Students arrive on Wednesday 🎉. I’m just about finished making preparations for the little darlings. I don’t know about you, but I always strip the room and clear the palette, eager to prepare a fresh scene for the coming year. Inspired by the ocean, this year we’re diving deep into music. I love the water look and I’m excited to share it with my kiddos. To tie it together, we’ll be working on the Go Fish musical during the Fall. Bring on the school year!

Are you on Summer break yet? I have already enjoyed my first week off, and can't wait to head out on a cruise next week! The only thing on my mind recently is sand and sea :) What better way to bring on Summer than with a FREE welcome banner for your Music room? If you're considering an ocean theme for next year, this will be the perfect addition. http://bit.ly/310mRjK
