I can't believe today is the first day of school. The summer went by quickly but it's good to be back at DES. I can already tell that this group of children is going to be awesome. There are 21 children in the class; all bringing their unique personality to the mix!
This morning we spent a good bit of time learning the routines and expectations in the classroom.
We also set up our notebook (binder). Some children need to purchase larger binders so that everything fits. Most children brought their own pocket folders, since it was on the supply list. However, this summer, the school made a decision to purchase plastic folders for the children. These will serve as their home folders. Therefore, the children will not need the paper pocket folders.
We also took a math preassessment for unit 1. This helps me determine what students already know and what they need to learn. It will also be used to create math classes. Some students will be going to Mr. Vogel for math; others will stay with me.
This afternoon we will be visitng the media center and checking out books. We will also meet the new media specialist, Mrs. Rose.
