I could spit fire!

I am so mad.
Three days before school starts...
The principal informs me I am moving from Kindergarten to First Grade.
Ummm...ok, he told me today aft 3 pm.
I was so angry I channeled that energy into creating a 1st grade class from a Kindergarten class.
2 hours and 45 minutes later I had it almost perfect!
What the heck am I going to do??? I never taught first grade.

Here's the deal:
Last week I spent 14 hours in my classroom and more hours than I care to admit on line after hours at home creating a writers workshop for my kindergarten class. Prior to school ever starting. Today I arrived at 710 am in my class. I was the first teacher there. We were not to be there until 745 am. I left at 545pm, the last teacher out of the building.
I have spent the last 2 hours going through every book I own and marking them for the accelerated reading program by levels.
This is just the beginning....I have no idea what I am doing.

Pity parties are accepted!

Jake had a great dr. visit today! He is 5'4" and weighs 121 pounds. He got his shot and took it like a man!
Jayda's girl scouts was fabulous and she is so excited for a camp out next month.
Jay had a great first day of day care, he seemed to do just fine...except he was sent out to mike with a poopy diaper??? How long was he in that???
We are keeping track of his status and will keep you informed.

Good reports on the children...glad to hear their news. I'm in total disbelief of the kindergarten/1st grade switch. I can only imagine how you must feel...especially with such a short time to adjust. Mom

It must be in the air, my job duties have changed so much (8 times last school year) and over the summer, start tomorrow and for the life of me have no clue what exactly I am doing for my morning schedule...first time in 8 yrs...Pray that these are not omens for the school year! You will do fine which ever level but under stand the frustration ! !
