My first day went pretty well today. It started off kind-of rocky when I got into my room and realized that the before-care program will be in my classroom every morning from 7:30-8:15. I was hoping to get a few more things done this morning, but couldn't because of the kids that were in there. No biggie, though. Then, I start greeting parents and students at around 8:15 and a parent comes in with her daughter and her mother's adopted son. The kids are the same age and she had requested that both children be in the same class. Well, I didn't have him on my attendance list and the mom got a little upset. I ended up tracking down the principal, though, and apparently I was just given the wrong name. Soooo...I had to change the name tag on his desk and change my bulletin board, but the problem was solved! After that, things went very smoothly. I've already realized that I've got a few that I'm going to have to really stay on top of because they get distracted very easily, but with only 11 kids it should be a piece of cake! All in all, it was a pretty good day.
