We had such a great first day of fourth grade HOWEVER, the only picture I captured throughout the day was of Asher losing his tooth, just minutes upon arrival! Other highlights of the day include the guessing game we played to learn about me (some students think I’m 25 while others guessed me to be 72 :/) , the Two Truths and a Lie game to learn about each other, finding a reading book and starting our reading log (I’ve asked them to read 20 minutes tonight and every night for the remainder of the school year… the reading log should go home and return to school EVERY day), and…we met our Kindergarten bus buddies (who we taught how to do “Cooling Breaths” to calm down when we are mad or when we are hot. Looking forward to another great day in 4th grade tomorrow and hopefully I can remember to take a few more pictures!
