My school system blocks YouTube, so this is a Vimeo video for you (I don't have internet at my house yet - boo!). I will post a video I took directly after the first day next week. For free Vimeo accounts, you can only post one video a week.
Before you click to see my video, be forewarned that this is the first video on my blog! I'm not sure why I have a valley girl voice. People who know me - do I really sound like that? Also, it kind of ends abruptly. Sorry. All the books and baskets on the shelves under the windows, those were actually all first grade materials, so I didn't get to keep them. The dishes on the student desks - the previous teacher left those for me. So nice. She also left that huge bottle of apple juice by the sink. So nice of her. Haha.
How long does it take you to get set up? Have you ever come into a new classroom that was messy and dirty like mine? What new decor ideas do you have for this year? I'll share all my ideas next week!
