First Week Complete!

It's hard to believe, but my first week back to school is complete! I must say I am utterly exhausted but I think it was all worth it. On the first day of school I took all the kids' pictures using this frame I made over the summer for Monday Made It. I framed each one and sent it home with the kids the next day. You should have seen the smiles!


The kids really enjoyed all the get to know you activities we did this week. I really can't believe how much we accomplished. The kids are really enjoying our Super In Second activities from Babbling Abby.

We made Jitter Juice for the kids to wash way all those flutters away from their tummies. They LOVED it! It was also wonderful to have because it was 100+ degrees all week.

We brain stormed ideas about what we did the night before we started second grade. Then the kids wrote about it and drew pictures. We are going to continue these activities into next week as well. 

We were able to review adding and subtracting strategies and the kids wrote and illustrated fact families.This is part of our math focus wall. 

This week's favorite activity was making our All About Me Glyphs. Our class was chosen to show case work in the Main Office the first month of school. I decided these glyphs would be perfect for it. My kids are so excited to have their work up already for everyone to see. Their favorite part in making these glyphs was giving their glyphs haircuts! We graphed and tallied all their answers and posted them on the board as well. 

So there you have it, a sneak peek into our very busy first week back to school. I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!
