I think that I had the best first day ever in all of my MANY years of teaching!
I just love my class!
We did lots of team building and getting to know you activities today and not much meat.
I learned a LOT about some of my kiddos!
One of them is even PERFECT (just ask him!)
One of the things we did today was the sticky note posters - you know which ones.
They are all over Pinterest.
Here are ours...
No surprises on this one.
We learn new stuff every day.
We learn new things.
To get ready for college.
Clean, Quiet, Fun!
OKAY, a few surprises here...
To fly around the world. (?)
Getting good grades/Honor Roll
They nailed this one!
No talking, playing and doing silly stuff.
Here are some of their responses...
My third grade pals trained them well!
Here's where it got interesting.
One of my boys came up and said there really wasn't anything I could do.
I said, "Really? You are already perfect? I mean, I already know that you are AMAZING, but try to think of something I can do to help you be successful."
After a few minutes he's back with his answer, "I got nothing. I'm just perfect."
...and he is, and I love him already!
Here is what he put on the chart
Oh, and they want HOMEWORK!
Here's what they want from each other...
Later on we did the Saving Fred activity that I found at Lorraine's Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies.
AFTER I planned it, I found out that they did it last year! Oh well, they had fun anyway.
It was a great day, and I can't wait to get back to these kiddos tomorrow!
I hope all of you have fabulous first days too!
