  2. Just stumbled across your blog.... I love all your advice, especially having a rule/procedure for everything (even things that you didn't think would need a rule/procedure or something you think the kids WILL know, because most likely, they won't!) I also love all the necessities for a classroom (advil is definitely a MUST... and I totally agree about the pencil sharpener. I about died when mine broke last year!)
