The first week in any classroom brings a dump truck load of thoughts and feelings. Kids are nervous, excited, overwhelmed, and often hungry. Hungry for food (at 10:00 in the morning) but also hungry to see “what comes next”. Teachers too have feelings of excitement, nervousness, and yes, hunger (My 10:00 am diet coke hit the spot all week) and so we spent the first week in Room 32 planting the seeds for growing into a 21st century learning community this year. Some of this week’s photos captured my favorite team building activity.
