I am a little bit late linking up this week because you know what, the laundry pile was massive, that is the sole reason I have not been able to do a blog post, seriously.
In my Currently post I mentioned that I was hoping to get a job for the new school year in Australia and I guess there must have been so many of you crossing fingers, sending wishes and prayers because on Monday night I got a call from principal asking me if I would be interested in a teaching position. Of course I said I would have to think about it :) which I did for a nano second and then said YES! I will be job sharing with a teacher in a Grade 3 classroom for 3 days. I am sooo excited because I have some of my sweeties from last year! We started school on a Wednesday which was my day and because it was a late appointment for the class the parents and students didn't know they were getting me. The look on their faces when they walked in the door was priceless! (in a good way) I got a lot of hugs and squeezes, I even got a kiss on the cheek from a parent! It was the best way to start the school year and I am completely in love with my class.
This is the view from my new classroom. Nice huh!
My own kids started school as well. They are getting so big!
I don't have any classroom photos yet because we haven't had time to set anything up! So I am going to share one of our art works we completed this week. Who doesn't love doing art in the first week of school.
I plan on doing a blog post in the next couple of days to show the steps we did to create these masterpieces! I love how they all turned out
It is a long weekend here for Regatta Day on Monday which is a boat race, hence the above art work :) We are heading in to the wharf area to check out the Wooden Boat Festival so I don't have any pics as yet.
I ordered a new teacher planner this week and am waiting on its arrival but in the meantime I have been using a template I created. It is simple and works for me.
Hope you all have a great week!
