Yesterday was the first day back to school. It was a beautiful sunny day and the excitement hummed on the playground as parents and children searched the lists to find their new teacher. I saw quite a few smiles as some of my students from SK saw that I was to be their grade 2 teacher 🙂 Understandably the grade 1s were feeling a little nervous as they no longer would be protected within the confines of the kindergarten environment.
The day was spent teaching my students new routines. I gave them the opportunity as well to get to know one another as they asked questions trying to discover who liked snow, who had a cat, who enjoys eating apples, etc.
This week I am grateful for first days, and the chance to get to know new students.
Laura was grateful for timing
