First Day last!

Today was my first day back to school from winter break. Tuesday was supposed to be our first day back, but.......on Monday afternoon it started to S.N.O.W. So, we got a Snow Day {in capitals because it is an important day}. So, today we {tried} to stay on schedule. I did have to do several Dr. Jean movement songs this morning to get us {teacher included} ready to learn. I am so T.I.R.E.D. All of the blog stalking I did over break has gotten me totally off schedule. I was wore out by the end of the day. I feel like it was the first day of school. My kids did remember all the rules and had good behavior today. But, oh my was it a loooooong day!! I don't know if I could make it if we had to go five days this week. Thank goodness we only have to go three{thanks to our SNOW DAY}.

Oh, and who do you think stayed after school this afternoon to put up her bulletin board? Even though she was so T.I.R.E.D. Why do we do this to ourselves? I am now wishing I had came home and took a nap instead. Oh who am I kidding, I would have been reading teacher blogs instead of napping. I hope everyone had a good first day back or enjoyed the remaining days of their break.

I will post pictures of my board after I get them downloaded to my computer. If you haven't already checked it out Amy at Step into 2nd Grade with Mrs. Lemmons has a great template to use for the New Year's hats with resolutions.

  2. wow a snow day?! That's a way to make vacation last! How cool! (it's pretty warm here)

    I can definitely relate to putting up a bulletin board after an exhausting day... I put up a bulletin board on my first day back too and then came home and blogged about it. Although I wore myself out, it was totally worth it!

    Thanks for your comment tonight!
