Kinders and the first weeks of school

What to do with Kinders/1st grade the first week of school. Mmmmm

Those early lessons are always a dilemma for me. I’ve got a lesson planned using David Goes to School. I’m really happy with the lesson, but I’m thinking it might not have enough pop for the first week. I’d love for the kids to check out books. So, I’ve been digging, and I found this: Children’s Book Week: Kindergarten Style

What a great idea! Essentially kids are playing musical books (without anyone being eliminated). Kids are moving, exposed to a variety of books, and then they check one out. I think this one is a definite keeper.

Did get the clothes washed today. Started thinking about the new roman shades for the bedroom. I worked on an alphabetizing activity for BTS. Finished cutting out school items didn’t get cut out on the way to the beach.

Saw this on FB. Great idea for open house. Posted by School Outfitters.


Last night, I watched Jane Eyre.  It was decent.
