Back to School Journal Prompts

I've started writing lesson plans for the beginning of the year so I've been thinking about my "Back to School Journal Prompts".  Take a look:

 Here are the concepts covered in the prompts:

 Here are a few examples for each subject:

I would love for you to check it out.  I'm excited and already have them ready to use!

I report to back to school next Monday, my new little firsties come next Thursday!  Ahhhhhhh!

How much longer do you have?

Warning - random pics!

So, I've been working in my classroom quite a bit the last couple of weeks.  I actually really enjoy my time to work in my room during the summer.  I have plenty of time to go through things and think through things that I don't have time to during the school year.  I've been focusing on organizing curriculum.  I took some random pics of my room to share with you.

So please tell me that your desks look like this in the summer:
 I always put all my tubs in one place so I can see what I have when I'm organizing.  Does this mean I have a problem? Am I a "tub" hoarder?

I bought these little chairs at Academy for $4.99 each!  I'm so excited to have them in my reading center this year.

 OMG! Have you seen these yet?  I have like a bazillion Mercer Mayer books in my classroom.
I love Kohls!!!!

 This is what my desks and floor have looked like for awhile.  I've been going through all my center activities and organizing them.

 The next two pics are what my team and I have been working on like crazy people this summer.  Organizing all of our units for our reading series.

 This is my messy table.  Well, this actually looks a lot cleaner than it did a few days ago.  (Gotta keep some snacks around - right!?!? I'm loving these strawberry almonds - delicious!)

 So my daughters always come to my classroom with me.  This is what kept them entertained this afternoon.  Uno and Dr. Pepper!

Well, thanks for making it this far through all my randomness.  I don't have a whole lot to blog about because this is about all I've been doing! :)

What have you been working on?

Have a great week!
