10 days down and a freebie!!

Well, folks... we have survived the first 10 days of school with only a few bumps in the road. We have definitely faced some challenges at our new school but overall we are loving our new home! We quickly realized we have A LOT of work cut out for us this year but feeling very needed is a good thing!  Everyone at our new school has been so helpful and welcoming! Small schools are just awesome like that!

As you know we have a brand new reading series and we are tackling that monster head on! We plan to create a word work packet for each week to help our new first graders to catch up learn and master the new spelling patterns. Our new series is tough!

Here is a sample of our packet for week 2:  CLICK HERE to download this packet for FREE!!!!

School is always ALL CONSUMING at the beginning of the year but we have WEDDING on our minds! Brittany's wedding is LESS than two months away! We have her bridal shower and bachelorette just around the corner and her fabulous Maid of Honor (me-moi) is a having a hard time focusing on school with all of the exciting events for my best friends wedding floating around in my head.

"Sorry kids, your teacher will return (mentally) on October 21... post nuptials."
Hope everyone had a great start to their school year!!! As Brittany aways says, "Teach procedures, procedures, procedures and nothing will go WONG!" Ha! We are Harry Wong fanatics, what can I say!

  1. Oh man, I am having a lot of similar feelings! Our school also got a new reading series, which arrived just in time for school to start so there was no time to look through it and feel prepared. And I am getting married too!! I have a little more time until my wedding tho. It is April 26. Very exciting, but oh so stressful haha. And if all of that wasn't enough, I am finishing up grad school this year too! AHHH! I'll be blogging about it all over at my brand spankin new blog. :) I love reading all of the teacher blogs and your fabulous ideas, that I wanted in on all of the fun. Well girls, good luck with everything and if I don't get a chance to comment before the big day, Congratulations Brittany!
