*sigh* Many of you probably already know that I was switched last minute from 5th grade to kindergarten this year so I didn't get my own class until the 4th day of school. Well, being that I've always taught 5th grade I had NOTHING for K. I put in a $100 order with money from the school with Bender for items that I would need. Posters and art supplies for the art center mostly. I scrounged up some books that were mine as a child or a gift when I was in college (100 book library ranging from K through 6 level) so I have a few books. Was frustrated all along that stuff was supposed to be here like Monday (by the way I'm still missing 5th grade materials from Bender that were ordered on July 1) and they didn't get here until yesterday. I got excited that they are finally here and want to do my art center today to give the kids something different. They won't let me have my stuff yet and its out on the stage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I still don't have my own teaching manuals so I'm using my copies (we get a set number of copies for the year) to make copies of the lessons from the book (reading is up to 10 pages a day!) so that I can even teach....I'm ready for this to be a FUN year.....I'm excited that I have little ones, I've missed them! It's just so hard to stay positive when stuff should get better and doesn't. Now I have to stay late today to unpack my order and get stuff together. I can't organize myself until that stuff comes in (i have the organization station in there as well as a 10 shelf mailbox for copies to organize). *sigh* And I don't even want to stick to my weight watchers today...and I weigh in tonight....i'd rather have the mac & cheese and fish sandwich that's offered for lunch!!!!!!
