And my school does NOT have A/C! Talk about sweaty! I decided yesterday to skip the gym because I sweated enough at school. Today we took "ice breaks"...aka we rubbed ice over our faces and neck, then got all goofy because who has an ice break at school!? My kiddos are great and the principals are doing anything to keep us cool. Bringing us water, ice, and popsiclse!
Besides all the sweating we have been doing some school related activities! My kiddos are so eager to learn! All day yesterday I heard, "When is math?" "When is science?" "WHEN ARE CENTERS!?" I had to explain it was the first day and we couldn't do everything on the first day. So when I said we were going to explore snap cubes everyone was cheering!
After we explored our cubes, I started making up story problems for them to solve using the cubes. Then of course I let my kiddos come up and make up their own story problems! Yes, one of the problems included Christmas presents and underwear. I am loving these new grades! Even though a couple tried to tell me they were in 2nd and got all "confused" when I caught them in their little lies. My new life as a 1st/2nd grade teacher!:)
