I'm loving my class! It's so nice to be back in 1st grade this year.

They aren't running from my camera  just yet!

Missed this sweetie while at school! She starts pre-k after Labor Day

Every single student LOVED heidisongs

Having some fun at stations. The leis are a lifesaver.

Loving the vinyl numbers on desks instead of name tags. Hope they last for a while.

Everyone was engaged so they didn't even notice I had my camera out!

Perfect for grouping students during stations!!!
