Slippers… Say What?

Do you hate when the kids come in from recess and their shoes are so muddy?  If you are like me, your classroom is your second home.  At my house, we do not wear our shoes inside.  The main reason is, I think it is gross! I also have 7 children, and a toddler that still hangs out on the floor. 
Last year I really transformed my classroom into a home.  I added real furniture pictures and tried to make it welcoming to the students.  By October my room was filthy and my rug was disgusting.  
I saw a post by Starr Spangled Planner and decided that I was going to go for it next year.  I added slippers to my supply list.  I’m hoping for the following 3 things…

1. it creates a comfortable learning atmosphere
2. it cuts down on the mess
3. it teaches my first graders to tie their shoes

Oh and most importantly…. I WILL GET TO WEAR MY SLIPPERS!!!  

I will keep you posted this year on how it goes…

I’m super excited and nervous about this new adventure in our classroom!
