Exhausted but triumpant

I made it through my first week!  The class is great!  Still a little talkative, but they did a fantastic job this morning working independently while I pulled students for assessments.

I started the week by reading Decibella and Her 6-inch Voice by Julie Cook to help kids understand voice levels.  I also made a poster that I refer to before sending them to work:

I only had one morning crier all week!

And now, a nice, relaxing weekend before doing it all again.

  1. Well done on getting through your first week! I love the poster you made – super cute 🙂

    • Thank you! I was very critical of it when I was making it, but kept reminding myself it didn’t have to be *perfect*. The end result made me so happy. The kids really seem to like it, too.
