I survived my first day back in the classroom after a glorious two week Christmas break.
I'm not going to lie. It was HARD to hear that alarm this morning and get out of bed. And I mean HARD!
Once I was dressed and ready to walk out the door, I felt good to go.
Can I just say how impressed I am with all of you that posted pictures on instagram of your fabulous lesson plans and creations?
I did none of that!
I finally sat down yesterday afternoon to start thinking about today's plans only to realize I brought absolutely nothing home to plan.
I knew I wanted to ease my students back into our routine. I wanted something hands-on that wouldn't require too much thinking, but that would get those brain waves flowing again.
I remembered something I pinned a few weeks ago that was perfect.
I sat the different activities up as stations and added a review with the teacher station. The activities were simple enough that my students didn't struggle. They brought back some ideas that we talked about before Christmas break.
It was seriously the best way to ease back into things.
Thank you so much for creating this packet, Miss Giraffe.
Tomorrow we dive head first into Order of Operations.
