First Day of School 2012

Today was Kyli's first day of 4th grade and Kenna's first day in 1st grade. 
It did not start off good for Kenna. She didn't like her outfit that she picked out at Justice cuz it just didn't fit right. After mouthing and screaming Chris busted her butt! UGH! She cried for about 20 minutes and then finally decided to change her clothes. She is the pickiest when it comes to clothes.

 Our theme this year is Ms. McDonald had a farm. My principal's name is Ms. McDonald. We are having fun with this them. Me and my two teaching partners are the Three Little Pigs.

I am exhausted. I have 25 first graders. Yes, 25! Isn't that crazy. I am worn out. The good news is the are pretty good kids. I have a couple of boys that I will have to set straight but other than that it will be good. I have 16 boys and 9 girls! Holy Moly! The entire first grade class is boy heavy. Please say prayers for me that they hire another teacher. I don't think that with 25 kids you can have affective teaching. 16 is the golden number. I know that will never happen again! These kids need smaller class sizes so they can get some awesome small group instruction and guided reading. NOT happening with 25 kids. Please take them time and thank your child's teacher. Also, please volunteer in their classroom. My bestie, Shelly, spent the morning in my class and is coming again tomorrow. She is a HUGE blessing and lifesaver to me! Mom, hurry home! I am so ready to put you to work! Have a blessed week!
