The First Day of School

Monday was very special for Sophia and I. For her, it was her first official day of PK (From here on out, Melanie will be getting them Kindergarten ready. By the end of this year, they should know how to tie their shoes, read at least on a kinder. level etc.). Prior to this year, they were doing pre-kinder. work. Now they'll be doing kinder. work. Ms. Melanie uses the last year with her as a kinder. year (as she is a certified kinder. teacher). So, Sophia picked out a special first day of PK dress and we took a few pics. But the lighting wasn't that great since they left at 6:45 in the morning.

It was also a HUGE day for me. My first day at my new school.  So here's my new art room.

Here's my little corner....

Lovin' this idea I stole/borrowed from Pinterest, for table colors.

Monday went well. 

Of course for me, I have to repeat the same lesson in some variation, 28 times. So, I'll just say I was a little rusty at first. But by Tuesday, I was in my groove. I'm sure by Thursday, I'll be leaving out important info. But that's just part of it. 

7 Grade levels x 4 classes per grade level= 28 times of introducing the art room, procedures etc. = me loosing my voice by the end of the week= me buying cough drops at Walgreens today. Ha! 

Oh well, by next week, I'll starting new things with each grade level. And I'm really enjoying meeting all of my new kiddos/neighbors!

Sophia looks beautiful!

And I love your art room. I don't know if I could do anything 28 times in a row! I might have to record myself the first time and then play it for the other kids.

They are lucky to have you!
