Well I survived the first full week of teaching! My school lets kindergarten have 5-6 students a day so we can test them and they can get used to school. Let's say my first testing day was interesting. Yesterday was my first full day with all 20 Kindergarteners. The day was spent teaching rules, procedures, and exploring math tools. Oh and the school added a tornado and fire drill! Thank goodness I had help!
This week has been exhausting! I spent 13 hours at work on Thursday and at least 8.5 to 9 every other day of the week. Not to mention kids take all of your energy! It has been a shift from where my kids were at the end of the year to starting over. I have a great group of kids!
Here is a funny story from talking with one of my sweet students during testing:
Me: what's your last name?
Student: ********* but its gonna change
Me: why is it going to change?
Student: because my daddy took the test.
Me: what test?
Student: the DNA test.
Dont forget, I teach kindergarten!
I added some pictures of the kids playing at recess and one of my classroom!
