Great News

Hello All! I am so excited~woohoo~party time…I just got the call today from our new principal…I am officially teaching 5th grade this school year. Whew! I have so much to do these next two weeks. I have to learn to be smarter than a 5th grader and I have to figure out what to do with all of my stuff from Kindergarten-aaahhhh! I have In-service tomorrow (that means I am in class all day-so hard to stay awake-I am used to 20 minute intervals from Kindergarten-lol) and I start back on the 28th of July. I will meet my new 5th graders on July 30th. I know I need to be posting about my vacation…but I have to downsize all of my photos-anyone know an easy way to do this all at once with all of them???

  14. Do only the teachers go back that early, or are you talking about the students too? Congratulations on moving up to fifth grade! I bet you will have a lot of funny stuff to put on your “mouths of babes” page. Isn’t fifth grade when they start writing five sentence paragraphs?
