Our teacher, L, likes to call this day of the week "Fun Friday". It's a total change of schedule from the other 4 days; no projects, rarely a recess and not much time in the classroom. Also, it's her chance to have a wee bit of planning time--a sore point with her. I believe teachers in first through fifth receive either a half hour or an hour of planning time everyday. Kindergarten is a whole different world from the rest of the school, which is one of the reasons why we were chosen to be in the portable.
The morning class did a super job of listening and following directions during the Kid Pix exploration I led them through. I love the new set-up of Kim and I working with them together. She leads her class while I help and then we switch places with my class. Our new librarian has taken on the responsibility of reading and check-out with the wee folk, instead of Kim and I. Partly it's a relief, but we are sad about not having the weekly reading time. Between the two of us, we've collected around 75+ favorite books the past 6 years.
Today was a busy day, but a nice way to end the week. Of course, the sunshine doesn't hurt. :>)
