Tonight is the first night we'll sleep in our new house. I have such mixed feelings. I loved my old house and I have so many memories of time spent with family and friends there. We put so much love into fixing it up to be just right for us and now we start all over again.
As I write this I think that's probably how my new students feel. They were cozy in kindergarten! Life was good there. We all have to move out of our comfort zone sometimes. It's time for me to move on. It's time for new memories. It's time for new life lessons.
I loved Chrissy's idea at Read Write Sing. She made a great freebie for kindergarten parents. I love her ABCs of Kindergarten. It got me thinking about what I could do for my first grade families to help them make the change from kindergarten to first grade. I'll be sending this along with my supply list and words to our morning song along with the next summer challenge. I hope this will help my students move into their new school home!
PS...It took me forever to write this post! I kept being interrupted by people wanting to know where stuff was. Oh the joys of moving. It was a long HOT night. I miss my AC, but we all survived and the house is starting to feel like home!
Here is the video I promised you of my Morning Song.
I actually learned it from this gorgeous girl when she
was in first grade!
