If You’re Exhausted & You Know It…..

…….clap your hands!!!!!! Clap, Clap! Silly, I know, but that’s exactly how I feel!!! I am beyond exhausted, and the students haven’t even gotten to school yet!!!!
I have this really old, ugly table in my room, and last year I simply covered it up with fabric, by stapling it to the bottom of the table. I even hot glued it to the bottom when it starting coming off. Well, after having kindergarteners all over it, I decided to take a different approach. 
I know you’ve seen the post by Jennifer at First Grade Blue Skies, the one where she covered her intervention table with shelf liner. So, I decided that maybe I could do the same thing!
Yeah, right! LOL, first of all, I couldn’t even find any remotely cute shelf liner, ANYWHERE!!!! I mean, it’s like they disappeared into a vortex or something!!!! So, I had to think really hard about what I was going to do! I had to settle for a liner that makes my table look like a corkboard. 
Let me warn you, it is nowhere as cute as Jennifer’s!!! Hehehehehe!!!!

In the end, I fell in love with it, because it made a smooth surface, which was really my goal!! Don’t worry, I’m still looking for an extremely cute shelf liner!!!
Last night was our Meet the Teacher, and I was able to meet several of my new kinders!!! Whew, I have a feeling that some of them are going to be a handful!!!
To introduce them to the class, I had a little goodie bag, a Kindergarten Survival kit, which I got from Pinterest, of course!!! 
I thought this was the cutest ever!! My new students really liked it, and couldn’t wait to open the bag!! 
It’s pinned to my Pinterest Back to School board, so check it out!
Well, I’m off to clean the house (boo!), there’s school stuff all over it!!!
Talk to you later!
