Sneakin' and a-Peekin'

I am alive and well, just very, very tired.  Last week was my first week of school and it went pretty well.  I think I *might* be on the verge of a sinus infection or really bad cold and I just feel wiped out so  I am going to keep this short.

I am not quite ready for classroom pictures, but I am close.  I have lots of little details to take care of first!I will post them here eventually.

I thought I would do little sneak peeks into different areas first and then post the grand reveal later.  It sounds good to my medicine-addled mind.

This is the top of my cubbies with my guided reading texts.  I posted a shot of that earlier.  Here it is halfway finished.

I have cleaned up the top and moved all those binders.  I am going to focus on the TOP of this piece of furniture.

I have already posted a couple times about my birthday balloons and ceramic cupcakes with erasers.  Here is the final result.   I think it is pretty cute and the kids seemed thrilled.  We have out first birthday coming up in about a week so we will have to see how it goes!

The sweet student jar is also kept on the top of the cubbies.  I think I have already wrote about this but can't find the post.  Basically at the end of the day the student of the day randomly draws a name out of a bag.  If the student whose name was drawn has good behavior and hasn't pulled a stick (our behavior system) all day then they choose a piece of candy.  If the student has pulled a stick then the name goes back in the bag for another opportunity another day.

This is our whole group compliment system.  I found this idea on Pinterest from the blog 2nd Grade Rocks!  The kids love it and I think it is super cute!

And here is the grand reveal...the whole top of the cubbies!

I also keep our stickers for correct morning work and a cozy lamp here as well!
