First Week Inspriation

This was sent to me (and other staff) by one of my assistant principles and I thought I would share it with you.

I love how I get to teach my students so much more then academics!!! They also get to teach me so many things.

Registration Day

Today I met 18 out of 20 of my new students. I am really looking forward to a new group of children. Getting new students is what makes my job so interesting and fun.

While the parents were filling out boring paper work, I had stations for the students to work on. They got to explore the classroom, record their birthday, record their bus number, read books on How to Survive Fifth Grade (written by my former students) and complete an interest survey.

I would LOVE to share some of my favorite answers to some of the questions!

If I had $50.00, I would spend it on "spend it on a special person."
          Precious, but I want to know who that "special person" is. I am sooooo nosey.

If you could travel somewhere, it would be "Hollywood" because "famous people live there."

My favorite outdoor game is "badminton."
          What? 10 year old plays this?

My favorite movie is "Shawshank Redemption."
          Really? She has seen this and most likely understands it.

My favorite...
When I am with my friends we like to "gossip (habit.)"
          Love the honesty here.

After reading through these forms, I realize I have an eclectic group of fifth graders this year. I can't wait to see what the year has in store. 

P.S. I took classroom pictures today. They should be posted this weekend.

A new year has begun

I know that I have been a serious blog slacker, but have no fear the new school year is hear. I have made it my New School Year's resolution to blog more often (once or twice a week).

I have spent the past two weeks in my classroom, even though I do not go back to work until Monday. I have unpacked my new room and set it up. I will post tour pictures next week once all the laminating is back and hung up.

I hope you all continue to follow me and read all about my Learning Explorers.
