Whew! We made it through our first week of school as teachers and parents! Between Suzanne and I we have a 7th grader, two 4th graders, a 2nd grader and a pre-schooler . . . it's been a very busy week!
We had some criers, no runners and no potty accidents this week so all in all I think we did okay.
Now we are gearing up for our Back to School Night. Even though we each have our own class of students, we do everything together . . . planning, prepping, recess duty, teaching small groups and differentiated whole group activities. So it makes sense that we have our Back to School Night together as well . . . makes it much more enjoyable!
This year we are using Prezi to help us with our presentation . . . it looks very professional and helps keep to things running smoothly.
Here is what it looks like when you are in the process of creating your presentation. You can choose from a variety of templates. I chose the one that looks like a bulletin board. Don't you love it? During presentation mode, it will glide from one section to the next going clockwise and end in the center with "Questions".
Here is a close-up of one of the sections of our presentation:
