Getting things ready....

I will say it many times...I am a Pinterest junkie!!!  Today I found a PowerPoint courtesy of Linda du Plessis on Teachers pay Teachers ( ) that helps you plan what to go over on the first day of school.  I have been looking for things to help me on this initial day...and this is the best one I have found yet.  What is even more wonderful is that it is editable.  I used her format but changed the color scheme as well as the clip art including my classroom theme of owls...
I really want to include this little guy in my classroom, especially since I will be teaching Language Arts, its apropos don't you think?  Many of my colleagues I graduated with seem to be getting some headway into getting their classroom ready, but because I am having to work a temporary job I don't have the time I really wish I had to get in my classroom & get it set up.  My last day of working is July 11th, I have to participate in a school retreat on July 12th.  The following week is new teacher orientation, then the week before school is when I can finally focus on my classroom.  I hope this is enough time to get everything I want together, and be organized for the first day of school.  I believe the PowerPoint I edited will help me get on my way.  Here is a couple of examples of the slides I edited to suit my needs; there are a total of 22 slides in all.

I am sooo excited to get in there and get dirty!!!  Onward and upward...nothing but success from here on out (I hope).
