First Day

The first day of Kindergarten was a GREAT SUCCESS!!! I am loving all of my students and I know that we are going to have a super year! We had a long day learning about the rules, policies, and procedures of our everyday activities. This morning we learned all about the SMARTboard and the wonderful things it can do. This is how we will have our Morning Calendar Time. Morning calendar will include the actual calendar for each month, days of the week, months of the year, the weather, telling time, reading sight words, counting to the number of the day, counting by 2's, 5's, and 10's, and singing some really COOL alphabet songs! They loved all the songs and even learned the counting by 10's song!!! It was great to see them learning while having so much fun!

We also had to learn some procedures that aren't as much fun but still good to know: Pushing our chairs in, standing and walking in a straight line, how to sit in the cafeteria, raising our hand before talking, my name is Miss Austin not Teacher, and a BIG one - saying yes/no ma'am and yes/no sir!!! I believe RESPECT is a great place to start!

On top of all that the students were able to let out energy during 2 recesses! By the time 2:00 hit they were wore out and it was nap time! They were all out like lights!

It was such a wonderful day! I CANNOT WAIT FOR TOMORROW!!!
