2 days and the first week of school is over! WOW, one can never prepare enough for how busy and overwhelmed one feels during the first week, even if it is only 2 days! Filling out and collecting paperwork, going over instructions/procedures, constant modeling, forming rules, and setting expectations collectively make the first 2 days exhausting but at the same time rewarding. What is accomplished and set as a firm foundation the first two days paves the rest of the year-176 days! We are off and chartering a course for learning, growing, teaching, and becoming independent 2nd graders!
