Back to school!

I am so excited to be returning to school. I have been busy, busy, busy setting up my classroom. It is really starting to come together.

Thanks to my friend Anne Marie I have loads of super cute Ikea storage boxes to keep everything in order. I am picking up more of them tomorrow. Apparently she is helping to facilitate some OCD tendencies?! Hopefully it will make life easier for both myself and the wonderful SNA assisting in my room this year.

Here is a peak at the Bulletin Board outside my room. It was super difficult to get a good shot as the corridor is narrow.

As you can see I “tagged” each owl with a child’s name. I just need to add my “Momma” owl and we are pretty much done.

I don’t usually post photos of my room but I wanted to show you all how “cute” it turned out 😉

Are you ready for school? I am praying that my interactive whiteboard will be repaired early next week!!! All of my classroom preparation over the summer is in a digital format. I have tonnes of resources all on “pause” until it is repaired. It will be an interesting first day without all of those resources. Looks like I will have to go “old school” and make cardboard flashcards etc. Yikees!

Have fun,

Miss Mernagh 🙂

    Hi Miss Mernagh,

    I really love your baby owls in the tree – they look great! I am studying a Bachelor of Learning Management (Early Childhood) at Central Queensland University in Mackay, Queensland, Australia. My daughter, Hope, is also a wonderfully creative pre-prep (kindergarten) teacher , much loved by her students. Our school year begins on January 29th, so she is busy in her classroom today, preparing for her new students. They’re only little once, so let’s make it as much fun as it can be and give them some really joyful memories! Getting back to your owls … I love to be creative too, so I appreciate all the effort you have gone to in creating your noticeboard. Love your enthusiasm in creating a blog and sharing resources also. I will be using some of your classroom rules in an example classroom website for an e-learning assignment. Thankyou for these! It won’t be finished until the due date (29th January), but the link is:

    Keep up the great work!

    Mrs Gately

      Hi Fiona,
      How great to hear from you! It’s wonderful to connect with like minded people from all over the world. It is definitely one of the most exciting parts of blogging.
      I was thrilled to see my Classroom Rules Posters on your sample classroom website! I even took a screen shot 😉 I look forward to seeing how your assignment progresses.
      I had a friend of mine staying with me from NSW this week. She, like you, is on holidays and awaiting the start of term. She gifted my class a copy of Possum Magic which was a great hit. We have spent this week learning lots of fun fact about Possum’s.
      I was busy making Anzac cookies today. My kids are looking forward to trying them I read the story tomorrow. With 33 pupils in my class I spent a good chunk of the morning baking 😉
      Please keep in touch. I would love to hear any suggestions on games and resources that you use in your classroom.

      Miss Mernagh 🙂
