112/365 - One Dolla!

Today I made my first purchases as a teacher. I went to Dollar Tree first and got 84 things (for $84, isn't that something?!?) and then I went to the uber overpriced teacher store for got a few more things and spent another $30. I'm feeling overwhelmed today but I am starting to feel better because I actually have stuff in my room now and I got teacher books and pacing guides. I'm going to split my time next week in the other first grade classrooms and getting mine set up. I should know who my students are early in the week and I might be able to pull them for a little bit to do an activity and get to know them before they are officially mine. I need to do a few more observations before I can figure out what exactly I need to do academics wise. Setting up my room wise, I'm not terribly worried. Except for maybe centers... I need to figure out what that's all about. I'm really excited this is all happening. I have a lot of great friends and coworkers and I think this year will be great. I've always had a thing for the older kids, but my mom has always told me she thinks I belong with the little ones. We'll definitely see.
