First Day of School
On my class list, I originally had 29 kindergartners but 5 did not show up today. It felt great knowing that my class size was smaller than I expected but who knows, they might show up tomorrow. I was surprise how independent my students were. Yes, on the first day of Kindergarten! I started Math Work Stations, of course they were just math manipulative for them to explore with but I didn't hear a single "Miss Nguyen!" It felt nice for once because I kept hearing that over and over and over again all day. I didn't have any meltdown, thank goodness. Today went smooth. We came up with the classroom rules together, did a cut/glue activity, explore math manipulative, and read "The Kissing Hand." My feet are killing me even though I wore flats. I am looking forward to another fun yet tiring day tomorrow!
