So here goes:
5:00 am- My alarm goes off and sometimes I get up to be at school around 6:30. I like to get there early sometimes to get things done instead of staying late.
6:00 am- My alarm goes off again and I usually get up around this time ha! I get ready, kiss these two sweet boys goodbye, and head to work; often stopping at Dunkin' Donuts for a number 1 with 2 chocolate frosted sprinkles donuts and a
medium large vanilla ice coffee with lots of cream and sugar!
7:00 am- My coffee has kicked in, I've looked at a few cute blog ideas, maybe made something cute for the room, and I'm ready for my sweet class of 17 first graders.
7:50 am- The bell rings, I open my door, and greet my sweet little ones. I announce the lunch choices, remind them for the fifty millionth time what to do when they come in (love me some sweet little 6 year olds!) and we enter the room.
7:55 am- I announce the lunch choices again
7:56 am- "Mrs. McCartney, what are the lunch choices?"- BLESS IT!!! Selective hearing is so cute at this age right???
8:00- We are on the carpet ready for our morning meeting where one team gets to share, we listen to the school news, etc, etc.
8:20- We have four literacy/math center rotations while I pull small guided reading groups. I started this 3 weeks ago with the help of these ladies: Madefor1stgrade I've purchased 4 of their center packs so far and the kids and I are loving them! You must check these ladies out!
10:00- We have some fun with math
11:00- We're all starving and head for lunch!
11:35- We finally leave the cafeteria and head to recess. I love how it will be raining and the little ones will ask me "Are we going out to recess?"....I don't know are we?
12:15- Recess is over and we have some fun with writing, spelling, and social sciences.
1:00- We start cleaning up and packing up and I answer 50 million questions about all kinds of craziness!
1:25- We're headed to related arts and I'm thinking about which cute blogs I'll be visiting when I get back to the classroom. haha
1:25- AHHHHH silence and blog stalking time. :)
2:10- My sweet little class is back, we grab our backpacks, sit on the carpet and wait to go home!
3:15 or so- And I'm back in my car to see this sweet face!!! GAH I LOVE HIM!
