Happy Hump Day! It was such a great day being back in the land of the mustaches with my ‘staches after two days at the TN K conference!
This is what we celebrated today:
This little guy came to me with nothing. Nothing. This is growth over the last 4 weeks!!!!! I was so excited when we finished his testing….but he was even more excited! He was so proud of himself!!!!!!! I know teaching gets hard….the mandates…initiatives…paperwork….and all of the politics that keep us from teaching….but this is why we do what we do. It’s all about those little ones who come to us with a burning desire to learn. Remember, we work for our students.
I have 13 CEOs. I work for them. That is all.
I’ll say it again: CLOSE THE DOOR AND TEACH ON!
At the conference, I got asked two questions over and over again!
What is your daily schedule?
And can you please share your playlist? (I had music playing as people came into the sessions!)
So here are the answers to both of those questions:

In your schedule, I see that there isn't a block of time for science/social studies. When do you cover these subjects and when do you do your “special” activities like Food Friday and your fun science experiments? Do you have a daily snack?
Do your kids really only have half an hour of play time a day? And they are there for that long? Is that mandated? Just curious. I know you love GoNoodle. I do too, but our kids get three recess in a traditional full day class. I also have 27 kids which amps up the energy.
Wow! That's a brutal schedule for 5 year olds! 13 littles would be pretty wonderful!!!
Only 13… How wonderful
