Boy, do I feel frazzled! Today was the first full day of school. I seem to always forget that 6th graders come to me not knowing how to do simple things. We spent two class periods just organizing our notebooks and going over procedures. I had this one kid ask me “Do we have to go over each of these bullets(on the syllabus)?” I actually said, “Well, yes…have you ever been in my classroom before? You need to know how I do things.” Other than that incident the day went by smoothly. The first weeks of school are always so tiring b/c you have to go over and over procedures and rules. I am hoping that tomorrow I’ll get some writing in.
