My Classroom Needs new Furniture

I know that most of you are already having a wonderful summer break (despite the heat). Our school terms run differently here. My vacation starts from July 8th to the first week in September. Now, I'm working on correcting test papers and writing up report cards. The only problem is that I cant find my stuff! We had a little mishap last week which has left my classroom in a mess. 

In preparation for our annual graduation ceremony at our school, all of my classroom furniture was moved to facilitate seating accommodations for guests. Unfortunately, my cupboard (which is very old) could not withstand the lifting and shoving. The shelves collapsed and my books were everywhere. My jaw dropped to the floor. As for my filing cabinet, two of the drawers are so baldly jammed that none of the drawers can open. Every time the handymen fix it, it locks up again in a few minutes. I hope to receive a new cupboard and filing cabinet for my classroom in September, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

On a happy note, the graduation was beautiful. Here's a picture of the graduates!

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
