A very successful first day of school!

My first day was great!!! I am teaching 1st grade for the first time, and I have a feeling that I am going to love it!

I welcomed my students with a goodie bag and a beautiful message.
 I love this message so much, that I framed it and hanged it on the classroom wall! 
We did one of my favorite activities. It was about feelings. The students needed to describe how they felt on their first day of school. It was perfect for our book "El regreso de la maestra del pantano negro"

I could not go home without decorating my bulletin boarding! So, here is a picture of how it looks right now!

You can find this cute craftivity for free HERE!

Have a great week! And if you are a 1st grade teacher, feel free to share your ideas with me!!! ;)

Making progress!

Last week I was super busy getting my classrooms ready and helping my hubby too with his classroom. My husband teaches high school, so we have different perspectives on how to decorate a classroom!! LOL!
I want to share my hubby's classroom before and after.
 I love the way it looks now! What do you think?

OK back to my classroom progress. I have my word walls set.

I LOVE my library this year!! It looks so welcoming that I wish I could stay there the whole day!

My school theme this year is "Learning is sweet" so I got inspire and decorated my door with sweet lollipops!

I am still working with some labels and Spanish phrases, but I am almost done.

I will officially start Staff Development tomorrow, so I will try to find the time between meetings to start planning my lessons!

 Today and tomorrow are the perfect days to do some shopping on TPT. You can find some fun lessons and enjoy the BIG sale! All my products will have up to 28% off!!
