B2S To Do List Linky

Hello all! I can't believe this Monday I go back to work...It has been a whirlwind these last couple of days. I had all my PreK stuff and book storaged in my aunt's garage and I still need to go back for more sorting (woe is me!) On another note, I found out one of my 3rd grade friends is moving to Kindergarten with me (WINNING!) She is a bit overwhelmed of the change but I reassured her I would help her out as much as I can once Monday comes..I also requested a larger Kinder class to store all my junk materials and my principal agreed to move me into a bigger classroom! I could not be more thrilled..I was hoping for a larger classroom to set up my teepee I purchased a couple of years ago from Kirkland's during my internship.

On to the list! I have linked up with Ms. Shope's Class for my B2S to do list..I have so many needs/wants for my classroom so I made two lists of things I need to get done and things I need to buy once my first paycheck rolls around..Here they are..Things that are highlighted are things I have done/purchased so far..
