You guys should be used to me apologizing at the beginning of every post. For real. Ha!
But honestly, I have finally found the time to apply for American citizenship.
So I had to drive to Raleigh this past week for pictures and biometrics. Then, as part of being Elementary Teacher of the Year for my district, I had to present at the beginning teacher orientation on Tuesday. Great experience! Add to that, the fact that my biggest priority are my two little boys… who also need to be fed and taken care of.
Are you all in school yet? I have been at it since July 21st and once again I have been blessed with the happiest bunch of first graders. We have learned about rules, Daily 5 routines, and comparing numbers. We have been getting to know each other and forging connections that will last forever. With all these necessary routines, August is coming to and end and September is just around the corner. And you know very well what September means… APPLES!
These are some fun, great, intentional activities that we all can do while using our instructional time wisely!
