A lot of us started school last Tuesday and I want to hear how everyone's first week was! I am exhausted!!!! I'm at school 12 hours almost every day and I feel that I could still stay longer. We had that tropical storm last Friday so they sent us home at 10 in the morning, right after our faculty meeting with only ten minutes to leave. I had nothing planned because we were supposed to plan together as a grade level after the meeting, but we were sent home! Because I only had ten minutes, I only had time to grab my lesson book and a few things I could do at home and leave! Luckily I met with a couple of teachers over the weekend so we could plan together. My kids are definitely kindergartners! The first day was horrible, just as I knew it would be. They cried a lot because they didn't understand why they couldn't go to housekeeping during circle time or why they couldn't eat when they wanted to, etc. But I was prepared for this. They're also fighting with each other and always talking, but each day is getting better. They're finally starting to see our routine (even though it doesn't feel like the talking issue is getting better). My room is definitely not ready. I still need to organize a lot of things but the kids don't know this! Its also hard for me because I feel that I have so much stuff to keep track of and I still don't know my new schools procedures with everything. This is my first year so I'm learning so much! I wish more than anything that I could get in my room on a weekend and just work all day without any interruptions. How is everyone else doing?
