Finally got to see my classroom

A couple days ago I got the outside tour of my school and today I got the inside tour!! It was so fun and so overwhelming at the same time. It is has been raining all day so my hair was very huge and I was in ratty clothes running around town. Once we got to school though I met all kinds of people. (I wish I would have known we were going to school today!) I felt awful for looking so crummy but everyone was so warm and inviting I don't think they cared.

Any hoooooo (focus Brittany) I got to see my classroom. I will show pics of the outsides and what not later. My classroom was surprisingly large. I was impressed with how much storage there is. I know just have to get everything organized!! I was left with lots and lots of things which is honestly a little crazy. Its a good thing I got here so early so that I can go through everything and figure out what I want to keep and what I need to get rid of.  

Today was quite interesting because not only did I see my classroom but also I made my first official teacher purchase. It was silly. I had bean bag chairs in my room that were being taken away, but the lady felt sorry for me and offered me some new ones, which I gladly accepted of course!! I even got to choose which colors I wanted for covers.  Then I was shown the other 4th grade teachers room. She had a wooden stool which I was fond of and the principal asked me if I wanted one, again of course I said yes!  Little did I know that this was something I had to order and then later fill out a form for. But still fun.  I also got my room key so I really do feel official.  Ok now for the long awaited pictures!

The room apparently used to have a jungle theme....I am not impressed. It was a little too much for me.  I cant wait to get in and put my own stamp on things ;)
