First Day Of School


First day of school according to Emily:

I was a big example because once I heard the rules I was a good girl. Every time I walked down the hall I was supposed to fold my arms, so I folded my arms. When ever he asked us to do one, two , three eyes on me, I did it. Then some of the morning kindergartners came in and told us we were going to be cooking with them. Mr. Bradshaw told us that we are going to make apple dumplings with them. Mr. Bradshaw is the nicest teacher that I've ever seen. He told us that we can earn stars. If we earn three stars then we can get an extra recess. He is such a nice teacher and he didn't yell at us. There are a bunch of people that I know in my class. Lots of people I know from school. Brieanna and Bryan are friends from church. I sat next to Bryan on my first day (he's my neighbor). When I came home from school I made sure to hang up my backpack. I wanted to be a good girl. This year all my friends have the same recess as me. We played together and did the monkey bars. We also saved a poor frog that everyone was trying to torture. We got to eat lunch together too. I came home as neat as I looked when I left for school. I didn't even mess up my hair!


First day of school according to Chase:

On my first day of school I set my alarm for 6:50. I got ready and caught the bus at 7:40. It took FOREVER to get to school. There were a million stops. We had an assembly first thing about what the expectations for the morning were. Then we went to class. We worked on a spelling and writing project. I wrote about my summer, what I did and what my favorite part was (mine was catching frogs). Next we had PE and talked about the rules and where our spots are. We had another assembly about what the recess rules were. Recess was not that good because it was only like three minutes because the assembly took up most of the time. Lunch rotation isn't as good as it could be because they don't give us enough time, and not all my friends are in my rotation. Then we had another assembly about more morning rules...they must have changed their minds. We wrapped everything up and our homework was to finish our writing about our summer vacation. I had already finished so I didn't have any homework. My teacher's name is Mrs. Steele. I really, really like her. She says we are going to be doing lots of fun things. We will do lots of art and reading projects. When she wants to get out attention she rings her bell and we have to be quiet immediately. If she uses her wind chime we have to be quiet and sitting down by the time it finishes making noise. I like my class. I know about half of the people in it from last year. The bad thing is that none of my friends are in it. I think this year is going to be pretty good. This is my first year without any wild, crazy bad kids in my class.

Chase,
Forgot to say how totally handsome you look. Is Grandma going to have to fly up there to beat all the girls away from my completely awesome grandson?
Love

Wow- Emily really is such a good girl- what are you always complaining about??? :)

Does Chase still have the new teacher? Did you talk to the principal? I liked his "they must have decided to change the rules." It seemed there weere a lot of them...
