Goodbye Rm. 419

As of 3:00 this afternoon, I am on summer vacation.  I also had to say goodbye to my classroom today.  Due to my move to third grade, I have to change classrooms.  I have been in this classroom for four years which is the longest amount of time I've been in the same room.  In my 10 years of teaching I've been in 6 different rooms so it was nice to settle into a single room for a while.  This room has been my home away from home for the last 4 years.  I love this room.

Because of the change in grade levels, I spent the last few days separating my personal materials from the school's fifth grade materials.  That was a dreadful task.  I did however throw a lot of stuff away, which was nice. Then I had to pack pretty much my entire room into boxes to prepare for the move.  Classrooms have not been assigned yet so I was unable to move anything out of the room.  I think I know where my new room will be and I'm not excited about the location.  It is on the main hall and every class will need to pass it to go to lunch and out for recess.  Therefore there will be a lot of extra noise that I'm not looking forward too.

Even though I am looking forward to teaching third grade again the process of packing and the thought of having to move everything in August is not a happy thought.  But being in a grade level I love will make it all worth it.

So I want to say goodbye to my beloved classroom, but along with the move comes positive changes which I'm super excited about.

Goodbye Rm 419!

On a brighter note, I'm obviously looking forward to next year.  I've already started creating things for my classroom next year.  I will be sharing a lot of things this summer.
