A Start To An Excellent Year!!!

Oh my goodness, it's been two weeks now and I can't believe how great this year is going to be!!!  My students are so fantastic.  They are such quiet workers, good listeners, helpful students, so responsible and great leaders!  Sometimes,  I don't know what to do with myself they are so great!  After a summer full of working EFY (Especially For Youth - a summer LDS Youth camp), I had a blast organizing my classroom this year before school started.  Here's a few sneak peaks:

 Reading Corner
 Get to Know You Beach Ball

 All ready for the first day! 

 We learned about Captain Dependable to help us learn about being responsible.
 One of my cute girls gave this pencil to me last week!

 Our School Supply Giving Tree for BTS Night

This past Thursday, our school had Back to School Night and kicked off our new Leader in Me changes at the school.  We started the night with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony where our Student Leaders introduced some of the new changes we have at our school.

Our third grade team with Simba the Sabertooth!

As we were heading into the school to gather in the gym, a parent from last year came and told me this sweet story.   Her son, Boston, was in my class last year and I guess had a crush on me.  He tells his mom every time he sees someone pretty he says, "She's pretty but not as pretty as Miss Wiser."  That definitely melted my heart and gave me a unique insight into the minds of children. They are so genuinely loving and sincere in their interactions with others.  I sure love my job and learning from these beautiful children.
