We had a VERY busy week establishing the rituals and routines in our first grade classroom. The students were pros at remembering some of the routines from the past and quickly learning some new routines. We are so proud of everything we accomplished in our first week of school. Take a look at us in action. Roll your cursor over each picture, for the ritual and routine.

Wow! What a great day we had. It all started this morning when Mrs. Phillips had music playing in the front hall. The music really helped set the mood of the day. We were so happy to see all of the happy faces in our room.
We saw familiar faces as well as new ones.
Also mid morning we went to the dining room to see a great band that played music from different genres. We had fun dancing and singing.
At the end of the day we had a man playing the steel drums as the students left.
This is going to be a great year.

Well, tomorrow is the first day of school. We are so excited about the upcoming year. That also means it has been one year since we started this blog. It blows our mind to think that over 9,000 times people have logged on to read our blog. We hope to continue sharing about our class with you. As you read in the next few weeks, you will notice we have about 10 new students in our room this year and we are now in First Grade. We are looking forward to getting to know them. Please check back tomorrow to see pictures of our class.

Hi Everyone! We hope you are enjoying your last two weeks of summer vacation. We have been busy planning and setting up our classroom. We can't wait for you to see the changes. Be prepared to get Funky in First Grade! We have received a few letters from you over the summer. It's not too late for you to write. Drop us a letter this week and let us know what you have been doing this summer. Also try to think of something new you would like to learn about this year so we can included it in our plans for the year. See you soon!
