I cannot believe tomorrow starts another school year. I am looking forward to what this year has in store for me and my new group of students. I was fortunate to have spent the morning at school yesterday during Campus Visitation and had the opportunity to meet almost all of my students and their families. What is it they say about the first day of school? Get students here, get them fed, and get them home safely. Those are the 3 key things for the first day of school. I hope to begin to build a positive classroom culture and community. I hope for all my new students to feel welcomed, happy, and looking forward to the next 179 days together. I hope to know all of my students names and faces by the end of the day. I cannot wait to start read alouds again and find out interesting facts about each child. We will work on routines and creation of classroom rules together. As this year is ready start, I know I need to get a good night sleep tonight, as I am hoping that each of my children gets as well, and I ask myself the pressing question, what am I going to wear tomorrow? For everyone else that is about to start school too, have a wonderful start of a new school year!
