I know many of you have already started school, we have too, kind of. Our upper grades all started last week, but because of our schedule and screening the new little ones our official first day of kindergarten is tomorrow!
I've been doing this awhile now, and I still get a little nervous when 7:50 a.m. nears and it's time to usher in the newbies! Having spent the last three school days meeting them, I'm anxious to get started. They are a cute bunch already entertaining me with their cuteness and things they have to say.
One little guy in the middle of his screening looked at me and said, "Mrs. Collins, I'm SO happy!"
I hope it lasts.
Then there was that little girl who pointed to me and asked her mother, "Is she going to be my teacher?"
Then shouted, "YES!" when he mother told her I would be.
I hope that lasts too!
So tomorrow is the day, and I think I'm ready for what they have in store for me. If I'm not I better be soon.
At least my room is kindergarten ready!

|Part of the Reading Corner|
|The back of my room, and the play house|
|The play house...everyone's favorite spot!|
|Inside the Playhouse, Newly painted and redecorated!|
I'm really fortunate to have such a great space to teach in. I hope the kids love it as much as I do.
I'm really looking forward to another year of sharing my kindergarten stories with all of you!
