My First Day of School

The same day that the kids started school, I had my first "official" day back to school. Needless to say I have been working on my classroom for two weeks prior to our "official" day back. I was given a wonderful opportunity to move up to the fours when Ms. Denise decided to go back to school and step down to an assistant position. I was very excited to move up, I have wanted to for a couple of months now. Well because of this move, I had to move all my stuff from a threes class cabinet to my new class cabinet. I also had to rearrange the classroom so it would work for my style of teaching. I think it looks wonderful and welcoming.
Here is some video of my classroom, you can decide for yourself whether you think it is welcoming.

I have a great group of boys and girls. I have 6 children right now, four boys and two girls. I am sure that the class size will grow, since I am the smallest class, I will get any new students till I catch up with the other classes. But for now I am praising God for a great size class. We will be able to do so much more with just 6.

I have had my first day of school and it was great. Things went very smooth.

I just love the kids, already. I love teaching and I am so happy to be back. I am a little overwhelmed with the difference in the 4k standards, but I am excited for the challenge. Thank goodness I am working with 2 wonderful women Monday thru Friday who will show me the ropes.
This post is a work in progress. It is now September 11th and I have added one student. I now have 5 boys and 2 girls. (September 15th) I rearranged my room a bit today, I took down a big mural that was on the wall and added an area for us to hang our wet artwork. I also moved my shapes posters to the same wall so it would look better.
Hope you have a great day.

Yessssss! It looks good, but with the music in the backgroung (that I love by the way...), it is hard to hear you while you do the tour.
