Wow! After waiting the whole summer–moving my classroom, moving my HOUSE, going on a fabulous vacation with my family and then figuring out how to set up a new classroom, it was FINALLY time to get started again.
Before I share the first day of first grade in Rm. 111, indulge me with a couple of first day pictures of my own kiddos, won’t you?
Somehow I am now the parent of a 5TH GRADER (Riley) and a 1ST GRADER (Allie)–how did this happen?? Oh yeah, kids grow up. 🙂 Anyhow, both were super excited to get their day started (as was I!) and we snapped an on-the-way-to-school selfie (don’t worry–I wasn’t driving yet!).
So it’s funny as I go back through my photos to see what to post here and what stories to tell. I can tell it was a really busy day because I didn’t have time to take that many pictures! I CAN tell you that we were able to read lots of stories together (which you will hear LOTS about this year!), work on learning names and beginning to build our community, work on something fun with our 1st grade neighbors in Ms. Turken’s class, had some quiet time and of course learned a little about how things work in first grade at Robinson and in Rm. 111. We had some fun, made some memories and shared some laughs. Hopefully they came home with lots of stories to tell and were exhausted from the day! Ok, well at least my first grader was. 🙂
We also took some pics of each kiddo, which are super cute and will be great to look back at throughout the year and compare our “last day” selves to! Check them out!
We ended the day together with our next-door-neighbors and created first day crowns with pictures to help kiddos tell families about their amazing day at school. Hopefully if you’re a Rm. 111 family your kiddo shared it with you! If not, be sure to ask them about it now! You will notice kiddos from both classes in our pictures, and even Ms. Turken makes an appearance!
I know this post is short, and doesn’t include many specifics and I PROMISE that there are more goodies to come! We had two more FULL days after this one to share, as well as an EXCITING ECLIPSE DAY tomorrow to tell you about! If you haven’t subscribed yet, be sure to do that while you’re here so you don’t miss out on the fun! See you soon!! 🙂
