Twisted Tuesday and 15 Students!!

I have internet again!! :) Last week, I was so frustrated with my fiance's SUPER SLOW, like it takes 3 mins to load a page slow, and so I called Century Link to speed it up. Well, when they were doing their work they didn't connect something right, so I have been without internet at our house since last Thursday. It has been awful! I was so happy after my walk this morning that it was all fixed. Can I get a hallelujah? :)

Since, I have not had internet I have been spending a lot of time with my puppy and my family. It has been so great to get these last few weeks of time with them! Last night a bunch of my fiance and I's friends came over for a game night. It was great to see everyone!

Yesterday, I brought my Fiance to come and see my classroom. The past two years, we have been doing the long distance thing, so it was great to have him come and help. I had a stack of laminating to cut out, so I put him to work. Then, when our IT person came to bring me my IPad, he fixed my broken lap. What a sweetie! Here is a picture of him working his butt off:

Talking about Ipad, I am so excited! I have never had one before, so I feel like a little kid playing with a new toy. We get around 5 for our class to use, and then there is a cart if we want to do a whole class thing. If you have any great Ipad suggestions let me know. I would love to hear them.

At the end of last school year, the Kindergarten team put together our class list for this year. Each 1st grade classroom had 17, well today we got an updated class list and I only have 15!  I am so excited to have a little class, and to be able to connect better with each and every little face! My first year teaching, I had around 13-15 in my classroom, and last year I had 23. The small size was so wonderful. I felt like I always got time for each kiddo, and was able to do so much more.

Okay this post has been all over the place. I am just starting to plan for the start of school so stay tuned! We don't start till after Labor Day, so I am soaking up the end of summer. On Thursday and Friday though, I am going to a PBIS training. I think it will be great to hear all the great insite from this training.

Have a super Tuesday!

  3. Awww, my hubby cuts laminating sometimes too. Too cute. :) Lucky you with your numbers! We will probably be around 21 or 22 to start and likely more will come as I teach in a more transient district. We have 3 iPads in our classroom and I love it! Good luck with them!
