That is how I will describe my first week of school in first grade. I can't say that it was perfect, but I can say that the students left happy, and that they learned what I wanted them to learn the first week. I was exhausted as I walked out of the school, but I left feeling confident that this year is going to be a great one. I have a lot of work to do to get these firsties ready to be in first grade, they are only used to being in school half a day so after lunchtime, these kiddos are DONE! Good thing I have the last lunch wave.
