Today was the kid's first day of school! I have 16 students in my class this year, grades 2, 3, 4, and 5. A few of them are new, but most of my class is the same as last year. It is really great having the same students for a second year in a row. We had a really good first day together.
I was also able to switch into a bigger classroom this year. Last year my classroom was also the walkway to get to the bathroom and the copy room. As you can imagine, I had quite a bit of traffic going through my room every day. Now, my room is at the back of the school and no one has to walk through it to get to another part of the school. I'm looking forward to having less interruptions.
