I’ve officially gone back to school- but Monday is my first day with students. This is EXACTLY the way I feel. The thought of early alarm times, getting dressed, makeup and working ALL DAY wears me out just thinking about it. I am starting my 15th year of teaching. This is nothing new- but I quickly forget how tired going back to school makes you.
I know YOU understand!!!!!!!!!!
Last week I told you about rescuing Biscuit. She is doing so much better and she has been my little sidekick all week. She has moved into my parent’s house but she visits our house and has been spending lots of time playing at school. She’s a nosy little girl who loves wandering the halls and meeting new friends at school. We are all in LOVE!
I got my class list for this year.
I have 12 new first graders.
7 boys and 5 girls.
Do you know how much I love the number 12!
Perfect for dividing the class in 1/2 and in groups of 3 or 4.
It’s a teacher’s dream!
After I got the list- I got busy making labels. I had a list of everything that needed labels- books, folders, boxes, desks, cubbies, hooks, helper chart, door, etc… and had it all ready to start labeling everything Thursday.
I ended up forgetting a few things- and had to go “old school” with the labels.. blank labels, handwritten names, and stickers. Oh my!
Biscuit and I spent a little time in the copy room Wednesday afternoon. I got my sight word flash cards copied for the year. I hate this chore! It seems to take forever . but so thankful to have it done and ready! My sight words are from my Sight Word Unit.
I hope you have a great weekend! I hope to catch up on a little sleep.. my mind has been going non stop all week and have not slept much. My room is ready and work is prepared. Bring on those little ones Monday.. at least it’s a 1/2 day.
