I spent most of the morning with a bucket of hot, soapy water washing everything from the doors and window blinds to the cubbies and shelves. LOTS of work! But, I think everything is nice and clean for next week and my new class. Ms. Bennet kept the children out for a good long while and when she brought them in I just worked around them. Most ignored what I was doing but some watched and talked with me as I cleaned. I still have a TON of work to get done by Monday – but at least the I made a small dent in all my work today!
On another note, today, just 4 days before the very first day of school, we all finally got our class lists for next year! For me, that’s cutting it a little close! Lets see how it all breaks down:
Total # of Children: 21
Number of Boys: 8
Number of Girls: 13
Wow! Lots of girls – I hope they’re not all drama queens and get along okay! 🙂 I’m not too worried with my list though, I’m familiar with most the children already. There are a few who I fear aren’t ready for a pre-k class, but the pace will just have to be slower with them and hopefully they will catch up. I also have 2 children coming into my class who don’t speak English – a brand new experience for me! To top it off, neither of us know Spanish! I hope they are quick learners – because I’m not sure what to do about this dilemma…and I’m hoping it will all work out in the end!
