New School Year

Wow did this summer fly by!

This summer I received my Masters in Education and 
I went on the most amazing trip to Portugal and Italy! 

I have lots of family in Portugal, and it was so nice to see them. 
The last time I was in Portugal was 7 years ago!
I also went to the island of Madeira for the first time, 
and that is where my husband's family is from.  

After being in Portugal for a few weeks, 
my husband and I also went to Italy, because why not! 
It was truly a once in a lifetime experience 
as we went to Florence, Venice, and Rome. 

I LOVED this amazing trip and I cannot wait to go back!

I have some pictures below,
but the pictures doesn't do the beauty of these places justice.

Hands down the most BEAUTIFUL beach I have ever seen!!!

Venice, Italy

Rome, Italy
This was inside the beautiful Vatican, which is the most BEAUTIFUL church I have ever seen.

I started school this past week and I am teaching Kindergarten!
I am happy to say that I survived my first week!
Last year I taught a Kindergarten/First Grade combination class,
and the kinders are much different than the group I had last year...then again every group is different.
This year I need to really go over procedures many times throughout the day!

Here are some pictures of my classroom (chevron/hungry caterpillar theme):

Birthday Board

Here is my daily 5 board
I am going to try the daily 5 for the first time this year!
I started Read to Self and they didn't do too bad, 
but I have one student who likes to make noises...which makes us stop.
If you have any tips on the Daily 5 (especially in kindergarten) please let me know!
