My FIRST first day of school!
If you have been following my blog or have read the "meet the teacher" page, you know that I graduated in December and got hired as a middle school reading teacher in January. So, today was my FIRST first day of school. I am worn out! It was a great day though and I have a great class of 24 third graders!

About half of my kiddos remembered their lunch numbers, but most forgot. I also had several that were new to the district, so I had to tell each student their number when they went through the lunch line. So tomorrow, everyone is getting a lunch number BRACELET! :) Clever, right!? I plan on doing the bracelets all week to help kiddos memorize them!
I never showed you my finished calendar! Thanks Leigh Anne at Simply Swarbrick for the idea to add the days and months!
I hit up Staples after school today and got 2 1" binders, 12 pocket tissue packs, a pack of 28 Cadoodle pencils, 6 composition notebooks, a U.S. foam puzzle, and 3 black Pilot FriXion erarseable pens for....$1.22! YES! THAT'S RIGHT! I used my B2S coupon and my Rewards coupons. You can't beat that!
Also, THESE PENS ARE AWESOME!!! Get them now if you haven't already!
How was your first day of the 2013-14 school year?!
