Joy, Joy, Joy!!!!!!

     Well, I have a lot of reasons to be joyful today! We have been out of school 7 days, due to the tornado that destroyed my school last Monday. Today was the first day back, and my kiddos were so excited to see me. One ran in and wrapped his arm around me! 

     We discussed the tornado, and one student told me that she missed our old school. So do I! Thankfully I was able to get most of the things out of my classroom, to make it feel like home again.

      So, we are in a school in our feeder pattern, and it was like the first day of school times 100! We had to learn new routines and procedures, which can be overwhelming for Kindergarten!

      The biggest change is that we have to walk outside for everything, so we had to wear ponchos to lunch, since it rained today. :-(

     In other news, I sold my first 2 units today on TPT!!!!!! YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!!!! It's not too late to get your copy of A Celebration of Black History! Visit my TPT store by clicking here. Tomorrow (although it was supposed to be last week) we celebrate the 100th day of school AND Groundhog Day!

Talk to you later!
