They Met the Teacher :)

Well, it's official! I have met my new class for this school year. :)

Yesterday was our "Meet the Teacher" and I have to say....I can already tell that I am going to have a FABULOUS year! The parents were wonderful and the kiddos looked eager and excited...and CUTE!

I have a pretty equal amount of boys vs girls and several parents who I've taught other kids of theirs before. I had a lot of the parents pull me aside and whisper "We are SOOOOO glad we got you!", and that made my day!

Here are a few pics of my classroom ALL ready for the kids!

I had a goodie bag and information packet at each spot waiting on the kids :) If you wanna see what my goodie bags were, you can check out my blog post on that HERE!

This is my new reading corner where I'll spend time with small groups during our reading time. :) OH, and "Goober" the gorilla is sitting ready to greet students. He's our new class mascot!

And this is my newly redesigned classroom library! :)

And, lastly, this is my WONDERFUL Aide on the left....and me on the right! We've worked in the same classroom together for 5 years now :)

It has been a VERY busy week for me getting all caught up and ready for back to school, so I haven't been able to blog hop and stalk as much as I'm used to! I miss you guys, but I promise I'll get back into the swing of it all soon!

Don't forget TOMORROW is the last day to enter in my HUGE giveaway!!! Click here to enter if you haven't yet!  It looks like the gift card to Target is the most WANTED prize, but most of you said that you'd love to win ANY of them! They are all great! :)

Winners will be announced MONDAY evening!!! Stay tuned :)
