Kindergarten by the Numbers Part 2













I am 2 days removed from Christmas break, I now have
18 children in my class. 11 boys, 7 girls. 
1 set of twins who I still have a hard time telling apart.
I arrived at school at 7:00 and left at 2:45.
We just completed day number 74 of our kindergarten year, 106 left to go.
Our school day is 6 hours long.
We have had 1 snow day and 1, 2-hour delayed opening.
Today I tied 12 shoes,
applied 1 band-aid.
opened 1 box of tissues and one bottle of Purel,
watered 4 plants,
chased 2 children down the hall and
Filled 18 folders with 2 notices from the office.
I read 2 books, watched 1 movie.
I taught 18 children how to count by 10's, how to build words with the short "a" sound, how to say please and thank you, how to apologize to a friend, how to read a thermometer and the meaning of the word "superb".
I zipped 5 jackets, helped with 6 mittens and 4 backpacks,
 gave more hugs than I can count and there are only...
26 more school days until February vacation!
