Nineteen Boys & Four Girls...Classroom Pictures too! {And some other this and that's}

Hey Friends,

We are on our way to the first day of a new school year!  The classroom is all put together, I've meeted {not a word, I know - but it's cute, right?} and greeted, and now I'm ready and rarin' to go!

I do have an unusual breakdown this year of 19 boys and 4 girls.  No lie and no joke.  I'm a wee bit concerned - but an even bigger part of me is excited.  I have two boys of my own and I do seem to "get" them.  I almost wish they had put those four girls in the other classes and left me with all boys.  That would have been really interesting... {maybe even cool?}

One thing I do know is we'll be incorporating a lot of movement into our day {which is good for everyone}.  I have a Brain Break document that I created last year and shared {here}. We'll be doing a lot of dancin' and a movin' and a groovin' throughout the day!  Maybe I'll take off some extra LB's that way! HA!

Here are some pictures of my 2013-2014 classroom...




I also wanted to let you know about a neat opportunity over at Mardel.com  for ONE DAY ONLY. Online customers who purchase one 12-count set of their exclusive "Renewing Minds Collection" file folders - Mardel will donate a duplicate set to a school affected by the May 20th tornado in Moore, Oklahoma.  This offer is only valid until midnight tonight {September 1st} and can be found online {here}.

Aren't they cute?


I hope you'll consider purchasing some cute file folders - it may seem small, but little glimmers of happiness can make a teacher's day - especially after such devastation.  

Tuesday's the day!!!!!  Woo hoo!!!!!

Toodles!

  4. I love your outlook on having 19 boys. I teach four year olds and last year I had 13 boys and 3 girls. Like you I have two boys of my own. I really enjoyed all the boys and we had a great year. I will say that we were up and moving a lot. I also do a lot of hands on activities. Have a great year.

  6. Your room looks great! I am impressed that you are so excited to have that many boys. I would be terrified. Heheh. I hope that you have an awesome year with all your students.

  7. I have 15 boys and 6 girls this year. I wish I would have none earlier so I could have done more of a boys' theme in my classroom. The group of boys are so funny. They love to tell me all of their hunting stories. Good luck with your group this year.

  10. I went back to your brain break post and downloaded your freebie that lists a variety of songs. While checking yours out I found one called "The Skeleton Dance" by super simple songs. Think you might like it!

  11. Oh my, that's a lot of boys!!! I agree-- they should have just given you an all boy room :) I'm sure you won't miss the friendship drama this year, though! You are welcome to browse through my brain breaks playlist on MentorMob if you need some more ideas (http://www.mentormob.com/learn/i/brain-breaks/the-gummy-bear-song)! Have a wonderful school year!!!

  12. Thank you for the brain break download!!! I have 13 boys and 7 girls this year, so we need to move more often!!! Do you know if it possible to download videos from youtube to your computer so that you don't always have to log onto youtube???
