I'm hoping that by October I'll have a "school" routine in place---not for the kiddos---but for me. Ya know, the whole going to bed at a decent time, waking up refreshed, ready, remembering that walking on a hard floor all day KILLS my legs by Thursday....all that sort of stuff.
I did remember to take a "few" pictures this week. So far my kiddos are adjusting well...one little friend (a Kindergarten repeater) has had a difficult time this week (hitting adults and such) but other than that...it's getting there. Once I break about two more in with the routines and procedures I think we will be set. Hopefully they will all be used to everything by the time our first field trip rolls around.
Yep I said it. Field trip. The sometimes dreaded days where we take over 120 some kiddos OFF campus. I get nervous right before the trip, but once we get on the road to wherever we are going, it all ends up being ok.
Every year our county assigns a particular day for K students to go to the county fair. So our day is Friday, Oct. 4th. Glad it's a Friday! :)
And in preparing for that, I've been updating my Farm Fun with Literacy & Math pack this week. It has gone from 64 pages to 114 pages. Whew what a task.
I added addition puzzles, picture puzzles, ten frame practice, alphabet and number practice with recording sheets, etc. etc.
Here's your chance to grab it up! Two easy ways to win!!

Rant time----why did Google take away the Add Text feature to photos???? Grr...I use Picasa, but I 95% of the time used Google to add text to my photos b/c I take my pictures on the school ipad with Google+.....geez....aggravating!!
Here are a few pictures from the week.
