I have been up at school almost everyday for the past two weeks. I have had some help from former and future students! I am a little OCD (know as CDO at our house -- alphabetize everything!!) So I always ask former kiddos that are fully trained in my library organization to help me out. This is especially useful when you move rooms and things are in boxes. You can see one of my helpers is Watson!! He loves to visit school and run around, checking in on all the teachers.
I managed to get the desks arranged into squares today. You'll notice that there's a hole in the middle of the desk arrangement. As I was strolling through Target on my daily visit I found these little babies. I think they will fit perfectly in the middle of the desks and hold pencils and erasers! Thank you Target Dollar Spot!
You may have also noticed all the boxes on the desks in the middle of the room. Those would be the enVision consumables. We are very fortunate to have a rockin' math curriculum, sadly the downside is that all the consumables come in prepackaged sets of 24. As a grade level we have 3 sets of 24, do the math --- yep, that's 72 consumables. Did I mention we are expecting 80 kids for next year? We are 8 short! I am in a large district and we are budget conscious/responsible. Translation ---- other schools have extra student consumables that they need to send into our district office. Are you following along? The district will then gather extras from all of our elementary schools and send the 8 we need to us. Now, what do you think the chances are that any one at those extra type of schools have sorted anything??? HMMMMMM......... I am betting we won't start the year with the correct amount of consumables!! Oh well, it's too soon to panic!
I am off to take darling child number three to get top braces! She's so excited, God Bless her! Here's a peek at her bottom braces she got about a month ago. Well, they are hard to see but they are there! Here's a shout out to Fry Orthodontics! If you are in the KC area, I strongly encourage you to check them out. We have been thrilled with the results -- and we are on child three now!
