This ones for you dawn! :-D
Hi Dawn! I realized I hadn't updated since Sunday and that I probably should since I know you (Dawn) are interested in my life lol! Yesterday was the best first day anyone could ask for. Granted it was hectic and confusing...but the kids held in there with us and were wonderful! Today wasn't too bad either, though the kids personalities were really starting to shine through which was neat to see on the one hand than aggravating on the other. I taught my first lesson of the semester today. It was a health lesson....the general idea of it was that just because everyone looks different were all the same on the inside.....which the kids got right off the bat....and than we also covered that its ok to be different (looks, personality, likes, dislikes, talents, etc.) because are differences are what make us special. So it was the feel good lesson of the year. Though I did learn that M&M's and 2nd graders do not mix very well because the kids focused on the M&M's more than they did me. Tomorrow we will cover feelings and how to deal with them....I think....I dunno the days blur together lol....Well thats really it....Im gonna chill out for a bit hopefully go to bed at a decent hour tonight.
