Ok. So, if you missed my post yesterday, I revealed that I got a new job, in a new district, teaching a new grade, and a new subject. So, pretty much, everything about what I'll be doing next school year is new. I'm SO excited. (If you did miss it- I'll be teaching 3rd grade ELA... which I looooove!)
I went in today to see my new room!
It currently looks like this:
So, I'm itching to get in and make it positively Bainbridge! I LOOOOOOVE the "X" of wire across the room. In my current room, I have run a length of YARN, yes YARN, across my windows that is "securely" fastened at either side of the windows! So far, there have been no catastrophes but I'm super jazzed about the security of the wire!
I bought two of these on ebay just now... not realizing I was ordering from a seller in the UK... so, after the conversion to US dollars... they cost a pretty penny. BUT... I think I'm going to do less of a "thing" theme and more of a color theme in my new room.
I'm really digging all of this "Poppin' Patterns" stuff from Creative Teaching Press and I think it would match well with my new buntings. What do you think?
What do you think? Can I enter my own "rename my blog" contest? Not that I don't love everyone's suggestions... BUT... the name "Bunting, Books, and Bainbridge" hit me last night. And now I've bought those buntings... and my blog has buntings... and my last name is Bainbridge... and I'll be teaching ELA which, you know, requires books!
Could that work? Is it stupid? Tell me what to do!
If you all do approve the name change, I'll select one of the entrants at random on Friday to still win the $25.00 worth of products from my TpT store. And if you do not approve the name change because there's something you like better, keep sending names my way!
