I am a wife, a mother, and a Montessori teacher; but when I grow up I want to be a writer.
This is my attempt.

New School Year
The pencils are sharpened and the materials in place. This year I'm still technically an intern (hopefully earning my Montessori Credentials by the spring) and my head teacher has assigned Practical Life and Sensorial as my responsibility. Since I am a forgetful person, I am taking pictures of the shelves each time I put work on them. These will go in my albums as a reference for when I have my own classroom someday and can't remember what to put on the shelves in September. It's not a requirement of the albums (they've already been graded) but I think having a full year's sequence including holiday ideas will be really helpful.
Here are the shelves I put together for the first day of school:
Care of Environment and Care of Self
Sensorial Shelf 1
Sensorial Shelf 2
School starts next Wednesday and we have seven new 3 year olds starting this year. Maybe I should take pictures of what the shelves look like after the first day - that way I remember that part of September too.
