Classroom Move Finished and Curriculum Night Freebies

As promised here are the finished pictures of Virginia's 1st grade bilingual classroom.

This cheveron carpet from Big Lots seems to be a big hit with teachers this year.  I have the same carpet in my classroom.
Curriculum Night Freebies
For Curriuculum Night in the past I have passed out apples with this note.  Since our school has put lots of restrictions on food I decided not to give out anything with food either.  It was a sore subject with some parents.  Click on the image below to open in Google Docs.
So this year I had some extra flashcards and deck of cards from the $1 section at the Target.  So I had a raffle of those items after we talked about the importance of students knowing their basic facts.
Now that we have been in school for a week and half  and Curriculum Night is out of the way.  Virginia and I hope to back more to post about what we are doing in our classrooms.
