First Day Jitters

The first day was a HUGE success. This class is wonderful. I believe this was my smoothest first day in ten years! Thank you for sending your children to me so well prepared and mannered. I can already see that I have a special group of children, eager to please and learn. 

On the first day, we read First Day Jitters, wrote about our "jitters", drank Jitter Juice (a very special and secret recipe which cured all those jitters), and wrote some more about how our first day jitters had disappeared. Be sure to check out our writing in the hallway. 

We also played a school supply game and learned about the clip chart as well as our five rules... 1. Follow directions quickly and quietly. 2. Raise your hand for permission to speak. 3. Raise your hand for permission to leave your seat. 4. Make smart choices, and worry about ME. 5. Keep your dear teacher happy. <<<< My favorite!

If the first day is an indicator of how well this year will be, I think it's pretty safe to say we're going to have an amazing time in second grade together!
