I'm joining Em @ Curious Firsties for her weekly linky party Wednesday WOW. I think my WOWs or more like wows, but I've only been back to school two days.
We (teachers) had to go back to school on Friday for a professional development day. The kids were supposed to come back on Monday but our school closed due to extreme temperatures. I was so happy to have one more day off. Wow does that make me lazy or what??? So I went back with students yesterday. It was my last day to have the kinders. I have to say that I really enjoyed having them in my class.
Yesterday I needed to do some final assessments to finish their report cards. I was assessing Brenna, she was supposed to be counting some little erasers. She was trying to count them w/o moving them and as I'm sure can imagine she was counting some of them twice. I told her to try it again and move them as she counted them. It was so funny, she would move each one in a different direction as far as her arm could reach. I had the hardest time not laughing. But she did count them right! :) After that I asked her to count for me, she said she could count to 10. I told her I knew she could count higher than that, I ask her to try to count to 50. She said, "How about 110?" and preceded to do so! I'm going to miss having that little girl in my class. :D
Today was I got my students back from the other first grade class. It was a pretty smooth transition. they were happy to come back to my class, which is kind of funny. When I told the kids who would be moving to the other class, they all started cheering as their name was called. I had a few that kept asking me if they could move too. Anyway, now we are all back together and I am starting the days with rules and procedures. I have a positive outlook for the rest of the school year.
