Last night’s Open House was very SUCCESSFUL!!! My classroom was PACKED with nearly 100 people during the hour, and 26 out of 30 students in my first grade class showed up with their families – parents, siblings, and relatives! It takes a lot of time and effort over weeks to get the classroom ready, so I am thankful to see that so many of them made the time and effort to attend Open House. I was so proud to watch my students show off what they have learned in first grade as their families celebrated their accomplishments and hard work with them! Checking off Open House means the end of the school year is just around the corner – 15 days with the students, 16 days including our last teacher day on June 9th! Enjoy a walkthrough of my first grade classroom in photos with the checklist that I make for students and families as a guide! (For the safety of children, I had to blot out as many names and faces as possible.)
