Let's Get Acquainted Linky and Classroom Update

Happy Sunday!!!
Well the time has come...I go back to work tomorrow for some professional development.  We have more workshops on Tuesday and Wednesday.  The kids come for a half day on Thursday.  I have to admit that I am kind of nervous.  I am going into my 7th year but I am always a nervous wreck.
I got some more updates on my classroom.  I am still doing a Hollywood/Movie/Popcorn theme. 
I made a Bravo board like one that I saw on Pinterest.  It is a good way to keep up with table behaviors.  I will have five tables.  They will be named by colors-blue, red, yellow, purple, and green.  You keep tallies for each group and at the end of the week the table with the most will get a treat.  I love how it will help them learn tallies!
I have had this product in my TPT store for a long time.  I finally got it printed and made.  One of our class jobs will be to clip it to where we are when we leave the room.  I love how it turned out! Sorry its a little fuzzy...  Here is the link in my TPT store.  Where are we? (Hollywood Themed)
I had this pennant banner last year but could not think of a way to use it.  I found a way.  Around my tables of course!

I also bought this directors chair from Target.

I typed these and printed and put them on movie ribbon!
I will use this poster to put up spelling words each week.
I finally printed out my Hollywood number posters.  I love them!

I got these adorable hooks from Oriental Trading!
This printer paper came from Scholastic and I will use this as the cover page for their daily folders.
Back to School Board
I finally got this laminated and cut.  I will put it up tomorrow.  I got this from Joann Craft Store.
These are Guided Reading Group Labels I made for each reading group.  The table numbers look exactly the same except they say Table 1....Table 2...
My Months of the Year Cards for Calendar Math.
Okay that is it for now but there is still more to come.  You can check out more of my Hollywood room by clicking the Hollywood label on my blog.  I cant wait to put final pictures up.  I have a long way to go.  Hurry, Mrs. Reed, Hurry.....I'm trying I'm Trying lol.
Ok I have bored you enough.....It's LINKY TIME.....LET'S GET ACQUAINTED!!!!!
Topic: Upcoming School Year Goals
Share your goals for the school year.  In May we can look back and see if we actually made some happen!!!
My Goals
Be a Great Leader- I haven't really held any leadership roles at my school.  I am going to be the team leader for the first grade team this year.  I am very excited to be the team leader and be on the leadership team.  My goal is to be a great leader for my team.  We have two brand new teachers on the team and I want to be able to give them help to make it through the year.  I also will include in this goal to speak out more and not be sooooo quiet.  I am a very quiet person and as a leader I will have to come out of my shell.  I know I can do it.
Be an Organized Teacher- My name is Latoya Reed and sometimes I am junky....We will be having meetings in my room all year and I want it to look nice and in order.  It is so easy for me to come in and throw things on a table.  And then the pile grows and grows and GROWS...OMG I have got to do better this year.
Be Ahead of the Game- I really need to plan for the next week the week before.  No more planning on Sunday night.  I really want to have plans done by Friday for the next week.  That means each day I need to do a little bit and then on Friday I can prepare materials.  I think this is my most important goal.
Be More Hands On- I want the kids to have a great time in my room learning.  I really want to do more exciting hooks for lessons and think outside the box.  I do a good job of this but there are times when the students are looking at me and I know they are saying SHUT UP lol.  It's true!  They will be doing lots of talking with their groups and partners instead of listening to me.
Now it is your turn to link up your goals for the new school year!!!  Don't forget to visit some friends in the linky and feel free to link up all week!!!  Make sure you use the linky graphic and link it back to my blog so others can link up!!! Have a great SUNDAY!!!
