Anyone else sing that title in their head? Cause I totally did. :) I was perusing one of my favorite bloggers Angela Nerby over at Hippo Hooray for 2nd Grade. You can follow her HERE. Seriously, I don't know why she doesn't have like 1,000 followers by now. She has some great ideas. She linked up with Rowdy in 1st Grade for a wonderful idea for a linky party. Sharing the good stuff with each other.
Soooo perfect for the begining of the year because, even though I've been doing this for 6 years now I seem to forget EVERY year how challenging the begining of the year can be. I forget that those perfectly behaved children ,who knew all our routines and could have run the class without me, had to be taught those routines. That we had to practice and practice at each peice and that it took a lot of time and energy to get them to be the perfect angels I remember them to be. :)
SOMETHING GOOD AT SCHOOL
I can already see the progress that we have made from week 1 to week 2. One of the things that this group has been awesome with already is keeping our book bins nice and organized. I get the tubs out a little at a time until I see that they can keep the previous one's neat and organized. These kiddo's are definitely ready to get some more tubs out! I have some really supportive parents who are interested in their children's learning and want to help them ( and me) succeed. And of course, the best part, I LOVE these guys already. Again, every year I think " how can I possibley love another group as much as I loved last years". And EVERY YEAR it happens. I shouldn't be surprised by it. But I guess I'm not surprised so much as amazed at how quickly and easily it happens.
SOMETHING GOOD AT HOME
Truly the best part about my home is who I share it with. My husband, while not perfect but then again neither am I!, is super supportive and my daughter is truly the delight of my life. One super fun thing is yesterday I got a phone call from my daycare lady in the middle of the day. I ,of course, answered it because she usually only calls if something major has happened. She told me that someone had something to tell me. It was my daughter calling to tell me she had gone #1 and #2 on the potty! I was so happy and excited. Fellow parents you totally get me on this one I know. :)
It is always good to focus on the positives in your life rather than the negatives....even though it really can be easier at times to focus on the negative instead. What a great idea for a linky party. Thanks to Rowdy in 1st Grade for hosting. AAAAAANNNNNDDDD....look for my post WITH PICTURES of my room tomorrow. :) Enjoy your Saturday friends!
