My teacher bud had a parent give her a stack of pre-cut circular scrapbook paper. She came to me asking for an idea to use it. I started bouncing around ideas and I came up with "SPOTTED... Great work". She wanted an area to display her students' work you see. Well, I then liked my thought so much that I created a bulletin board that read "SPOTTED in first grade". I emailed my students' parents and requested that they send me a photo of their firstie. I then displayed the photos inside the dots that I cut with my handy dandy Silhouette machine. Anyway, I was proud of myself so I wanna show it all off. Sometimes we all gotta give ourselves some props you know! ;). What will your back to school board look like?

So, I've officially been back at the teaching game since August 6. Can I just state that I AM EXHAUSTED! Every year I seem to discount exactly how tiring the first of the school year can be. Between prepping your classroom , Meet the Teacher Night, actually teaching your new students, and managing your own household... I'm tired just typing that! I have Curriculum Night in a few days and I'm hoping when that is history I will finish readjusting to teacher life. I miss summer but I am excited for this school year. I've got a great bunch of firsties that I get the honor of working with. Sigh. Smile. And now for a peek at the back to school board I showcased...
