ready or not here they come...

This evening was Back to School Night. We put on a little presentation for some of our families and I got to see some of my students from last year who transformed into first graders over the summer.  They walked the halls with their heads high and a new found confidence, after all they are now a year older and wiser and this is their school.

I met a few of my students...there were already some nervous tears and the token child who runs ramped around the room. I've been thinking about my new group of students and all they have to learn; how to sit criss cross applesauce, how to hold a pencil, how to stand in line, how to raise their hand to speak...I could go on all night.

My room is ready for new adventures, new learning and exploring, and new friends. A new year to start fresh, a year filled with endless possibilities.  

Here's to a brand new sparkling school year and here's to the new class of 2024!


  1. Class of 2024?! Oh my, that makes me feel old.

  2. You have a smart board! I love those! :)

  3. I love your rug I went online and saw that it is like $350...yikes way over my budget! Good luck!!

  4. Don't you love the beginning of a new school year? And Kindergarten is so different from every other grade. My grandma taught Kindergarten for 25 years and loved every day of it!

  5. My daughter will be starting kinder this year. Where in Colorado are you?? I'm in the Springs....
