I only have a few minutes. My sister and I are going out to do some dancing tonight since it's my last official weekend of summer. I spent all day in the classroom and things are finally coming together! I uploaded this cute writing process pencil poster on TpT last night and thought you might be interested. You can get it by clicking on the picture below!

I have been working diligently the last few weeks to get my classroom set up for my new group of kiddos! I cannot wait to meet them! A few days ago, I sent out my "Welcome!" postcards and included a link to our classroom website so that students and parents could get a head start looking at what the year might be like. Of course, the "flavor" doesn't come until the kids do - but it's up to us teachers to get them excited about going back to school. I hope the website does just the thing.
You can click on the graphic above to go to our class website. I've included a welcome, class supply list, and information about me and my assistant on the website. One thing I added at the last minute and really built up was my Classroom Expectations page. Since this is my second year teaching and I struggled with classroom management last year, I spent a lot of the summer getting my plan together. I though sharing it online with my students and parents might be a good idea.
I also added a classroom blog so that the students (and I...) can update with pictures and words about what we're working on and learning in the room. It's a perfect way for parents to see what we're doing! And I have a feeling the kids will love getting on there to show off their stuff!
Do you have a classroom website? How do you utilize it? Is it mainly for student use or home communication? I'd love to see it/hear all about it! Share!
