Hi, Everyone! I am Autumn Morrison. I will be starting my eighth year teaching first grade this fall. I have previously taught preschool, kindergarten, and third grade. I have a store on TpT (The Primary Techie). I make lots of fun learning games. If you have a projector, I have the games for you! 🙂
I have a confession to make – I don’t really like summer very much. I start to get depressed. If I don’t go anywhere for a couple days, I think “what was the point in getting dressed today?” I need to stay busy so I don’t find myself glued to the couch for days. For this reason, I go to school – A LOT! I have been known to spend 16 hour days in my classroom over the summer. YIKES!
Summer planning reminds me of being pregnant. You dream of what this new child (class) will be like. You have all these hopes for the future. You read books to brush-up on the latest studies and research. Setting up the classroom is like getting the nursery ready. You dream of bringing the baby home (first day of school). I love all the planning and hopeful, happy thoughts summer brings.
Teachers at my school make wishlists at the end of the year. This year, I am asking for storage and furniture. Here are some of the goodies on my list:
I asked for two of these big guys. I am a hoarder so I NEED more places to put things!
