The first day was a success! I loved meeting all of the students and getting to know a little bit about them. It was exciting listening to them tell about their fun summer adventures. We will continue to get to know each other well over the next few days. Today we read a story about how we are all different, but still the same in many ways. We also discussed how to be a good friend to others. I look forward to the next few days to begin developing our classroom community. Stay tuned for further updates on the news happenings of Room 17!
