So, like I said, once I was at school, everything was fine. I loved seeing all my coworkers again and seeing them recharged and rested. My littles were even cuter than when they left for Christmas Vaca. They had grown some and they were so quiet on Thursday. It almost felt like the first day of school. We spent LOTS of time going over procedures and expectations. We practiced some of the more tricky ones like lining up and transitioning to and from the carpet area. I wish I knew how many times I say the words quickly, quietly and safely in one day! Anywho, they did wonderful and I must say that I loved hearing many of them say, "I missed you soooooooo much!"
In my last post, I mentioned the New Year's activity that goes with the printable linked there. Here are some pictures of that project. Normally, we do the hats out of scrapbook paper, but I forgot to grab it on my way out of the house on Thursday morning. The littles didn't mind at all. They loved decorating their own hat :)
I love this little guy's goal. It truly will test him and benefit me!
This little is super precious and just wants to lrne (learn) more. Love!
I mentioned this in an earlier post this year, but I create a gallery outside my classroom each year. The work is changed out regularly. I had a couple students out on Thursday and one little didn't get finished with the writing part. Those will be added later.
I hope that you all had a great start to the new year. If you are heading back to school on Monday, good luck :)
