September is Over!

It is so hard to believe we have been in school for 18 days already!  The time is flying by!

We are still working on getting our basic routines figured out.  There are so many of them throughout the day that it takes lots of reminders for them to stick.

We have begun sending home book bags each night.  Students are expected to read 30 minutes at home to get their 2 steps toward our 100 book challenge goals.  They also earn 2 steps at school each day.

September 7, 2013

Welcome back to another school year!  I am so excited to be in KINDERGARTEN this year!  It will mean a change to how this blog is used, but I'm excited to see what is in store for us this year.

Our year together started on Thursday and I have 20 sweet friends in my class.  Our first 2 days were spent learning how our classroom and school will run, reading lots of books together, exploring the different play options around our room as we got to know one another, doing some counting and singing, and enjoying learning about school!

I know my kindergarteners were tired by the end of day two and admittedly, so was their teacher!  Our first full week is next week so I hope everyone is resting up - it will be a long one!
