Twas the Night Before School...

Yep! Tomorrow's the BIG day. THE day that all teachers dread and look forward to all summer long. THE day that we see our new learners for the first time. THE day we begin to form our own community. THE day we become chief of a new tribe.  I. Am. Ready.
This little girl helped me prepare

 capes for my Super Learners to don when they step into the room tomorrow morning! Of course there will be a ceremony to receive there capes!  Here they are...

And so the intense training begins! I love Curious Firsties Ninja training so I'm going to join them and train my students to be "Super Learners"

Come back during the week to see how our training is coming! 

By the way...the capes were super duper easy to make. I went to Joann's and got three yards of felt which made 12 capes, iron on velcro, Heat and Bond UltraHold Iron on adhesive and small sheets of contrasting color for the badge.
I downloaded and printed a template from Jolly Mom...
Each cape probably cost about $2.00. It only involved cutting and ironing.  I can't wait to share a picture of my students wearing their capes! 


  1. I LOVE it all--the capes, the training, and cannot wait to see the kids in their capes. Have a SUPER first day!!!

  2. Ahhhhhhh!!!!! I love love love it!! Thank you so much for the kind words! I can't wait to hear all about it :)

  3. Oh the capes! I love them. I'll take 25. :)


Please give me a hoot!
