First Two Days, Down!

I *finally* got to meet my new bunch of firsties on Thursday... and let me tell you, it didn't take long for me to fall in love!  They sure are a sweet group!  We had lots of fun the first two days, so let's take a look!

We completed our very first Chit Chat!  I've never done this before, but so far, I'm really liking it and the kids are too!  This first day Chit Chat was entirely inspired by The Inspired Apple... I copied it word-for-word {but I did use my own name} ha!

After reading First Day Jitters, we had some Jitter Juice {just .green Hawaiian Punch} to get rid of those butterflies!  

I'd say it was a hit!  The three who said "no" still drank every last drop?!  This worksheet is from Abby's Fun with Firsties unit.

Our sky wire was in need of decorating, so we made these crayon boxes from my a bright year {a craftivity} pack.  The crayons come out to reveal a writing prompt!

I need help with weeding {reading}!  LOVE that!!!  So cute :)

Of course, we went over rules and procedures... we always make sure to color in our behavior calendar at the end of the day.  This little one clipped up both days!

This little pic has nothin' to do with the first days of school, but I wanted to show you my completed birthday balloons!  So fun, and my kiddos are super excited to grab one on their special day!

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

Have a great weekend!!

I'm doing Jitter Juice also on our first day! I was going to use lemonade and seltzer but I think I like your idea better. Plus adding the label was such a cute touch!

I love your birthday balloons with straws! I do something similar, but I give out Smencils instead.

It sounds like you had a great first 2 days! I do a Morning Message with my class. It is similar to what you did, except my students have to find the mistakes and write the number on a post it. They LOVE this!

By the way, your room pictures from last post are wonderful! I love the colors!

Your week looked like so much fun! I'm so envious...I don't get my real class until TUESDAY!! ugh. That means no going over rules or expectations, just buying time. Your chit chat looked cute! Have a restful weekend!
