Day one...


We went over policies and procedures. We got to know each other. We built marshmallow towers. 


 I learned all their names. 


The best part is that this child is in my homeroom class. If you read my other blog, you are well acquainted with Noodle.

Exciting! I get to have my own child in my classroom this year as well. I am so excited to teach her and see her in a new way. Your classroom looks great, by the way!!

Nothing like a good marshmallow tower to start off the year.

Awww.. how wonderful you have your own little sweetheart in your class!

I can see why some policy and rules reviewing was in order.

I wish you (and her) the best school year ever!

Go give them kids some really BIG BRAINS!!!

Ava ~ I use the Marshmallow tower project to begin team building and strengthen community. The most important lesson is listening and cooperation.

Good luck to you and Noodle this year. That can be a challenge, but I bet you two can make it work. My father was a high school math teacher. I went to "the other high school" in town, but boundaries were changed, and both my sister and brother went to his high school and ended up in his math class during their high school years. My sister still says he was one of her best teachers ever. I'm hoping Noodle says that about you. (By the way, your girls are so pretty!)
