Happy First (Half) Day of School!

Woo Hoo!  We started school today!!  I'm partner teaching and only teaching 3 days per week.  Today was not my day to teach, but my partner and I wanted to both be there on the first day to emphasize that we are a team and share the same rules.  SO...I only had to stay for half of the day.  It was a nice way to ease into the year.  My kiddos are SUPER (all 11 of them!).  I can tell it's going to be a great year.  I have 8 boys and 3 girls, which seems crazy to me after spending a year subbing in public schools where class sizes are MUCH larger.  I think it's going to be fun having a small group.  We are going to be really close I can tell.

Since I don't have to teach until Friday, I have a day to spend prepping.  I need to create a fun intro. science lesson.  Of course, I had the perfect lesson in mind - one that we had done in my science methods class.  I came home and realized that I hadn't kept the notebook it was in.  Oy!  Sometimes my purging comes back to bite me!  So, I'll be doing some internet surfing to try and find a good replacement.

Oh - and one last tidbit...we got this cute little gift today from one of our kiddos.  I had to laugh when he said "My mom got this on Pinterest...she gets everything off of Pinterest!".

  1. I could totally relate your post - I am a "purger" by nature, too. I agree - sometimes it comes back to bite me...but that's still better than having so much stuff that you can't find any of it ( opinion anyway!) :)
