I only wish I could have shown this-but SMART Board projector is still broken...
I have 16 cherubs and all showed up today!
We completed The Marshmallow Challenge to help us with our group work and creative/critical thinking.
We also saved Fred for the 3rd year in a row! (That worm needs to go to boat school!)
We started our Hopes and Dreams-which is a precursor to creating our classroom rules.
I started with this book
Then it was their turn to create their hope and dream for the school year!
We ended our day with the fabulous The Dot lesson that I found on The Teacher Studio.
We talked about what lessons we could learn from the book.
Then it was time to paint!
I think their favorite part was the painting! :)
Then we had the Opening Day BBQ (I stayed at school since it would have been pointless to go home), which wasn't really a BBQ since the budget was cut-more of a potluck!
First Day outfit (which got TONS of compliments!):
Shoes: Nine West through 6pm.com
