Back to School Tour

I have made it 3 days and now this will be our first full week with the kids.  HMMM...I have to say I'm a little nervous because last week every night I believe I fell asleep by 8:00 pm.  I was exhausted!  So adding in a couple of extra days makes me wonder how tired I may be by Friday.  :-)  Oh and we are also doing an Open House night on Thursday.....which means that 8:00 bedtime will not happen on Thursday night for me.  

My room was ready for those little first graders to come to school last Wednesday.  Here is what it looks like:


Job chart and Prize chart

Calendar, Rules, and Whole Brain Posters

Look at all that space-I had 22 kids last year and this year I have only 16.  I didn't realize how much space I had in the room!


Word Work area

Lunch count area

Behavior Chart

Today I introduced our connect four game that we have on TPT to the kids.  They had a lot of fun playing the game while practicing the short a sound.  


We have also started building our stamina for read to self in Daily 5-we did 3 minutes today-YAY!  Check them out!



I will be excited to get that Daily 5 rolling!

Have a great day!

  1. I've been going to bed quite early too. But yesterday felt a little better -- I wasn't running the whole day trying to get caught up! Hope you make it through the rest of the week! Sara
