Middle School

First Day of School, 2013!

Woohoo for the first day of 5th grade! Though I briefly saw my 6th graders as well, I spent most of the day with my 5th grade homeroom.  Holy cow, 5th and 6th grade is awesome.  You ask them to do something, and they do it.  You ask them to help out, and they fight over who gets to collect the garbage bags.  I talk to them about having helpers take care of our fish tank, tree frogs, and rats — including cleaning dirty fish water and wiping up rat pee — and they bug me the rest of the day, explaining why they would make excellent Zookeepers. Hahah. I love it.

Can’t say I miss 8th grade…

Anyhoo, here are some pictures of my lovely room, all set up for the first day!

Aren’t my objectives just adorable?


Thank you, teacher from CMS whose name starts with an A that I can’t remember just now, for this wonderful idea! Science homework for the week!


My welcome sign looks kind of wimpy when you look at the board as a whole… Oh well…


Supply station and library!


That ducky lamp was a big hit.


Apparently Gigi named the frogs Teenie and Weenie. :-/ I’m not sure which one this is…


Blinken or Nod… I can’t tell the two apart.
