The Beginning of Teaching

If you follow me on instagram you've been able to join my journey of first year teaching. I am teaching first grade at a Christian school here in Germany where I live.
I have fourteen adorable little 6 and 7 year olds.....only 4 of which are boys.....the rest are chatter boxes. ☺

The two pictures above were taken on the first graders first day of school.... You see, in Germany you start reading and writing in first grade and it is a big deal to start school. Here first graders start  a week later than the rest of the students. The first day of school is a Saturday where the kids show up at school with their whole families, dressed in their Sunday's best, carrying their new school bags and their "cones". The other students prepare a little program and welcome them to this new chapter of their lives as students. It is always fun for the kids.

I honestly don't know who was more nervous.... the kids or me.☺ It was a fun day....and the last 5 weeks were great too! Teaching is the job for me......but I am thankful to have this week off....fall break. ☺
