All I can say about this quote is AMEN!
We had a fabulous first day of school today, but I am exhausted! My little kiddos did great. Not one asked to go home early or say I miss my mom. Woohoo! That's a successful first day right there! :)
If you don't follow me on facebook, check out my fan page to see my personalized computer backgrounds!
I have four student computers in my room and I created personalized backgrounds for Open House yesterday. I number my computers so now I just have it right on the computer and each with a different color. They are so cute!! :)
I want to share a couple back to school freebies with you. This first one isn't mine, but my kiddos loved it! Kathy over at First Grade a la Carte shared a couple of these puzzles a few weeks ago. Click the link *here* to go to her blog to download it. She also came out with a whole pack of puzzles if you want to purchase more! The kiddos cut out the capital letters and then matched them to the lower case letters....really tells you a lot about what they know on the first day of school.
We also read The Night Before First Grade by Natasha Wing and used my Night Before First Grade- Back to School Pack.
I love her drawing of my curly hair...looks just like me! And my color 'wheel' is actually a guitar so her picture is very accurate!! Sorry it's sideways, but it was so cute I had to share! If you click *here* you can download this page for free.
It is going to take me awhile to get used to getting up so early again. I am so tired I hope this post makes sense!! :)
Night! Have a great week!
