1st day of School (one day late)

        Yesterday was my first day of school (with kids).  It was such a great day!  I can't believe how blessed I am to have another sweet bunch of kiddos.  Honestly though the day was a bit of a blur.  I'm not sure if I block it out everywhere or what but I never seem to remember how many different things that need to take place on the first day of school and how long it takes to teach the rituals, routines, rules, etc...  I am happy to say that we were able to accomplish a lot.  We began Reader's, Writer's and Math Workshops, completed a couple of get to know you activities and even decorated our bucket filling buckets.  Of course we also practiced going to and from the carpet, lining up, walking in the hallway, practicing proper lunch procedures and playground safety.  We ended the day with a rainy dismissal (boo!).  All and all it was a really great day.  The only thing that I would have done differently was actually passing out my back to school s'mores snack-oops!  Oh well, they went home today.  Better late than never right?  I hope that everyone else had/has "toad"ally awesome back to school experiences!  If you get a chance link up with Julie over at Math is Elementary for her first day stories linky party,
