We read so much this week. I think my kids defiantly have figured out my love of reading. We've read so many back to school books! I've started my kids with read to self. They are very excited to start and go over our anchor charts. They have built up five minutes of stamina. Yes, after five days five minutes. I'm trying but like I said a wiggle bunch. The biggest things we are working on and keep re visiting is staying in one spot the and reading the whole time. Here they are finding good spot in the classroom and reading.
My students wrote "We are excited about first grade because..." this week. They have so many great responses. They love their school, riding the bus, art, new friends, not being the youngest in school anymore, and their teacher. I got this cute bus pattern from First Grade Blue Skies: BUStin' into School craft. I made it a little bit easier for my kids and didn't give them all the pieces. We made it our own. :)
I was not home much this week but when I was this real frog was always hanging around on my side door. Every morning and evening when I came home he was in the same spot. I thought it was funny since I had a frog theme going on in my room. Frogs are following me everywhere!
Friday hasn't looked so good in three months! I was super happy to finish out the week with my kids. I wore this shirt with school supplies on it today. I love my job and I couldn't imagine my life without teaching kids! I also couldn't imagine better co-workers! I love the teachers I work with. One of my co-workers passed out fortune cookies to everyone this morning. This saying "The real kindness comes from within you." is great for the first week of school. We're focusing kindness during our social studies time and of course all day with rules and procedures.
Have a great weekend blogging buddies! Hope you had a wonderful week!
