The kids came back to school on Monday. I've been missing blogging, but the first week of school is such a busy time that I wanted to put all of my time into getting the school year started right for both my first graders and for my daughter starting pre-k. My little ones deserve no less. However, the first week is nearly done and I am ready to get back to blogging.
The year is looking like it will be a great one. My daughter is loving pre-k and I have been blessed with a smaller class. There are 18 amazing kids in my room. Yes, you read that right.
I was shocked today when I finished assessing a student and realized that everyone was on task, silent, and working independently. It was a coloring activity and the silence only lasted a little while, but I was pleased. It is looking like this will be a great year.
