This is my daughter over a decade ago. Yes, she was my first grade student! This was a time I will always treasure. Not many moms get to experience this and I was blessed to have been able to do so.
Gabrielle sketched this charcoal owl scene and gave it to me in the summer of 2013. It was the beginning of the OWL theme that took over my classroom! BTW: My students thought it was a HOOT! I will have to post all of the cute little owls they gave me throughout the school year:)
Some old pics from a couple of years ago. Thought I would post these so I can compare them to how my classroom will look for 2016-2017!
A couple of years ago I had my computer station set up in this fashion. I had so many big books and I wanted to display them. To help with the situation, my husband went to our local hardware store and purchased supplies and installed rain-guttershelves along the wall where the computers were once located. The total cost was a little over a hundred dollars for the shelf fix and it was worth every buck!
