Year 2, Day ? You count it

I will have to say this year has gone very smoothly so far. The kids are great! Even on their worst day thus far, they couldn't hold a candle to last year's class. They are pretty sweet and respectful. There are one or two that drive me crazy, but then again, nothing compared to last year's. For example, we had indoor recess because of all the rain. Last year's class, I had to watch them while they played or there would be 1) a fight/argument, 2)something broken, or 3) tears. This year, I can actually sit at my desk and get some work done or even play with the kids. I love it!! Hope the rest of the year goes as smoothly!

Year 2, Day 1

So I woke up this morning not nervous but excited! Then I got to school. Apparently, there is a leak in the roof. Unluckily for me, the leak was above my room. I walked into a freaking pond in my room! Mind you this is 30 minutes before the kids were supposed to show. I freaked out to say the least and I almost killed myself on the slick floor. However, everything was righted and all was well again...just very wet. I lost another kid; now I am down to 20! Woo-Hoo! Hopefully, I will not get anymore (here's to hoping). I think I have a fairly good bunch. I hope it's not just because it was the first day. They seem very eager to please and can follow directions! I am exhausted but very excited for tomorrow!

New Class, New Year

And so it begins...a new class, a new year...hopefully, this year I will have more time to post and actually write things down :) I was very bad last year. We have lost a fifth grade teacher; she moved to fourth grade, but our classes are smaller this year so it shouldn't be too bad. I don't get to teach Social Studies this year, and I am sad about that. I also have to teach math, which will be interesting to say the least.

I have 21 students this year, and I think some might be a handful. I have four LD kids and one ED kid. I assuming because I rocked out so hard during my first year, my principal thinks I can handle them. Here's to hoping! I'll be posting pictures of my new class very soon! First day of school is t-minus 2 days!
