They're Baaaaaaaccccckkkkkkk!!!!!!!!!! & Classroom Pictures

We have been back at school for 3 and a 1/2 days now!  It was so fun to see all those smiling faces coming down the hallway on the first 1/2 day.
We both have VERY sweet, but chatty classes this year so far.  We are already working on convincing them that actually listening when the teacher is talking is a great skill to develop!  I also have a few "sparkly" kiddos who are going to keep me laughing a lot this year!

We wanted to share a few pics of what our classrooms look like this year!

Here is a peek into my classroom...

Here is Katie's room!

Our keychains are one of our favorite things that we do in 2nd grade! We give the kiddos a key ring at the beginning of the year with their name on it. Then we add die cuts or "keys" that we have made, throughout the year. For example, on the first day they got a first day of school keychain. We give them out for bdays, field trips, perfect spelling tests, lost teeth, etc. and at the end of the year the kiddos have a great memory of all their 2nd grade memories!
What do you do for classroom memories??
