So my life is going to be pretty much jammed packed this summer!!! We're writing the elementary art curriculum for the district, developing an inservice to introduce the new curriculum/standards/pacing guide to the elementary art teachers of Nashville(over 100 of us), I'm on the state text book adoption team for art, I'm teaching at an art camp....OH...AND WE'RE HAVING A BABY THE FIRST PART OF JULY!?!?!?!?!!? (not to mention that my daughter is full out terrible 2's!!!) I usually go back to school mid/late July and start working on my room. I hand make all my bulletin boards & boarders, and it takes a good bit of time. So I decided to start now while my 4th graders are away at camp(and I have an extra planning time). It's odd doing it now while I'm still looking at this years room....but I know I'll appreciate it when I come back to set my room up!!
