Chicka Chicka Photo Album
In keeping with our "Chicka Chicka" theme, I took photos of all my students and put them into a photo album. I'm going to put it in our class library so the children can start learning each other's names. I put a little monkey on each shoulder for fun! They haven't seen the album yet because I just finished it. I expect a lot of giggling! (I do similar things with other class photos by putting Gingerbread men or other 'cartoon-type' characters in the photo and the children and their families LOVE it!). If you'd like a copy of the album, please visit my Tpt store!
Ahhhh, it's so nice to have a weekend for some R&R....Twenty four little ones is a bit much for me! Florida's class size amendment says we aren't supposed to have over 18. After Labor Day we will get a new teacher and I will go down to 18! (And that will make it our fourth week of school!) Whoo hoo!!! When I started teaching in 1978, I taught kindergarten with 27 little ones in a portable and no assistant. BUT, we weren't teaching them how to read and write, and little ones back then didn't seem to come with so many issues as they do today. So 18 today is plenty, plenty for me! I'm just curious, how many students do the rest of you have? Are you full day or half day kindergarten? Do you have an assistant?
