During our morning meeting time we discussed our scheduled for the day, I shared my "About Me" bag, and we talked about some of our classroom routines and procedures. However, I was anxious to find our what my new students were wondering about first grade. Below is a list of some of the things they were wondering:
- Will we have fun?
- Will we learn to read?
- Are we going to use the computers?
- Will our teacher be nice?
- Who will be in our class?
- What will we learn this year?
- Will we play?
- What will our classroom look like?
These were all really good questions. We spent a lot of time talking about the answers to these questions and learning more about first grade. I love the last question (What will our classroom look like?). I explained to my first graders how much work I had done in order to prepare for them and the new school year. I'm happy to report that they love the classroom and they thought it looked great! Take a look at the "after" pictures below and tell us what you think.

What does your classroom look like this year? Is it similar to ours or very different?
