School has gone so well the last three days. The kids are great and are going to be a lot of fun this year. and they're all SUPER smart. :) We got our badges last Friday and I was so excited. I'm officially a teacher! Here it is:
Oh and when I showed up on the first day, I found this beautiful arrangement on my desk with a note saying "good luck on the first day." It's from Jennifer, my facilitator (mentor teacher). She's such a sweetheart!
All ready for the kids to arrive!! :) Almost time.
Well, I made it through the first day! And I'm still smiling...
I was so surprised how SORE I was after that first day. My legs and lower back were so sore it hurt to stand, sit, or lay down by the time I got home that night. After a good night's sleep though, I felt just fine for the next day.
The second day was just as great. Kids were a little more talkative but still a bunch of sweethearts. We did a bunch of walking around the school, learning where things were, and making sure we knew what procedures were required in each place. We also played a few games and they loved it. Oh and during lunch, some guy from the district came to fix my computer because the CD drive was broken when I got it, and he took it WITH him. So I'm now using a loaner computer and I don't have any of my plans for the rest of the week. So I have to re-type them all up each night. It's kinda a bummer. I can't wait to get mine back.
Today was a good day as well. We got started on math and reading and played a few games. We also spent time finishing up things they hadn't finished the last two days (math pre-test, learning styles surveys, all about me book, etc.) I'm not sore anymore but I am SO exhausted. I'm going to finishing typing up tomorrow's plans and then head to bed.
Love you all! I'll keep you updated :)
