If It's SUNDAY
It MUST be time for
NIBITS for NEWBIES!
What am I packing?
NO! NOT "THAT!"
WHAT ARE YOU
PACKING IN BOXES
FOR THE END
OF THE SCHOOL YEAR??
Here is my list:
It's ALL about ME!
What will I need the first week?
My TE's...Sticky notes inside to remind my "aging" brain...what I INTEND to do!
What MATERIALS will I need to accomplish this?
USE THOSE STICKY NOTES INSIDE YOUR TE!
You will NOT remember months from now... what you are thinking about TODAY!
Use the next few weeks to make your NOTES!
Don't forget...hide a few
water bottles, mints, chocolate, and Tylenol
for the first week back...FOR YOU!
Never know how that FIRST WEEK will go!
Student materials ( packets, papers, journals, etc ).
RUN THEM NOW!
( Nothing feels better than pulling out MUCH NEEDED
Whew! SO glad I prepped these BEFORE school was out!!
Get some puzzles, games, blocks, etc. out.
THEY WILL NOT BE INDEPENDENT!
Have a few things ready so they can have "down time"...
while YOU are doing ONE-TO-ONE assessing!
You know you will HAVE TO...prepare for IT!
Last....MANY BOXES for centers, games, things you need to go through
I know you NEED these..
You will "SURVIVE" looking at them LATER!
( YEAH, right!)
after a RELAXING Summer...
the thought of coming back
and redoing everything in a day or two is
Breathe...relax...make your lists...stick to them...and PREP AWAY!
The payoff is HUGE!
Now...where did I pack that STAPLER?
* PS...I just found out I have three weeks to pack up
MY ENTIRE CLASSROOM!
I am getting NEW Carpet!
I am happy...I think!
PACK UP 26 years of stuff?
In 3 weeks?
Time to PURGE!
( My Materials...HAHA)
I think I need a LOT MORE BOXES!
Hi HO..HI HO...It's off to pack I go!
