Thanks so much to my followers who have stayed with me through this process they call grieving!! It's still really hard for me to deal with, but I'm working on it. My mom was one of my 3 official followers, and I remember the week before she died she told me how proud she was of the fact that I started a blog. So, in the spirit of my mom, I'm going to try to get back into the world of daily blogging. I know that's what she would want!
I'd like to share with you some pictures of my finished (almost) classroom. Since mom died two days before school started, I missed the entire first week with my Littles. I'm still in the process of catching up!
Growing Kinders blog and just had to try it out for myself! I had a hard time having parents send in labels, so I recruited members of my family. My mom was a big help with this project, and I'm glad I get to remember her every time I walk through my classroom door! I also found a great resource to add labels, since I was having a hard time finding them. Joey Barnes has a great Environmental Print ABCs Freebie over on TPT, and I used that freebie to fill in some of my letters. If you look closely, you can see that some letters (like I,U,V) really needed the help of Joey's freebie, so thanks a zillion Joey!!!
Name Game that I blogged about a few weeks ago.
Due to everything that has happened in my life lately, I TOTALLY missed posting pictures of the awesome package I received from my Mystery Blogger for the Back to School Blogger exchange. My AMAZING partner was Kelly Brown, a kindergartner teacher from NC and fellow blogger! She did a superfantabulous job of finding items to go with my theme of Dr. Seuss and dragons!! Thanks so much Kelly!
Thanks again for bearing with me through this process! I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into Room 130, and I will be adding more pictures as the room changes. I'd like to leave you with a shot of my furbaby Isis, who was spayed on Monday. She definitely does not like the Cone of Shame!!
