Tomorrow I will host students in my resource classroom for the first time this year. Many of them have visited or worked with me in past years. Some are new to the school and my room.
I've been running around the house tonight - gathering pillows, writing plans, and adding books to my already bulging book bag.
I can't decide what to bring and what to leave at home. It's crazy - I'm not packing for a trip... I'm preparing for students, and school started weeks ago!
I dug out a book I created in my reading program about my life as a reader. I found my childhood copies of Charlotte's Web and Blubber. I'm completely bummed that most of my picture books are at my parents' house.
I can't wait to meet or become reacquainted with my students. They are the reason I come to work every day, and I've missed them!
Now if I could just fall asleep....
