I have a good excuse though.
It was the first week of school and oh man am I exhausted.
I have good news though. It's official. I am in love with my class. They are adorable. They are well-behaved. Not to mention I only have 19 kiddos! Yep, 19!
We have been busy every single moment of the day it seems like, so when I went to go and see how many pictures I've taken this week. I only had two. Yep two. Oh and they were both on the first day of school. Here they are...
On the first day of school I always do "Nine Truths and a Lie". I post 9 true things and 1 lie about myself and my students choose the one they think is the lie. Most of my students thought "My Sister Lives In Hawaii" was a lie! I'm teaching a little boy that my sister used to babysit and he informed them "Ms Amanda lives in Hawaii, I know her and love her!"
In the past I've written the rules with my students, this year I already had the rules posted. I wrote all of the rules on chart paper. They rotated around like a gallery walk and wrote what the rule meant to them.
It's going to be a busy year but I'm looking forward to a great one! I'll try to be better next week about taking pictures! Hopefully that will help me remember what we do in class. :)
Oh and here's a Beginning of the Year Freebie for you!
I've done this for years and I have no idea where I got the idea! Who knows, maybe it's original! :)
It doesn't have any super cute clipart, because I didn't want it to distract from the student's information! You can click on the picture to grab it from Google Docs!
Have a great Labor Day Weekend! I'll be having a Labor Day sale at my TPT Store and TN Shop Sunday and Monday! Everything will be 20% off!
I'm off to try and catch up on my Google Reader. Right now I have over 1000 posts....
