I spend more hours awake in my classroom (Monday - Friday) than I spend awake in my home.
When I get home from school I throw together some supper, collapse on the couch (maybe read what my blog friends have written) and then fall asleep. Someone will wake me up and I go to bed for the rest of the night. I am definitely a morning person during the school year.
Anyway. The lovely Mrs. Reed at Flying into First Grade has these cool get to know you linky parties each Sunday. Sometimes I participate, like today. Yay.
The task at hand is to share my three favorite areas in my classroom.
This is kinda like a morning meeting. I review everyone's job, then I go over the day's schedule. My favorite part is when we "wish well" our absent friends and practice being a star.
Hunk and chunk wall. I love doing this with the kids, and they do, too. (I think.) We review each day, and somedays they do it on their own. They get especially excited when a new sound shows up.
My iPod and Gold Canyon warmer and scent pods. I got an apple scent pod last week, and I got many "oh, your room smells so good." It makes me happy to have my scent warmer going and my iPod playing with more than 100 songs on my favorite playlist. I can start it in the morning and have music all day. Love it.
My favorite places change all the time. (Just like my room arrangement.) Perhaps I need to do this every month so I can love more of my room.
What are your favorite areas? I love looking at your classrooms, they inspire me so much. Thanks Mrs. Reed for another great job and topic for this week.
