Teaching first grade is hard core. Especially the first day or two of the school year.
My new students are such fun. They are eager and excited to learn and maybe a little too energetic at times.
We've learned new songs. New sounds. New names. New procedures. Lots of procedures. We even practiced exiting the bus, a fire drill and a stranger-danger drill, all in one day. (We're not scared, we're prepared...that's my motto for all these drills.)
This old teacher needs a break. So I'm glad the weekend is here already.
