While I had an "end of VPK" celebration 17 days ago - today was the first day of school.
A new group of kids - and boy were they busy.
I swear, I do not know if every year they roll on the rug, cry that they are tired/hungry (all day long) and get into all my teacher stuff, but they did today.
They also participated really well during songs, listened during a story (yahoo!!) and everybody said they were happy to be at school.
Did I get to everything I planned - no. The stamina of these newbies is pretty small. But we will build upon it and in a couple of weeks - we'll be doing some awesome learning and playing.
All in all, a great first day!!
