The first week back from any break is always a long one! My kiddos were FABULOUS on Monday because they were so excited to be back at school and see all of the new things in the classroom! I had new name tags for them, class jobs, new seats, new pencils, and crayons, etc… By mid week, that excitement had died down and the TIREDNESS had set in!! Everyone was wiped out, including me!
But, we pushed on and got through the week, and even had a little fun while doing it! 🙂
On Monday, I started a new writing project with my kids and asked them to think about what their “Kinder” New Year’s Resolution would be! We talked about what resolutions are, and I had them brainstorm in groups what they think they could work on here in the classroom for the new year. On Monday, I had them draw their picture for this writing assignment and start thinking about what they would want their writing to be when we had small writing groups on Wednesday and Friday.
