Day One

Ms. A's first #1 rule: Keep your blood on the inside. Ms. A's second #1 rule: Don't throw up on the teacher. Ms. A's third #1 rule: Don't step on the little kids. They stick to your shoes and you track them in on the carpet. If you can remember those three things we're going to get along together just fine. myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics Student One (in an aside to another student): She can't have three number one rules. Student Two: She's the teacher, she can do anything she wants. Student One: It doesn't make sense. Student Two: I don't think it's supposed to. Student One: I think I'm going to like this class. Student Two: Yeah, she's cool for a grown up. myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics Nineteen students, never have I had so few. I am certain it won't last. More will come; if not tomorrow, then after Labor Day.

I wouldn't have dreamed of sending you kids that hadn't mastered those rules in 1st grade, never mind fifth.

I don't understand how it is that the schools practically always open every year without incident. If I were a teacher, I would have organized a nationwide strike ages ago.

But what do I know? I'm an amoeba.

Ohhhhhh my gosh! I SO wish you not ANOTHER student all year! 19? WOW! That is fabulous! And honestly ... even if you gain 5 or 6... you would still be WAAAAAY under the avg class size here! Our elementary classes are 32-35 ... it's crazy! ( I think K and 1st have to be smaller, by law ... I think they might be 28... not sure.)

21 students. That's a nice, lucky number -- I'd like to stop there.

The most I've had is 45. The least I've had (offically) is 27. We won't be "offical" until after Labor Day.

Small classes are so nice for more individual teaching. Sure makes things easier. Here's hoping your class stays small!
