100th Day and A New Classroom Makeover (Sort of)!

This year is truly flying by!  The 100th day of school has come and gone.  Sad, I know.  It's my last time to celebrate the hundredth day at this school.  I decide to get dressed up like a 100 year old just like my students.  I wish I could post pics of what they looked like because they went ALL out!  One student had bushy eyebrows, mustache, hat and a big brown wooden cane.  He was adorable!  Check out these pics.  Not too shabby for a 100 year old!

For the past 2 weeks my life has been in complete chaos, but I would have it no other way.  My class had to move out of our class because our classroom was being painted.  Shudder!  Can you imagine being uprooted from your home away from home and transported to another classroom that was just plain BLAH.  No pretty decorations, no technology, chairs and desks of all different sizes, and just no resources whatsoever.  I had to tote my little rolling cart full of rings to keep my kids learning while our room was beautified for 2 days.  Look at the chaos!

I'm still in the process of putting it back together, but I'm not sure if I am going to put anything back up.  Since I'll be leaving in June I may just put up posters and anchor charts about what we are studying.  Of course, my bulletin boards will still be kid-created.  Notice the moving boxes below.  Time to begin the packing.  :(

Lastly, I leave you with a pic of my sweet Sydnee.  We were out of school Tuesday-Friday for the snowstorm/ice storm that just hit NC.  Oh, we had a blast.  We are not looking forward to having to make up the days though.  Good-bye Spring Break!

The good news is that warmer weather is on the way!  Bring on the heat!  Have an amazing week.


  1. Hi ,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is: 



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
