A Peek at My Week: Back to School and Back to Blogging

Monday, August 11, 2014

It’s been a while since I last blogged…I had great intentions, but school and life got in the way.  This year, my goal is to stick with it!  I had great ideas for posts throughout the year, so this year, it is on!  I thought I’d start back with A Peek at My Week which is hosted by Mrs. Laffin’s Laughings.

My fifth grade team looks a little different this year, because one of our teammates retired two weeks ago.  The last two weeks have been a fury of interviews, hiring a new teammate, prepping my own room, and helping her move in.  So the stress level has been high to say the least.  But this is the first week of school, so I’m sure everyone’s stress level is at maximum levels! 

So here’s the peek at my week:
Monday: Open House
Open House at my school is a chance for kids to drop off their materials and meet the teacher.  So, tonight, I meet my 26 new kiddos and their families, and I’m super excited!

Tuesday: Teacher Work Day
A day filled with meetings, schedules, and paperwork…

Wednesday: First Student Day!
The first day is always filled with nerves (on our part and the kids'!), but I'm ready to start the year with my new batch of kids.  It will be sad to lose one of our team members, but I’m excited about the new teammate and a year of new opportunities.
Thursday: Day 2
Still working on some community building activities, but starting some curriculum too.

Friday: Day 3
By the end of the day, the kids will have most of their textbooks and will have had an introduction to every subject.  It should lead to a solid start of “real school days” on Monday.

That’s a look at my week…what are you looking forward to in terms of back to school?
