My First Day Back, April Currently, and a Freebie :)

So, after 10 glorious weeks with my sweet Lila Kate, I ditched my lounge clothes, put on some make-up and name badge, and returned to my 21 kinders. My first thoughts when I walked in my room - "What's that smell?" then "Where is my coffee?", and lastly, "Why am I already sweating??"

Welcome to my world. 

The smell - the jellybeans I had forgotten I had stuffed in my bag last night.
My coffee - in my hand :)
Sweating - because apparently it's my body's new thing since becoming a mother. 

I will say, my day was not bad at all!! I was sorta preparing myself this past weekend for some craziness, but my kids were super sweet and did all of their work without complaint. And I must say that my sub had done a great job with them, because they were reading beautifully for the 142nd day of school!

This week we are working on /u/ - medial. So I whipped up this little activity as a can do for my early finishers at one of my centers. Please take if you want/need it!

And.. here is my April Currently.

  1. Glad you had a good first day back! Coming back from spring break is hard enough let alone maternity leave!
    We do a pedometer "thing" in my district. Lots of lucky people won $75 gift cards. I guess maybe I should have joined!


  2. Oh, this post reminds me of when my boy was a baby! Enjoy every second. :)
    I never stopped sweating. Haha! I'm a proud new follower and loved your positive post- so glad that the kids were sweet and your sub worked out. That's awesome!
