School started with a bang this year people!
The mother of one of my students passed away after battling breast cancer for less than a year.
Another child threw up on the floor (which is naturally carpeted) twice as we were preparing for lunch on a nearly 100 degree day.
I thought I forgot the code to our class ipad cabinet. But alas, I set the code wrong. (forehead slap!)
Our school copier broke down on the first day of school, and the second, and . . . too many times to count.
Roto Rooter also had to be called the first day of school . . . thankfully not to my room.
And it's been so hot the last few weeks that I seriously wonder why I shower in the morning and bother to do hair and makeup. By ten o'clock I'm a hot mess!
In spite of it all, I have to say our new principal is aMaZiNg!!!
I'm piloting a 1:1 ipad classroom this year! Woot woot!! (I'd love to hear your favorite apps.)
I have a nice group of kids in spite of the reputation that has preceded them since preschool and kindergarten. I lucked out, let me just tell you. The other two classes have some real stinkers. And while I have a few pips of my own I think it will be a good year.
I have lots of things to share but haven't hung around to take pictures because of the heat so please be patient.
How have your first few weeks gone?
