The upcoming school year will bring with it many changes (and I'm not just talking students). We will be adding specialties (spanish, art, pe with a REAL pe teacher!! etc). We have extended our school day. There will now be a 'wall' of some sorts separating my class from my neighbor (which is actually a good thing). Had I known it was going to look so nice, I would've opted for a wall last year! Oh we will be going with a school-wide theme this year as opposed to my room being the Kindergarten room, it will be called something else. I will have another new partner. In fact, we will be having a whole bunch of new teachers this year due to all the specialties and the staff changes that occurred this past school year.

I also finally finished my goldie scarf. I got to the point where I didn't have anything else to work on so I picked it back up again. It's already finished. I just haven't taken a photo of it yet. Currently I am working on a shawl for my teacher assistant. Here it is so far:
There has been some reading. I've actually ready 10 books this year so far but according to Goodreads, I am one book behind. Sigh..
And now here are some shots of things during the 2012-2013 school year since I spent a greater part of my time at school!
star lantern (This was the prototype for a project the hubs, my student teacher, teacher asst, and I worked on with a group of K-3rd grade students.
One of the points on the star lantern led to the making of this steel candle flame. There's another one that sits atop a huge candle.
The biggest banana slug I've ever seen...

In the Spring, we partnered with our 2nd and 3rd grade buddies and did some up-cycle art with a ton of reyclables.
It was a VERY busy year and I'm hoping that the upcoming year doesn't take over my life as much as this one did! And though I'm not as present as I once was in the blog world, I am constantly thinking up blog posts in my head!!
