While not the first day of my student teaching/taking over the classroom, it WAS the first day back with all the kids today!
The day flew by as we went through procedures covering everything from sharpening pencils to start of day procedures. We made our new class rules list and reviewed all consequences – including reinforcers in the classroom!
We have an in-progress summer reading bulletin board outside our classroom. I am excited to hang up these sweet summer reading creations on our ice cream truck bulletin board tomorrow! I wrote about my love for Clements’ Frindle!
It was a wonderful start to my own year – I feel so lucky to have such a terrific class with whom to share my student teaching experience!
