Grateful for First Day

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.

    1. The number of grade 1s in our school this year has increased so we have an extra grade 1 classroom. Because I am a combined class of grade 1s and 2s, I have the children that do not make up a full class of either grade. The result? I have 17 in my room this year 🙂
