So I survived my first full week of school! We actually have been in school for 8 days, but the first week we didn't have kids until Wednesday. I literally was wiped out by Friday. It's not like I slept in til noon everyday on summer break... So most of my weekend was pretty nonproductive. I got sucked back into Lifetime TV and all the crazy movies on there. They are always about a love gone bad or a jealous boyfriend/girlfriend. I know...cheesy, but I kept watching one right after the other.
I have the same group of kids this year since I looped with my first graders to second. They are an amazing bunch of kids. I must say they were a little more chatty on the first day then a normal first day of school because they were all so familiar with each other. It's going to be a great year!!!
Since I have them again I had to change my classroom theme. Last year we had a ROCKSTAR theme. They were begging me towards the end of school to tell them what are new theme was going to be, but I told them they had to be surprised. I even got texts over the summer and puppy dog eyed pictures begging me to tell them the new theme. LOL!! But I held out and they sure were surprised on the first day of school when they walked into their Super Hero classroom.
Here are a few photos. I need to take more tomorrow so I can show you our new tables and seat covers.

|A dad in my class made this for me. I told him what I wanted and this is the|
hit of the classroom. That's my classroom phone inside. I also have 2 capes
hung up in the right corner. The kids love to wear them during Read to Self.
We just did the coolest art project on Friday. We made our own super heroes. Look at how cute they turned out.
I laugh every time I look at them. I was going to put up pictures of super heroes so they had something to look at, but I forgot. This is what they came up with all on their own. I thought they were each so creative on how they decorated their super hero. I am just finishing up on this small super hero unit. I would love for a couple of people to check it out and see what they think. Please leave me your email if you are able to check it out by 9pm PST.
I have a couple of different writing prompts included inside. There is also all the patterns to make the super hero. It was so much fun!!
