If you would have asked me how the first day of school was today at 1:29 p.m. I would have said, "It was my best first day ever!"
Then came 1:30...
...and Kindergarten music class.
*Remember I'm teaching 2nd grade and K-2 music this year.
I wondered why I didn't have any back-to-school "nightmares" this year. Obviously, it was because I would be living one for 20 minutes today. Ha!
You know those dreams where the kids are out of control and won't listen to you...
Yep! That was me today in Kindergarten music.
All I can say is Kindergarten teachers are amazing!!! I mean, I knew that already, but I didn't really know that (with first-hand experience if you know what I mean).
In fact, I'm pretty sure this picture should say "I teach K...What's your super power?"
I have a new plan for tomorrow and it includes "If You're Happy and You Know It" and "Couch Potato Pokey" which I'm
hoping praying will capture the attention of those little 5-year-olds.
Nightmare aside, my new bunch of 2nd graders (and even the firsties in music) were great! It was a fun day in my new school...and best of all, when I was so exhausted I just needed to get out of there, I was home in about one minute! ;-)
Oh, and if you have advice for dealing with Kinders, I'd love to hear from you!
