First Week's Activities!

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to for Five for Friday.
Whew!  I survived my first week back to school!  I liken the first day to childbirth….you forget how how hard it is until you go through it again!
I feel like this is an accurate representation of me at the end of the week.  :)
This picture is what I felt like!
I am going from a half day program to a full day.  It's definitely different, but I have to say I think I'm really going to like it.
One of the reasons I am SO very tired is I received my furniture {did I say I moved to a different school, too?} two days before school started.  This is what my room looked like on Monday.
This is what it looked like on Wednesday.
Needless to say, there was not much sleep going on in-between.
Our first day pic.
I have some serious sweethearts in my class.  L.O.V.E.
We also drew ourselves on the first day,
 which became our new bulletin board.
It's always interesting to see the different stages of my little learners.  I love seeing the growth throughout the year.
We also played "What's In My Backpack?"  We sorted things you could/should bring to school in your backpack vs. things that you wouldn't bring to school.  Afterward, the little ones colored their own backpacks and then glued on pictures of things you would bring to school.
You can pick up this freebie HERE.
One of the things I love about this age group is you can see a whole lotta learning going on in the mind of a four year old.  Their play IS learning.  Check it out…..
I have a feeling it's gonna be a good year!
Link up your week with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

Thanks for reading!  Have a great day.  :)


  1. What a fabulous looking room! Yep, play is learning, even for 6 year-olds. Have a restful weekend!

  2. Wow, you had a bunch of furniture to unpack and put together. We just expanded to a second four year old room in our school, so I spent some of yesterday helping unpack and screw together furniture for the new room. Fortunately we don't start until September 2, but I still feel behind and our first official work day is not until Monday.

  3. So happy to see this blog! Awesome pictures and thank you for great effort putting them together
