Primates are Amazing!

Since I lived in the junior hall for the last ten years, I have always called the primary classes primates! They always seemed to be running in three million different directions! I will have to admit that I have been in a junior class for over eight years. So when I volunteered to move to a primary class, I thought it would be a breeze! Boy, was I wrong! I am plum tired and I am ready for a weekend of napping! These kids are like the energizer bunnies! They NEVER stop! They come into school on the first day so cute and adorable in their new clothes and shoes! Three days later, their stuff is everywhere and suddenly things go missing! A few moments are already standing out this school year. My one student insists on calling me "Mrs. J. Bellinger" because that is what is on my door. Another student is annoyed that I get a milkshake everyday and they don't! ( I drink Isagenix shakes everyday for lunch!) My adorable little grade one responded "All I want to do is learn how to read!" when I asked my students what they knew about math. They crack me up! My learning this week is that things will progress slowly! We can read to self for 6 minutes before someone starts to chat about Starwars or Princess books. We finished one phonics worksheet in 60 minutes and that was a miracle! Cutting out pictures of apples can be very hard work for kids who haven't had experience with scissors. Arm fart competitions have been banned in my classroom and of course there is a child who really doesn't care what we do as long as he can bug everyone in the room! I have named the child for my blog as BEAST (This is only to protect me from trouble.) Beast seems happy to never be on task and always has an inappropriate comment for everyone. BEAST needs to sit by himself and work and still only gets 1/4 of the work done that everyone else does. He would rather kick the radiator and make rattling noises to annoy everyone else. I have a challenge at hand! Look out BEAST, you may have met your match!

  See my patient son! 

See the door?  It leads to the Principal's office!

My students helped me move!  I have no idea where they put things!
 Check out my SMART BOARD!
This is what my classroom looked like in July!  Our custodian is one of the hardest working people I have ever met!  She has a summer schedule and don't even think of getting in her way!  One thing I must say is our school is always sparkling clean before the first day of school in September.  It will be a sad day in October when my favourite custodian retires.  Who ever follows her has big shoes to fill!
