Getting ready for kindergarten is busy work! Yikes!

It's like one step forward two steps back I swear.  You get one thing completed (or not) and there's something else that needs to be done.

The state of my kitchen table is in permanent disarray.

Yes, that is a computer, cutter and laminator all going at the same time.  Believe me, if my color laser printer hadn't died in the midst of all this mayhem, it would be there too.

It's busy work . . .

laminate to cut

calendar puzzle to organize

bulletin boards to put up, student folders to print and assembly, open house scavenger hunt to organize, name tags, math tubs to label . . . and on and on and on and . . . somewhere in there...I suppose planning should happen.

At the moment my classlist stands at 25 kinder honeys, but I suspect a few add ons over the next few days. Tomorrow starts the first of three PD days and then the long weekend and then . . . SCHOOL starts.  The jury is still out as to whether I'll ever be ready. 

Stay tuned to hear the verdict.


  1. Seeing your table makes me feel sooo much better about the state of my own house right now! I also teach kindergarten (in Michigan) and my table & kitchen island both look like that right now! Thanks for sharing and I wish you the best of luck getting ready for the new year! :)

  2. Yes,teaching kindergarten is so much fun but so much work! Do you think the parents of our kiddos have any idea how much time we spend preparing before the school year begins?

  3. You'll get there Marsha! Now remember, you don't need it all on the very first day! :) Did you just put your puzzle together and trace them piece by piece? I have one all ready to go, but have never used it because I didn't know how to get it started. Great idea!
