I've been in my classroom twice over the past few days. Every time I walk in, I get this feeling. I'm sure you've had it too. It's this feeling of OH MY. And YIKES. And BLEH. Because while I really do love all the excitement of back-to-school, I really dislike walking through my classroom door and seeing this table of supplies needing to be put away.
And this counter FULL of books that I hoped would organize themselves over the summer.
And this faded word wall that I promised I'd re-do before August.
So, what do I do when I find myself overwhelmed by my own classroom???
I build towers with my daughter, of course!
This was the most productive thing I accomplished on yesterday's visit, and the only thing that I started and actually finished.
BLEH. Double and triple BLEH.
I know that once I finish all of the less fun jobs, I get to move on to the fun stuff!
I have students coming next week for a before-school science camp.
Between now and next Tuesday I must. tackle. the. mess.
