First Day

It was amazing. I have such a GREAT class. I have two little guys that will give me a run for my money, but they are manageable. My kids are so kind and so helpful. They obeyed and followed directions. Only two made a complete mess of their first project, but they didn't ruin it or have to start over.

The excitement of the day was the class mouse that would streak across the room every few hours. BUT my kids didn't lose control. They would just say, "There's the mouse again." My room has more sticky strips than any other classroom. Hopefully that little guy will find one tonight and someone can let him go tomorrow morning.

Ahhh...I'm really feeling good about this year.

What a wonderful start to what sounds like it will be a terrific year! You were sad to leave summer behind...but now a new adventure awaits!

Your little ones are braver than me about the mouse! I would freak out. ;o)

You are soooo lucky! Co-operative kids!!! What a concept. :-D LOVE the class mouse. I once taught in a country school in NSW when there was a mouse plague. THAT was something else! One friend put down poison one night in her house and counted over 50 dead mice in the morning!! Every day when we came into the school we'd all sniff and say "Oh no, there's a dead mickey around here somewhere!" and then the whole 26 of us, from 5 year old to 12 year old would start sniffing around the room until we located the body. Fun times!!
Hope your year continues in the positive way its started.
