I must say that this has been the easiest first day/week of school I have ever encountered. Or at least, that I remember.
I was not able to get my classroom 100% set up but I think I got it 85% of the way ready. I slept like a baby and got up on time. I arrived at 6:40AM to see some parents already there. School actually starts at 7:30AM.
I was in my room and waiting and my first student arrived around 7:05. I had 19 on my first day. I have 21 on my roster. The other two will be arriving. One is still on vacation and the other is transferring from another school so he will be coming in a few weeks.
I share my class with a Spanish teacher. Laura is great. She is working on her English but we seem to communicate well. We spent the first part of the day setting up supplies. They had recess, then P.E. we did a short, "get to know you" activity then it was lunch. Laura did an activity in the afternoon and that was our day.
Overall, I could not be happier with the school and my teammates are the best. Today is the 3rd day of school. I have 6 weeks worth of daily math plans, including all my copies of worksheets. Also have 4 math tests to review and resubmit for copies. I have the same set of documents for the first 4 weeks of language arts and social studies. I need some papers to grade :)
