For the past three days, I have been going through file folders, papers, bags, and crates. I've been organizing everything into binders. I ran into a huge problem yesterday though. I ran out of plastic page protectors! I had to start filing them behind the dividers until I can get more. Since I'm moving on Saturday, I can't really afford any added expenses right now. I'm not 100% done, but I'm mostly done. Only a small pile stands between me and crossing it off my to-do list!!!

There's something about an empty classroom that makes one feel sad. After four years of love, laughs, and learning, I have officially moved everything out of my classroom. If you've been following my posts, you would know that I am moving back to my hometown of Buffalo, NY from South Florida. I don't have a job for the next school year and that's a scary thought. I know there is a plan for me though and I have to keep thinking positively that I will have a teaching job again. People don't really move to Buffalo, so the job market in education is extremely competitive! On top of that, there are about eight colleges with teacher education programs.
Alright, now for some happy stuff! I just reached 100 followers, so I will totally have to have a giveaway soon!!! It won't be until next week after my move and things have settled down though. In the meantime, here are two great giveaways to enter.

We made these Beach & Pool Kids from Deanna Jump's Ocean Unit during the last week of school. It was a long project which made it perfect for this time of year. First, we completed the graphs and analyzed the data. Only one kid liked swimming in the ocean while everyone else chose pool. I thought that was interesting since we live next to the Atlantic, but I would have chosen pool too. I don't like the saltwater. I'm sure I won't be saying that once I move back to Buffalo next weekend though.
Here are some pictures of our glyphs!
We had to take a break to go to PE so this is what my classroom looked like!

I'm still not done with reorganizing all of my files, but I have about 1/3 of it done! I have been super busy packing up my room. I have been leaving work after 6 pm every night, my feet are throbbing, and I'm exhausted. Tomorrow is the last day of school (half day), but it's bittersweet because I'm saying goodbye to all of my students for the last time. Here are some photos of one of my binders:
I recycled my file folders by cutting them, punching holes in them, and using them as dividers. This way, I can see the tabs past the plastic sheet protectors (unlike most dividers)!
This is all of the stuff that I took home from my classroom. I think I'm a basket hoarder!
Hope you all have a great night!
