I don't know about you all, but I could hardly get to sleep last night from the excitement! I don't know what it is, or if it will ever go away, but the night before the first day of school, my mind is racing with thoughts of what the year will hold! Even though I go to bed early, I'm still awake way past my bedtime! I am so happy to say that after meeting all of you today, I am sure that this year is going to be the best yet! There are so many fun things that I can't wait to do and explore with you! This week we'll be working a lot on establishing our classroom rules and expectations so we can keep sailing as we go through our the year. Don't worry, there will be some kind of engineering activity each day as well! Next week we'll start working with the curriculum more in depth. After seeing the awesome name tags you created today, I can't wait to see what great projects you will share with me later. I also think class dojo is going to be fantastic! If you haven't done so already, change your avatar and get your parents to look at it with you. I think you're all going to be pleased to know that you've already earned a few extra beans this week! Go find out how!
