new bulletin board.
K spent a lot of time making L's Birthday area. She doesn't have a bulletin board here, so she "created" one with paper and border stuck to the wall. She also covered L's door with paper and border for her "Back To School" welcome.
