Another Day with no school

Better late than never right? I am new to this whole blogging experience but I will give it a try. Volusia County started school on August 18, 2008 and I opened my door to a new group of children. Sixteen young people walked in and took their seats. We had a great day! I introduced the new reading series with our very first whole group lesson. I assessed some students on kindergarten high frequency words. I even got a math lesson in before special area. I did more than I thought I would on the first day. A nd the BEST part?? I got everyone home on the bus or parent pick-up. Mission accomplished. :)

Then we got the message school was postponed due to Tropical Storm Fay- Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and then even on Friday. It is Friday night and I am starting a blog.

Hopefully, we will all get back to school on Monday morning. I have watched the news and seen the flooding on the west side of our county. I only hope things get better for all those affected by the flooding and power outages. I can't wait to see what else this year brings because we have definitely started in an unusual way. Keep dry and I'll see you Monday morning for another 1st day of school.
