After these messages, we'll be right back!

Hello readers!  My apologies for not updating this since FEBRUARY!  I actually do have a lot I've wanted to post about from March-June but just haven't found the time!  It seemed those months were CRAZY busy at work for me, (but then again, when is it not a crazy time at work???)

Once school ended, I went into camp mode!  I haven't worked camp in 9 years!  It was a blast to have worked at a camp again!  I'll have to blog about some of the amazing / fun things we did at camp too!

After 6 weeks of camp, I taught professional development classes for 2 weeks - on how to use the ActivInspire software.  Had a blast as always!

Before I knew it, it was time to head back to school!  My little kiddos start tomorrow!

Tonight, I will be one of those teachers preparing lessons for tomorrow!  I'm happy my classroom is all ready to go! :-)

In the past, I've gone into my classroom everyday for a few hours, starting at the beginning on August.  Due to work that was happening at my school, I didn't have that luxury this summer.  I was finally able to get into my room the Thursday before our professional week.  I wanted to make the most of it so I had 2 helpers on both Thursday and Friday that week and we accomplished a lot!

Our professional week has come and gone with a few meetings and lots of time to work in our rooms!  I'm happy to say that my room is now ready for my kiddos!  Before I reveal my room, here is what it looked like last year and here is what it looked like 2 years ago.

Here we go!  Ladies and Gentlemen, I now present, Mrs. Lynch's Classroom for the 2015-2016 school year!!!!!!!  


 My Minions Bulletin Board!  I found the idea on Pinterest of course!


Next up, my Instagram board - which I hope to keep up the entire year!  I'll change the hashtag and the photos! I took this idea from The Kindergarten Smorgasboard!

Until next time!
