I made it through day one. It was a very exhausting day.
My new class seems like they’re going to be pretty great. I have 21 kids, however only 20 showed up. I have a few talkers but nothing too severe.
The morning started off pretty rough. I picked up the kids at 7:55 and walked them into our room. I had them get started on their morning work and had them take out all their supplies. I decided to keep their scissors, glue sticks, glue, and pencils.
Last year, I had a major problem with scissors and glue sticks so that’s why I decided to keep them this year. Last year I had kids making confetti out of the papers in their desks and gluing everything together.
Our school is a Title 1 school so all the students are on a free breakfast and lunch program. Last year the district started a breakfast in the classroom program. I have a love/hate relationship with it.
Once I got all the kids seated and working, I start to get their breakfasts to them. I have parents in my room wanting to talk to me and I realize I have no breakfast. I had to call the secretary to find out where the breakfasts are at.
We also had an assembly at 8:30 so by the time I get breakfast, it’s 8:15. I had the kids eat quickly and get to the assembly on time. It was a very rushed morning but the students handled it well.
After that, the day felt off but it all went pretty well. I got everything I needed done so I can’t really complain. I’m excited for tomorrow because I feel things should go a lot smoother.
I have a few things to get done for tomorrow but I’m ready for it. Bring it on!!! LOL
Well, I’m super exhausted and I probably should get things done so I can hit the hay!
