First day 2014-2015 is in the books.

No tired like first day tired.
Here it is by the numbers:
13 ‘staches
9 girls
4 boys
0 criers
13 name writers
1 SERIOUS talker
That’s an amazing group, right there!  I couldn’t be more happy with these ‘staches.  I have a feeling this is going to be an EPIC year!
So, how did we spend our first day?  Check it out…we were busy people!

When we arrived, we colored a picture of Mr. Greg.  I mean, why not have your kids color  a picture of you?!  It’s so fun to see them slowly start figuring it out….they think it’s hilarious!  
Then we read Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready For Kindergarten.  We talked all about school and kindergarten.  We even made a chart of all of things Miss Bindergarten did to get ready and all the things we did to get ready for kindergarten!
Quote:  “It sure takes a lot of things to get ready for kindergarten!”
HAHAHA have no idea ‘staches!

Then we learned all about crayons.  Mr. Greg started breaking crayons.  Es no bueno.  People, seriously almost had one girl cry when I started breaking crayons.  They were quite disturbed by the breaking of crayons.  Lesson learned!  Then we practiced coloring with our soccer ball!  Seriously good coloring from all of the ‘staches.  I’m tellin ya…EPIC year…
Then we wrote our name on our chart.  Everyone can write their name.  We need a little refinement but seriously impressed with these names.  Guess we’re getting journals on Monday!
Of course we had to wear mustaches and our first silly hat of the year!!  
And what better way to end the first day of kindergarten than with a mustache cookie!  Yeah, we’re that awesome!
First day fun!
And now…it’s time for ya’ll to show off your TEACHER STYLE!
Here is my epic first day of school outfit.  Bicycle and Unicycle pants?  Check.  Rainbow shirt?  Check.  

Now I want everyone to link up with a blog post or Facebook post or Instagram post or tweet and share your first day of school outfits!  Let’s show our #teacherstyle!

    I LOVED the name writing and soccer ball activities. Great beginning of the year assessments. I didn't get to go to any of your workshops this summer, but I look forward to seeing you in Vegas next year. Thanks so much for sharing your outstanding resources.
