OH! NO! August Is Here!

Are you ready to start the new year?

The school year is upon us. Your curriculum is scattered all over your living room floor, you feel as if the weight of the world is on your shoulders and there is no possible way for you to gather the materials needed to begin the year. Once again you ask yourself what you have gotten yourself into.
But then you remember!!!! All those smiling faces that greet you every morning, the laughter that fills the air, and the hugs you receive through out the day.
Yes this is such a rewarding career! And yes this can also be a very stressful career! But you are one step ahead this year right? HA! If you are anything like me the beginning of the school year means that your house gets neglected, your children consider institutionalizing you, the dog is scared of you, and you look like you haven't slept in a year!

Well this year I thought I would try and take a little stress off you and share with you the ideas that I have been using in my classroom. This is the beginning of the year. What you do in the first month sets the pace of what your school year will be like. Let's try and make it a fun filled and adventurous one!

August Themes

These are the themes that I use during the first few weeks of school.
I consider this to be a time of getting to know one another and sharing with each other.
Have fun with the themes!

Me, Myself & I

The Five Senses

My Family
