First Day Jitters Blog Hop!

Head on over to join the First Day Jitters Blog Hop! :)

What am I Jittery about?

1. The first day always has a lot of confusion. I find it so hard to sort the MASSIVE amount of supplies! I would love to find a handy dandy way of keeping track of who brings in what so I can make sure that almost every student brings in all of their supplies! So, I am going to create some kind of checklist...more to come on that. Also, my first graders never know how they are getting home from school. So in my letters this year I included a transportation form(comment if you want a copy). I asked the parents to send it in on the first day of school. Then, I will put it on their name tag in case they get lost in the hallway!

2. I am a super organized person. So I get jittery that all of my materials are not ready. I tend to over prepare for the first day and I never get everything done!

3. I get the jitters as soon as I see my class list and you hear the horror stories! eeek!

Enjoy and link up!

Donors Choose Project Help! :)

Hello all! Well I am definitely summer loving....however have you every gotten to the point where you are done doing tons of fabulous things and are getting bored? Well...that is me. I am ready to get back into the swing of things. I am reading some awesome responsive classroom books and just ordered a new one on Bullying Prevention! Check it out. However,I am trying sooooo incredibly hard to get my project fully funded on donors choose! I am asking for a document camera! I have been to the Writing Workshop Conferences in NYC at Columbia University and have seen the awesome effects of how they work. I believe that a document camera would be an awesome tool for my 1st grade readers and writers and would help them really make connections with texts. Please take a look at my project...Here is the link: Please, Please, Please if you can help me out or know someone who can it would be greatly appreciated! This is my first time posting on donors choose and would love to have my project for my 1st graders fully funded! Thank you! :)
