2 more days. I didn’t accomplish as much as I hoped I would today – but I made some more progress. Each classroom is given two storage cupboards and I managed to clean out and organize 1 of them today. Well – almost. I have to finish the top shelf tomorrow. Then move onto the next one! I have WAY to much stuff and not enough space! So, I’m trying to get rid of things that I don’t use or things I only use sparingly. It’s crunch time – and hard decisions must be made!
Ms. Bennet has been a big help! She’s made multiple sets of names to be used in various ways around the room, helped organize the cubbies for our new group, helped me with some cleaning, and taken everything off the walls and prepped the bulletin boards for the first day of school. She has also taken the children and kept them busy so I can have time to get things done. I couldn’t do it without her!
I think it’s finally hitting home with the children that they only have 2 days left with us. I’ve heard comments the last few days like, “I wish I could stay in your class forever!” and “I don’t want to go to a new school!” I’ve also been getting a ton of hugs (much more than usual) and many of the children have been very clingy! I love this class and it’s soooo hard to let them go – but I know they will do great! I keep reassuring them and being positive…but I know they must be nervous about what lies ahead.
