I survived week One!

Thankfully the rest of my week went by pretty uneventful - all children got home correctly and I slept easy because of that. I have 19 sweet kiddos this year - 11 girls and 8 boys. I have 3 that cannot write their name, 1 that doesn't even know how to spell her name, and 1 that is reading on a 2nd grade level. It is going to be an interesting year!

I wanted to post a few pics of the finished room, but I haven't figured out how to find them on my new MacBook. Did I mention that my school district bought 900 MacBooks this summer for the teachers? 1.2 million dollars on computers! But - I get to bring it home everyday to play on! I am still trying to figure things out on here.

Last week we focused on the Kissing Hand and this week we will be reading Chrysanthemum. We start CCSS hard and heavy on week 3. I placed an order on Amazon today for 6 books for our units. Will is being super supportive of me buying what I need-thankfully!!

So, all in all, I did survive. I did catch a cold, of course, but that just gives me the excuse to talk Nyquil and pass out at 7:00. :)


  1. 900 Macbooks???!!!! What district and state are you in? That's incredible! You will love it - mine is never far from my side (but I bought it-not the district).
    I totally understand your stress of getting kids home. If it makes you feel any better, I have been teaching for 14 years and lost a couple of kids last year on the first day. :) We found them.

  2. I work in Mississippi for Rankin County schools. I never imagined them buying me a computer! But I will admit - it is a very nice perk! Charlie is doing great! 2 vet visits later we found out that he had the stomach flu and had contracted a worm (for the 2nd time). So 3 antibiotics later, he is back to his normal self! Thanks so much for asking about him!
