Well I made it through my first cycle with 723 students and 28 sections! The first day was exhausting, but I realized later that it was just because of the first day craziness that was added to with the opening of a new building! We love the new building, but still have a few students who get a little lost. The first class with each section was all about the rules, finding the nearest bathroom, getting seating charts and coloring the folders that will hold each student's artwork. After 28 classes, I was sick of talking about the rules!!! Thank goodness we can get on to the fun stuff now!
Here's a picture of my room, I am still working on a few posters:
