I made it through my first week of school. Meet the teacher was Tuesday night and I greeted 22 smiling first graders on Wednesday morning for our first day of school. It was a great 3 days. Everything went smoothly and my sweeties are super cute, fun and polite! It's a great bunch and I'm really excited to have lots of fun this year. I am seriously exhausted though! I totally missed the whole teacher week fun and feel like I've seriously neglected this blog, my house and my hubby, this week. But I think I'm getting caught up and ready to roll through this new year.
This week we did some cute getting to know you activities and discussed rules. We also did our annual Kissing Hand Hunt. The kids have a blast looking for Chester while getting familiar with our school. The hunt ends back at our room where they always find Chester has left some super delicious cookies! Check out or first week fun below.

Aren't my students adorable?
In my quest for cute clipart, DeeDee Wills of Mrs. Wills Kindergarten shared this artist's work. Her name is Kirsten McGrath and her store is called Digital Doodles. She is a teacher herself and her graphics are so flippin' adorable. She allows selling and sharing and her sets are affordable as well. In fact she is currently running a sale!

I just happened to purchase several sets of Kirsten's today and made this little book for my book center next week. We'll be reviewing colors, so when I saw this cute clipart I couldn't resist.Brown Bear Book
I hope you all had a great week if you are back to teaching. And if you aren't teaching yet, get some sleep. Believe me you'll be exhausted like the rest of us soon!
