Remember my last post? The one with my classroom pictures? Did you notice that everything in that room was third grade? Cursive, multiplication, five hardback textbooks in each desk, names taped to the tops of the desks, third grade overviews on reach desk...the whole nine yards. Everything was ready. The parents and kids were showing up for the meet and greet at 5PM. Twas the night before the first day of school.
And then, I got moved back to first grade at 4:45PM.
So, I met and greeted parents and their 6 year olds in my third grade classroom, explained everything, then called reinforcements (big M) to come help me change 3rd into 1st. And we did our best.
So this morning, I had 26 six-year-olds sitting in a-little-too-tall desks...cursive gone and print back up, multiplication gone and number charts back up, third grade mature stuff gone, primary stuff back up.
And we had a great time today.
Lemons, ya know?
