Summer is over! School has started.
Day 1 was a bit hectic, with no official prep days. Good thing Julie and I came to school for 3 days to get my room ready. I had a list of things I wanted to get finished, and I knew I probably wouldn’t finish all of them. Besides the stuff the school wants me to do, I did fluff, partly to get the class to get to know each other, and partly to give them a chance to practice the classroom procedures.
Did I mention the 31 students I have in class? And I’m lucky, there are 32 students on my list. Two didn’t show up, but a girl who was not on my list was assigned to me. Kelly, next door, has 33 kids! I think the other 4th grade class has 31.
Ninety-five students in 3 classrooms. That’s a lot of kids. I think all the classrooms are at at least 30. The lower grades are freakin’, because they’re used to 20.
