Look what I found

I sent out an e-mail last week to some parents at school asking for help in my new room. I have not yet finished packing up my old room, but I need to clear out enough space in the new room to put my boxes and such.

The two moms who showed up this morning were awesome. We got a lot done in a short amount of time. There is a lot to go through. I found ink pens used for calligraphy. I found supplies to do wood burning. The moms found a receipt for ribbon purchased in 1970.

As we started to clear out the old cabinets that I am getting rid of I started to get nervous about the space. There are lots of cabinets and drawers in the new room, but there is a lot of “stuff” to deal with as well.

Then I found it.

Okay so I knew it was there, but this closet had been locked. I didn’t have the key, but I figured it was the same as the tiny little closet next to it. I finally got it opened today.

It is huge.

It needs a lot of work. I’ve already gotten rid of the broken plastic bins in the center. It made my day though to find it! I have a big job ahead of me, but knowing I actually have storage space and supplies is a huge help!

This morning I also covered another teacher’s class. The students were supposed to make observations about the things they see outside. We were out for about five minutes when we saw this:

It was pretty neat. It is not often that you observe the Goodyear Blimp flying right overhead during a science lesson!

I’ve been researching lots of options for next year. I am looking for feedback on Gaggle and eChalk. Does your school use these services? Thoughts? Experiences? Likes/dislikes? Thanks!

  1. That closet space is awesome! That is amazing-and so nice that you are cleaning it out now instead of waiting until the beginning of the school year!!

    I will have to check out gaggle...I don't know much about it! :) I will be curious to check back and see the comments as to what people think about the different programs!
