A Day in the Life...

I'm linking up with Jessica at First Grade Nest with A Day in the Life of a Teacher. I'm back to school and my life is crazy hectic! I didn't even get pictures taken during the afternoon at school because it was so busy. Here is a little peek at my world. Be sure to check out what all of the other teachers are up to!!
Coffee is my MUST in the morning! Today it was paired with oatmeal, and my sleeping hubby. hehe :) Pilot life is crazy too-so I don't mind that he sleeps a little later than me; he's always ready to go when our daughter wakes up and this makes my morning MUCH easier when he is home!

Time for school. First thing we do after we all go to the cafeteria for breakfast is calendar. Check out my chevron decor set here!

Next is center time. I do my own spin on Daily 5. But for now, we're still getting used to working quietly in centers. Today we used our computers, worked on Read to Self, made our names in play dough, and worked on matching some rhyming pictures!

Like I said earlier; things are still a little bit crazy in kindergarten! I was trying so hard to take pictures of everything, but I pretty much missed the afternoon! Our afternoons include specials, math stations, and recess.. But after all of that, I'm ready to get home to see my sweet family.. Every day I sit in this traffic, but I have the best welcoming committee ever when I finally get home! :)


Another plus on the days I have my hubby at home- he cooks! Tonight was quesadillas, which was a first for Amelia.. but she LOVED it!
After dinner we hung out in Amelia's room for a bit to look at all of the books she hadn't looked at already today! This little girl is OBSESSED with books, and of course I love it! She and her daddy had already read just about every book in our basement and her books on the first floor.. The ones in her bedroom were catching her attention!

To finish off this day, we decided to hit up Brusters. We asked Amelia if she wanted to get ice cream, and she said "yeh" and walked towards the door. So we can blame her for this one! ;)

I hope all of you are enjoying getting back in the swing of things!!! Be sure to check out First Grade Nest to see what the other teachers are up to!!
