How in the world is Monday the first day of school? Where did my summer time go? In my head it feels like I will be back to my summer-time-love-on-baby-schedule after last week’s blip of working on my room.
Monday students will arrive and for the most part I think we are ready. It is scary- I am afraid to think and am *actually* ready for fear I will jinx myself!
Here are my first week lesson plans.
For the most part we covered procedures with a few activities sprinkled in. We will start hitting the content areas the second week of school. I am a firm believer that my kids need to know how to do things for my classroom to run seamlessly. And it actually never is seamless, but it is a nice goal to have!
I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL, SMOOTH and peaceful first week!
