As soon as 5:30 hit, I realized what I was missing: the community of learners...my students. I know it sounds cliche, but welcoming the families really made the room feel better.
I'm excited for what this new school year will bring and so happy to have the students I have. Here's to a great 2014-2015 school year!
We had a station where students built a representation of themselves with only 20 Legos!
We also had a station where students wrote an "I am" poem. And there was another station where students wrote their names and numbers on an index card to go on their crate!
And a photo booth, of course!
