I have survived the first two days of school and second grade, granted the first day was an early dismissal, and the second day was Friday so now I’m enjoying my weekend! I did, however, come home Thursday evening after eating dinner with my parents, put my cold mask on my face, and went to bed at 8:30.
It never fails that with each new second grade class I forget how self sufficient my third graders are at the end of the loop. I’ve spent these first two days going over procedures and expectations. We’ve practiced what things look like and sound like. I only had a couple of students say the dreaded “I’m bored” sentence on one of many walks down the hallway. I maintained myself and gave back the “We don’t say we’re bored” sentence.
Next week will be the first full week of school and getting into a schedule routine. 🙂
