This & That

Hey everyone! 
Good news... we are in the second week of 5th grade.... and... 

I AM ALIVE!!! (!)

Actually, alive & IN LOVE!
 No, really. L.O.V.E.!!!

I am seriously having a moment.

It may be the honeymoon stage, or whatever, but 5th grade is seriously so. much. fun! 
The kids are big, yes.

But I can actually have CONVERSATIONS with them.
Yes, all my kindergarten teacher friends. 
IMAGINE THAT. 
REAL conversations. With the kids. 

AND

they can FOLLOW DIRECTIONS. 
LIKE THE FIRST TIME.

AND

The can do things INDEPENDENTLY. 
Seriously, I forgot kids can do that the first 5 months of school.

AND
(one more thing)

I don't feel like I got run over by a semi when I get home from work!
Seriously, good stuff here, people!!

Okay, since we are being honest here, I have to list the cons.

CONS:
None of the kids have told me how much they love me,
and I have only gotten like 2 hugs since the first day of school.

But,
the year is still young. :)

Anywhoo, I am sorry that I don't have lots of great pictures to share...
 BUT, I did manage to snap a few as I was walking out the other day.

Random, yes.

But fun nonetheless! :)

 My welcome back Instagram door!
The kids drew selfies the first day of school.


Close Reading Anchor Chart. We are learning about Human Rights and doing LOTS of close reading.

Random side note: See that pencil sharpener? It's a School Smart Electric Sharpener.
Going on 3 years and STILL GOING STRONG. It's from Amazon and you can get it here.
Worth every penny!  

Have a great week!
:)
