After lunch, two of my class had to take something to the Head’s Office. They returned, grinning, with this little sticker
“It is for you, Miss, cos you are working so hard on your first day here” they said [The head had been into the class earlier, as had the deputy, to check all was well]
I had a really lovely day [but a little tiring – so much to take in] and everything went well. Sadly the little boy for whom I made the wordbags is off sick at the minute. Never mind, they will be useful next week.
To answer all your questions and comments…
Jane – I pay for the resources myself, but then I get to keep them to use in other schools. And £1.50 seemed a small outlay for such a useful box of bits.
Fat Dormouse & Jo – this is a VERY temp job – just 6 Fridays till half term- but there is the strong possibility of some more days soon.
EDL on A Shoestring – yes I have always resisted using Scrabble tiles in school because of the capitals – the idea of using lower case Junior ones only struck me this week!
Everyone else – thank you so much for all your kind comments and words of support and encouragement. I have been taken aback by the good wishes from so many people as I have returned to the classroom this week.
