Well, the first week is done and over and went pretty well. It took a couple of days to get the hang of the new kids in the class and the new schedule. This is my 3rd year teaching at my current school and I teach K-3 which is a great age they absorb so much and have fun learning. I am loving every moment, I get to be creative every day, how lucky am I?
We started off the week just getting to know the children and their names and kept the crafts pretty simple. Taught the kids some really cute songs to learn the other children’s names. We discussed colors to start out the week and each day we learned about a new color. On Wednesday we mixed colors: yellow and blue make green. We also started brainstorming ideas for our next bulletin board for the fall. We decided to keep a fall theme and add crafts as we go: pumpkins in a pumpkin patch, corn and owls (which I cannot wait to make). I am very excited and I think it will be an amazing, fulfilling school year. I have a ton of ideas that I have found online and in my books and I cannot wait to try them out.
