The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 36

The back to school edition!

The Good:
And we're off! 3 days in and it's going great. I have a wonderful group this year, totally adorable, they already say the funniest things (yes, Stuff My Students Say will return), and they are already working hard. It's going to be a great year.

The Random:
We designed out journal covers on Friday. This group loves art and enjoys me letting them decorate and color (yay!). This cover set may be my favorite - how creative is that?

The Fun:
The first few days are all about getting to know each other, exploring the room, and learning routines. We've done Math About Me, set SMART goals, and learned what tools we can use in the room to help us focus (80s era headphones anyone?)

I have a rather unhealthy love for those composition books. I have no idea why I love them quite like I do, but I DO!!!!

I'll bet you are a fabulous teacher. My grandson is really happy with his class(es) this year in 3rd grade. I'll look forward to your kids quotes.

Woo hoo for a great start. We start back tomorrow and I'm looking forward to it.

I'm taking a bit of a break from blogging and IG right now, but decided to pop in and say hi and link up today.

Hope you have a great week!

Must be so rewarding to teach this age group! If they're working hard, it probably because you are a good teacher:):) Have a great school week!

The start of school - if only that level of energy could be bottled and pulled out at a later date. So glad things are off to a good start - and totally underselling those headphones - pretty sure I used some like those in the '70s. :)

I like the way you framed the very first shot. That is a neat pencil in that last shot.

So glad the new school year is off to a great start! I love how you share photos of your students without showing their faces. I bet the parents appreciate that. :)
