If you are reading this I am currently in my 2nd grade classroom attempting to manage 23 seven year olds. I'm not sure how this is going to go...
If nothing else preparing for the day has been fun.
Labeling is one of my favorite things about being a teacher (it's the little things, okay). So imagine my excitement when I connected these two names* after reading the class list. I will definitely be pushing a love connection! These two kiddos are destined to be with one another. Walt Disney says so.
Creating my mini-me paper sack example, Marc Jacob shoes included. Obviously I underestimated the proportions of my head to my giant body and I seem to be slightly colorblind but hopefully the kids will look at this and take the "what not to do" route.
Last but not least, I had to go shoe shopping this weekend. The principal dumped a bucket of cold, cold water the other day when discussing appropriate foot attire. Conclusion: no open toed shoes. Hello! That's almost my entire shoe collection! We live in the Hot Hot Heat! How will my toes survive the summer recess blocks?! Hence my Toms solution. I'm jumping on the Tom bandwagon a bit reluctantly but, considering their wide array of colors and closed toed style I may end up becoming a junkie.
It looks like with these three details, I'm mentally ready: 2nd grade, here we go!
